    Tranmere fan though. And former player, albeit one game.

    Well, since we're using Tranmere affiliation as criteria for assessing the quality of pundits...there's another ESPN one worth a mention...

    I did not know that.

    Always assumed he was just a BBC regional hack who'd got jammy.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Yeah he played for us against Man U in the League Cup. Think we lost 5-0. Before I was born.

    Personally I wish sky were allowed to show some games; not exclusively but it'd be nice to have the choice.

    The good news is ESPN have none. Their choice of pundit is...well.
    There's actually nothing to stop Sky winning rights for the coverage - I'm assuming the reason Sky don't have any rights is because from their point of view there's no point bidding for something that would still have to be available on FTA.

    Mark Lawrenson, Republic of Ireland international, slates Podolski for playing for Germany.

    Sooner major tournaments get taken away from FTA the better.

    Probably mistook the Irish team for the England B team tbh, pretty sure that's how every Englishman thinks of it.

    I didn't even hear that, but I try to switch off when Lawrenson talks.

    Must the campest man ever to play centre half for Liverpool.

    I missed it too. Would be hypocrisy of quite a high magnitude tho given Lawrenson was born and raised in Preston and Podolski (from memory) moved to Germany at something like three.
