Wow. We play like that and you’re bringing pundit gender to the table?
Sweet fucking baby jebus BN.
She’s no less an expert than those she was sitting alongside. Why does she need to have played in the Premier League (or have played at all) to be considered an expert in it? Despite all the shite Sky try shoving down our throats there really is nothing unique about it.
There are examples of former professionals who are very good as pundits. But there are far more who are awful. It would be good if they opened the whole thing up. If it was less of an old boys’ club I wouldn’t have to endure Jamie Redknapp and Thierry Henry every Sunday afternoon.
Some of the more intelligent journalists in place of the ex-pros would be a start.
Just played Puel 'interview bingo' and didn't quite make the full house. Only four out of five.
fantastic (when winning) difficult (when losing)
Just woke up from me nap - not missed anything, have I ?
On the subject of pundits. Redknapp saying nothing could be done about their second....I'm pretty sure Maguire could have tried a bit more for a start.
I know right?
I hear they’re even allowed to vote now. Ridiculous.
Give the guy a break BN, English is not his first language and so he has a limited vocabulary.
I'd be happy if he just spoke up a bit!
Jamie Redknapp is thick as pigshit.
The world's gone mad. I saw one with ankles showing the other day.
Redknapp has over 300 Premier League appearances. Given has over 400. They may or may not spout shite but they are on the panel because they've been there, done it. Steph Houghton plays for Man City ladies team. By all means ask for her expertise on women's football, but she knows feck all about the Premier League and that's what she's being asked about.
It's tokenism. She isn't there on merit. And my point remains, why not have a token gay, muslim or disabled footballer on there instead / as well? What's the difference?
Sounds like a joke. A Bernard Manning one perhaps.
They'll have black people on next, the complete bastards
Political correctness gone mad....
So you would also object to Lionel Messi being on the panel?
BN, the 1960’s called. It wants its post back.
You're hopefully deliberately missing my point entirely.
I would agree that there are too few black pundits.
On the plus side, The Guardian home page still has the score as 4 - 1.
When was the last time we had a decent dwarf on the TV?
I remember a programme about a communist one, that was rather good.
Well, it was at first, it went off a bit after a few series.
Homer regularly watches indecent dwarves on his TV.
I refuse to believe that you can both be that dense. My point is about mis-placed diversity and tokenism. If they'd put a member of the Man City disabled team on the panel, would that have been relevant too?
I also think the decision to give Phil Neville the England job a disgrace. There are plenty of better qualified women that should have got the job ahead of him.
