I am fed up with crap pundits. Really fed Up. Back teeth fed up.
Take Sunday. What was the focus of the imbecile co-commentator? It was Flamini’s tackle and how he should have been red-carded. Same went for Souness the Arch-Hypocrite. Nothing about the fact that the referee, whose job it is to make such judgements, was two yards away and decided to yellow card Flam. They criticise Flamini for the tackle but not the referee for the decision. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Let’s start with Alan “Smudger” Smith. I used to chant this half-wits name. More fool me. Had I known that he was a closet Spurs fan (can there be another explanation?) I would have given him short shrift. Hard to think that a man who scored the winner in Copenhagen could be so damning of the Arsenal. I cannot recall a single time when he has praised our boys in recent times – just this week he has questioned the bottle of our lads for the run-in. Why not come out before the Leicester game and admit that he wants them to win, at least his fellow Leicester striker, Lineker has made his preference clear..
Then there are the imbeciles who have played for West Ham – Lampard, Gale, Ferdinand and Cottee. Not a brain-cell between them and yet they are allowed to spout their biased nonsense to millions.
And the Liverpool mugs; Lawrenson, Thompson & Hansen (thankfully retired) Redknapp, Souness, Macnamananananan and Owen. Dull, dull, dull – worse than that, ignorant and dull.
Thinking of stupid, how about Barton and Savage? Words fail me.
And don’t start me on how the BBC think Alan Shearer is in any way informative!
These blokes ruin my enjoyment of the game. That they are paid to do so boggles the mind.
I can understand why there is a need for an un-biased opinion in a PL game but why can’t we have a proper Gooner as our CL pundit. Get rid of that violent knob Souness or the inane grinning Lineker – let’s have Wrighty, Keown and Dicko – men who love the club. Same for the other CL teams. (Thierry is above criticism thanks to the decade of joy he gave me.)
There are some quality presenters; Gary Neville, Jeff Stelling, Carragher, Dwight Yorke, Bellamy, Tyler, Quinny and even Hoddle can inform and entertain but the general standard is lamentable.
Let’s end on a positive … James Richardson. If only the others could be as humorous, informed and entertaining. Sadly, they are not.
So … to sum up. I could do better than most, so could you.
