My recent appearance on The Clare Balding Show

Share This Article

Just over a month ago I was invited onto The Clare Balding Show along with 100m World record holder Usain Bolt and 400m London Olympics silver medalist, Christine Ohuruogu. Appearing on TV for other things opposed to football is rare, but on the few occasions I have, they’ve all been enjoyable. And appearing on Clare’s show was no exception. Emerging in front of a live studio audience may seem somewhat nervy, but along with Clare’s welcoming nature, her direct questions soon had be reliving all topics from; my time in Strangeways, growing up on Merseyside and the night that led to my arrest.

There’s a real niche in the market for such shows and the guys over at BT Sport are beginning to emerge as a serious rival to Sky Sports. If you didn’t get a chance to see the show, there’s an edited version below.

As ever on my posts, what are your thoughts? Did anything surprise you about the interview?

So sad to see a player who could've been something special has wasted his talent.He's unbalanced,a pity that IQ and cultural tastes don't change the fact that he's a vicious,criminal

So refreshing to see someone so honest. Completely agree that footballs do dumb themselves down and have no idea why they do. Also the abuse at matches from people that have kids with them is unreal and unacceptable.

Cracking interview makes a change to hear decent questions and honest answers without the host looking for all the lime light. Going to show my wife this so she can show the students at her school. Keep it up hopefully this will change attitudes towards you.
