Old Man Andrews Dellor is such a pussy. Full of it on air but when faced with Clement he cannot ask the tough questions. Such a two faced weasel.
I don’t agree.
He doesn’t have unlimited time but asks some of the difficult questions but in a respectful toned-down way. That is surely the correct manner to adopt.
If he says “Let me ask you this Paul, everyone in the stadium can see that Aluko is absolutely useless. What possible reason is there to keep playing him? Are you being forced to do so by upstairs because he is the most expensive player the club has ever signed?” then the important relationship between club and BBCRB (which makes up a big percentage of the station’s weekly output) would go into unhealthy territory (for both parties).
And he is not conducting political interviews - so when he doesn’t get a direct answer to his questions (which actually happens far far less with Clement than was the case with Stam and certainly Gourlay) it’s probably best to just accept it and move on.
