    Sky Commentary Quiz

    Post by bramhallram on Mon 07 Dec 2015, 8:55 am

    After enduring the latest Sky commentary on one of our live matches I was seriously considering setting up a new quiz along the lines of our Guess the Score

    For this quiz you would have to predict when the Sky commentator, or his parrot-like helper, will make a reference to the fact that Martin hasn't scored for a few games.

    I timed the first reference yesterday at around five minutes into the game. Obviously it gets mentioned constantly throughout the game, but only the first reference would count.

    And on the subject of Sky, it's always good to hear the views of an unbiased co-commentator like Andy Hinchcliffe who has no connection with either club. Oh, wait a minute...

    And he is a typical manc, doesn't know when to stop talking and believes his opinion is a fact.

    We would also have won Sky Commentator Bingo inside the first half if we'd had a page full of Craig Forsyth, Will Hughes and Cruciate .....

    That little game doesn't have a long life expectancy. We play BHA next and we all know that Coldplay always does for them.

    I would agree that job must be hard to fill but Higginbottom is one of the better ones, not the most eloquent but he at least gives some decent tactical insight, picks things up quickly and gives his opinion free from bias or fright of calling an individual player. He is for certain better than Don Goodman, or some of the puppets they use on the BBC like Jenas, Murphy or the awful Kevin Kilbane Sleep .
