Jeff Stelling Set To Retire

Recommended Posts

I know some people despise him but I find him great entertainment and has been iconic presenting Soccer Saturday at 3pm over the years.

Weird that he's retiring like,  he's not exactly old and it's a pretty cushy job really.  Still,  I find him entertaining and likeable,  so he'll be a miss.

Bad news, he makes that programme.

Feel for the person who comes in to replace him, impossible job.

Why has he retired?

Works one day a week, getting excited about football, when he loves football, getting paid handsomely for it? 

Unbelievable Jeff

I read his biography ages ago and although what you see on TV is about a day's worth, there's a shit load of stuff that he does in the background which involves researching all the facts and figures which he ends up churning out on a Saturday, as well as loads of charity events.

I also met him when I went on Countdown and again in Gatwick airport when I got back from holiday and had a chat about Leicester, Hartlepool and Soccer Saturday. He does a quiz show on ITV as well as Friday Night Football (not that regular, I know). 

Fun fact for you all - his first name isn't actually Jeff :D

You legend.

How did you do?

Lost by 5 points on the conundrum (neither of us got it). 

I now get pelters from my mates of what the answer was (Had to guess 'Godparent' from 'petdragon').

stan is a nickname my brother gave me relating to when we both played Championship Manager together.

We saw 'Sanli Tuncay' flick up on the commentary very quickly. My brother thought it said 'Sunil Tuncay'. Then he started calling me Sanli, then Stanley, then Stan. 

As sad as that :D

Did you get to meet Rachel Riley and Susie Dent?

Yep, both of them. 

We were in a new studio and Rachel Riley hadn't seen the 'Green Room' (where all the contestants for the day stay) yet so I showed her around. 

I remember Susie Dent complimenting me on some of the words I got xD

Fair play, he's made his money, but fucking hell, it's one day a week.

Arguably the least offensive person on television, he'll be missed. Now who? Simon 'let me tell you about Norwich City' Thomas? Glad I don't have the subscription tbh, I'll stick to Jason Mohammed on the Beeb.

It'll probably be that Julian Warren that does it through the week, actually don't mind him but he's not a patch on Jeff.
