Don't mind Robbie Savage, comes across as more of a punter...

Agreed, and he's a bit daft too which is funny.

Savage is fine - says it as he sees it. Liked him arguing with Henry that French player should have been sent off (correct) and Henry's bias saying he shouldn't.

 

Strachan of course is always great to listen to and Shearer gets it spot on a lot of the time as well. Ian Wright though is the biggest fud since the year dot.

While cannavaro is a World Cup winner, and I don't doubt his knowledge of the game, I'm not sure his English is of a high enough standard to be a pundit on British tv.

Aye. I think he's just a bit nervous about speaking in his 2nd or 3rd language with the cameras there, as he sounds quite fluent then seems to forget the word he's looking for. Hope his confidence increases as the tournament goes on.

I wouldn't want to be the person who told him that though!

Robbie Savage, Andy Gray and Alan Green are a trio of wänks. All three have referred to England as "we" and "us" during games.

Tony Pulis was at it on 5Live last night too... 


Administrators Duff and Phelps then negotiated a sale of assets to a consortium led by Charles Green for £5.5m.
He has since formed a new club, now playing in the Scottish Football League Third Division.

leonardo was good in previous tournaments, pity couldnt have got him again, suppose he will be in demand being in Brazil

 

i have no doubt cannavaro would offer some excellent insight if he could express himself a bit better, as it is, its all a bit pigeon.  better than i could do in italian mind u!


how do you know which cows on holiday? the one with the wee calf

You learn something useless everyday. I always assumed he was English.

Aye, his English isn't terrible, but he probably can't fully articulate the point he'd like to make due to his limitations, whereas some of the others don't have anything particularly interesting to say in the 1st place.

Neil Lennon, despite physically looking uncomfortable in front of the camera speaks reasonably well.

If he was playing. How many goals would andy townsend have scored in the opening week? Every time someone misses, he comments on it in a "i would have scored that voice"

Strachan is brilliant to listen to. Very intelligent and you can see why he's been able to turn us around.
