Darren Gough gets a lot of stick on here and rightly so for some of the stupid things he says. Yet he is fantastic when talking cricket.
He was the the debate show yesterday after the close of play. He was insightful, knowledgeable and very entertaining. He was absolutely worlds away from the character that rolls up for talk sport.

Your last sentence sums it up.... When with Durham he is in character..... All worked out nicely, who will be good cop / bad cop that day for which particular subject.
It used to wind me up until I realised it is pantomime radio (oh yes it is) and now listen in purely for the entertainment value.
Although Jason Bent saying "Sa-ink" for something and "ga-in" for going does raise the blood temperature along with the increase in female presenters - not because they are female - because most of the time they are pushed to the back and contribute just with chuckles and just agreeing with the main presenters.
Seems like a box ticking exercise

The amount of times he declares "your response to this topic is sending our systems into meltdown...." to give the impression thousands are getting involved.... And then he reads out two tweets.....

And he says "we'll be right across this". Wtf is that supposed to mean? He seems to think he's in the loop when probably the players and managers think like us, a complete dick

It's as almost he knows his cricket but is a clueless tosser about everything else.

Saying that, he may have improved since I last listened several years ago.
