Following the recent cull by the heartless suits at ITV, the likes of Andy Townsend and Adrian Chiles will have just wanted to go away and have some quiet time where they can lick their wounds and forget about it all.
However, insult was added to Andy Townsend's injury this week as one of the most iconic items in modern television history as put up for sale yesterday - an item made iconic by Andy Townsend.
Andy Townsend's 'tactics truck' has been put up for sale on gumtree. It looks like a snip at £5,000. It looks in quality condition and the history that adorns the interior makes it a holy place.
The tactics truck may well have been the key ingredient that led the Premier League to hand the highlights package rights to ITV back in 2001. Trucks are notable for their suitability when it comes to studying tactics - television studios are famously ineffective by comparison.
Who knows what the buyer will do with the truck? Milltown was turned into apartments. Personally, I think the UK government should have stepped in and preserved the tactics truck as it was.
