I don’t know about anyone else but I’m sick of the above mentioned two commentators on Sky Sports.
They are biased towards ‘Sir Alex, Wayne, Rio and co’
They are biased towards, ‘John, Ashley and co’
They are biased against ‘ Wenger, Fabregas’ Clichy, Nasri, Walcott and co’ (notice how they call our players by their surnames)
Now they are just getting into the groove over ‘King Kenny’
Remember the - “Get up, you stupid little boy, You’ve been s***e, son, in your daft pink boots – absolute rubbish.” gaffe he made during the Barcelona game last season whilst referring to our Theo?
Well on Saturday both Keys and Gray stooped the lowest they could go and now it’s time for Sky Television’s bosses to take action.
Both have now gaffed again, stupidly and allegedly making comments about Sian Massey, who ‘ran the line’ during the Wolves v Liverpool match on Saturday.
The commentators, who apparently believed their microphones were switched off, were recorded making disparaging remarks about Sian Massey prior to the game. Not only were they critical of Sian Massey, they also decided to voice their opinion about Karren Brady who had yesterday written about sexism in a newspaper column.
These are the alleged comments made, extracted from The Mail on Sunday:-
Keys said: ‘Somebody better get down there and explain offside to her.’
Gray, a former Scottish international footballer, replied: ‘Can you believe that? A female linesman. Women don’t know the offside rule.’
Mr Keys replied: ‘Course they don’t. I can guarantee you there will be a big one today. Kenny (Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish) will go potty. This isn’t the first time, is it? Didn’t we have one before?’
Later in the conversation, Mr Keys said: ‘The game’s gone mad. Did you hear charming Karren Brady this morning complaining about sexism? Do me a favour, love.’
Ms Brady was asked about the comments made and she said: ‘I think this just sums up everything I said in my column.’
When The Mail on Sunday put the transcript to Mr Keys, he said: ‘I have no recollection of that. I have no idea what you are talking about.
‘My recollection is that I wished the young lady all the best.’
When told a recording existed of the conversation, he said: ‘If you have a tape then you don’t need me to talk to you.’
Who do they think they are to single out a lady for not knowing the offside rule? Jeez, many of the male officials make enough errors week in week out don’t they and those two who sit on their backsides are often wrong too.
Should they be allowed to carry on after this latest incident or is it time for Sky Sports to make some changes?
How long are these two so-called pundits going to be allowed to get away with all the ridiculing of other people and get paid a vast amount of money for doing it?
If this happened in a High Street Bank or similar, Sian Massey would be looking at receiving a rather large payout and Karren Brady wouldn’t be far behind her ……
Just what do you make of it all?
Titbits – Watched a Mark Chamberlain interview this morning, he makes it quite clear that he prefers his son to continue his football in the right way, or course that means by moving to Arsenal and learning how to play the game ‘the proper way’ under a great manager. I saw a few clips of the player too, he’s pretty strong for a seventeen year old and didn’t seem to get pushed off the ball much.
Mark Chamberlain says his son Alex is better that Theo was at his age, of course he could be biased but from what I saw, he could be right. Arsene Wenger is ‘quoted’ in The Sun today to have said:
We are trying as hard as we can. We need an agreement with Southampton and the player. We’re not the only ones after him.
Arsene was also asked about Lille player Eden Hazard, to which he replied:
I’ll leave them to their objectives. The day he’s for sale, we’ll see.
The Guardian report that we are monitoring the form of Hearts goal keeper Allan McGregor and one of our scouts was watching him at the weekend. I honestly can’t see much truth in that one not unless Wenger has lost faith in one of our current two. Even if he has, we don’t need a keeper who is only 6′ tall between the sticks.
Chris Samba is close to agreeing a new deal at his current club, so looks like we can strike him off of our ‘wish list’ – I guess this time next week Arsene will start looking for our new centre half ;)
Thats it from me for today, tomorrow is a big day….
