Like her a lot, one of the only people not afraid to stick it to our board, and she stuck up for us massively after Burnley last year, opposed to that utter slimeball Jim White.

H&J are very good, always have decent guests which leads to a good chat.

I didn't actually realise for a long time Danny Kelly was a Spurs fan, certainly not over the top like a lot of them. Also didn't look how I expected.

I can remember driving home last year, and Parry was on saying how human teleportation wasn't too far away, and that if you threw a tennis ball at a wall for a long enough time, it would eventually go through.

The whole point of the station is to be deliberately controversial or otherwise argumentative so as to encourage people to phone in and "put them right".

Don't bother.

H & J, Bob Mills, Max Rushden and Barry Glendenning - can't stand them. H&J laugh at their own jokes and appear stuck in 1978, Bob Mills sounds like a drunk uncle and is too fond of his own voice, Max Rusden isn't funny and his voice is annoying - I hate Durham and that know it all Gough

Gab Marcotti was great on all things European. Knew his onions. Long since left the building of course. Dumbing down is seen as a sound business model nowadays.

Bob Mills sounds like an old drunk. I swear he must be on the bottle before and during every show.
He is a Londoner right? I can hardly understand a word he says.

The proper presenters are good although Danny Kelly is miles ahead as the best.

Where it turns to drivel is with the ex pros and the latest trend for sports journos.
None of them add any insight to the shows or say anything other than cliches. You might just as well have some supporters on there as they would speak more sense.

The best non pro presenter on there by a country mile is Simon Jordan. Not an ex sportsman with mates to look after and articulates his opinions very well.

The two weirdos doing the fishing program at 6am on Sundays are just about tolerable.
All the rest are complete tossers.

Living off glory days. He was (from memory) vaguely amusing when he did In Bed with Me Dinner back in the day.

Ray Parlour tells the same stories over and over, gets well boring but he seems to love reeling them off!

H &J are consistently excellent IMO. I can only take the Two Mikes in small doses but am ok with Brazil because he has a different co presenter each morning. I always turn Durham and Gough off at 4pm though.

TS can’t just be dismissed though - they cover more live footballl than 5live and are making inroads into test Match cricket. Their live reporting on a Saturday afternoon is also excellent.

Depends on my mood I dip in and out of Talksport, will be on every day for weeks, then it boils my piss and I stay off for a couple of months, then back on, repeat.

Jim **** off you absolute cheese maggot infested bell end **** face ****er chops White is the only one I sort of dislike..others I can take or leave them. Brazil in the morning is probably the only one I sort of like.

Alvin Martin was a class act when he used to be on, quite like Ray Parlour and Ray Houghton, Brazil was good when he was with Mike Parry, Don't like him when he went away from Parry who was the person fishing for bites, the best ever football on radio show was 606 when Danny Baker did it, always took the fans view, really got behind the bond protests, .none have ever been as bad as David Mellor either

Mike Parry's 'Cinnamon Challenge' is one of the finest things on the internet so he deserves great praise for that.

Two Mikes show is truly awful.

Hours of them boasting about their wealth, or taking pops at one another.
