Peter Worthington has had an amazing life. And his obituary, which he wrote himself, certainly has an arresting opening line.
On a seismic night of football which saw Bayern Munich hammer the golden boys of European football, Barcelona, 4-0, the talk of the Twitterati should’ve been on the German’s demolition job, but instead they were focussed on ITV co-commentator Andy Townsend.
“If only we were able to mute Andy Townsend”, said one tweeter. Another was a little more drastic in his opinion: “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...Andy Townsend is commentating #MUTE”. The consensus was clear: Townsend was not up to the job.
