I was watching The Big Match Revisited the other day - I'd forgotten how camp Martin Tyler sounded back in the day.

What they do on MOTD can't be described as punditry. You hear more interesting football discussion down the pub. Hansen looks like he considers having to turn up and attempt to earn his money beneath him (the smug twat), why Lawro is a pundit when he doesn't even seem to like football (or, indeed, anyone or anything) is beyond me, and Shearer gets paid to describe what's happening on the action reels as we are watching it ("and you see here he gets the ball, turns the defender and has a shot at goal and again, you see here, he gets the ball, gets a good shot away and the keeper makes a good save"). It's laughably bad. It says it all when the only person who offered any insight (Dixon) quit.

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.


Nevin and Murray are good friends in real life, it was a bit of banter.

As for Martin Tyler, he's starting to lose it and really letting his colours show when commentating on United games.

Completely agree. Can't stand Murray and his smug, patronising tone. Chappers is alright, quite inoffensive which is as good as it gets on the bbc these days. Hansen and co are total shit, god knows why they're employed. Lineker's role is quite sad really because it's obvious from Twitter he knows his football and watches a lot of foreign games. And yet all he done is ask inane questions to those clueless twats.

Dream line-up:

Presenter: James Richardson
Pundits: Gary Neville, Lee Dixon, Michael Cox from Zonal Marking or another informed journalist.

Murray was the least offensive thing about MOTD 2...it's the cunts on the other sofa with their "you've never played the game" attitude that's the problem.

Yeah, Chapman is fine, and Murray was alright, but really it the guys on the other side of the table who ought to be shifted on.

I didn't mind Murray and I dont mind Chapman,the problem lies with the pundits/analysts.
Dixon seemed fine yet he either was booted off or he chose a better paycheck,dont blame him if it was the later.
Nevin is ok,though he's better on 5live,Hansen offers little apart from hyperbole bullocks,Sheaer comes across as Mr Simpleton,Lawrenson seems wasted/fed-up (again he's better on 5live imo),Robbie Savage is....,well,Robbie Savage,Freidal (when on) is sloooow/boring and Jason Roberts is egotistical douche.

so...

Laudrup on MOTD tonight. Finally some class and charisma on the show. Lineker must be hoping some of it rubs off.

According to Charles Sale of The Daily Mail (i got it off yahoo, i'd never read that shit) Alan Hansen will be leaving MOTD after the world cup.

Have been a big Hansen fan for years, he is maybe the best at getting to the heart of the matter and saying what is good or bad in a informed, entertaing way. Agree that in recent years he has become repetive but then that might be more down to the format of the show than him. Hansen really comes into his own at International Tournaments when there is a little more to talk about than just ref decissions and poor defending/great attacking play. I for one will miss him.

I'm not sure that I could ever describe Hansens punditry as 'entertaining'. If it wasn't for the fact that he's often sat next to that sour bastard Lawro I'd think he was the most dour pundit on tv. He's upped his game slightly since Neville removed the fog from everyone's eyes and showed them what real football punditry is, but he still acts as though he's above it all and phones it in a fair bit.

I found him to have a good sense of humour and to be very dry, also seems very laid back to me and sort of guy I can see going for a pint with.

Lets get one thing straight the BBC punditry coverage will never be like SKY.Its just not feasible due to match-coverage,money and time constraints set out by the beeb.But it does need a stronger sense of optimism/freshness and a new 'spark' because Hansen,Lawro (who I actually like on 5live),Shearer and the other bunch of character-less so-called professional pundits offer nothing more than the typical football cliche week after week,its like Groundhog Day.

The show just needs a new set-up.A kick-up the backside.

But if you take Neville and Rednapp away couldn't you say the same about Sky? And while I give Neville credit for a being a good pundict he is still a smug twat

Just like the BBC's approach to covering Football, and Sport always have done.

Did a larger post but lost it.

I'd also have Richardson with an interesting Journo with a sense of humour like Raffy Honigstein/Gab Marcotti/Balague/Lowe.
Throw in a pro who dare have an opinion and you're there.

He seems to be right on more transfers than most though, he does like to natter however!! James Richardson is a great shout though, he should be back now, right now dammit!

Sorry but I cant stand the guy.
You throw enough darts at the board and sooner or later you'll hit the bullseye,that's my take on Balague and his 'info'.

Marcotti is a better choice.

I'm not fond of Marcotti funnily enough, I know he is well informed, but I just can't take to the guy.
