thought it was well out of order he let that bitter twisted blunt
say what Jonny Nobbyknockbong has been through this week,

then he had a right old go at an owls fan who had a go at a women linesman.

Worst commentator/presenter on RS by a country mile.

Regularly gets the scores the wrong way round.

Constantly gets players muddled up.

Poor knowledge on most subjects.

Can't deal with criticism.

Often rude.

Apart from that he's great.

Genuine owl, and gets a raw deal on here.

Never forget his celebration pitch side in 91.

Don't get me started on officials at this level, especially that we now have female ones, thought the caller who slagged off the officials was spot on.

Worst presenter that probably has ever presented Football Heaven/Praise or Grumble IMO

Every week he asks the same questions but just recycled.

He reads the telephone/text number out more times than he takes calls.

RUBBISH

He's not a ref mate.

I hate him, he's one of the reasons I stopped listening to that show.

He's so boring. Football heaven used to be exciting.

Now it's just a program with narrow opinions based on a load of bull.

The Gidmeister is particularly poor on phoneins, we all know that. Pretty awful in fact, he rarely has an opinion and spends way too long spouting the phone no's and general rubbish.

Though id argue he's actually better than Rob at commentating on the match. Rob's far better at discussions on footy heaven, POG etc, but he spends too much time waffling during commentary for me. Needs to describe whats actually going on a lot more, gets pretty frustrating to listen to at times.

Does he have job immunity or something? I mean, how was he hired in the first place let alone able to keep his job?

Any random football fan in a pub would make less errors.

Don't know how he got the job on the radio in the first place to be honest.
staton, walker and Bennet are decent broadcasters and have a bit of presence and charisma but poor old Andy is shockingly dull.
Plus he gets far too excited when the opposition score againt us

He claims that he has no loyalty to any team in our region because he supports Halifax but I can't help feeling that he doesn't like The Owls.

The best error (?) I heard was on the way home after the Preston game when he was commentating on the blunts - "I covered Rotherham a lot when I first started working for Sheffield united"

Dependant on what he said he could be in trouble. All radio stations I've heard when somebody comes on and says I'd like to talk about (insert name) If they' are in a current court case the presenter has stopped them even if the person says they won't talk about the case. Presenter giving the reason that the station could get into serious trouble.
