Forget the football that follows – there’s much to recommend in the first three minutes of this clip…
Enjoy the euphoric Midweek Sports Special theme tune. Enjoy Nick Owen as a young Alan Partridge trying to rein in the maverick Clough, who may or may not have taken a couple of drinks before settling down into the pundit’s chair. Enjoy Clough calling Gary Pallister ‘McAllister’. Most of all, enjoy the casual “young man” with which Clough responds to Owen’s introduction.
I could listen to Clough all day and not get bored.
