Efan club


Also, can we have more Efan Ekoku on the telly, please? He was smart, articulate, realistic, insightful, honest, interesting and pretty funny in a sardonic, anti-banter kind of way.

Basically, find as many endings as you can to the sentence 'Paul Merson is not...' and you've got Efan Ekoku. He used the word 'phlegmatic' last night, for goodness sake. In context. The anchor went straight to commercials, obviously, while Sky's lawyers checked it wasn't a swear.

And yet presumably he was only on because he used to play for Norwich. And, obviously, you have to have played for Arsenal or Liverpool to get a truly high profile media job. And be a MASSIVE idiot.

Come on Sky, sort it out.

  1. Very good. Yes, I thought 'the chief' was a very good pundit. On the other hand I thought Jenas was inarticulate and boring sitting alongside him. He basically repeated everything that was said to him. A real limp biscuit. For sky's propensity for picking thickos who lack even the basic grasp of comprehension or grammar read 'talksport'. I've given up on talksport, apart from hawksbee and Jacobs, many of my friends have too. Irani, Gough and Quinn are hopeless and the thickest of the lot is ray parlour. Why can't the producers of these programs see or hear what we can? My four year-old-niece is better spoken than the above collection of fools and I fear for those who may emulate them. People, I beg of you, if you love your children cover their ears when these morons fill the airwaves.

  2. Yes I agree. Efan was excellent and made Jenas seem like a complete muffin.

  3. I thought Jenas was perfectly fine - better than most pundits doing the rounds this season. But Efan was really good to listen to. He reminded me of Clive Allen way way back when he did a few games with ITV. He seemed to understand what was happening on the pitch better than anyone else and I remember thinking he'll give this game up for coaching soon surely? Sure enough he did just that and Efan may do to.

  4. Can we end the anti-Jenas crap please? Yes he wasnt the player we really wanted him to be but he score a lot of important goals for us. Give some respect please.

    As for Ekoku, could't agree more. A pundit both knowledgable and erudite. Need more of him on tv.

  6. Hear hear. I thought the Chief was very good indeed. A tad too sardonic at times but certainly worth a listen. Not hating on JJ, but he was proper shit. I kept looking at his stupid diamond earing thinking 'that's another reason for me to hate you'.
    Finally, I would like to say I was impressed with Sky's all black pundit line up (a first???). Don Goodman did the previous game, our game had JJ & EE & a decent feature on Ruel Fox. It made a pleasant change from Jeff Sterling's all white gang bore fest.

    "He's scored a lot of important goals"

    He has scored 21 goals in 155 appearances over a 6 year period! That's 3.5 goals a season or 1 every 7.3 games. That's sh!te.

  8. I thought Ekoku was excellent: articulate, calm, measured and objective. Great debut (assuming that was his debut), would welcome more appearances from him.

  9. @stoney - As some have said here: Jenas is actually quite articulate. If you don't like him, then just say that you do not like him - nothing wrong with that. But do not make up things that are not true about him.

    As some have said here; Jenas is actually quite inarticulate. If you want to suck his cock, then just say you want to suck his cock - nothing wrong with that. (erh? Well, maybe). But do not make up things that are not true about him.

  12. Like most pundits Efan don't have a clue what he is talking about and he don't even have a Spurs connection for me to support him either.

    Gary Neville is currently the pick of a bad bunch but that is not saying much.

    If I was going to campaign for one pundit it would be Gary Mabbutt as he is a top bloke and ex Spurs too.
