The End Of Motty


The Camden Cad
Aug 24, 2004
North London
Apparently, Sunday night is going to be his last big game before he hangs up his sheepskin. Am I alone in being delighted?

Right up until 2002, he was absolutely superb. Knowledgable, consistent and informative. Then, and I believe it was the early kickoff against Nigeria, he went absolutely mental. He started referencing all the components of a full english breakfast throughout the match, as if he was ticking them off a list.

"And I know your sausages might be sizzling right now, but this game certainly isn't."

Disturbing, though not as disturbing as meeting him in person, which never fails to send shivers down my spine. He is not entirely normal, that bloke.

Ever since that morning in Osaka, he's been contrived and cheesy, forcing out Motty-isms as if he suddenly became aware of his cultish status. His knowledge has gone down the pan, he doesnt seem entirely sure who anyone is and he attempts 'banter' with that odious **** 'Lawro' that is so hideous that it makes me want to hack off my ears with a blunt knife.

He should have gone a long, long time ago before he tarnished his own legacy. I just wish he could take 'Lawro' with him.
