For pete's sakes can someone get Andrew Wilson out of the sun when reporting. I'm always running for my sun glasses when he comes on (which is sadly too infrequent). Bad for the wrinkles!

What colour does arguably the broadcasting world's most revolting babypoo brown tie collection look with your dark glasses on ?! (OK he has a few rivals on Sky sports to be fair). Andrew is a great reporter who talks TGV and sense at the same time, but oi oi oi, who buys his ties ? Who makes ties that 'orrible?

Why do they always have to wear boring suits unless they're in a war zone or covering a hurricane ? They look better and report better in the Marlboro style outfits, these foreign reporter blokes!

We're getting really cerebral tonight folks!

Hmmm, was wondering when eagle eye would bring that up!

I look beyond his ties but I have to agree he looks best in casual clothes, everyone does apart from Ian Woods and Keith Graves (foreign correspondents talking), it will be a long time before we see Wilson in casual clothes again unless he pops off to another war zone that doesn't start from Bush's desk or another hurricane that doesn't emit from Bush's behind.

Why isn't Andrew Wilson covering the Democratic election stuff? I don't like Keith Graves as much.

Oh I do, I think he's quite easy to listen to. Probably Wilson is having a break, buying new ties who knows?

Well, he did have a 'pass the sick bag Alice' one on last time I saw him (worn with acceptable blue shirt, but still that vomit brown with dots).



I swear that man hunts 'em down, wherever they hide (the ties I mean). yes I much prefer his TGV talking to Keef as well. No contest.

However you know Andrew's been looking the same since I've been watching him - same haircut even....hmm. Pondering what this means. Maybe his Greatest Fan can enlighten me

Any more comments about the ties and I shall have to challenge you to a duel, frying pans at dawn, you call the toss, does he buy them at Walmarts or Woolies?



Of course he looks the same, probably down to good living, happy marriage and now he lives in the states, no more bombs going off over his head. Look at David Chater, stressed out or what? They should send him to the States to team up with Wilson.

Well, you'd win by default as eagleeye is def shuteye at dawn. Besides, I can't cook.

Yeah, I'm sure AW's timeless looks are due to good, clean , all american living

I'd love to see him teamed up with Mr Chater altho' not sure how DC would take that one, and then Woodsy would have to do the flak jacket thing wouldn't he as Sky are soooo small they can only send 2 reporters to the same place if it's as big as the US of A. And I can't see Woodsy with bombs falling round his dome. That takes a special kind of nutter, sorry, correspondent.



Frying pans at lunchtime...how does that sound? AWesome. We could sell tickets!!



PS Walmart. Rainman gear.

Lunch time it is.



I'd like to know what Andrew is doing when he is not reporting standing in the wrong light with the big round white house in the background? What do correspondents do all day?



anybody?

Apart from buying ties and getting military hair cuts ?



They shmooooze with the Washington cocktail party politico set and check out the big, um, haired bimbos on rival networks.

Occasional trips to trailer parks and back to Walmart for wet weather gear for the seasonal hurricane.

Take the kids to school....



Why are there two Skymen in the US of A when they have a team up with Fox? All other foreign news is left to one, overworked correspondent, OR one we never see (where is Laurence Lee anyone ?).



Woks at lunchtime it is then.
