Which football players would you most like to see host which daytime TV show and why?
"I am thrilled to be joining Martin and Lucy on Homes Under The Hammer. I have a passion for property and look forward to meeting people on the show who share that passion."
David Seaman was in much underrated childrens tv programme 'hider in the house'.
He was hiding in a house. Great stuff.
because he would be really good with his personality and that.
saps and warny, please take note. This is the correct format and content of response to this thread.
Tonton Zola Moukoko hosting the weather
Because he's very shy and retiring, doesn't speak amazing English and isn't a qualified meteorologist.
How's he meant to feed his family?
You build them up and knock them down, Ant. It's just not on.
Temporarily named one of our meeting rooms after him and how did he repay us? Missed a penalty by showing off in a five-a-side match in his honour.
What more do you want?
Gabriel Batistuta presenting Rip Off Britain because his chemistry with the public, particularly the old folks would be delightful to see.
He'd probably cost a packet though eh!
Despite having completed his coaching badges in Argentina, he currently has no involvement with football, instead he prefers to play polo and golf, he was quoted saying 'I don't like football, it's only my job'. Speaking in a television interview in Argentina, Batistuta said the pain suffered in his ankles after retiring in 2005 became so intense that he "urinated in bed with the toilet only a few steps away. I couldn't move." He visited a doctor he knew asking his legs be amputated, but the doctor turned down his request.
Present the culture bit on BBC World
That would genuinely be amazing
you're a fucking disgrace Ant.
(*and Zimbabwean time is very similar to our own)
This could have been an interesting and fun thread but you lot had to fuck it all up as usual didn't you.
Place in the sun
Mainly so he can walk around with his top off.
i hope they refer to him as 'footballer and entrepreneur'
reckon he'd be good at being sat doing nothing for ages
Just to see him run into some of the guests and knock them over.
Think this is all in vein though, this is a washout.
Probably in a role that would require him to be a) a bit crocked and b) crying.
Phil Jones needs to do something like Tommorow's world, or something that requires him to wear a lab coat because:
Genuinely thought this could be my 250+ classic, my legacy on this hellhole :(
I distinctly remember laughing at someone's (fine, it was me) One Man and N'Gog pitch.
Summary: fuck's sake Tony.
Well I've never. You're going on my list of enemies, Tony.
doing Pet Rescue, because he's a nice man who cares about animals, or so you'd imagine.
I think his experience coaching the youth team at United would translate to caring about poorly kittens.
You've restored a little bit of my faith in this place
perhaps others will learn from me?
'callous smiter of horses' in Romanian.
I imagine you fancy Craig Gardner would be an excellent TV horticulturist!
(scared of gardens).
he loves the drama
but Fabio Cannavaro in Can't Pay? We'll Take It Away!
I don't really know why, but I'm imagining lots of reflective monologues in which he would say something funny.
or whatever it's called where they find and annoy cowboy builders.
because I imagine lawro would be very sympathetic and soothing to the old grannies who have been ripped off and also good at chasing cowboy builders around with a microphone.
Lawro doesn't give a fig about anyone or anything
watching Sky Sports Super Sunday.
Both thinking "Ah, so that's how it's supposed to be done"
But instead of giving advice on how to build a roof with dry vegetation such as straw, water reed, sedge, rushes, or heather, layering the vegetation so as to shed water away from the inner roof he could just chop the home owner's legs away from under them like the thug he is.
I think Juan Mata and Gaizka Mendieta could do a bang-up job of presenting an indie/alternative music show on MTV2. (Though MTV2 probably doesn't exist anymore, does it?)
