As I say, the only possible consolation in his comms, is how unintentionally funny he is, that made me laugh so much, maybe only because we just had won.He's just so unspeakably poor
Love how he told everyone to go out and do whatever they liked to celebrate, only to then retract and say "within restrictions"
Obviously got yelled at by a producer in his headset
Oh and as Sledger didn't mention, he also said people shouldn't go into work tomorrow, and take the day off, on an advertising-led channel sure all the companies paying mega-bucks for their ads would be delighted, at much of their workforce being encouraged to throw a sickie.I’ve always felt this way about him before but tonight he just brought shame upon his family.
No, you didn't imagine it. This is exactly what he said. My biggest gripe was when he started to deliver his eulogy to Denmark's tournament performance a full five minutes before the end of extra time, thereby tempting fate in a way that just invited the footballing gods to make sure that they equalised and then won the penalty shoot-out. Perhaps the only reason that didn't happen was the 30m viewers, as one, directing a stream of abuse towards their tellies that would even make Roy Keane blush.Did I imagine it amongst the delirium of England's win or was Matterface's call of Denmark being reduced to 10 men for the second half of extra time something like "I understand that Denmark have one less member of staff currently on the pitch."
Followed by "Yes, I can confirm, Denmark are down to 9 men. [Pause while somebody informs him how many players are in a football team] "I'm sorry, down to 10 men."
Member of staff!
The one picture that I've seen on Matterface had him looking like Laurence Fox, which is an even better reason to dislike him.Just found out he's apparently a dead ringer for Ms Sledger's dickhead ex husband as well, and so I now have even more of a reason to dislike both of these people
