And a complete cunt to boot
Surely the article cannot live up to this?
I'd almost forgotten that :'D
That could be the funniest thing he has ever said, shame he didn't mean it that way.
I am a fuckwit
unfortunately, while Gogarty was a wide-eyed naive youth and susceptible to such things
Lovejoy is a self-obsessed conceited tard whose brain will presumably blank out anything negative about him without his even realising
I used to have a bit of a thing for him.
Then that cookery show happened
Then I'm sure I spied him at Glasto last week with a lady love more than half his age, and that put me off.
Then I read this.
Then I just checked that website. Did you see the comments under? The Nathan Barley ones stood out for me.
Such a shame.
is that he thinks he's going to be seen as some broadcasting free thinker and pioneer, and everyone else sees him as that bloke off the cookery show doing an online project because, by his own words, Murdoch wasn't about to offer him a stake in Sky Sports.
Search out When Saturday Comes' review of Lovejoy's football book, because as easy as the target is it's a triumph of ego putdown.
'First, it’s clear that being Tim Lovejoy requires a very special blend of arrogance and ignorance. When he’s not listing his media achievements with a breathtaking lack of guile, he’s sneering at those “sad” enough to take an interest in football history, revealing his utter cluelessness about life outside the Premier League (in a section called “Know Your Silverware”, he refers to “League Three”) and making sundry gaffes, major and minor. He names Johan Cruyff as his all-time favourite player, then admits he’s only seen that five-second World Cup clip of the Cruyff turn. Grumbling about footballers’ musical tastes, he complains that “all you’ll hear blasting out of the team dressing room is R&B, rather than what the rest of the country is listening to” – by which he means indie bands. Everywhere there are jaw-dropping illustrations of insularity, self-satisfaction and a startlingly small mind.'
Lovejoy is the epitome of the Johnny Come Lately football fan and the biggest wanker in the media, so it's great to see him dismantled like this. Didn't he used to support Watford?
and nobody thought to do the decent thing?
He was saying that he was arrogant. What has he got to be arrogant about? Being a bit thick and entirely humourless?
acting really really bored and as though you should just watch to see him going through the motions of presenting.
He's a tool.
