I do think Gary Lineker is slowly morphing into Jimmy Hill, his facial hair does not help him in that regard.

I'm enjoying it again. A definite sign we're rapidly improving is that I can now happily watch the other teams without soiling myself at the prospect of playing them. I won't have Sky, so the pictures alone provide me with an insightful digestible package.

I like Lineker, and as I get older I find Shearer less annoying. The rest though, I can take or leave. However I remain a fan of the double-pundit set-up, I feel it keeps the level of self-righteous pontification down. But please, never ever again let it be Hansen and Lawro.

Alan Shearer was very complimentary about our performance. Murphy was critical of Norwich.

A Liverpool fan I know says he is very unpopular at Anfield too. Apparently one of the first things Benitez did was to drop him, then sell him and they reckon he is always doing them down ever since.

Reminds me on the GotM competition when they used to add commentary to the entries that was not there in the original match as all they had done for that was to show a minute of highlights.

I absolutely loathe commentating, itís such utter drivel.  Stat after meaningless stat that has no relevance to the actual outcome of the match, getting overly excited as if everything they see is amazing and has never happened before, and very little actual knowledge imparted of whatís happening in the game aside from what the viewer can actually see himself.

If a game is on the radio I want a commentator to describe whatís happening in play, if I can see whatís happening on TV then I want a commentator to use his superior footballing knowledge to point out things that may not be immediately obvious, adding value.  Not just stupid stats and telling now and then who just passed the ball when Iíve just seen who it was myself.

I persuaded my Mum to accompany me to see Alexei Sayle in Birmingham around 1984 when I was thirteen. I was pissing myself laughing all through. My mum laughed once at a joke about Mickey Mouse having a Ronald Reagan wristwatch.

I do think it would be a better show if they could pick the most entertaining matches regardless of division to show instead of assuming that a boring goalless draw is worth anyoneís time just because itís in the Premier League.

If a match is shit, donít show it, show more of the better ones or spend more time on analysis.  These days the fans can see the highlights of anything missed online if they really want to.

I believe it was said years back comms at the game are given chance to re-do bits of commentary after the game if they weren't happy with how they described a goal at the time.

Guess some commentators you can actually hear the difference, get the feeling Jonathan Pearce is one who likes to re-do the odd goal narration while always feels like Guy Mowbray is usually good at knowing when a big incident is about to occur.

I quite like Jenas. As for Murphy he is refreshingly honest at times but always leans heavily towards the negative point of view. Shearer is pretty negative too. Considering Neville has had a reasonably decent coaching career since retiring he doesn't come across as a particularly good pundit. Tim Cahill is pretty good.

Pretty much, think everyone was sick of us just doing nothing but losing in the bleak Lambert years.

Now we're playing good football and having more marketable players in the media.

Some stats on the beeb show there has been more shots on goal by both us and the opposition combined then any other teams. Not a totally good thing though really.

Quote
Aston Villa's Premier League games this season have seen a combined 293 shots (131 attempted, 162 faced), more than any other side, with today's game seeing 44 (24 attempted, 20 faced), the most in a single Premier League fixture since Manchester United v Burnley in October 2016 (45).

I always remember playing away to Spurs perhaps 1980 and we absolutely battered them 3-1 (just before Christmas) - I remember that I was tarted up to go out with work mates afterwards.

Anyway the footage of the game was heavily edited and it appeared quite an even game on TV.

Did you also see the Chelsea vs. Newcastle game

I think the only time Newcastle got into the Chelsea half was when they changed ends at half time. I think they had one decent chance right at the death but other than that it was pure Bruce ball.

Now consider our game - although they were a dangerous outfit even with 10 men instead of accepting a 1-1 draw at home we went for it with 2 great attempts in the final 2 minutes of extra time ( 1 x Davis and the goal itself)

I do not ever think we will complain about our negativity again - we may lose games but never through being gutless and not trying to win

Thank McGrath we have Smith and not Bruce

It was the second or third game of the season I think, not long after we drew 2-2 with them in the Charity Shield. I think it was on Star Soccer but it might have been MOTD. Gary Shaw was still recovering from a pre season knee op and Terry Donovan played in his place and scored two goals. Dennis Mortimer got our other goal and Ricky Villa scored for Spurs. Ex Villa player Gordon Smith was in the Spurs line up.

I was thinking this the other day. After watching back a few times, weíre on the second set of clubs with Burnley and West Ham (after the big hammer graphic) with Jack on the right above an old school rampant lion:

Like you say, blink and youíll miss it.


Is our stadium even featured, ground looks more like Turf Moor. Odd when apparently MOTD editor is a Villa fan.

It must be Turf Moor and I have absolutely no idea whatís supposed to be growing out of the top of it as it resembles nothing from the Burnley badge.

Also no idea why the West Ham imagery is much bigger, than both Villa and Burnley especially when they have a full graphic on the screen before the one above.

Just glad that under Dean Smith we are providing enough entertainment to be getting prime billing and not last in the pecking order that we were under Bruceball

Like probably many on here last night was the first time I had watched MOTD for about 5 years. What the hell happened to Des Lynam?
Met Des Lynam a few times (when I worked the door of the north stand banqueting suite - now called the legends suite ?) when bbc did a live broadcast from villa park, usually an fa cup semi. Nice bloke, quite the charmer but the first thing I noticed was that he must be about 6 foot 5 !

The commentary on the highlights of course is edited and sometimes I find poorly done on re voicing .
Be it the added stats to a player or club or the audio of incidents like goals , pens and cards sometime have clips actually being inferior on a re-record despite intentions to make it more lively or accurate.

This west ham and Everton match is prime example . Definitely sounding a record after the match.
Like playstation game !
If you listen to audio with some goals there can be a delay and the lack of sync or some ridiculous commentary with mystic fore sight- before an event occurs.

It's the idea to have an edit which shows the highlights but motd constantly seem to miss out essential bits and then pointlessly show a second half kick off were nothing happened for example.

I think really goals now don't always have to wait till motd to see the goals.

Tonight TV offering is Premier league Goalscorers
On live at 10:20pm
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000h5kh

This follows the podcast that is available.

BBCís Match Of The Day trio, Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer and Ian Wright are bringing their knowledge, insight, wit and wisdom to brand new podcast series Match Of The Day: Top 10 - available on BBC Sounds.

Taking themselves out of the studio, the series will be recorded in Garyís kitchen and will see the guys getting into deep discussion to produce a top 10 on a variety of topics!

The top 10 model uses the much debated MOTD television running order as inspiration. Fans will undoubtedly have their own thought on who should make the list.

I can't think of anything worse, the over exposed being given more exposure via pointless arguments offered by even more pointless people.

The same old clips of the same old players.

Why not show some football, not "classic" matches, we've seen them all before countless times but archive episodes that will have some the lesser known teams and players (and for nerds like me, grounds) featured?

Why don't they just show random MOTD's from the past?

A little bit like ITV did with "The Big Match".

Juan Pablo Angel
Dalian Atkinson
Dean Saunders
Ashley Young

I omitted Darren Bent which only contentious for me though I prefer Ashley Young.
Mentions of Peter Crouch Savo Milosoveic , Milan Baros,  Andi Weimann , Wesley aren't top 10 of the era.
Tammy Abraham would have been in if played premier league with Villa
