A big thanks to all of you who nominated Gary Lineker for the Pundit of the Year award via the Football Supporters Federation.
Gary is now on the list of nominees for the FSF Annual Awards and we are encouraging readers to get behind the Match of the Day presenter not only because he’s a decent link man on football’s most popular programme but also because of who appears to have him in their cross-hairs.
Gary has made some mild comments regarding his views on several political matters of the day and because they don’t sit comfortably with the frothing mouthed bullies of the ultra-right-wing press, namely The Sun and The Mail it seems they are out to get him.
As far as I can see Lineker has always cut a dignified figure in the game and has been a good role. England fans will remember him fondly for his service in a Three Lions shirt and he’s an intelligent presenter and part of the furniture on BBC’s flag-ship football programme.
Gary is up against: Jamie Carragher, Danny Higginbotham, Jermaine Jenas, Danny Murphy and, Gary Neville – none of whom we have any in particular beef with but if The Mail and The Sun are against you, doubtless attempting to dig dirt and intimidate a man into silence or worse out of his job, then our support is with the Leicester lad.
If you agree with us, please click here and vote Lineker.
That is all.
