Slav is the only thing that makes ITV bearable. But the ads, the competitions etc makes the BBC slightly better.

There never seems any chemistry between the beebs pundits.

Linear asks Thierry a question, straight answer back, moves on to shearer, direct answer back. It's boring as f*ck

But they do have Rio, Murphy, Vialli, Hartson and Keown (I quite like primate despite being a goon).

I do wish the BBC would stop saying "you can listen to England v Slovakia on Radio 5" etc when everyone knows it is on ITV.

Danny murphy is **** too. He just seems to moan, and generally sounds like everything irritates him.

Reckon he talks as much sense as any of them, admittedly thats not saying much (apart from the genius that is Slaven).

I like Slav but Clive Tyldesley genuinley ruins games for me, especially England ones. Ian Wrights annoying as well, not because of anything he says really but just his insistence on say "yep, mm hmm, exactly, agree etc" when another pundits talking.

Just heard the ITN journalist describe Rooney as England's 'talisman' twice in the pace of about third seconds. I'm going to look the word up because it's evidently changed its meaning.

Earlier the ITV commentator said after about an hour of the game something along the lines of "surely England won't have to wait until late in the game again" just as I was thinking that I'd happily take a wickedly deflected goal off the referee's jacksie because it just wasn't happening for us tonight.

Not claret and blue glasses but Bilic is head and shoulders above any other pundit when it comes to insight, observation, humour and eloquence. But even he can't save ITV from its usual overall direness.

At least ITV have my wa@kdream on their books, they said nothing about the truth, that is we did not score against a team we were odds on to beat. We have only done it once with seconds to play in three games, no wonder why you don't see poor bookies. Three times we should have won by five lengths and we have scraped one result. If you can't fu@king score you don't win. There is a void that needs filling. ***** conversion to shots attempted to scored simple. About 63:3 even I would score more than that.

It's all a bit complacent and self satisfied on the Beeb, as it has been for a while, although the commentators are better and no ads.

Agree about Pougatch, very good at his job, always has been.
Also on ITV, I love the music and retro poster opening credits, very stylish.

Can't believe no one has mentioned Glenn spinning a pass, pinching a pocket, keep calm, lost his concentration there, at this moment in time, that was good defensive play it really was Hoddle. He alone singlehandedly makes ITV unwatchable.

Hoddle - oh god no. I must be being punished for sins in a former life having to listen to him.

He also seems to encourage diving...a few times he's said "we'll played" when a player has gone down easily or "he should have gone down" when a player has been challenged.

Has there ever been a co commentator who adds so little insight as Hoddle? Talk about stating the obvious. For someone which such acclaimed coaching skills, it's a puzzle.

Bilic is probably wasted in the studio....his views during a game would be interesting. Would need someone hovering over the mute button though.

As for the Beeb, I agree Shearer adds no value. I've always like Murphy though.
