    It appears that he’s been jocked off half-way through in favour of the comparatively articulate Ollie MacPhail. Or else he really was as bored with proceedings as he sounded, and simply went home.

    Either way, I doubt if we’ll be hearing Christian’s Welsh "lilt" on ATR again.

    Totally agree- he sounds like the bloke who takes off Roy Keane over here- droller than a droll thing in a row of droll things!

    I think this is a relief. I’ve never quite understood why television feels the need to promote as pundits or anchormen, jockeys past or present. They are hardly known for their grasp of the English language or their abilities in stringing a sentence together. Of the utmost importance I would have thought, besides so many being, how shall I say, missing a tooth or two?

    One or two are exceptions.

    just got home from work and was so pleased to see what others have said about Christian Williams..I thought I was hallucinating when I was listening to him.!!
    I always enjoy actually seeing what a jockey actually looks like..a bit like talking to someone who you speak to on the phone regularly and then finally seeing them in person…but he reminded me of those vultures in Jungle book who sing "we re your friends" and till I die I dont imagine I will hear a more boring voice…shame because I think hes a great jockey.!!!

    Is he the worst ever example of a guest pundit??

    I keep having to inject myself with amphetamines to stay awake.

    Makes tyhe priest with the most "boring voice in all of Ireland" in Father Ted sound like Christopher Biggins.

    Shocking!

    lmao, true, so very true.

    It might have been a touch more interesting if Pitters had asked Christian which horses he had backed that day. :wink:

    …….or layed, of course.
