Not a big surprise...but he's still not much of a personality, despite his sporting achievement.

I still cannot believe that Andy won this Prize.
I appreciate it that he won the Wombledon, but he is not really a great sports personality that he will wow the crowds and inspire the next generations.

Fits right in with the majority of previous winners then...

I'm warming to him slightly. I thought his acceptance speech was pretty good. I'm very happy, it's just my voice makes me sounding bored. Winning Wimbledon was a massive achievement so winning SPOTY was without doubt fully deserved!

I agree. I used to watch the programme when I was in the UK but it turned into a right old load of pony. Was it any better this year?

I see Fergie won a special award - how to drop your successor in the shit, I presume?

I'm gonna watch it later today. I saw Fergie get his special award. I think it must have been fairly uncomfortable for Moyes up on that stage. I thought Fergie might have taken the chance to back him. He didn't LOL
