      Can’t wait for Sunday, just to hear how exited they get when shitty get anywhere near our box.
      And how lost for words they are when we score 😂😂

      I've said it before but McManaman is up there with the worst co commentators.

      Talks absolute bollocks and always seems to be wingeing about something

      Absolutely awful he is.

      In fact the whole BT setup is absolute sh*te really. Stopped watching anything before and after the game now.

      Interesting, I find him refreshing compared to some of the usual crew you get. I was certainly appreciative of him calling it like he saw it with respect to that Benfica forward throwing himself down all over the place. I thought he was reasonably complimentary of our players, something that some ex players seem to swerve for fear of being labeled as homers. Didn't really think he was worse than anyone else I would likely get on a stream.

      He's funny the way he over exaggerates his pronunciation of any word with ing at the end.

      I feel sorry for Roy Keane (and that isnt an easy thing to do) putting up with him he is another useless annoying pundit I wonder how he got the job.

      Henry’s response is something else haha, probably can’t believe he’s sharing a studio with such a moron.

      ‘Up there with Harry Kane’ - honestly, how do these ‘pundits’ find work

      Disagree mate, I find he just panders to his pay masters, only describing what we have all just seen, so no better than the usual drivel offered up by so called experts/ex- players, one of the best I’ve heard recently is Ally McCoist, he does tell you how he sees it and is refreshing to hear honest and forthright views, another is Emma Hayes, she is very good imo, she will explain certain moves a player may make and the reasons why, much better than the usual drivel offered up by the likes of Jenus, Hoddle, Macca, Savage, Townsend etc etc,
      Macca’s voice can be irritating too, akin to attaching a elastic band around a cats bollocks, mute is a much better option if he’s in the comm box !!

      F**k a Duck, really Micah, where the f**k have you been last 5 years, honestly that really is poor, the look on Henry’s face says it all, that’s insulting rather insightful, get this Micah, there’s a reason why Benzema’s at RM and Harry’s at Spud’s??

      Cos he’s black, it’s certainly not for his knowledge is it, either that or it’s his guffawing laugh, I think he’s supposed to represent a more modern take on football, but without the more successful experiences like Keane, Souness had, he’s not exactly adorned with winning medals & gongs is he ?

      I hear you, thing is I don't get Macca too much on the broadcasts I watch. In fact, I hardly ever get any of the ones you mentioned (good or bad) so maybe he's just the best of a bad bunch that I'm hearing. I don't mind him too much and his accent cracks me up. Arlo White is one I get a good bit and not knowing much about his background, I think he does a decent job.

      Like Arlo White as well. Good voice, good proper commentator who doesn't descend into the sort of cloying 'I'm your mate' style commentary of Darren 'Fletch' Fletcher on BT or David 'Crofty' Croft on Sky Sports F1. (Any commentator referred to by nickname is a warning sign).

      As billy mtnioned, I also like Emma Hayes  - don't agree with her on everything but she provides a good tactical assessment of things.

      The best is undoubtedly Ally McCoist. Enthusiastic and shows a real love and appreciation of anything good that happens in a football match. A joy to listen to.

      And, despite the earlier posts, I do like Micah. Just comes across as a fun loving, thoroughly decent guy. Smart and eloquent as well (aside from observations on Kane v Benzema!)

      I'm imagining a scenario where we (Liverpool) were 14 points ahead at one point in the season, City claw it back to one point.

      We then play against them at home, draw 2-2, and all the press is almost completely positive about Us (Liverpool).

      I can't see it.

      I think in this scenario, everyone would be saying that we (Liverpool) dropped points at home, and that we missed an opportunity to go 4 ahead.

      Yet right now everyone seems to be acting like City won the game today or got the positive result. Including all the pundits and Pep.

      I find it so odd. Maybe it's just me.
