Been a while since my last blog and a fair amount has been happening to be fair – new band, eventful holiday (I shan’t bore you with the detail on that one – suffice to say that Carry On Abroad was actually a documentary) and a new show time for me on talkSPORT.
Just to let you know that I shall be drumming for WHITESNAKE UK (the tribute) at the Steelhouse Festival in Ebbw Vale on Friday 19th August. Onstage approx 6pm
Then, my Football First show on talkSPORT is back in its new Saturday evening timeslot of 9pm-Midnight - 1053/1089AM & DAB Digital...plus it's also being broadcast across the USA on the Sirius network!! Alvin Martin will be my studio guest.
Jeremy Kyle is, oddly enough, someone I can call a good friend. I say oddly because you may not be aware that we worked together twice in my radio life and first time round was when he was nowhere near settling rows between warring factions of families happy to air their dirty laundry to ever-increasing audience figures.
I'll have Times columnist Matthew Syed & Arsenal man Perry Groves alongside me on Saturday from12-5 on talkSPORT along with regular updates on the 3rd Round of the Open Championship...
Whilst on Sunday, Im in the company of football writers Chris Davies & Neil Ashton at the same time, as the Open reaches its conclusion!
A week in which I’ve discovered a new found respect for an individual. It takes a real man to admit when he’s got it wrong, and whilst I may still have it right in one instance, I will be truly delighted to be proved otherwise come May next year…as long as it doesn’t prevent my own Blue machine in succeeding were it to come to pass!!
I'll be back on Sky 656 and Freesat on Tuesday evening presenting on Gems tv Extra, starting at 6pm and finishing at 2am. Hope you can join me :)
Another hectic 5 hours in store on talkSPORT, as Paddy Barclay, respected football writer and the former Arsenal man Stewart Robson chew the fat on the last day of the News Of The World and possibly the last chance for any F1 driver to get within striking distance of Sebastien Vettel at the British F1 GP! :o)
I'm back on talkSPORT's All Sports Show Sat & Sun from 12 noon - 5pm.
On Saturday my studio guests will be Mick Dennis, football writer from the Daily Express and Bob Bubka, talkSPORT's legendary golf correspondant along with Rupert Bell's reports from the Scottish Open - we'll also keep you in touch with F1 British GP qualifying, the final one-dayer between England & Sri Lanka and preview England's women's World Cup clash with France
Imagine young Blues fans quizzing their Dads down the years:
“Dad – is it true that there was a fire once at our shirt sponsors shop and our owners used the insurance money to buy players and stuff?”
“Dad – is it true that our new owners sell scrap metal for a living and that they sold our training ground for 1 pound to a man who flies planes about?”
“Dad – is it true that our new owners sell newspapers with nudie ladies in it and run shops that sell chocolate body paint and stuff?”
