It's only a couple of years since he was a regular on 5 Live's Monday Night Club. Often made a game more interesting than it really was.

Just read on his wiki entry that he finished his career at Dulwich Hamlet FC, which was a five minute walk from my old flat in London. Used to pass the ground on my walk to and from Sainsburys.

He was local to Barnet and I think he started his journalistic career with  a local weekly paper.  Often attended games at Underhill when he had a Saturday off.


The voice of football; he seemed to be around forever. RIP.

His commentaries were part of my childhood and more. RIP

Yes, exactly that.



Genuinely a great commentator of the game.
