Alan David Hansen (born 13 June 1955 in Sauchie, Clackmannanshire, Scotland), is a full-time miserable git, football pundit and occasional fish smuggler and gun-runner for the BBC. As a pundit, Hansen has acquired a reputation as "not quite as rubbish as the other pundits".
Hansen was apparently born in the Scottish part of England which is why he supports England at football, water polo and archery. He had a marvellous footballing career for the club he supported as a child, known locally as "Luverpoool", and also part-time for his local third division side, Scotland after it was confirmed he had not collected enough crisp packets to play for local rivals England.(see cock-muncher, Gary Lineker)
Hansen is known to live in Southport but sometimes on a Wednesday dashes inland for his favourite pudding chips and gravy from a chippy in Blackburn run by darkies. Hansen sees it as his patriotic duty to be a pundit on Match Of The Day, for the Premiership and England games but he is equally passionate about spending much of his free time with fellow Englishman Mark Lawrenson, chatting about Sunday roasts and cricket. Sometimes he also talks about defenders in football, and his bedroom wall is littered with posters of his role model, England captain John "absolutely sensational" Terry and of his lovechild, Stevie "fook me worra pass" Gerrard.
The first sightings of Hansen were said to be around 37AD, when he invented football as a way of raising self-esteem amongst inner city dinosaurs. It is said that he is such a football genius, his brain is the shape of an Adidas Tango football. Nowadays the person that most people recognise as Hansen, is actually a robot, which possibly explains why he never gets older, and why he always says the same thing (Liverpool and Chelsea defending sensational, the rest appalling). The current Hansen robot that we see on our screens was designed by his long-term friends Michael Jackson and Heath Ledger to guarantee the real Hansen would live forever - just like Jackson and Ledger naively planned to do. On close friend Gary Lineker's advice the robot was manufactured with an axe scar on the right side of his Scottish forehead, implemented lovingly by Mr Gary "Self-Love" Lineker himself.Alan is a well known hater of foreigners and automatic gear-boxes and blames Arsenal F.C. for most problems in the modern world.
Hansen is also president of the Scottish Owl Preservation Society (SOPS) and as a player once missed a major football tournament due to owl related injuries (see Trivia). It has been rumoured Hansen's obsessional owl-fancying tendencies have led to spells of therapy in the Sporting Chance Clinic. Hansen himself has always refused to comment publicly on such rumours. However rumours persist of a set of polaroid snaps of an inebriated Hansen in 'compromising positions' with Tawny and Barn Owls taken at the BBC's Christmas party 2004.
It is also reported that Alan Hansen had sex with a donkey in 2004. This is a claim which he has strongly denied and a short video clip of the incident is inconclusive as it only shows footage of some hairy (possibly animal) legs and Hansen's thrusting buttocks and face shouting "Atrocious defending. You left the box right open. NOW you'll be punished".
The Tuna-gate Scandal
On 28th June 2009 Hansen and fellow BBC presenter Ray Stubbs were arrested crossing the Czech-German border at 3.15 a.m. in a 7.5 ton vehicle, attempting to smuggle 34,217 tins of tuna into the former communist state. Police ordered Stubbs and Hansen out of the vehicle and later the tuna was deactivated in a controlled explosion. Hansen and Stubbs remained in custody for a week refusing to speak to Police or pass solids. It later emerged that Hansen's wife, Deirdre Rachid's birthday had been approaching and the normally organised Scot in a desperate attempt to get "the right present", had been persuaded by former Think Of A Number host Johnny Ball that tuna was illegal and unavailable in the Czech Republic and could be lucratively traded for automatic weaponry in Prague. It later emerged that Johnny Ball was a lying bastard.
