Michael Owen.  I will let you guess which category he fits into.

YBIG, we had an agreement. I do the thinking. You don't.

Hamann
Souness (When he was on RTE)

Eamonn Dunphy:"I'll tell you who wrote it, Rod Liddle, he's the guy who ran away and left his wife for a young one".

Bill O'Herlihy: Ah ye can't be saying that now Eamonn

Ian Wright has been robbing a living as a pundit. The man can't even speak properly.

I hate that trendy bar theme BBC use for their football studios.
Dress code: Smart Casual (trendy shirt and tight trousers. No jeans or trainers allowed)
Interaction: Informal (use nicknames and sh*te banter that isn't remotely funny)
Posture: Informal. Hooking your arm around the back of the sofa-optional.


YBIG, we had an agreement. I do the thinking. You don't.

Best is Brian Kerr...His accent annoys me but he knows what he is talking about. I like Hamann and Souness...Sadlier is growing on me slightly but I'll probably hate him again soon. Gary Neville is alright, the rest on British tele are poor

How did I forget Ian 'Wrighty' Wright, the anti- Michael Owen, which should mean he isn't sh*t, but he is. It just means he is boring in the opposite way;brash, full of 'bantz' and as excitable as a puppy in a sock drawer. The c*nt's c*nt.

Lee Dixon is a very decent pundit actually, not an entertainer, he is no Kerr, but a good reader of the game. Probably why his career was of a higher level than his ability, .

Worst;

Michael Owen
Robbie Savage
Charlie Nicholas
Paul Merson
Danny Murphy
Phil Neville
Iain Dowie
Everyone on that Channel 5 Football League show. They make Michael Owen look like Gary Neville and it's with a studio audience and that deserves a minus mark itself.

Andy Gray was the worst pundit I've seen and Keys was the worst presenter I've ever seen in any country in the world and in any sport.

YBIG, we had an agreement. I do the thinking. You don't.

Iain Dowie makes me laugh, largely because he looks and sounds like a deformed Max Branning

There is a horrible trend now of just getting in former great players and throwing them in as pundits, whilst ignoring the good pundits. Sky are awful for it. Recently with Thierry Henry (who just comes across as a bit of a weirdo) and also with their cricket and Golf coverage. For their cricket coverage it seems like the only criteria for doing test matches is being a former England captain.

It's only going to get worse too. The likes of Gerrard and Rooney will probably end up getting jobs when they retire. Gerrard already has a gig with BT.


A special mention for Cannavaro on ITV. Now that was awkward.

Lee Dixon does co-commentary on NBC now. He was terribly underappreciated at the BBC.

I think Niall Quinn gets the award for this post. I think Graeme Souness wanted to actually physically punch him after the Chelsea vs City game.

Before the game "Terry is still at his peak"
Afterwards when he got subbed off "Hes passed it now"

You could see the rage in Souness at the amount of sh*te he was talking
