Listen To A Sports Commentary Masterclass.

‘Like Betamax, they don’t make them like him any more.’

Ray Hudson is the world’s greatest sports commentator, (discounting Alan Partidge), and the video above proves exactly why.

The former Newcastle United player turned pundit for beIN Sports likes to break down commentary walls and step over onto the other side when players like Ronaldo and Messi score goals.

Gary Lineker Is Taking A Pounding On Twitter.

Gary Lineker, famous for being one of England’s greatest football players, is taking a royal pounding on twitter and it would take someone completely devoid of any humour not to find it funny.

How has this come about? Well a few years back Gary confessed that during the 1990 World Cup match against Ireland he had a bit of an accident and was caught short while playing, (see video above). This sort of thing happens all the time to sportsmen and Lineker being the consummate professional sorted himself out, by wiping his arse on the pitch, and continued to play.

Somehow 24 years later the incident has come back to haunt Gary with people on Twitter reminding the ex-footballer he touched cloth in front of millions of viewers by tweeting: ‘You shat on the pitch,’ at every conceivable chance they get. Infuriated with their troll-like behaviour Lineker embarked on a mass blocking this week which, as any person with even passing knowledge of the Internet will tell you, never, ever works.

Some Rain Fell At A Football Match.

If you were unfortunate enough to sit through the France v Ukraine Euro 2012 match yesterday you would have witnessed commentators and sports pundits claim that the thunder storm which, suspended play for an hour, was of biblical proportions.

ITV’s Adrian Chiles, once expertly described as ‘a thumb in a suit‘ was on the brink of launching into an end of days rant such was the hysteria surrounding nothing more than some thunder and lightening which lasted only half an hour.

Of course with no actual football to broadcast for a full hour the cameras turned on the fans who, in typical sports fan style, made the most of the short lived inconvenience.

Rangers F.C. The Movie.

With news of a TV movie being made about the current Leveson Inquiry, into the practises and ethics of the British press, we think that the ongoing epic saga centred around Glasgow Rangers Football Club should also be considered for  a film adaptation.

Let’s face it, those of us familiar with this story know that since the club’s entry into administration back in February there’s been a series of shocking revelations, accusations of double dealings and deceit. Also, there’s a solid cast of main characters and the story up till now has been filled with outrageous twists and turns.

But what if this extraordinary confusing chronicle, about one of Glasgow’s most famous clubs, received a big screen adaptation? Who would flesh out those involved? We tried to come up with some suggestions and before this kicks off into an all too familiar stramash about Rangers and Celtic remember, this is just for a bit of much needed light relief from a completely neutral standpoint.

So sit back doon on yer arse and put oot that molotov cocktail.
