It is lovely to be able to write the words “late Manchester United comeback”. Even better when I can attach them to the words “five points clear” and “season defining victory.” This was a hefty win and no mistake.
A tough result against the biggest ‘Pool’ in the division, such a shame Sky’s big two couldn’t report on it for us. I have a few suggestions for them over the coming weeks
Potential New Careers for Andy Gray and Richard Keys:
Somebody better go down to Skysports and explain the 21st Century to them…
Richard: Bingo Announcer
The question really is whether or not he has actually been doing anything else all these years, it certainly suits his talent level. “Number 45 Richard. Number P45 please.”
Andy: Michael Jackson Impersonator
That crotch-grab in Andy Gray’s youtube video was highly reminiscent of the king of pop himself. Perhaps it is unfair of me to associate Michael Jackson with Gray though. I apologise to fans.
Andy: Rab C Nesbitt
There is a raft of retro television on our screens now including Hawaii 5-0 and a redux Doctor Who. BBC producers might be put off by the fact Gray is likely to be less articulate than the original.
Richard: Dart Board
A bit wistful this one, but I have never been a great darts player and have been known to often hit the outer edges of the circle. This needs testing of course, but I reckon if the board featured Richard Keys’ face then many of us would hit dead centre every time. Perhaps even go through the wall.
