Irritating celebrity fans

Recommended Posts

I had 5 Live on earlier before the match started and that Colin Murray was the presenter. He makes out he is Liverpool's number one fan, but seems to have been one match in his life (Istanbul) and was quick to tell everyone he had a tattoo done in honour of number 5. Anyway, he starts going on about Everton being turned down for the stadium this week and then goes on to pronounce Kirkby as kirk-bee and tells the listeners that this is in the Wirral. What a fuckin' gimp!

Five Live really has gone down the pan. Colin Murray is a no nothing halfwit, and most of the pundits they have on there these days are just as bad. They were advertising 6-0-6 before featuring Steve Claridge; now he is enough to put anyone off listening.

it beats listening to talkshite, who for some reason have given Darren Gough a platform to air his views on football, yes football. "Inter Milan are a bigger club than Liverpool" was one of many he came out with this week

I heard that too, he actually said that both the Milan clubs where bigger than Liverpool, the fucking tool.

He was at one of our games in Cardiff (can't remember if it was the United or Chelsea League Cup final) and had a bevvy with us. Pretty sound fella.

 

P.S. Kirkby and Kirby are two different places

Up until I was about 10 I thought 'Kirkby' and 'Kirby' were two different places.

 

Colin Murray isn't 10 and therefore has no excuses.

 

you had a pretty good 10 years then!

Seen him around Anfield a couple of times, not just the 'big' games (one was newcastle in the FA cup).

 

Fighting Talk is the best thing on the radio and his sports presenting style seems superior to many of his cohorts.

 

Some fella proclaiming himself as DJ Spooney (one imagines not his given name) used to do a fair bit of presenting on 5live and was keen to portray himself as a big red initially, although he toned this down quite markedly presumably at the request of his bosses. Hasn't appeared on anything I've listened to lately.

Colin Murray is great. Listen to fighting talk and you may change your mind. He is a massive Liverpool supporter.

 

He's a massive bellwhiff.

Typical glory hunter then, turns up for finals and gets a ticket because of who he is, makes me despise him even more.

 

As for the ps, I was fully aware of that, but if you're a professed fan of Liverpool, shouldn't you be aware of the massive difference between Kirkby and West Kirby?

You would hope so. But in the days of half and half Liverpool - United scarves and £3000 Thomas Cook match day trips hope is a dangerous thing

He's still on the 606. He's mates with a load of the players. Well... used to be anyway I'm not sure how friendly he is with the foreign contingent. But Heskey's DJ celebration was for him. He's OK. Nothing controversial or stupid and he does stick proudly by the fact that he's always been a Liverpool fan despite growing up in London. I don't consider him half bad compared to some of the mongs out there.

Any half and half scarves yesterday?

 

I personally didn't go yesterday, Ted.

 

The last sighting of a half and half by myself was at Lyon. I'm sure Fiorentina will break new grounds in that regard though

Colin Murray used to drink regularly with a few of his mates in the Sandon after European matches, think this was before he started his evening show / channel 5 gig, so not sure how regurlarly he attends now, but certainly never came across as a 'celebrity' fan - just another red having a bevvy.

I've bumped into Murray at a few matches and had a laugh with him in concert square at the second Chelsea CL semi. He loves the reds and seems no worse then any other fan.

 

DJ Spooney, while having a stupid fucking name, clearly loves the club also. And I sat in front of Harvey at the Barca CL game a few years back and he was getting stuck into the singing.

 

I think this thread is more a case of once they are 'celebrities' they must therefore be twats. I can safely say I know plenty of normal people who go the game who are much bigger twats then any of the above mentioned.

This is the correct answer.
