The sight of that green baize on our TV screens the past few days has put this, erm, belter back in our minds.
The Matchroom Mob and Chas and Dave – it was a partnership made in pop music heaven/hell (delete as appropriate).
But these tuneless cue men aren’t the only sports stars to have left themselves open to ridicule.
Remember Gazza’s link-up with Lindisfarne for?
You should, because it included the classic lyrics ‘Sittin' in a sleazy snack-bar/ Suckin', sickly sausage rolls/ Slippin' down slowly, slippin' down sideways/ Think I'll sign off the dole’.
Or how about Andy Cole’s cover of? “United forever/ Whatever the weather/ Less than 100%? Never’
They haven’t all been disasters though.had the genius line about John Barnes: ‘How is he doing the Jamaica rap? He’s from just south of the Watford gap’
And we can’t forget Barnes was also a key ingredient in New Order’s.
