Old Man Andrews Dellor is such a pussy. Full of it on air but when faced with Clement he cannot ask the tough questions. Such a two faced weasel.


I don’t agree.

He doesn’t have unlimited time but asks some of the difficult questions but in a respectful toned-down way. That is surely the correct manner to adopt.

If he says “Let me ask you this Paul, everyone in the stadium can see that Aluko is absolutely useless. What possible reason is there to keep playing him? Are you being forced to do so by upstairs because he is the most expensive player the club has ever signed?” then the important relationship between club and BBCRB (which makes up a big percentage of the station’s weekly output) would go into unhealthy territory (for both parties).

And he is not conducting political interviews - so when he doesn’t get a direct answer to his questions (which actually happens far far less with Clement than was the case with Stam and certainly Gourlay) it’s probably best to just accept it and move on.

In most other areas of the country the local radio football presenters are close to their clubs and are usually up-to-date on injuries etc. ahead of a game.
Whether it is the fault of the club or the fault of BBCRB presenters I don't know but yesterday they were behaving like us uninformed fans in speculating why our 3rd choice keeper was starting and surmised that the other two had been dropped when in fact it turns out that they were both injured.

You would think at times that they have no connection with the club and so often their comments are as if they are just fans rather than professional sports media folk.

It’s the club not offering the information (why would they?) and the media not asking about the fitness of the keepers (why would they either if there’s no reason to think they’re injured). Believe the club tweeted just after kick off the keepers injury situation so no-one knew anything for sure until then. Presuming players dropped for form also wouldn’t be too unreasonable given the state of the club in the pitch and after all what are the chances of two keepers being injured in a week with no game.

The other thing worth considering here is what if Walker has been dropped after his poor game against WBA? A late breaking injury story covers up that fact and gets Walker out of looking like a mug.

I do think they could ask about injuries more...I mean it took us and them 3 weeks to find out how bad oliveria s is! And I still don't understand what's happened to bod...sometimes it stillness he's close to a return others it seems he's on the sofa..but I agree with the above post it isn't a political interview it's a conversation best to keep good relationships..

Dellor's commentary on Rino's goal last night is getting some attention from Zoe Ball and her sports reporter on Radio 2 this morning. Basically, Dellor did exactly what I did, which my wife wasn't slow to point out.

Sports presenter? That'll be Reading fan (and occasional BBC Berks commentator) Mike Williams

It was brilliant. I’m not a Dellor fan but I loved his commentary for that goal.
