What a dreadful article by a dreadful human being

I haven’t listened to BBC Radio Leics for a good few years now but, genuine question, why do you dislike him so much? Just curious.

Even now, people in Leicester still say "when did you know?" The question is a simple one. In a season that provided one of the most incredible sporting stories ever, when did you know it was done?

 

I have spoken much and listened much about our title winning season, but I've never heard or said the words, "when did you know?" in regards to it.

 

The article title should be...

When he starts commentating about Leicester City and not what he's doing whilst he's supposed to be talking about Leicester City, then maybe we will.

Makes a change, he's normally talking about what he had for lunch or his trip to the ground

Or about the bus lane he can see from the commentary gantry

I thought it was a good article. 
Enjoy reading other peoples thoughts, feelings and experiences of the title win.

I met him on one of the Champions League trips, him Matt Elliott and Gerry Taggart. Seemed a sound chap, don’t get the hatred for him.

Always wanted to find out what happened between him and Alan Young.

Good question.

 

I'm guessing at an incident at Stringer's gaff...  along the lines of Michael Barrymore, Stuart Lubbock and a swimming pool.

Pure Partridge as ever. 

That's it, it reads like a parody of something. I presume he's been told to overplay it but it all seems forced and rather fake in places.

Throw in fabrications of scenarios. 

 

I’m not a father but I’ve never ever heard of fathers taking their two month old babies out for a walk at 7am on a Monday morning. Even less so without a push chair

Okay. I am a father, and it is completely believable, especially if you aren't on a 9-5 job. Those slings can be sleep factories, and a baby carriage (2 months) is often more hassle than it's worth.

Fair enough. It just seems odd to me
