Manish's witterings reached a new low tonight when summing up the Arsenal v Man City game and discussing City's relatively unknown Romanian keeper Costel Pantillimon who's on loan from Timisoara by saying "of course they (City) cannot compete financially in terms of players on the pitch tonight".......????

Bye Manish.

There was a classic tonight on Channel 5 coverage of Spurs v POAK. Dave Woods and Graham Taylor insisted for about 10 minutes that Defoe's goal was disallowed for offside rather than a foul, someone obviously had a word in the ear before a climbdown. No apology to the assistant however.

Before the Fleetwood Town v.Yeovil Town match, the commentator mentioned that Yeovil Town reached the 5th Round as a non-league club in 1949, then added 'Can you imagine that happening now?' as though it was impossible.
I seem to remember only last season Crawley Town reached the 5th round, going out to ManYoo (as did Yeovil).
Kidderminster and Blyth Spartans have also reached the 5th round.

The match commentator or his 'expert summariser'? Not unexpected if the latter but bad form if the former.

To be honest, I can't remember who said it, but think it was the commentator as it was said before the match kicked off but after the start of the actual coverage rather than the pre-match studio stuff.

Re: [jrev61] Sports presenters mistakes [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Not mistakes as such, but still nonense, were the commentator's statements during the AFC Totton v Bristol Rovers game. Not content with continually mentioning the day jobs of the Totton players he added, at least:

* 'x' is a recruitment consultant for boardroom level vacancies in the oil and gas industry. Six figure salaries there, so 'x' is probably to blame for the current recession.

* 'y' works in bidet supply/fitting. So if you are after a bidet 'y' is your man.

Of course, if you did want a bidet, the first thing you would check before contacting a company was whether one of their employees was a semi-pro footballer Crazy

Also, the commentator had said he'd never heard of Totton before this cup run. Nice to see he knows his football. They're hardly an obscure team. Maybe the ground had been transported in overnight just to play these Cup matches.

To alot of League fans and armchair Premiership supporters AFC Totton are an obscure team they'd never have heard of before, BUT he was actually referring to the town of Totton, when he made this comment, which in my opinion is even more thick! You may not have heard of the football club, but i'd say alot more people will have heard of the fairly-decent sized town of Totton, near to Southampton! He was acting like it was some tiny village tucked away in the middle of nowhere!

I agree, but he's not an armchair fan, his job is commentating on football.

I think a lot of people wouldn't know where Totton is to be fair and I read something about a Yeovil fan thinking their game at Fleetwood was in Hampshire, he was thinking of Fleet!

How is that being perfect - If knowing that FLEET is different from FLEETWOOD is the definition of perfect then yes, Isaac, I'm a bloody saint!

The one that keeps getting on my tits is when they talk about Genk with a hard 'G'. If it weren't for Ruud Gullit I might have more sympathy but seriously, most people I know it's pronounced 'Henk' (or 'Khenk') even if they know little about languages.

I freely admit that Mrs UKPunk is far more intelligent than I am, but as far as geography is concerned she really hasn't got much of a clue. The fact that she doesn't know where Totton or Fleetwood are certainly doesn't make her thick!!

Re: [UKPunk] Sports presenters mistakes [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I think there are character traits found in your average non-league football fanatic which are similar to those found in your average locational geography geek, trainspotter, linguist etc - anything where things can be classified and ticked off. I know I have these traits and it is very rare that I cannot instantly assign any place in the UK to a county but it's just how my brain works. My sister got ten A*s in her GCSEs, 3 As at A-level and a 2.1 at Oxford but she still thinks I'm the clever one because I can drive from Reading to Barnet without looking at a map. Different brains find different things easy or hard.

My wife can also drive from Rading to Barnet without a map (she can't read a map anyway).
However, she might phone my halfway there to say she is lost, and needs directions.

I have lent her my Sat Nav, but she can't find the on-switchUnsure
