I wonder if that know-nothing twat Crooks ever wonders himself why he never gets asked his opinion on any other footballing platform.  If he is, I've never seen, read or heard it.
I think he is single handedly destroying the case for positive discrimination.

Pearce is a twat, his level of scrutiny of the performance tells you all you need to know about his management skills.

He commentated* on the game Saturday and predicted a Brighton 4-3 win at 3-1.  It was also left to his colleague to point out that if you concede five you probably dont deserve to win. Then we scored again.

Talksport stands apart in terms of low quality programming. They are always dreadful and not worth listening to.

Disagree, some of their programmes are quite good, it depends entirely on the presenters. Laura Woods used to be really good in the morning, and I like Hawksbee and Jacobs in the afternoon. I can listen to White and Jordan, but most of the rest of it is pretty bad, especially Jamie O'Hara and Jason Cundy, who are a pair of absolute bellends.

A couple of Thursday's ago I played five-a-side in the evening, and had to take my missus' fifteen-year-old Audi A3 with a crap radio.  On the way home, I let the radio scan to find whatever it could, and it found TalkSport - the first time I've listened in, well, I've no idea, but MANY years. It was these two talking about Brighton losing to AEK Athens earlier in the evening, and it was abysmal.  The sort of stuff you'd hear in the playground.  Bellends is being VERY kind to them.  They were absolutely REVELLING in Brighton's defeat, clearly designed to rile up the Brighton fans - I'm assuming to get them to call in? Maybe one of them has a big anti-Brighton bias, I've no idea, but you wouldn't ever listen to something like that if you wanted to listen to a genuine footballing discussion, or, god-forbid, to actually "learn" something.  It made Soccer AM sound like a Mensa meeting.

I listened for about five minutes and then turned it off.  I have no plans to ever listen again.  The only time I see any Talksport content is when the odd clip goes viral on social media.

Was it Cundy doing that bloody stupid "has anyone seen"....before proceeding to take the piss out of the team who've lost?

As for O'Hara?  Wasn't even a decent fucking player...

What gets me is these footballers like Gabby , Cundy Ohara are getting these presenter jobs that really should be for journalists , media experienced people.  Half of them cant string a sentence and just trade off their name

Yeah, like that Statman off the other thread. I think Id much rather see him analysing on MOTD that that guffawing clown Richards or his mate Shearer.

Statman is very good and is used on Radio 5 live where he has the space to breathe. His content is very detailed and a bit niche for MOTD though where you only really have 90 seconds to say anything about the game.

I actually don't mind MOTD.  I don't love Richards.  But I don't mind Lineker and Shearer too much.

That 'Statman' thing up the thread a bit is quite good too.  I'd love to know if the stuff Emery works on with the players is 'just' that detailed or is another level up again.

I like MOTD too.  Most football fans have a 'no one likes us' attitude, even the Sky darlings always think there's a conspiracy.  I don't think there's any bias against us whatsoever in the punditry, it's just as a club for the last 20 years we haven't been as interesting as we think we are and the coverage reflects that.

I think the punditry is mostly pretty good in the short time they have and they'll usually try to find something interesting in their analysis.  I even find myself agreeing with Danny Murphy more often than not and he's more reasonable than he gets credit for.

Finally, I think the chemistry between the presenters is entertaining and Linekar is an excellent host.  Sometimes it's be careful what you wish for as it could be a lot worse.
