Hasn't Gary Croft replaced Alan Buckley for home games? AB never did away games and usually RH try to get an ex Town player for those.



On the issue of co-commentators, while it makes me feel old, 2 of RH's better recent co-commentators are also from that Slade-era team, namely Paul Bolland, who has done a couple of Town away games and left me wishing he was in our team still, and Tom Newey, who has done mainly Scunny games I think, but seems quite knowledgeable.

The version where England win Italia 90 isn’t that different to be honest.

The Daily Mail employ lip readers to establish that Gazza’s tears induce pent up desires in Gary Lineker. As Gazza blubbers, Gary turns to Sir Bobby and says, “I really want him”, not “Have a word with him”.

Gary and Gazza elope and set up a string of sh1t bars in Spanish seaside resorts

Steve Hodge and Steve Bull replace the lovestruck Spurs duo in the Final. Hodge. Bull. 1-0. Goals pay the rent and Bull does his share.

Steve Bull signs a lucrative deal to promote British beef in the wake of the BSE scandal. “Bully’s Beef - you’d be mad not to”

Poses with Gummer.

By the way, i think we would have beaten the Argies in the final had we got there.

All of the co commentators have been effective so far and would not wish to return to a regular replacement for Buckley. Mix it up but please not Gwilym Lloyd!

Quoted from Croxton
Jordan was well researched about both teams and dovetailed well with Lloyd Griffiths. He has extensive experience commentating across the divisions and interviewing management figures. I would still like to think JT is our main man but perhaps he is seeking to ease into part time as far as long away trips are concerned.
I certainly think he needs to have a thicker skin and not tweet about 'feelings'.

This is probably the case. I believe Jordan lives down south and that is why he usually does the games in that area...

Quoted from Mikey_345
I love JT but over the last few years his constant negativity has warn abit thin now...

I’ve said elsewhere now we see the game with commentary you realise how much is called wrong.  For example he was itching to have a go at Gibson last Saturday for been offside so much so he didn’t notice it wasn’t him - and that isn’t an isolated incident.

I unfortunately think it’s due a change up and I really hate saying it as I grew up listening to him commentating on us.


Could be due to that fact that in the main we have been crap.

Just one of the anti-Hurst comments on their forum although some would like him back

In an alternate universe, Chris Waddle’s angled drive ricochets in off the post against West Germany in the 1990 WC Semi

Gazza holds back. Lineker holds it in. England hold on.

Diego does a number on us in the Final, mimes drinking a cup of tea - Alex Morgan style -  and captains Argentina to back-to-back World Cup victories.

The Sun gives away free airfix kits of the Belgrano, with bits missing, for the whole of the latter half of 1990 and beyond.

Rupert Murdoch orders The News of The World to hack the phones of Argentine celebrities but succeeds only in bugging a rickety villa owned by Aussie art dealers.

Fray Bentos pies are banned from UK supermarket shelves, even th...

Holloway needs to realise it’s a journalists job to ask questions. Simple. Struck me as unnecessarily angry last night. If JT has his tongue up Holloway’sarse when we performed badly people would soon be moaning.

I know JT can come over all Eeyorish on the commentary, but IH needs to suck up the questions and get on with making sure he doesn’t get asked difficult questions in the first place.

The whole match is on youtube now:



My general overview: Crawley looked like an average L2 team, and we looked better than them. Waterfall and Rose were immense.
Can't see us being in a relegation battle come the season end.

Cards on the table... I'm playing devil's advocate here.

I can't abide cheating, particularly in sport but that's no doubt as a result of the British sense of fair play. One of the really interesting aspects to come out of the Diego film is various commentators tell how many Latinos have a different perspective. They saw the Hand of God as being like a petulant street kid using his guile to get one over a slow witted member of the aristocracy. They think the rules are there to be broken if you're streetwise enough to get away with it. Something most of us would baulk at in the UK, when it comes to sport anyway.

I was livid when Maradona performed his infamous Hand of God. It was even more galling to see them then go on...

First glimpse I had of him was Wembley 1980. This was a precursor to his World Cup goal against us, when he nonchalantly waltzed past the entire England defence and poked the ball just past the post. Would have been up there with the other one had it gone in. 55 seconds in.

For a bit of balance, and to be fair to IH, it does seem that we are definitely more affected by covid than the majority of other teams are. We have a board that take financial prudence to the extreme and he had the double whammy of losing a good chunk of last years squad that he would have retained, and not getting the experienced players he wanted for this season, due to our insistence on trimming everything to the bone and adding the covid clause to contract negotiations in case the season never got underway. There was also the introduction of the salary cap on top of all that, although we did state that the cap was wanted and would be the amount we went with regardless. There now being no chance of extending the budget even if we wanted...

My enduring memory of Maradona is not the handball. That was cheating but it isn’t the sort of cheating that made me despise him. It was in the 1994 World Cup when he ran full tilt towards the camera and there was this horribly distorted face clearly full of some sort of drugs filling the TV screen.  He tested positive shortly after.

Still a cracking goal mind.
