    I generally like him, as he's grown on me a lot in the past year or so, but he's having a shocking game today on 5live.

    He's still very bitter about us dumping him, anytime a 50/50 goes our way he's up in arms, screaming about how its one of the worse things ever. Defines the phrase ABU.

    As a person he seems alright and he's quite good at dancing, but his punditry is absolutely terrible imo. The kind of pundit who will be saying a Gerrard and Lampard midfield will win the Euros for England. And he looks like his wife.

    Dunno about that. I heard him interviewed not so long ago where he said he's still a united fan.

    Did he say he was a fan? I remember because I was listing to 606 a while back (yeah.. dont anymore) when he was still at Derby.. It was after a good weekend and the rival fan called him a rag, to which he replied he never supported United, he was a Liverpool fan growing up.

    This.

    I kind of get the feeling that he wants to say the banal popular opinion to appeal to the audience. He even seems takes an incredulous tone in his delivery of the said banal statement for effect.

    He's a Liverpool fan. Having said that he often says that he wasn't good enough for United.

    He talks some absolute fecking shit. That said, you have to credit that he will always say what he thinks.

    Also, fair play to him the other day. When we were 3rd back at the start of the season a Newcastle cab driver told him we'd finish top four and he laughed - promising he'd buy him a brand new cab if we did. The cab driver rang up his show last week to remind him and he said he'll remain true to his word.

    What do you mean "no he doesnt", yes he does, I've heard and seen it before.
    Blackpool last season when Rafael went into whoever it was he went into, Mcmanaman(a freaking scouser) was there saying "could have been given". He was going ape shit mental "No that's a stone wall penalty".
    He was at it again last week, he just seems to get very angry when whinging about decisions going our way.

    I mean he is not "ABU" in any way, shape or form.

    I am not proud of this, but I have read his autobiography. Have you?

    He gets far too angry when we get dodgy decisions to not be a ABU. I hope he's on tonight so you can see for yourself. And no, I havent read his autobiography, I'm not a spastic.

    I think he's like that with all teams but. He gets hysterical about everything. I dont think he's got any agenda, he's just passionate about football and calls it as he see's it.

    Yet you believe he "defines" ABU.

    Perhaps, I haven't noticed it with other teams but then I'm probably not paying much attention if it's any other team. But Blackpool last season, he was just too much of a bell-end.

    Oh right so in order to establish whether one likes or dislikes United you must read their autobiography first?

    No, you just invent a load of shit and make a decision based on that. It's working well for you.

    Didn't invent anything, I've given examples, it's not my fault you saw neither. But I'll be sure to read his autobiography.

    It is shit. But you will acknowledge that he is anything but ABU if you do.

    He's better at communicating than most ex pros, but doesn't bring anything insightful to the commentary booth, however anything is impressive next to Alan I'm a huge fecking tool Green.

    He's a complete fecking moron. The only good bit was when he was on a phone-in and someone rang up to say he was a despicable piece of gamesmanship turd.
