Hod’s comic timing woefully out

Sky Sports’ scandal-ridden start to 2011 continued with a fresh saga last night. Glenn Hoddle, co-commentator for the Fulham v Chelsea game, took to his Monday Night Football slot like a bigoted duck to water.

After some poor control for Chelsea’s record signing Fernando Torres, Hoddle said he was “like the Chinese player Knee Shin Toe”.

OTP is just surprised, and Sky Sports relieved, that Hoddle didn’t suggest Torres had the control of a disabled person.

Hopefully, talkSPORT will now get Andy Gray to provide expert analysis on Hoddle’s faux pas!
