'Very funny behind the scenes stories, terrific interaction with guests - and good value.'
Ray Stubbs and Mark Lawrenson were the mainstays of BBC's Football Focus. Firm friends, they brought a wealth of knowledge to the studio and to live events. For after dinner audiences they dip into their enormous treasure trove of football tales, and have great fun fielding questions from the floor.
Ray began his career as a player with Tranmere Rovers, before he was forced into an administrative role. Switching to broadcasting, he joined BBC Manchester as an assistant producer on snooker, darts and bowls as well as A Question of Sport. In 2009 he made a high profile switch to ESPN as the main anchor of the new channel's football output.
Mark Lawrenson is best remembered for his partnership with Alan Hansen at the heart of the Liverpool defence, which is still seen as one of the best in club football. He was capped 39 times by the Republic of Ireland, before injury brought his playing career to a premature end. After hanging up his boots, he managed Oxford United and worked alongside Kevin Keegan as a defensive coach at Newcastle.
