Elevenses - Collymore beats up Match of the Day; Jack Wilshere plays TCFS

Published: 21 Sep 2010 - 10:10:39

There are lots of things we could level at Stan Collymore, but being boring definitely isn't one of them (wasting his talent, dogging, launching a failed rap career and attacking Ulrika Johnson might make the cut however).

Collymore is back in the news today after treating the Match of the Day crew to a monumental public battering.

"I love Match of the Day," Collymore began - as if stroking a kitten before tying it in a sack and throwing it down a well.

"I've watched it for 33 years but, right now in my opinion as a football fan, it's crap, and like dinosaur football, has to change.

"The standard of MOTD is so poor - and sorry, it is - that you may as well Sky-plus it, skip the analysis and use your own judgement."

Much as Elevenses would like to put Collywobbles back in his place, the lad's got a point. Match of the Day is fairly predictable fare these days and the punditry about as intelligent as a double bill of Jersey Shore.

Not like the old days, when BBC football coverage offered up gems like this.

From past-it former pros, let's turn our attentions to the future of Arsenal and England's midfield - Jack Wilshere.

Elevenses was fortunate enough to be in young Jack's presence yesterday, but it seemed we weren't quite important enough to warrant an interview...or a response of any kind for that matter.

Is it too early to suggest the fame's gone to his head...

Still, at least he's not Marlon King. Read about his move to Coventry city HERE

Elevenses is a high-energy performer who bites at the ankles of football and is not afraid to put a boot in. If it’s in the game, it’s fair game. Unsurprisingly Elevenses is served at 11am every weekday morning. So come and join us for a cup full of opinion and hilarity, and don’t be shy if you’ve got a story you think we should cover.
