Brilliant news! The sublime skills of the voice of Sky Sports Soccer Saturday, Jeff Stelling, have been recognised. He’s picked up the gong for top sports broadcaster at the Sports Journalism Association Awards.
I love Jeff Stelling. I’m in awe at his ability to assimilate live information and immediately work out its consequences to any number of other football clubs across the land. It also gives me an excuse to trot out a couple of Soccer Saturday clips. Here’s Jeff responding in typically impassioned style to a news story about Middlesborough being voted the UK’s worst place to live…and here he is starring in the funniest bits of Soccer Saturday 2007.
