Yea him and his "text machine", and Rita... I know exactly what you mean about him and his antsy position - he does seem to ask questions which are totally pointless just to create some discussion and give an opinion.

Had to laugh before the Forest game when he ridiculed the midfield that got picked and thrashed by them last season. I thought oh yeah! ere we go, this lot's even worse on current form. The Mumbler Clarke may have some great names on paper but like Williams seems to be blinkered by their so called quality. This lot are sh.te, and like the manager have to go. Also please take Williams with you so we don't have to keep hearing his autobiography.

Last night he mentioned that we had brought back ball boys. One of us might be going mad, because as far as I am aware we have always had ball boys. The only difference was several years ago when we had to drop the multi-ball option.

Really like AW but he does talk utter gash constantly during the build up to a game.

Today:

AW: if Birmingham lose all their remaining games they will end up 14th. Now surely that would be a bad finish for them.

TD: well if they win all their remaining games they could finish around 6th or 7th.

AW: yea but you know what I'm getting at don't you?

Been saying this all season. Got an arsey tweet from him about it but he seems to delight in us losing and when we win he still has to find a negative.

been anti McDermott for ages, but doesn't have the balls to come out and say it, just postulates increasingly thinly veiled and pointed questions to the other two about it.

He's had such a chip on his shoulder about not currently being a player. He's probably seething that dross in League 2 earn more in a year than he did in his whole career.

Hes done. Kaput. Toast.

Hell get another media job somewhere, but it wont be as nightly news anchor.

Lester Holt is doing a fine job in Williams former role and deserves to remain in that role.

Williams is such a tosser on BBCRB. I remember being in a meeting at Norfolk rd, EP with Annie Bassett and hearing him f'ing and jeffin in another office at some poor girl because she didn't sort his comp tickets out. He's still a self centred twat nearly 30 years later

"30 years later" deary-me

Sounds alright to me

His speech impediment and his knowledge of all things local adds to the allure.

Puts in some long shifts

Enjoy a lot of his anecdotes too

Bit late to this but listening to Ady on the radio is like listening to the annoying kid at school pester people about football.

It was mainly him (ignoring BBCRB callers) that made me turn off about 18 months ago permanently.

He says things just for a debate. It could be anything.

"Tim, bear with me but what would you say if I said Reading could still win the league and go on to win the PL next year"

I said before that I remember he once said something like:

"Interesting stat for you Tim. If Reading win their next 6 games they could be up to 2nd. If they lose the next 6 they could be down to 23rd"

Mmmmm that was about 10 games in a few seasons ago and I turned off as Tim and Mick were trying to answer

Maybe he is auditioning for a TalkSport role as that is all they seem to do, try and have apposing points of view to start a 'discussion'. Unfortunately it is quite tiresome and is not needed on a local radio station.

It is a shame as having met him personally on a few occasions, he has always come across as fairly knowledgeable and quite a nice guy.

Never met him but he does seem a very nice and genuine guy.

I've seen him message (normal non football) people on twitter regarding events, occasions and even funerals offering good wishes.

He is as thick as shit. His fawning of Jilly Cooper was embarrassing. He does not even know the names of the different stands at the Madejski.
