Earlier this week, we lost Dickie Davies and now on a sad day for sport, MARK POUGATCH reacts to the sad news that BBC commentating legend John Motson has passed away. Mark recounts the style and the legacy of the man and how his kind will never come again. “Motty” was also a big cricket fan and we talk about this and how sports commentators are often pigeon-holed into only following the sports for which they are known.
We go on to talk about Mark’s work for ITV at the Qatar World Cup, the FA Cup and also the Six Nations rugby, which he is presenting for ITV. We also talk about cricket, “Baz Ball” and our growing excitement ahead of The Ashes this summer. Will we get Roy Keane along to Lord’s???
