TV Coverage and the Commentators We Love to Hate.

I have thoroughly enjoyed McCoist's chat this WC, almost as much as I have hated Lawrenson's.

I've noticed other commentators trying (and failing) to 'Ally up' their chat. There's quite a movement, not just from John & Jane Q Tweeter, but from some inside itv sport to have Champion & McCoist call the final.

Do ITS/STV have the final? So it definitely won't be Lawrenson? Brilliant.

Both BBC & ITV/STV show the final. Guy Mowbray and whoever versus Clive Tyldesley & whoever.

Depending on Wimbledon, you should be able to press red and go no comms on the bbc.

Can you imagine Tyldesley if England got to final? :15:

Mark Lawrenceson should be made to watch reruns of VAR decisions ad infinitum with fans chanting White Stripes playing on a continuous loop a la Clockwork Orange!

Unless the current heatwave turns to a flood and washes out week one, there won't be any tennis on the day of the final.

Finals day is the 15th of July. Same as the world cup

Wish they'd stop pronouncing it Jackson Ur-vine

There are a few that do. John Irvine from ITN has a hard Vine. Maybe we were saying Jackson's name wrongly...

My pet hate is commentators and pundits who refer to the “woodwork”. 

When was there last wooden goalposts FFS?!

It was always a stupid synonym anyway. 

 

I had a mate at school who was convinced that the woodwork only related to the join of crossbar and post, i.e. where the “carpentry” had taken place.....O.o

Reshmin Chowdhury deserves more exposure imo. Doing the Croatia game tonight.

She does (or did, depending on they re-up the contracts) the Lakeside darts.

I’d rather watch England win the World Cup, with commentary from Motson, Tyldesley and Lawrenson, than watch darts.

Regretful bout of laddishness in this thread - bad thing itself and detracts from the main point at issue namely what a god-awful pundit Glen Hoddle is. Last night his state the bleeding obvious comments (bit too close to the keeper etc) managed to miss the bleeding obvious point that no one wanted to win. Problem remains that Glen cannot deviate from repeating precisely what we have all just seen in case he reveals his true identity i.e barking mad. I caught a bit of Carry on Spying the other day. Bernard Cribbins was undercover as a Turkish belly dancer. Poor Glen trying to pass as normal in the land of the sane is an even greater stretch.

"Di Maria doesn’t look right, he’s not himself”. Five minutes later... "goal of the World Cup so far"!

Danny Murphy on the quality of Di Maria O.o his monotone rambling gets right on ma titties!

Decent comment from Shearer on BBC site today. "Plotting our route to the semi-finals ? How can we be so arrogant ?"

Years of practice.

I like it when native Spanish speakers say Uruguay. Is much better than the English translation.

To be fair Di Maria had a terrible tournament. He had 10-15 minutes after his goal but other than that he was a big disappointment.
