Can't stand Le Tissier or Thompson, so pleased about this. Would be good if they could bring in someone who knows more about life outside the top flight. 

 

I'm not a fan of those two either but to be fair to knowing more about life outside the top flight, the studio panel only really cover the PL matches so it makes sense that their knowledge base/experience is on the top flight. Whenever it is an international break they often trot out the 'reserve team' of pundits.

Le Tissier trending on twitter with Nazi's, Holocaust and Anne Frank. Just a standard Friday for Matt.

 

Do you think he is deliberately obtuse to get attention, genuinely a bit thick or a little of both?

Having made a wonderful career as a striker and then a decent one as a pundit, Le Tissier is hoping to compete with David Icke in the position of reyt-twát

So hard to tell mate. He seems to be having some kind of breakdown. I watched a video he did which was supposed to an apology  and then he started talking about how he did on his round of golf earlier in the day

I'm not as disappointed about this as I was when this first broke, I think I only was due to nostalgia of Soccer Saturday drinking games when I was at university. I think it makes sense, the show has been the same for many years and could do with a shake up.

 

In the past 5 years I've barely watched the show as I've been at matches or watched streams of games when I haven't, and I imagine many others have with streams, and it's as easy to follow scores on your phone now as on the telly, so viewing figures are probably down significantly on what they once were. Is that to do with the pundits? No, I doubt it, but I suppose it will freshen it up.

Good grief.

 

I mean, we can sit there and question a transfer fee, but to sit there and be so dismissive of a player who was probably 23 - 24 years of age at the time and was tearing up the Bundesliga? 

 

I could almost guarantee you that neither Thompson or Merson in particular would have watched De Bruyne playing for Wolfsburg. 

 

The guy is not only the best player in the PL, but he would walk into any side on the planet.

 

Unfortunately, cause these ex pundits played the game, many feel they don't have to do the research, cause they *know* the game. At least with the likes of Neville and Carragher etc.,they'll do some actual research.

Exactly right.

 

Give me a well informed lower league / non-pro player over their terrible opinions.

Wonderful 

 

 

 

Good move by Sky - put the likes of these 2 on for a week or two and everyone will be delighted when they are replaced by the likes of Sue Smith and Clinton Morrison!
