Punditry Gaffe

Video: Alan Pardew accuses Michael Essien of rape

Ex-Charlton manager unlikely to be asked back on MOTD2

Operating under the proviso “if Alan Shearer can do it, anyone can do it,” a jobless man named Alan Pardew was invited to display his punditry skills on Match of the Day 2 last night. If you watched it, and you thought you heard Pardew say Michael Essien “absolutely raped” Ched Evans, your ears did not deceive you.

Afterwards, no attempt was of an apology was made, so presumably such comments are deemed acceptable at the new transparent BBC.

    Big-nosed, oily, cunniving and lucky manager that is Alan Pardew … He doesn’t even think before he opens his mouth!

    It was a blessing in disguise when we got rid of him.

    I complained to the BBC too. Not about this, I just like complaining to the BBC. have they sacked Woss yet? Still, the number of ‘Alan’s on the MOTD panel of pundits was getting confusing, so this will be one less to worry about.

    You complained to the BBC? What a sad life you must lead. I myself found this hilarious.

    i was laughing my arse off at this. i couldn’t believe my ears. had rewind skyHD. i use that term all the time. normally for when my spurs win.

    for example, “we raped villa on their own patch”.

    it works there too, see?

    Alan Pardew has gone up in my estimation after saying that lol

  • Steven P // May 17, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    When they say, for example, “Ronaldo , mugged there by Fabregas”, implying a clean tackle getting the ball, why is that not condemed? Is rape worse than mugging? Maddness. Pathetic whoever complaimed about this. I hope Pardew gets you fired from your jobs.

    Yes Stephen P, rape is worse than mugging. Still a quality moment though.
