At some point in the last couple of years it has apparently become OK to swear onstage at business events. What the flip is going on?
Today i worked as a commentator and stadium announcer at the Champions League Festival in Hyde Park. I say worked, it was for the Bobby Moore Fund, a charity dear to my heart. Here’s me with BMF founder Stephanie Moore, Bobby’s widow and a truly splendid woman. I commentated on a match between the Parliamentary […]
I thought presenting at the end of season gala dinner, the day after we were relegated would be a tough gig. Actually it was a great night out and I met lots of lovely people. I’ve been feeling so down since West Ham lost at Wigan, that the last thing I wanted was a night […]
Google can be a scary thing. I just googled my book title and found it on Amazon already. I’m still writing it! The book ‘Mr Moon Has Left the Stadium’ is a funny account of my life as the West Ham United FC announcer. It comes out on August 1st. It has to be handed […]

This Mr Moon fellow has been arriving and leaving the stadium during games for as long as I can remember. There’s nothing more annoying than people arriving midway through games is there? You’re in […]
I filmed a very interesting feature today with the designer of the world’s first rocking piano. Sarah Davenport created it from a 1900s piano once owned by the Hong Kong ambassador. It rocks back and forwards as you play it. I should point out that there is some camera trickery at the start of the […]
The Chippendoubles, stars of Britain’s Got Talent have unveiled their latest lookey-likey. It’s a very convincing Jeremy Nicholas, not quite as realistic as Mr T or Simon Cowell, but certainly a passable imitation of the real thing.
