      Well I prefer them to that cockney tw*t Paul Merson, can still remember his gobs***e laugh during our 2nd 11 6-3 hammering to Arsenal in the League Cup when asked if we had a chance against Barcelona.

      Perhaps his other teeth will fall out live on air next time 🤣

      Standard of commenary overall is shocking. The whole purpose of it is to paint the picture of whats unfolding on the pitch.

      Yesterday I done an experiment with my son. He closed his eyes for 5 minutes and jyst listened to tyler. He had not a clue what was going on or where the ball was because the commenatary didnt folliw the game. Pure waffle and nonscence talk. The blind or visually impaired surely cant keep with the game.

      Years ago every pass was told. Mcmahon to Beardsley back to mcmahon in the centre circle, he plays it left to Barnes and so on, you could picture the play. Its attrocious now

      I mentioned in the match thread yesterday that the fact he kept calling Adrian,Alisson was both ignorant at best and disrespectful at worst.

      I'm not being ageist or trying to sound over the top but somebody needs to take Martin Tyler out the back and shoot him.

      Utter drivel.

      Edit: add Sky Sports version of Carra aswell.

      Drury and Beglin were desperate for Timo Werner to score tonight, when his offside goal went in, I thought these two would be pulling each other off under the table, they were that excited!

      Owen claiming Mane not going down for Pens as will give Mo a penalty chance . Must admit he didn't struggle falling down last night outside of the box  :lmao:

      Credit where credit is due.

      Finally our game had 2 ripper commentators, the one I really like is Andy Townsend, am sure he's a closet Liverpool supporter also liked think his name was Bill Leslie, as well.

      Hope they commentate our games for the rest of the season.

      They sh*t all over Drury and that c**t Jim Beglin!!!

      Is he f**k!! If anything he's either Chelsea or Villa!! Two main clubs he played for. I guess none of you international lot have been subjected to him talking tactics. When ITV had prem highlights this knobhead had his own little 10 mins with the "Townsend Tactics truck" To say it was grim would be an understatement.

      aye townsend is terrible.

      Ill say again, the best commentary this season has come from Amazon Prime.

      Best saturday show, is now BT score.

      Soccer saturday is terrible now.

      Mate, every time I hear him, (that's twice this season) he's only had sympathy the way he talks about us.

      During the games, it's like he wants us to do well.

      Haven't picked up any resentment from him at all. Compare that to that f**k Jim Beglin and the differences are astonishing.


      If I didn't know better, I would have said Townsend used to play for us not Beglin, the C**t!!!

      Hate Townsend. Used to do champions league on ITV. Picked up on him straight away. Didnt matter if it was Barca with Xavi Intesa and Messi all the idiot ever did was call for crosses into the box.

      Remember saying to my Dad watch this Andy Townsend moan all match about delivery from set pieces. And that is all he did.

      Never seen him play but I'm guessing that's what he was about as a player trying to get his head on stuff.

      Poor Stelling now is that bloke who has lost all his work mates and can't be arsed with the new ones.

      I understand why they did it, but they could have just phased them out rather than in one big swoop and the worst one Merson kept his job!

      I don't understand why they did it at all, it certainly wasn't what the audience wanted and the first rule of media is to give the public what they want, oh and a little hint to all newly woke companies out there, social media does NOT represent the people at large.

      The art of commentary is dead.

      They now want to be part time commentators, part time football experts, part time comedians and overall wafflers.

      Very rare now they explain the flow of the game as it unfolds.

      Said on here a few weeks ago a blind person must have no idea of where the game is on the field..Next game you watch close your eyes for 5 minutes so you only have the commentstor to be your eyes. After the 5 minutes see if you have a clue as to whats going on or where the ball is

      It would be ok, if they had replaced the old guys with new folk with personality, but they are all boring cardboard cutouts, just there to be young, female or black, they have just tried to fit the demographic they think the world expects now.

      I really only use sky sports now for golf & LFC matches.
