    I`m sure he called Northampton "Rochdale" at one point unless my old ears deceived me. If so where on earth did that come from?

    I know a few people who don't go to games listen on the radio and do phone up to compliment Clive on his commentary.

    What they don't know though through not being there, is the amount of times the local commentators keep getting the players wrong.

    Against Fleetwood for instance, Eakin called Beavon 'Thomas' at least 4 or 5 times.

    Anyone listening in would think that Thomas was heavily involved when it was in fact Beavon.

    Always been a big problem and I have noticed it on a number of occasions.

    I don't know how anybody can ring up who was just listened to the radio, it's a totally different game that Eakin explains

    When they interview the manager after the game they don't ask the right questions they give him such an easy
    time, they should be asking why gave you played that formation when you don't have the players to play it and why do you keep picking the worst player in league one in Tudgay

    Makes my blood boil that!

    A major incident occurs, or a strange sub or tactical move is made and half the time CWR don't even mention it.

    It's the one thing burning in City fans' minds and they don't even broach the subject.

    Infuriating.

    Could have been worse. He could have said Cov away at Flyde at the Butts Park Arena in the Checkatrade semi-final against Wasps.

    I wish they would replace him ...............oh I could go on

    Just as play started yesterday the "Blackburn" fans were making quite a lot of noise. Can't blame them. I'd be pretty pissed off if I'd turned up at the wrong game esp THAT one.

    He also said that Port Vale were Sheff Utd at one point. Because of Michael Brown I think.
