    Worse than his cheesy dated lines he repeats for cheap laughs. Prefer when Julian Warren presents.

    Apparently Jeff resigned as President of HUFC over his feelings.

    I like seeing passion like this being shown. No violence or aggro just honest passion.

    I like owd Jeff, and I've a lot of respect for anyone that sticks with their local club, especially the smaller ones. More should do it.

    May I just add to the support for Jeff Stelling.

    Saturday afternoons are often pure entertainment simply by having him in charge of documenting a chain of goalscorers.

    And he demonstrates a love for a club that fares far worse than us, invariably with humour plus the agony that we all know so well.

    I prefer passion over professionalism. Come on Hartlepool!

    That's the sad thing. For all his passion it was unprofessional and he's a guy who's probably barely seen a live game of his so called club for the past two decades. His words no doubt played a part in getting someone sacked after just four months.

    Agree.
    Was watching it at the time and got to say I was a bit gob smacked - but then I thought - this guy is a proper proper Hartlepool fan.
    Good on him.
    Much rather have that than a plastic Man U or Liverpool fan

    Why is he "unprofessional"? He's not reading the news. He's no different to someone on MOTD saying a manager has to go.

    Do you really think he sits there in divine impartiality on a Saturday afternoon? Unable to have an opinion just cos he's running the show.

    It's entertainment. Football. Presumably Simon Cowell should be sacked for picking a singer to eject.

    The bloke he wanted to get rid of has shown no aptitude for the job. None. Did you show any interest in what any of our sacked managers did once we'd got rid of them? I suspect not. Perhaps we should get Spackman back in. And have all the others we sacked still on the staff.

    He's entitled to his opinion. Which was expressed in order to at least make an attempt to stop his team dropping out of the league. Plus he had at least a modicum of authority. Plus he showed a passion we can recognise.

    Plus he regularly does more for the profile of Hartlepool than any other.

    What a twat.

    Watch you don't fall off that high horse you're on with the kind words to me. He's not a pundit he's there to present not bash the manager that's been there just four months. Mud sticks despite being found not guilty and so Dave Jones didn't get a job for three years. He dropped to the 4th division to try and help out a club owned by a trigger happy chairman that's gone through far too many managers in recent years, rather than looking closer to home as to why the club is struggling.

    Usually on here when a manager is sacked so soon the club get bashed for not giving the person long enough to turn them around. But when it's good old Jeff getting involved it's fine.

    I didn't mean you were a twat - I could have been a bit clearer on that. I was failing to be ironic.

    Anyway he's not there just to present. He's there to do a job that requires personality and leaves room for personality. It's a show.

    Dave Jones either can do the job or he can't. If he can't then the club needs to get rid. Nowt to do with your "mud" reference - as you are finding with Ched Evans - if you're good enough you'll find forgiveness.

    Everyone will have their opinion on their club, and Jeff Stelling has his. He expressed it. He might not even be right. But to blame him for ruining Dave Jones' right to ruin his club?

    Yep, we should all stand up for each and every manager. We're good at that at Oakwell.

    Good on yer Jeff.

    Two of the big talking points on here are when people moan but don't watch the team (Nudger gets it in the neck at times, amongst others) and when a manager is sacked and loads of people mention them not getting enough time.

    But this time because it's Cheesy Jeff people forget that he will have barely seen a game live in two decades and that Dave Jones only got four months. They go through managers too quickly and one of our greats Higgy was one of them. Marcus Bignot apparently wants the job, but working for that trigger happy chairman whoever gets it won't see out next season.

    I have no idea how many games Jeff Stelling goes to.

    I do know that perhaps his job gets in the way of how many games he does go to.

    So it's hardly a matter of choice on his part.

    Dave Jones didn't get four months. He was eventually shown to be innocent.

    I like Stello and he makes it enjoyable because hes a footy fan like we all are. Yes the dancing and singing James Brown doll thing got silly but surely the one thing we shouldnt call him is 'plastic' or 'fake'.
