    Yeah this is basically what they were playing on. I mean, it's fair enough if he said "I don't agree with his tactics on this occasion" or whatever, but he was just putting the boot into him as a manager in general. And like Sven or not, he's a hell of a lot more successful/qualified than Gareth bloody Southgate. Go back to being in the pizza hut adverts you penalty missing ****.

    Yeah, Southgate was a git this afternoon, Svens tactic's were decent in that match. he made that IDS comment about Sven, when he still could of been picked for England. So he put selling a few more books of his crummy auto-biography over playing for his country.

    ****e manager, ****e player, ****e anaylst, get rid.

    When you're getting paid to commentate at a World Cup, is it really too much to ask that you do a little bit of research into the teams you're going to be commentating on?

    Given he's an English football manager, you'd expect him to know about a player who has played for Man Utd AND Chelsea ffs.

    ITV definitely worse - Red Clive and Jim Beglin the worst but the likes of "crazy" Marcel just compound the problem.

    To be honest, I like McCarthy, think most of what he says isn't meant to be taken seriously - just need to get his sense of humour.

    Rather listen to Andy Townsend than McCarthy tbh. Annoying **** in every aspect.

    ****, I'd rather listen to Garth Crooks interview Andy Townsend than McCarthy commentary.

    I don't think he's joking. I think he just really is that stupid.

    Personally, I don't mind any of the above analysts and commies....

    I just can't stand Motson and Lawrenson, so anything that keeps them out of sight is a good thing in my eyes.

    Motson is dreadful I agree. Lawrenson isn't exactly great either, but I don't have a huge problem with him.

    Scaly to jump in with the deft analogy.
