Well, our England v USA”Commentary Cliches” competition certainly delivered more than a few possibilities for our novelty number crunchers to get their teeth into. The market should be up tomorrow and should prove more popular than ever (which would be an acheivement).
We thought long and hard about whether to go with the more plausible or the just plain silly, but in the end Andrew’s tribute to Harry Hill – “I like fish and chips, I like burger and chips, but which one is better? There’s only one way to find out. Fight!” was declared the winner. If only because we would love it, just LOVE IT if Clive Tyldesley actually said this as the match kicked off. A long shot I suppose.
Congratualtions Andrew – we’ll be in touch to sort out your free bet. And don’t forget, we’ll be back for your commentary suggestions for England v Algeria next weekend.
