[Archived] Most Annoying Football Pundit


Recommended Posts

One of the downsides of the increase of TV football coverage is the increase in numbers of football pundits. I would expect there to a union for them there are so many these days....but by far the most annoying of all pundits has got to be Ally McCoist, followed by Andy Townsend, followed by any other ITV pundit.

any suggestion?

Fat sam is on itv4 doing the Barca game. No doubt he's touted himself for England job again!

As a commentator I can't stand Clive Tyldesley. He's always on about how the other team are cheating when he's doing these European games. He also demands a booking for every foul against the team he wants to win and yet comdemns players for demanding bookings.....arse.

ITV basically assume that the viewers are too ignorant to decide who they want to win a game so have to be influenced by an incredibly biased commentary.

John Motson and Lawro when they're together. Absolute drivel. I end up sticking Radio 5 on.

Unfortunately that can end up worse, Green and co tend to dwell upon an incident and try their upmost to sensationalise it at the expense of the listener knowing wtf is happening with the game! wink.gif

Andy Gray is one of the best and has also stuck up for Rovers when need be. Amazed to hear people don't rate him, similarly Martin Tyler. Charlie Nicholas is another who knows his stuff.

Steve Claridge is one of the least informed of the pundits. Seems to have a dislike for us as well, almost as bad as Rodney Marsh was in that respect. Lawro is an idiot but we kind of expect that by now, along with his atrocious jokes and Lineker's dodgy puns.' I'll go for Phil Thompson however as the biggest twerp on the telly. As for commentators...Jonathon Pearce's style just seems to be to talk up every incident as if it is of global importance rather than just a throw-in to West Ham or a goal-kick to Bolton. Just doesn't work on the TV, unlike the radio as I used to like him when he just commentated on games for Capital Gold in the London area.

Bwahahahahahahaha. Dear me.

My personal dislikes include John "didn't he?" Motson and Alan Smith. Someone on here made an excellent point about him recently - he makes up his mind on something after 5 minutes and then spends the rest of the match championing it, even when the evidence in front of his very eyes contradicts it.

Rob McLean who presents on Setanta (used to do the commentary on the Scottish Sportscene) is an utter nightmare to listen to.

"And....that flag from the assistant.....indicates.....that the forward was....offside." Stop speaking in staccatto you irritating git! mad.gif

"Welsby has become something of the forgotton man of television sports coverage, although he has recently been seen presenting Crown Green Bowls for Sky Sports.

He is currently also touring the country with Ricky Tomlinson in the theatre tour, An Evening with Ricky Tomlinson, where he interviews Tomlinson in- character as Jim Royle"
