Sports Letter: Weak or witty?

Click to follow
Sir: I would be delighted to respond to Barbara Brown's request for letters on your cricket correspondent, Martin Johnson. I think he is appalling. I am sick to death of wading through his feeble puns and weak jokes in an attempt (often in vain) to find out what happened in the match. I am quite amazed that Ms Brown should compare him to John Arlott, whose writing was distinguished by a deep knowledge of the game and a feel for the English language. To put Martin Johnson's juvenile irritations in the same league is an insult. Thank goodness for Glenn Moore's straightforward and intelligent analysis.

Yours sincerely,
