With BBC pundit Danny Murphy’s ill-judged and totally uneducated words recently about new manager Steve Bruce’s delayed start to life as Sheffield Wednesday’s new gaffer, his apology didn’t quite do the trick when he finally found out the full story.

With Murphy and Ruud Gullet talking BS basically and compounding the issue by speaking over Alex Scott who actually had the audacity to do her research, Murphy deserves some credit for fronting up to his error, but in hindsight he may have actually wished he’d tried a proper apology rather than going with the ‘I didn’t know’ defence, given his job as a pundit is to actually know that which he speaks.

There will be those who feel he could’ve attempted to make up for his faux par on a more reliable outfit that Talksport as well.

Suffice to say, the former Liverpool midfielder’s words didn’t quite find the intended spot amongst the Owls faithful.

For me, fair play for fronting up, to be honest, but it should be a harsh lesson on both scores.

1 – Don’t be afraid to say you don’t know the facts.
2 – Form an opinion after learning the facts.
3 – When somebody with knowledge tries to tell you, don’t dismiss ‘her’.

  • Murphy has redefined the role of “Devils advocate” to that of “Devils idiot”. He thinks he has to make controversial comments but now every time I see the bellend on tv I will be seeing him with a massive pair of donkeys ears.
    He should have made a better more heart felt apology, he had the opportunity, he did not take it; Crass attitude of the highest order.
    Steve Bruce will no doubt deal with it in his own inimitable way, that of a real man. Murphy will still think he is right.
