I got his autograph when I was a kid - I don't remember him being anything other than polite about it.

I always thought he was fairly even handed about Palace, in that he gave us our fair dues even when we were playing against a so-called bigger club. Sure he referred to us as the underdogs in the 4-3 SF, but that's because we were.

At Wembley 1990 when we won the toss and got to wear our home kit he remarked how nice it was - I don't remember any other commentator doing that, as well as "Just look at all the balloons" re the Palace end.

And then of course there was "Wright!! Oh, what an impact by the substitute!" That line is, for me, right up there with Brian Moore's "That's the part I like!" in the 3-0 Blackburn play-off final.

Not saying he's the best commentator or anything like that, but overall I liked him.
