I've met him a few times myself mate. Didn't care for him. Gave me the same spiel on 3 different occasions trying to come across as Barry big *******s. Trying too hard to be intimidating. Wasn't very impressive.
Give me Tony Quigley any day. Straight talker & menacing without having to bat an eyelid.
That said, Smith can be quick witted, articulate & funny. As far as 'Scousers on the telly who make me cringe' go, he's around the bottom. I actually think he could get a dodgy alphabet world title if managed right & even become a decent pundit.
