Stringer article on BBC

So annoying that he's managed to make it about him. And the errors that BBC Sport let through are pathetic - Mahrez scored the 2nd at Man City.

Read the first three  paragraphs and wondered if I was on the Wikipedia entry for him.

What an absolute bell lol

Furious. Can't believe he forgot jumpers and being Forest's biggest rivals.

Can see what he’s trying to do in this piece but unfortunately it just shows that he’s not a writer. Most BBC Local Radio reporters will have been to university and studied a journalism course that requires them to do written pieces as well as broadcast pieces as part of their training.

 

Stringer’s the work experience kid come good and, when he’s trying to turn his hand to writing pieces, it shows.

Beeb journalists are simply dumbed down PR machines trained to say the right things and love the right people, Stringer is certainly no exception to that rule. Look at the Chief BBC sport correspondent, Phil McNumpty.

It wasn’t good, but, neither was it entirely awful…. Some nice bits mixed with truly diabolical bits! The champagne cork was a nice metaphor I thought…

 

He’s a bit of a clown, but, he’s a genuine fan and his heart is in the right place…

 

To get on this game you have to be a bit of a self promoter and he’s not afraid to do that!
