Oh Clive...

TV football commentators in the UK usually fall into one of two categories; God awful, xenophobic idiots or God awful, xeneophobic idiots with a lot of statistics. Bucking the trend and best of the bunch though is ITV’s Clive Tyldesley who enhanced his standing further with this gem during tonight’s Champions League quarter-final match between Bayern Munich and Chelsea.

There’s quite an interesting story actually as to why he (Munich full back Bixente Lizarazu) wears number 69 on his back… (pause while audience intakes breath sharply) it was the year he was born… (pause for audience to exhale in relief) not as interestng as you thought, eh?” Classic.

You were born in 1964 - any funny stories about that?
