Never overbearing, never smug or arrogant, just a bloke who likes to chat (almost in lay person's terms) about the game. Was also responsible for one of the most comical dives in football history when he fell over in the penalty area during the Arsenal-Wolves 1998 FA Cup semi-final with no-one within a couple of yards of him.

I like Steve Claridge, you slate him for saying teams are set up wrong or right, but in general he is right. He has passion and i think says what general football fans think. red-devil83, i too like Waddle just cant stand it when he continues to say "Listen" at the start of his sentences ... we are listening and yes he is generally right
