Allott isn't one of my favourites, but he strikes me as reasonably
competent. My bete noir is Bob Willis; just listening to his dreary
voice makes me depressed.
As for "Blowers", I think a programme that goes on as long as TMS needs
a mix of commentators of different styles, and I find that he makes a
good contrast to the more "serious" types. His return to TMS has at
least partially filled the void left by the death of Brian Johnston.
I'm living so far beyond my income that we may almost be said
to be living apart.
