Jeff Stelling


Recommended Posts

This guy is surely the best guy Sky have on their books, makes Soccer Saturday absolutely top entertainment and most importantly enjoyable. Losing his voice today but managed to keep going without letting it effect him. Also, I don't condone bias in the media unless it's towards Chelsea nono.gif but whenever James Brown scores for Hartlepool I can't help but join in with the little dance he does icon_lol.gif

He also made a quip today about the last time Spuds won at the Bridge, it was the last Liverpool had won the league, THAT’S HOW LONG AGO IT WAS!!! Fantastic stuff!

Just looked up his profile on Wikipedia and found these gems too:

Stelling often delivers one-liners if a player with a certain name appears on the vidiprinter. Examples include the following:

- When Gareth Jelleyman was sent off for Mansfield Town in the 2005-2006 season Stelling replied "it looks as if Jellyman has thrown a wobbly".

- Whenever Adam Stansfield scores, he says 'Lisa will be pleased'.

- Similarly, he says 'Sally will be pleased' whenever former Montrose player Kevin Webster scores.

- Also whenever Kevin Nolan scores for Bolton Wanderers, Jeff usually says, "his sisters will be pleased". icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

- When Guylain Ndumbu-Nsungu scored for Sheffield Wednesday, Jeff quipped "Local boy makes good"

- "There's only one Enoch Showunmi. Thank God for that"!

- Whenever Barney Gillespie scores for Accrington Stanley, Jeff jokes "They only paid him £20!"

- Once when Michael Kightly scored for Wolverhampton Wanderers Jeff said "Kightley onto a flyer"

- Once when Craig Alcock almost scored for Yeovil Town, Jeff laughed "Craig can't seem to put it away!"

- Whenever a player called Stephenson scores, Jeff says " I bet that was a rocket".

- When Daniel Agger scored a spectacular goal against West Ham United at Anfield during the 2006–07 season, Jeff remarked "Just how did Agger-do that?"

- When James Brown scored for Hartlepool, Jeff sang "I feel good".

- When a passage of play in a Wigan Athletic match involved the player Fitz Hall Jeff comically referred to him as "good old one-size". This was in reference to the commonly used phrase one size fits-all.

- When Bristol Rovers striker Andy Williams scores, Jeff points out it was a free transfer, and that the transfer was "too good to be true" in a reference to a line from singer Andy Williams' song Can't Take My Eyes Off You. This despite the fact that Williams was actually signed from Hereford United for a six figure fee.

- One of Stelling's famous catchphrases on his Sky Sports show occurred whenever the Welsh team "Total Network Solutions" (now The New Saints FC) won a game, upon which he invariably commented, "They'll be dancing in the streets of Total Network Solutions tonight". Stelling has now updated the catchphrase to "dancing in the streets of The New Saints" as the team has changed its name.

Some of them priceless icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif even if just for being terrible!

I don't like him that much actually...he actually makes a lot of comments that are anti-chelsea most of the time and I find the sky team on a saturday rather smug, not surprising as their usually blowing sunshine up arsenal, man u and Liverpool's (if they're winning) arses...maybe he's bitter at how much he had to pay for his kid's shirts!

Some mates and I used to watch that show, and everytime the name Jeff was said, you had to drink. The guys that came up with that other list/ game, put way to much thought into the process. however, it is pure genius!
