Think this is poor. I appreciate people get info from mobile devices now in a way that wasn't available in most of James Alexander Gordon's day but you can't be on your mobile if you're driving. 

As an aside Pat Murphy soon has what looks like an interesting book out about Sports Report - comes out in September

Adrian Durham does em too quick and I can never process the information.

Surprised he doesn't give the wrong scores just to wind punters up

Me neither really.

I don't watch MOTD either though. Seems the older I get the less interested in listening to the results at a set time. I've all night, and so many opportunities to find out the results.

That's me all over, sod everyone else, it's irrelevant unless it's the end of the season run in.

Be  interesting in particular, to see how he references , if at all, Stuart Hall's contribution to the programme over many years ?

Yeah good point. It'll be good to read about some of the old characters of broadcasting like Peter Jones, Bryon Butler etc. Plus some of the types who started big broadcasting careers elsewhere on Sports Report - Ian Darke, Jeff Stelling, Peter Brackley etc.

I have to say I found Hall's florid match summaries irritating. When he was at Bolton there was always a faux Lancashire lobbed in at some point.
