Oscar? Will they be signing Felix too? Now that would be an odd couple.


WHERE'S MY CHECK BBC?

Well I suppose we can all look forward to Harry making his debut. I can already guess his most often used statement will be 'e's a a great player, I tried to sign him once' really can't wait to hear Harry making Jamie look insightful.

I hope everyone else has written to Venky's telling them what an excellent appointment Alan Shearer would be, just to try to shift him from the MotD couch. (Even if it only would be to the end of the season).

Next Lawro to Bolton!!!

I'm actually half hoping that they go with Roy Keane just so in a couple of months time it will be easy for Rovers supporters to change their banners to KeaneOut

Well we wanted change.

Murray to be replaced by Chappers

Hansen and co don't like the fact Murray gave opinions. They want Chappers to ask more questions to them.

It's Hansen they need shipping out. It's just going to mean more time for "grit and desire" shite from the useless pundit.

That's fucking shocking to be honest. I like Mark Chapman, don't get me wrong, but Colin Murray is the perfect late night Sunday host on MOTD2, and hilarious on Radio 5.

This:-

Alan Hansen sneeringly told Murray on one occasion that he should leave the negative comments to the experts.

has properly fucked me off.
I think the MOTD crew are 10 years past their sell by date now. I'm the most biased Lineker worshipper on the planet, but with him, Lawrenson, Hansen and Shearer, they make the worst football pundit team on the TV by a mile.
I've watched football since the 70's, and while I'm no expert, I like to think I know a bit about the game. I often listen to Pat Nevin, Gary Neville and a few others (even Robbie "God" Savage) and learn something new, and realise that I know fuck all about football. That's what I want, in-depth knowledge without being patronised.

I just wonder what goes on at the BBC sometimes.

I very rarely watch MotD 2 as I've usually seen / heard the games on Sunday, or at least followed the MBM coverage. So, I've never really seen Murray and this will have very little effect on me. But I do remember that his predecessor the all round annoying blob that is Adrian Chiles used to voice (IMO) the weirdest most knee-jerk unknowing opinions (I understand he may still do this on ITV but I've managed to tune him out now).

Hansen is a tit. I remember many years ago when I first noticed that his job title of senior analyst had been added I found it hilariously funny. If he watches 10 minutes of Neville he should be deeply ashamed of himself, but I think the couch collective is too smug to ever do that.

Is there some sort of rights issue that prevents Sky Sports from doing a proper 2 hour highlight show on Saturday nights with Gary Neville? I'm guessing that since Sky have rights for live games they have to leave other channels show highlights. I know Neville gets to do analysis on MNF and Super Sunday but I'd love to see him do a full MOTD type thing.

Yes there is. I think its kind of complicated and is why the repeat of MotD is on so early on Sunday as BBC have the rights up to 10AM the next day or something funny.

That comes as no surprise to me. Hansen is one of the most self important cunts on telly which is pretty rich considering he hasn't said anything worth listening to in a decade and a half. I started recording MotD on Sky+ a good while back and tend to fast forward the analysis these days. Nobody can make a game of football sound more uniteresting than Shearer (although Schmeichel does run him close) and Hansen and Lawrenson should have been put out to pasture at the turn of the millenium. They also got rid of Dixon, who was the only one with anything of note to say, so fuck MotD as far as I'm concerned.

The over use of the word sensational is what boils my piss. Someone needs to give Shearer and Hansen a thesaurus for their birthday.

They didn't get rid of Dixon. He quit as he was told to take a pay cut whilst Hansen got a pay rise

That's as good as forcing him out really though isn't it?

I wonder if the BBC are aware of the level of vitriol directed towards Hansens "punditry" these days. I used to like him back in the mid 90's but he became a parody of himself by the end of that decade. I honestly haven't come across anyone who rates him, at all, in a good while so it surprises me that he's not only been getting payrises but is also able to call the shots.

I thought Hansen had also taken a cut from his 1.5M a year salary *gulp*

I mean seriously, we might all think that some footballers are overpaid, but at least they put in a jog every week (well most of them). I swear that Hansen doesn't even watch most of the games he offers an opinion on.

I know he's most famous for his "you can't win anything with kids" moment. But surely his most embarassing was predicting that England would beat Germany, mainly based on the fact that he knew nothing of any of the incredibly talented German team, because he never saw a game outside the PL. Shocking Alan, shocking!

EDIT: Although I've always suspected that Shearer doesn't actually get paid and just turns up every week as he has nothing else on at the weekend.

The only shining lights are Neville and Dixon. When you think Hansen is paid 40,000 an episode you would think he would actually do some work to do his job. I remember when Dixon had said he had done some research during the world cup and the rest of the panel made fun of him. They come across as people who think they deserve to be there rather than seeing it as a position to actually do some decent work.

But to be honest commentary and punditry in the country is awful overall.

For some reason Sky think it's a good idea to have Niall Quinn commentating on games. Which results in me watching the game on mute. I'd much rather listen to fanzone than his incessant droning.

Martin Tyler seems to have let his colours be known too. I know he hates United, but at least try and act impartial these days.

The SKY commentator on the non-Premiership games is Don Goodman. He is absolutely rubbish, has nothing of note to say, doesn't watch the game, and more annoyingly, he seems to have it in for Leicester every time they are on, which incidentally is why I dislike him so much
On Friday night's game he said something along the lines of "Middlesborough deserve something out of this game" despite Schmeichel barely making a save and Leicester hitting the post/crossbar 3 times!

Good riddance. Murray is an annoying little twerp. I wanted Pat Nevin to ram those glasses down his throat after his condescending bollox to Nevin's explanation of the Caulker/Rooney incident.

Chapman is hardly Bill O'Herlihy but he's an improvement.

I quite liked Dixon when he was MOTD, i'd rather listen to him than Alan 'abysmal' Hansen. And you're right, Tyler is a twat.

My very unstereotyped view of the MotD studio goes something like this:

"Way ay Alan. What ya up to mate? Its funny that innit. I'm Alan and you are Alan and we both play football. No wonder we are besties. Want a newkie brown, Alan? I'm knackered I've been creosoting fence all afternoon."

"Would you not be minding your elbows when you sit down Shearer. And none of your beer pish. I'm drinking whiskey and neat, without ice." AH sees Colin Murray and stands up aggressively. "What did you say Murray? What the fuck did you say ya wee scrote? See me, cos I see you Jimmy. Come over here again and I'll give you a Glasgow Kiss. See me, I've got scars I have. I'm well hard".

(Lawro comes in) "Eh. Calm down, calm down Alan. Ah, are we watching football lads? You'll never guess what I found out today. That West Brom, they are only in the Premiership, who'd have thunk that, eh?"

(Gary comes in) "Anyone want a taste of my prawn cocktail?"

(Hansen and Lawro holding their noses, with Shearer trying to join in) "Poooohie. Gary smells of pooh. Eh, Gary, did ya shit yourself again or summet?"
