TBF would YOU like to be the one to tell Duncan Ferguson he's out of a job?

 

When Ancelotti went back to Real Madrid, apparently he offered Duncan Ferguson a job in his backroom staff.  Can you imagine that?  Big Dunc at the Bernabeu, threatening to rip Vinicius Jr's head off?  It would have been glorious.

He needs someone to deal with Sergio Ramos :)

[Other things too], but it genuinely annoys me rich people buy the paintings of the greatest artists of the 20th century to put them on their private yachts to occassionly look at and show off to their cunt mates. To have $1 billions worth is taking the piss. This when Spurs gave a 20% pay cut to 550 staff last March. Anyone says this I'm likely to roll my eyes and think; well of course grossly rich self entitled people do gross self entitled rich things. I despise the mega rich existing and despise those in government with power allowing them. I would say i want their boats to sink with them trapped inside but i can't with all those paintings on them.

 

Joe Lewis sold David Hockney's Portrait of an Artist Pool with Two Figures for $90m 3 years ago. He owned a David Hockney of that status and calibre.

They’re all shite, unfunny, and have no depth of knowledge, he’s just louder about it. 


He doesn’t have much in the way of interesting analysis but if you can’t at least crack a smile at some of his interplay with Keane then maybe the sweet embrace of death is the next step for you.

I did like seeing Keane rip Jamie Redknapp appart a few weeks back.

 

I generally hate the way mainstream football analysis is these days, you might be right that they have funny moments, but that's not really what they should be there for.

If you think Micah Richards is bad analysing football you should seem him in full on 'bantz' mode with Carragher on Celebrity Gogglebox. It's not often the phrase 'oh good Giles Brandreth' has popped into my head but it did last week.

I quite like Micah Richards.

 

We're miles away from those painful days of Adrian fucking Chiles in the same studio as Glenn fucking Hoddle.  With the former wearing fucking shorts.

 

I'd rather shit in my hands and clap than have to suffer those two absolute morons.

Absolute no-mark footballer

 

Who played at the highest level for ~12 years and got capped by England 21 times...

 

Personally I quite like him.

I watched that last week and how the buggery doies Jamie Carragher not know what a Jurassic Park is?

 

I really do not get Gogglebox.

I've been enjoying the MOTD Top Tens  - I prefer Wright to Richards, but I like the banter/piss taking between him, Shearer and Linkeker and Richards being younger works quite well as he asks questions of the other two to explain some of the more historic stuff for the younger generations.

 

He was 4 when Lineker was being subbed against Sweden in Euro 92.

Me too, he’s articulate - something an awful lot of pundits aren’t these days and comes across as a fairly intelligent guy.

 

He wasn’t a bad footballer either, while he never quite fulfilled his early potential, calling him a no-mark footballer is pretty disrespectful.

Sorry I’m not having this. Gogglebox is genuinely one of the best shows on TV. Celebrity gogglebox is nowhere good as normal gogglebox though, granted.

I genuinely thought Carragher and Richards were one of the best things on Celebrity Gogglebox last week. They had genuine chemistry with each other (since they're colleagues) and they're still fairly normal people so have a more relatable approach than some celebrities.

Jermaine Jenas is the worst. Absolute no-mark footballer who somehow became the face of BBC football. Like being lectured to by a Top Man shop assistant who allegedly had trials with Stevenage in 2002.

Next time he’s on, just listen to the amount of times he paraphrases the answers everyone else makes. It’s infuriating. He adds so little insight, just parrots others. 
 

I’d far prefer it if they went for a couple of ex-footballers and someone like Michael Cox or Jonathan Wilson. 
 

Maybe it’s a generational things and Jenas’ analysis is more directed at a younger audience - his MOTDX persona seems ideal for that format, less so for an analytical role. 
 

Nonetheless, has been good to see a lot of fresh blood in recent years. Different sport, but Ebony Rainford-Brent has been superb on the cricket in recent years. Hope she becomes a key figure on TMS.

I like Jermaine Jenas on 5 live on a Friday with Darren Fletcher because he's so angry and short to everything Fletcher says it's sort of interesting for that alone. Don’t know if anyone has noticed. It'd go like, Fletcher; 'Kane says he wants to leave then?' and Jenas will snap; 'it doesn't matter what he wants he has a contract!', but more angry than I'm making that sound. It is genuinely tetchy like he hates Fletcher and resents the decent talking points that are brought up. 

 

I think he was chirpier when he first became a pundit, i just assume that he gets fed up of being contracted to appear late at night probably more often that he'd want. Maybe we'll see Micah go the same way, from someone who laughs his head off every few seconds (which was endearing and infectious but does get a bit annoying) to being surly and combative. 

 

I like the rapport of the espn guys, and i liked Barney Ronay and Barry Glendenning recently.

The European Football Show on BT Sport a few years ago with what is now the Totally Football Show European Edition line up of Jimbo, Honegstein, Laurents and James Horncastle was great and preferable to their Premier League coverage which is filled with a load of ex Liverpool and Man Utd players who offer no insight or analysis at all. It's to Micah Richards credit he's managed to get a job as a pundit having never played for those two clubs.

The coverage of the World Cup/Euros on the BBC/ITV will never be like this as it’s aimed at the broadest possible audience. Of course we’d prefer it but they’d never go in that direction.
