    Love him or loath him, he was part of the match day experience for a quarter of a century. Good innings.

    Does this mean we’re going to be left with Little Miss Can’t Understand a Word?

    I dread to think what they’ll replace him with.

    Yes, part of the match day experience for us here on the west coast of Ireland too.
    Many’s the time, if we opened the windows when there was an easterly wind, we could catch scraps of his dulcet tones !

    Massive part of my match day going Wolves experience. As a 33 year old, he’s pretty much been at Molineux my whole supporting life! Never had any issue with him or his ‘loud’ style myself, can’t say he’s any louder than other club stadium announcers. Wish him well with his future endeavors.

    Whilst I wasn't his biggest fan because I always mentally associated him with Tom Hark and the goal music scars from when we were a joke club, I have some sympathy. The PA system is dire. You can't have a PA system optimised for both pre-match music and public address for fire or evacuation without spending some serious money. Wolves, or should I say Moxey, you will be shocked to hear did it on the cheap and the system is a jack of all trades master of none, badly designed and operationally ****e.

    I thought it was all replaced after Jez left?

    Thanks for your service anyway, never really got the antipathy towards him.

    Me neither. I got the impression that he didn't care either.

    Never had any antipathy towards him just his incessant need to play HOSL every 42 seconds from about 2pm.

    Hopefully we see a bigger catalogue of tunes pre match going forwards.

    It matters not who is on the mic as not a word can be heard on the North Bank the sound quality is so poor.

    The thing that has always bugged me is his pronunciation of the players names.I fully accept that some of the opposition African names in particular are difficult but there is no excuse when he can’t pronounce some of our players names.
    His Classic was calling De Vries as Devray,

    I'd give it to the chap leaning through the dressing room window after we clinched the title/ promotion in one of our two late 80's seasons.
    I cant remember exactly which game it was, but I'm sure you all know who I mean.

    This for me (similar age) too.

    Sad he'll probably be replaced by some more 'trendy' 'glamourous' but non Wolves supporting alternative who probably didn't know who we even were until recently!

    He really did care though, 25 years service little pay and a lot of voluntary work put in as well
    Yes he did care and awful lot
    Would be nice if we can appreciate all his efforts and wish him well as he takes his place in the stands supporting his beloved Wolves

    If he'd cared that much then he'd have communicated better. I'm not saying that he didn't care about Wolves or about the thrill of "doing" the job but surely he should have had the gumption to get feedback about what he sounded like and acted upon it. He wasn't called Shouty Man for nothing, he was awful.

    Don’t think it was that game. It was the 87/88 season, think it was the Sherpa Van semi second leg.

    I don't think anyone should be taking feedback from a handful of social outcasts on a football forum.

    Wish him all the best.

    He wasn't perfect but travelling away more often in the past few years I've realised we could have had it much worse.

    I hope we don't end up with some trendy kid who runs Fortnite dance competitions on the pitch at half time or something.

    Real shame, I understand and appreciate his reasons. 25 years Wolves service is a fantastic achievement given the sometimes testing conditions in which he was placed. Jason is one of the good guys, you'll be missed.
