Is it just me or has Graham Poll become an even bigger prick now that he’s given up refereeing? He’s been signed up by the BBC (it could only be them) I imagine to present a different point of view on the subject of football. To be honest I applaud that thinking. Any football chat format which involves just footballers and/or ex-footballers and opinionated presenters drives me to distraction. I long for an alternative voice in there – you know the voice of the (articulate) fan (I guess that’s what made Soccer AM so enjoyable) or the administrator maybe or the unbiased pressman (as on Sunday Supplement). So I can see that the voice of officialdom could be an interesting angle. Good idea but wrong frigging ex-official.
