Anyone but Murray…

Yes, you guessed it, I am an Englishman living in Scotland.
To be honest I do hope he does well and my original post was meant to be tongue in cheek 😀
I am just getting bored hearing about him all the time when everyone knows he isn’t going to win it 😉Posted 6 years agoGarry_LagerSubscriber
Don’t mind him to be honest. He doesn’t have the common touch with the media, true – but he’s also not the usual anodyne UK sports celebrity who gives fawning, simpering interviews. He tries to be himself and doesn’t seem to give a fk about pandering to the heat magazine readership.Posted 6 years agomolgripsSubscriber
I am becoming so bored of hearing about Andy Murray
Well I’m becoming bored of people whining about him.
British sportsman with bags of talent and commitment, and a shot at the big(ger) time. Brilliant 🙂
I don’t see anything wrong with his attitude. Ok so he’s a bit bland at post-match interviews but he clearly hates doing it, and I probably would to. Just finished 2-3 hours of psychologically demanding sport and some simpering pillock shoves a mic in your face and asks you idiotic questions.Posted 6 years ago
yeah, because modern day sport of any type is not media driven is it…..
Look at Federer’s interview after he lost yesterday, calm, collected and full of sportsmanship for the chap who just battered him for three sets. It’s not jumping on the bandwaggon, its just my opinion.Posted 6 years agoMrSmithMember
And you wonder why the Scots have something against you?
because they are jingoistic and full of their own self importance?Posted 6 years ago
only i think you find most of the rest of the U.K. don’t really really care about jocks thumping their chests, it’s this indifference that seems to annoy them though 🙂D0NKSubscriber
trying to decide if 100thidiot is serious.
Yes media saturation of a sporting event can be tiresome but wimbledon hasn’t topped football levels yet so I’m not too bothered.
Wonders what the footy fans would say if TdF completely saturated the media a la world cup frenzy….Posted 6 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
I’m sure all the STW Murray-haters have wonderful media friendly personalities, are clean shaven, handsome and always say what you don’t actually believe to make people you don’t know like you more
I’m further sure that everyone on STW is ranked considerably higher than number 4 in the world at their chosen sport.
It’s always the same isn’t it – massive media coverage of “oh yes he can do it, come on and get behind the British underdog” followed rapidly by “oh no, he’s failed, he’s shit, why did anyone let him near sport in the first place, let’s kick him a bit more”
I’m just waiting for that to happen with Bradley Wiggins in the TdF…Posted 6 years ago
