Telly pun­dits are full of gob sh*te

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY OCTOBER 11 -

IT’S been an­other great week­end for football pun­ditry.

First off, we had this gem about Chelsea on

from fence-paint­ing fan Alan Shearer “I’m not com­par­ing them to Barcelona, but they’re the near­est thing we’ve got to Barcelona.”

Hard to top, but no prob­lem for se­rial buf­foon Garth Crooks.

Quite how some­one so clearly clue­less about footie has chalked up two decades work­ing for the Beeb is any­one’s guess.

But for com­edy value alone, he’s the gift that keeps on giv­ing.

His “Team of the Week” on the BBC web­site is al­ways a bag of bol­locks, but he sank be­low his usual low stan­dards when wax­ing lyri­cal about West Brom’s James Mor­ri­son.

“This is a player Roy Hodgson should now be tak­ing a keen in­ter­est in,” he said.

Aye Garth. Shame he’s got 23 caps – for SCOT­LAND.
