Former Coventry and Aston Villa striker Dublin sent social media wild with his signature mention of ‘stairs leading up to bedrooms’ after Mowbray referenced the neighbourhood backdrop of Marine’s Rosset Park.
Mowbray said: “The man alongside me couldn’t be enjoying himself more this afternoon – Dion Dublin is watching football surrounded by homes.”
Referring to the pair’s position in the commentary box, Dublin replied: “At least their stairs will be leading to bedrooms, we had to come up a ladder tonight.”
Several fans were anticipating a line from Dublin regarding the game’s unusual setting, with one tweeting: “If Dion Dublin doesn’t mention the houses on the other side of the pitch and get the phrase ‘stairs going up to the bedroom’ into his co-commentary honestly what is the point?”
After the remark from Dublin, one viewer tweeted: “Big fan of Dion Dublin referencing Stairs leading up to the Bedroom within the first minute tonight.
“Just loves it. What a guy.”
Another commented: “Dion Dublin referencing ‘stairs going up to the bedroom’ while commentating might just be the greatest moment of my life.
