      Steve Nicol should just shut the f**k up. Making an absolute tw*t of himself on the ESPN Yank thingy.

      Bit of a dinosaur isn't he?

      His opinions of the game are usually well behind the curve, and some of his ramblings on there are very random.

      Strange old panel they have on that channel with the similarly backward Craig Burley, Shaka Hislop with his own weird and wonderful insights topped off with Alejandro Moreno.

      That is especially true over here. It isn't what you know but who you know that gets you on a panel, especially with how ESPN has declined in the past 5 years. Nicol was very late in recognizing Klopp's brilliance, VERY late.

      The only thing worse than ESPN is the TNT/TBS/Bleacher report crew with Stuart Holden, Maurice Edu and Steve Nash. They almost single-handedly ruined the aftermath of the Barca win last season until someone in the control room mercifully and thankfully cut their sound. Watching them pre and post game you can tell they do almost no prep whatsoever. It's like "I played football ...........right." - and that's about as much insight as you get.

      .......And there is the alternative of no mark fan tv bollox!

      The lads at the Anfield wrap do commentary for our matches on the hotmic app, I used it on one the other week and it was funny as f**k.

      If you haven't heard of it you should give it a go, it's free.

      It's clever the way they do it, the app listens to the crowd noise on your TV and then links the commentary to it then you lower your telly down and listen to the lads instead, I used a Bluetooth speaker. If you like lads talking bollocks and having a laugh it's sound.

      Yeah, they are terrible, horrible CL coverage here in the US. It was a lot better when espn covered it. In my opinion.

      Yeah and to be fair that's the name of the game. I find myself flicking between their videos either shaking my head at their ramblings or just laughing at how weird it all is.

      Craig Burley and Stevie Nicol had a big row on one off them over Klopp playing the kids in the fa cup and not showing up. Was funny to see.

      Two old dinosaurs going at it and both managing to miss the point. Really kicks in around the 3 minute mark.

      Pair of kunts, hardly got anything positive to say about us, most of their innuendo is negative and always favourable towards the opposition, Macca  to be fair to him was spot on yesterday in regards to us being too slow, but more often than not like his counterpart spouts lots of bollocks,
      Now compare him to Ally McCoist, you will find a fella who exudes excitement, sounds like he’s enjoying every second of his privileged position, says what he sees and is completely impartial, and hands out praise to whoever is deserving , has a great rapport with his fellow commentators and can be funny without being critical.

      I know who I would rather listen to irrespective of who is playing.

      Just watched some of he highlights - Anybody know if they've managed to clean all the jizz up out of the commentary box left by the bad weirdo Steve McMannaman?

      Could hear him getting the vinegar strokes every time he mentioned Simeone or "Diego" (Costa)

      He was waiting all night for Simeone to do his celebratory run to their fans.

      Strange man and as terrible comments as you'll find.
