TV pundit Virgo hits back at Swanny
Last week TV football pundits, presenters and socalled experts were in my sights...
I enjoyed your positive article. Sorry I am dull and irrelevant. I only won three English Football League titles and a playoff, but hey ho.
I certainly agree with every point Alan made about that irritating Lineker. But this is the same BBC that pays Chris Evans £2.2 million to completely balls up Top Gear!
Lineker is a man riding for a fall. He’s not the fluffy, cuddly saint he’d like people to think he is. The sooner he is fully exposed for what he really is and off our TV screens the better. Goodbye to bad rubbish!
There is a difference between a wage that is ‘earned’ and a wage that is ‘paid”. None of those mentioned in the article and in the comments section actually earn the amount they are paid, and yes that does include Mr Swann. Snoozy
Football highlights shows should be presented by fans as it would be more fun. I normally switch over when pundits start. The TV remote control is a great invention
Cricket pundits are much better than football pundits as they are not self-indulgent, egotistical hasbeens or wannabees. @Sullster101
Excellent read on TV pundits. Bring back ‘Match of the Week.’ Gerry Harrison was such a bad commentator for Anglia TV, he was good.
@wasafanthen Some Posh predictions for the 2017-18 season...
Gwion Edwards (above) will be the club’s player-of-the-year, whether he plays as a left wing-back or as an attacking midfielder.
Marcus Maddison will enjoy the best season of his career, but sadly for a different club. Chairman Darragh MacAnthony will reach 60K followers on Twitter and ‘kill’ his 60,000th troll.
Jack Marriott will score 20 League One goals.
Posh will be playing a 4-4-2 formation by the middle of September.
Grant McCann will sign a contract extension at Christmas. On January 2, Barry Fry will tell the media that Leo Da Silva Lopes and Lewis Freestone are worth £5 million apiece. England’s Test match selection policy remains in a muddle. It was great to see a County Championship journeyman like Toby Roland-Jones (above) claim eight wickets on his Test debut as South Africa were put to the sword, but he’ll be cannon fodder in Australia this winter unless he takes the cloud cover he enjoyed at the Oval with him. There remain serious doubts about Keaton Jennings, Gary Ballance, Dawid Malan (in fact any batsman in the top five apart from Alistair Cook and Joe Root), as well as the ability of chief off-spinner Moeen Ali to get wickets Down Under.
I’m not trying to downplay the excellenceof a likely win over South Africa , but only one Test series really matters and it starts at the end of November in Brisbane.
