It’s not that I want the football commentators to try and sell every game as a classic even when it clearly isn’t. I appreciate their willingness to be honest about their product. But having bloody Lawro gloomily commenting about how bad the game is every 30 seconds for the whole bloody match really doesn’t add to its value as a piece of entertainment. It’s like watching football with Eeyore sitting on your shoulder.

Some commentators remind me of Marvin the android from Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy – so damn depressing you want to cut your wrists…
That sounds like Lawrenson to a T. Not exactly bubbly even when the football is exciting.
