Pundit watch 2012


Recommended Posts

Starting the season off with Lawro on Football Focus. So far he's said our yellow 80s kit was the worst he ever saw, and that "we're" not sure about Borini, but depends on how he links up with Suarez.

No mention of the fact we're favouring a front 3 (can see this being a problem for Ol' Sad Eyes), the fact Rodgers has worked with him before...

 

 

 

The Olympics really did spoil us

Is Wilshere actually going to make it back at all? His return date seems to be forever being pushed down the calendar.

 

Growing rumours that he is finished. Arsenal haven't been totally honest about what actual injury is, allegedly, and walking is gonna be a challenge for the lad - never mind actually playing.

Clearly an upgrade - two in fact - on Reid and Lawro

 

They look like extras from 'attack of the anorexic bikini babes'.

 

He also doubles as the punk golfing commentator and does a show with Steve McMahon. He's the scientist. McMahon is the artist....

Interestingly the guest patients on the 'Sky Sports home for the Mentally Incapable' are taking a similar line regarding how Mcleish did at Aston Villa to how Hodgson did for us.

 

They're using terms like 'perceived to have failed' and how the fans 'right from the beginning weren't interested in what he'd do which makes things difficult'. No real acknowledgement of how he nearly got them relegated.

MotD are using a main team this season of Hansen, Shearer, Mick McCarthy and 'Arry Redknapp. Lawrenson will only appear occasionally - obviously great news. Seemingly he's been relegated to appear alongside the deadwood likes of Crooks, Bright & Savage.

 

However... 'Arry. FFS.

No need for analysis, lets just trot out the same old s*** - eh, lads?

 

Watched a Dutch (I think) stream for the match - coverage was genius. Couldn't understand the commentary, which was ace, but in the studio was Ray Wilkins and three 'local' lads. Wilkins said West Brom were good value for their lead and Suarez was no good up front as he was just static waiting for crosses :blink:

Dutch pundit 1 responded: "I disagree with you Ray, and I'll tell you why. If you look at the possession stats, Liverpool have had more of the ball..." He then proceeded to engage in a conversation about the game - in Dutch. Leaving Wilkins sitting there like the spare wheel on a date :D

did the Wilkins enthuse about Joe Allen's record-breaking number of backward passes completed?

Had the pleasure of watching Peter Reid & Andy Townsend do the analysis last night. The former doesn't offer much insight and he looked like he hadn't bothered to shave his ears but he always comes across as a decent guy. The latter is a whole other barrel of s****. His inability to form a coherent, grammatically correct sentence on a regular basis and his tendency to punctuate his banal observations with mumbled grunts and head-shakes is really annoying. At least Richard Lenton wasn't presenting.

Co-commentator on sky for the Wigan-Chelsea game (may have been Alan Smith but not sure) was appalled at the treatment Wigan were dishing out to "the little Frenchman" Eden Hazard

 

The pronounciations of 'edeeeeen 'azzzzzarrrrrds' name thus far have been great.

 

Can't wait for Pleat to have a go.
