      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
      Well and truly dead mate,the passing of Murray Walker was for me the last of the golden era of commentators & im not just talking F1,Dan maskell,( tennis ) Peter O’Sullivan,( horse racing ) Barry Davies ( footie ) David Coleman ( many sports ) to name a few,each & everyone of these commentators knew there respective sports inside out & above all had passion ,knowledge & charisma in spades  something today’s commentators will never have while they’ve got a hole in there arse.

      The BBC got rid of Alan Green because he was to them too outspoken which of course is BBC talk for do what we say and say how we want you to say or f**k off ,

      Green was brilliant he could make a pub game sound exciting.

      I can only cancel my Sky in September. Unless I pay a silly fee. However has anyone noticed that when you turn on ssn which is less and less these days for me, there always seems to be an article on MU. They seem to be completely obsessed. Even the missus has noticed, she’s Polish and couldn’t give a f**k about football.

      Been like that for decades now mate, there is a unequivocal bias towards those clubs in Scumchester and in particular those Red MUtants, the pendulum has swung now in favour of the shiti-zens simply because they are flavour of the month, to be fair tho they are head & shoulders above everyone else this season but, next season when we are on a more even keel, they won’t by quite so flavoursome, but the bias will remain, but don’t forget that Citeh are the best ever ever football team ever to have graced the English premier league ever!  ;)

      Exploitation of the masses mate, they have us football supporters over the proverbial barrel, taking the piss is a understatement, I fu**ed sky off just after the first lockdown, I could stream games on my iPad through the trees network but that’s fu**ed now, so I got myself NOWtv and pay about £40 a month, I can watch whatever games they broadcast along with other sports such as the ODi’s V India, what I don’t get to see is the European games but I’m happy enough listening to decent commentary where the play is explained better than what you get on tv, sometimes, once the pubs are back open I won’t be missing any European games involving LFC,

      Alternatively there is always the nowtv day passes for a Tenner, in 24hrs you can get anything up to 4/5 games in, much better than forking out to the f***in greedy cu*ts at sky, bt etc.

      Green divided opinion but he was superb at capturing the moment. His commentary listening to 5 Live during the Olympiakos match will forever ring in my ears. Unfortunately for Green he just doesn't fit the profile of BBC Sport/5 Live these days. A true master.

      How infantile has BBC Sport become?

      Now you get Jermaine Jenas putting on his 'street' accent interviewing misogynistic YouTube stars like KSI about his FIFA squad while some third rate grime music plays in the background.

      They should keep all that pro gaming, Fantasy Football tips bullshit out of the way.

      Never since Cilla Black has a scouser gone out of their way to ensure that they put the 'inG's on words like 'getting and 'doing'.

      He'd call Danny Ings, Danny Ingsings, him.

      Awful commentary tonight. A lot of these ex players go out of the way to not seem biased. He didn't even recognise the foul on Mane FFS.

      Its mainly the TV money that has hiked players wages into orbit. This in turn caused the continued increase in match ticket prices.  For that impact alone, I have never, and never will pay for sky.

      That 'Are you watching Gary Neville' thing was just embarrassing really after such a big goal.
