I would be a huge supporter of Tony, the reverse in fact. But in the case of this thread I don't think he is disrespectful, but as I've said before his humour isn't great. That said the Linger comment and the Do you have to response made me smile. Death is serious enough you gotta laugh sometimes. My fondest memories of my parents wakes were the funny stories about them their lives and the things they got up to, so some humour in death is good. Tony just needs to edit more and up his game.

or do one and give us all peace.

Loved Jimmy Armfield on co-commentary on 5live or before that BBC Radio 2. Great knowledge of the game and completely unbiased. You realised he genuinely loved it. Many the evening he'd have been commentating on games with me listening in my room supposed to be doing my homework. Seemed a real gent.

That's a similar experience to mine. Really informative football man, calm, and got his point across really well. Nearly like sitting beside your grandfather at a match and him explaining the game to you.

There are unconfirmed reports that England World Cup 1966 squad member Jimmy Armfield's last words were "They think it's all over...it is now"
