Exactly. Really does my head in because some listeners take what that fuckface says as gospel.

He's a bellend is Durham. Everything he says is for a reaction to get callers. It's pretty poor. Every show he has a view and Gough has the opposite view guaranteed. Piss poor radio

I've seen and heard him called FSW by many Liverpool fans, in person and on the Internets.

We have many bellends supporting us.

Thirsty Talksport host Alan Brazil’s keen interest in the good life sometimes leads to uncomfortable moments.

Few listeners will forget where they were the morning the great man intoned: “Our talking point this morning is George Best, his liver transplant and the booze culture in football. Don't forget, the best caller wins a crate of John Smith's.”

Or a more recent appearance by recovering alcoholic Kenny Sansom, who let slip he would be signing his autobiography in London's Leadenhall Market later that day and was told: "Get down Brokers wine bar while you're there, Kenny. On second thoughts, don't."

So it was hardly surprising when Paul McGrath, who has waged a long battle against the bottle, was asked last Monday if he’d “had a half of Guinness to celebrate St Patrick's Day.”

The answer, unsurprisingly, was no.

It really is incredible that he has his own Radio show. He borders on utterly embarassing. He was talking about an article that someone had written in the Telegraph on Monday morning. He didn't like the article and on live radio goes onto refer to the writer as an "Absolute Tube".

Listened on the way home yesterday and they were discussing F1.

Darren Gough was acting all high and mighty saying he knew all about it and then proceeded to make an absolute fool of himself. Stated 3 or 4 things as facts which were just not true.

This station has become about getting callers and causing an argument - rather than having good sports journalists who have discussions around a subject using fact and rationale.

Station has gone right downhill compared to a couple of years ago.

Can hardly listen to it much these days.

That is odd! Durham would argue that Hitler was a gifted visionary if he thought it'd get callers and ratings.

They won Radio Station of the year a few years back at the Sony's. Don't see that happening again for a few years.

Scary. I was thinking the exact same thing on my way home from work yesterday. What are the odds that on every topic they discuss, every single day of the week, they would have the opposite view to each other!

And it gets on my nerves that Durham comes out with lines like:

"Alwight Fella"

"I'm no expert on F1 and no fan of it but if Monaco GP is on, I'll watch it". Well no wonder you're no fan of F1 if you only watch the Monaco GP. It's probably one of the most boring GP's you could watch

i went through a spell a for a few years of listening to talksport on way to work, at lunch and way home

can't last more than a couple of minutes now other than hawksbee and jacobs in the afternoon don't seem too bad - almost likeable....

but then when they are sandwiched in between

irani - brazil
gray - keys
hawksbee - jacobs
durham - gough

well they look like fucking hero's in the middle of that lot.

I caught a bit of keys and gray sucking up to that barclay fella, the nobhead journo - talking about the maracana stadium and Barclay mentioned that in the changing rooms they had oxygen masks...barclay trying to carry on with the story and Keys kept butting in

"....oxygen....oxygen....why....why.....but why oxygen masks" - he just sounded like such a patronising prick.

Paul Hawksbee is certainly listenable/likeable. Andy Jacobs is a irritating twat.

Who is the ex Eastenders actor who is a massive Arsenal fan Tom someone??
He was the last good presenter TalkSport had

Brazil is an old boys club fat idiot
Irani is a clueless, clueless Man U loving cunt.
Durham is another absolute bell end, Gough knows jack shit as well.

It really is a home for ex sportsman and washed up journo's showing early signs of Alzheimers.

One of the Hawksby/Jacobs pricks is openly hostile towards Torres as if he's some sort of super Chelsea fan.

As bizarre as it sounds Collymore is the only decent presenter they have.

I thought it was funny a few years ago when Brazil was going on about depression. He had some rat journo on (can't remember his name but i know he had previously got done for gbh) and they were going on about some cricketer that Irani knew that had come out with depression....

Brazil, obviously dying with a hangover, had a view along the lines of: "suck it up and ge tout to work......depression is a load of bollocks"

Irani was pure odd with him - he was obviously disgusted with the whole thing but then all of a sudden it cut to adds and Brazil was replaced when they came back.....

How he didn't get the bullet then i'll never know

From a while ago

http://www.eadt.co.uk/news/ipswich_c..._saga_1_846276

Quote:
IPSWICH: A media regulator has received complaints after a football pundit claimed that people with depression should “just get on with it”.

Yesterday, the Evening Star reported that former Ipswich Town striker Alan Brazil had been criticised by Suffolk Mental Health for being “insensitive”.

On Friday morning’s breakfast show on talkSPORT radio, Brazil said that he doubted whether depression was an illness.

The comments were made during a discussion over Michael Yardy’s decision to withdraw from the cricket World Cup due to depression.

Today, media regulators Ofcom confirmed that they had received 14 complaints relating to comments made by Alan Brazil and sports journalist Rob Shepherd, who claimed that sportsmen were using “the depression word far too cheaply”.

A spokesman for Ofcom said: “We are investigating these complaints.”

During the broadcast, Brazil said: “If I’m being honest, I don’t understand the illness of depression.”

He adds: “I’m old school and I’m not arguing with a 
professor and I’m not arguing with Michael Yardy, but sometimes in life you roll your sleeves up.”

A spokeswoman for talkSPORT said that Brazil’s comments were not reflected by the station as a whole.
Edit - just seen Frank's post

...the most succinct post of the whole thread.

Alvin Martin and Micky Quinn are decent but even the half-arsed news readers are fuckwits too - 'the moose' and Andrew McKenna are absolute muppets. I've heard farts make more sense..

I agree on Mick Quinn - he can be okay and is pretty funny.....

In general though, it's fockin toilet - like 'the s*n' of radio.......

Also, it pisses me off when I hear 'Liverpool fans' on the station,ringing up not having a fuckin clue, with their fuckin cockney accents saying things like "Kenny was great but signing the likes of Joe Cole was never going to work out",

Was it Parry who called Rafa a nonce?

I remember once seeing a clip of Parry eating a tablespoon full of cinnamon for some reason.
