Ah yes..... sold my tickets as we couldn't go. Still, DS1 out with one of his best mates so no real need to. Still................

The commentary gets me
"Craig Doyle passes to Maradonna" - sureal

yummmmm David Ginola is on now

Whizzz Sat 27-May-06 20:28:35

oh & DS said "I thought Maradonna was a lady" (Madonna I assume)

Earlybird Sat 27-May-06 20:28:54

I've got it on. Stunned to see David Ginola with so much grey hair!

MarsLady Sat 27-May-06 20:30:15

Who's Craig Doyle?

Earlybird Sat 27-May-06 20:31:32

Irish fellow who used to host one of the travel shows. Not sure what else he's done...

Is it me or is Robbie Williams quite chubby atm?

MarsLady Sat 27-May-06 21:06:37

Maradonna scores after a handball..... class! lol

Earlybird Sat 27-May-06 21:08:44

He doesn't look chubby in the face, but the uniform doesn't do him any favors. How tall is he? If he's short, its inevitable he won't look as long and lean as some of the others.

Whizzz Sat 27-May-06 21:31:56

Yeah Robbie !!!!!

JonesTheSteam Sat 27-May-06 21:36:29

Robbie is apparently about 6 foot 1.

A friend of mine plays in a band in that hotel where they had the celeb golf tournament.

None of us believed him - I always thought he was really short.

But it's true according to IMDB!!!!

Earlybird Sat 27-May-06 21:37:28

Really, is he that tall? I imagined him to be about 5'6"!

JonesTheSteam Sat 27-May-06 21:39:05

Me too. But my friend says otherwise.

Perhaps he was short when he started in Take That - he was a mere child!!!!!

JanH Sat 27-May-06 21:44:27

Take your pick :

Does anyone know how tall the beautiful Sir Robbie actually is??? harry - cardiff

no, he is 185cm! but look smaller on telly ! lol
I have a feeling he's 176cm tall. Virghinia Helsinki
rob williams is 170cm Verona Feldbush has said Arschbock, Schweinfurt
beautiful Sir Robbie is 1.75 cm high ! ;) incognito
I read this in a magazine. Robbie is 185cm long. Heidi Masku, Finland
6'3" - hjghj
Rob is a bit over 6 feet - Joanna
1.85 i saw in magazine renata Lithuania
Robbie is 6 feet and 1 inch Birgit Cologne/Germany1.85 i saw in magazine renata Lithuania
Robbie is 6 feet and 1 inch Birgit Cologne/Germany
Robbie is 6FT 2 inches Nicole Edinburgh

from Stoke

I saw the other day that Richard Hammond claims to be about 5'8 and I don't believe that either...

JonesTheSteam Sat 27-May-06 21:50:36


Friend is 5 ft 11 (and a bit!!) and said he felt incredibly short as all the blokes playing in that Chris Evans golf thing were so tall - all over 6 ft.

Except Michael Douglas!!!!!

Piece about the Somethin' Stupid duet with Nicole K - <<There is also an intimate collaboration with the fragrant Nicole Kidman on the wondrous 'Somethin' Stupid'. "Nicole has such a beautiful singing voice," says Robbie. "I was amazed how well our voices worked together. I think the fact that we're the same height really helped too!">>

NK's page from IMDB: 5'10½

(Mad ol' Tom Cruise 5'7 - maybe Robbie was taking the piss?)

R Hammond also 5'7 allegedly

(So Clarkson should be about 7' but he's only 6'4! )

JonesTheSteam Sat 27-May-06 22:03:20

I should think he was taking the piss there though, she had just split up Tom 'short-arse' Cruise, had she not?

Friend was genuinely surprised by Robbie's height.

Also Chris Evans - apparently taller than Robbie at 6 foot 2. Again someone who always looks short to me!!!

JanH Sat 27-May-06 22:08:16

DH was saying this evening that footballers - including Beckham and Shearer who I'd always thought of as tall and huge - are actually really slight because they're so fit.

He said he saw a bunch of them in a Manc hotel once and they all looked like schoolboys. (MInd you his eyes are failing )

You just can't tell from seeing people on the telly or in pictures, can you?

JonesTheSteam Sat 27-May-06 22:41:51

Very true.

(At least, that's what I always tell myself when I see photos of myself - 'I'm not really that fat!!!' )

And don't forget to watch one of the BEST films ever, Mike Bassett England Manager, on TV next Weds (can't rememeber what channel). Dean Lennox Kelly, Bradley Walsh and the final song is a Robbie one..... a connection?
