    I really hope "Captain Kane" does not become a thing. Has been said about 4 times already

    Complaining relentlessly about the VAR even when it gets the decision right is already a tiresome theme and will no doubt continue.

    Martin Keown total garbage, contradicting his own opinions and as one-eyed as it was possible to be when looking at referee decisions.

    The BBC really have some impressively dreadful commentators, especially when you take radio into account.

    Terry Butcher was dire during the Senegal-Poland game earlier. Thought it was hilarious to purposefully mispronounce all the Senegalese players' names.

    In the half time of the Japan game we got to see Upson cooking, because **** knows what type of saddo would want half time to be dedicated to soccer

    The constant referring to Tunisia's penalty as 'controversial' is annoying me.

    Last time I checked, swinging an arm and catching your opponent in the face was a foul.

    "Swinging an arm" is a bit of a stretch, isn't it? He raised it with his back to the Tunisian chap and matey ran into it, with predictable amateur dramatics ensuing.

    It must look a smidge controversial in retrospect, what with Kane being twice wrestled to the floor with no penalty for either.

    Had the Spanish commentary team in English for the Columbia vs Japan game and it was a new low. Constantly raising your voice as if every pass is a wonder goal isn't needed. Referring to Japan as blue samurai constantly was bizarre and the overall tone of 2 blokes down the pub trying to describe a sport to someone with passing interest was woeful. Wtg USA

    ITV commentators talking out their holes about Guerrero's ban. Lee Dixon is a tosser.

    So sat at work and match is on in canteen and a guy got up and changed the commentary from the tv to radio 5 just because it was a woman doing it and he said women know nothing about football.

    Thoughts everyone?

    Yeah that's absolutely pathetic.

    Commentary is a great example of how 'old boys club' attitudes cause standards to slip. The fact that I don't remember being actively annoyed by Alex Scott already puts her in the top 25%.
