Ron Sings!
Ron Reveals New Musical Direction on Johnny Vaughan Show

Last week, our chum Ron Atkinson appeared on the very entertaining BBC1 Johnny Vaughan Tonight show to promote his new album. 

No, seriously. We can prove it.

You see, Ron has got together with various TV football personages to cut an "album" of standards. Ron himself opted to go the Sinatra route previously trodden by his old mucker Tel Venables. Gabby Logan and Ally McCoist got together to record a duet of "Something Stupid." Reports that Jimmy Hill contributed a rendition of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" were sadly unconfirmed at time of going to press.

Here's an AVI clip of Ron in the recording studio, seriously in the "groove". (Not recommended for modem users.)

Ron proved himself a game enough interviewee, although the entire exchange with Vaughan proved to be regrettably Ronglish-free. Still, we did get a taste of the wit and wisdom of the great man.

His career:

"Everything I've done, I've enjoyed - playing, coaching, managing."

A possible new direction for TV football coverage:

"I've got a great idea for an alternative football programme for after midnight where you're allowed to say exactly what you think. There would only be one show, but it would be a best-seller. We'd all get locked up afterwards."

What Ferguson should say to Keane:

"Hey, look, you. You better get yourself sorted, pal, or you've got a problem otherwise."

Compliment for the boy-band prat sitting beside him:

"If you earn it, you deserve it - I'm listening to the young lad here... he's obviously enthused about what he does."


Vaughan, Ron and boy-band prat

Politics:

Vaughan: "Should we invade Iraq?"
Ron: "I think we'd be better off invading Tie Rack."

On tipping:

"Whenever I go to the States, I take a bundle of money and throw it in the air, because you tip him to go there, him to go there, and him to go there. It does my head in."

On kissing a fan (Vaughan had earlier been asking the boy band prat about kissing fans):

Ron: "I've kissed a fan."
Vaughan: "Nice lad?"
Ron: "He was a lovely fella."

On Diana Rigg:

"She was fit, but I preferred the other one. Joanna Lumley."
