:thup: That's a useful comparison of the time delays.... Especially if you are betting in play!

On the pundits.... One of the newspapers compared the BBC to the banter you get in the pub, as they are so relaxed with each other (which is where Lineker excels) and the ITV as stiffer like a dinner party with people who don't each other well. Generally I find the BBC panel for the big games more enjoyable.

Onthe plus side for ITV Bilic speaks his mind and Gary Neville is usually astute but he annoyed me yesterday trying to blame the keeper for Russia's first goal. he said it was a yard and a half inside the post and 'Courtois would have got it'. Firstly, Courtois is a giant, and second when it crossed the line it was close to the post, the curl meant it had come back inside a lot by the time it hit the net. I thought Neville made himself look churlish with that comment.

Yep, some of Neville's criticism of keepers when conceding goals is ridiculous.

John Champion with McCoist on ITV is my favourite commentary combo.

Trouble with many pundits is they have limited vocab. "He stuck the ball in the back of the net" need only be "he scored" yet they repeat it over and over again.

Martin Keown sounds like a thick bumpkin. Terrible co-commentary. :thdn:

He is always shocking. At one point he had a go at the Croatia player for time wasting. Er Martin they were losing at the time in the World Cup Final, why on earth would he be time wasting.
