Thommo goes mad, Nicholas is stunned

The beautiful thing about Sky’s live football round up show is that the pundits have to react on the spot and often their true feelings are painted on their faces for all of us to see.

And so it was last night as the reports came in at full time, only for Phil Thompson to yelp when Aaron Lennon scored to make it 4-4 at the Emirates. Thommo could barely contain himself, embodying the enthusiasm and rush of energy that burst through most viewers as the final minutes of the game unfolded.

By contrast, former Gunner Charlie Nicholas was virtually paralysed during Thommo’s report, unable to speak, move or react as his beloved Arsenal conspired to throw away two points. His face (unless you are an Arsenal fan) was a peach.
