Succulent Tom English has rediscovered his love for Scottish football, it seems that last season didn’t go as the chief Sports Writer at BBC Scotland had hoped.
Celtic’s title success and a forced apology from the state broadcaster over his crass comments about Shane Warne have restrained his social media activity. BBC bosses in England don’t like having to sort out the mess created by one of their branch offices,
On Tuesday night English had no comment to make on Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side losing 2-0 away to Union SG.
Taking time off from his in-depth coverage of the Empire Games in Birmingham, English managed to catch up with a match in UEFA’s third rate competition.
Terrific win by United. Worked so hard, defended really well, scored a beautiful goal. Tannadice looked amazing on telly

The really interesting thing to take from this email, is the collaboration in fabricating a narrative to get a point across.
It’s all staged.

A year ago English was in his Steven Gerrard fan-boy pomp as he predicted global domination with two teams of players from Ibrox better capable of competing than Celtic, that one didn’t end well for the man known affectionately as House Paddy by his BBC Scotland colleagues.
SIMPLY THE BEST- Classic stuff from the House Paddy of BBC Scotland…….. apparently still fishing for a media job in Ireland despite the sound of slamming doors.https://t.co/S6zgk5Z5iE
