Can anyone remember who the MOTD commentator was for the Leicester game? That `Oh yes, Essandoh!' moment remains one of my favourite commentary moments.
I think it was the late Tony Gubba
Sanchez on Essandoh "I don't know hardly anything about him." Tut tut!
Roy Essandoh claimed to have paid for the Frank Adams stand with that goal
Tony Gubba RIP was on MOTD. Martin Tyler did Sky: "it is... it's e sand dough... this is an incredible story... even by the standards of the fa cup..."
Tut tut indeed, @micra. Should have been "I don't know hardly NOTHING about him".
Nail on head @HCblue.
I am pretty sure the advertisement for a striker was on ceefax and not teletext ?? otherwise I may need to consider changing my user name !!
Ceefax was the BBC's teletext service wasn't it? So the advert was both on teletext and on ceefax.
Did the BBC have adverts on Ceefax?
I think you may be correct Chris - although for some reason I always thought Ceefax was BBC and Teletext was ITV / C4 ?
That's true, ITV used to be called Oracle
What was the one you could play 'Bamboozled' on?
Bamboozled was on 4
Ah that's it. Cheers.
If I'm being pedantic - and I often am - the advert for Essandoh was solely on the club website. It was then Ceefax that picked the story up and included it in their 'news round-up' section. That's where Roy's agent saw it and got him the 'trial'. There wasn't actually the capability to place an advert on Ceefax - this is the Beeb after all! :-)
Yes and general sloppiness in the media's knowledge of that internet-precursor and upstart teletext
