I don't mean to be picky or belittle his achievements but its 1 in every 10 games. Nearly 1 in every 10.5. He's pretty much Sunday league quality

It's the fact he brought a big fuck off speaker before the game, and strutting his stuff before a ball had even been kicked. More interested in the after party... reminded me of Gattuso touching the cup before the game when in Istanbul. Jinxed it.

Probably why he cried so much after the game, probably spent 2 days on the playlist, the silly meff. Feel a bit sorry for him tbh, I bet he regrets his and his dad's decision to go all out for the wonga wonga and move to Sheik football club. Then he tries to go back, they can't afford him, then he gets to the final and fucks it. I think it was at that moment he realised what a complete tosser he's been and how his greedy antics and shite lifestyle/career choices have come back to haunt him. Wouldn't get the Bayern players allowing that!

Like Neuer said in the interview on German DAZN after the game, when asked whether they would celebrate proper tonight and he was "Yea, probably, I'm sure the club have figured something out." Top pro. Get the game won first, then think about the party.

Thought for a moment that he wasn't going to go up for his silver medal. Sat on the bench like a pleb crying. One of the suits had to tell him that he was making the club look bad....

If i was a Bayern fan, then i'd have been cheesed off with Alaba as well - spent way to long consoling Neymar. A good 3 or 4 minutes hugging it out with him. You've just won the Champions League ya dope - give him a fist pump, say "better luck next year", and go celebrate with your team mates. No fuckin way would Neymar be doing the same if PSG had won.

Tuchel is a bit of an arsehole as well. His antics on the bench are ridiculous. Think he might be a good fit for United when they sack Ole next spring.

I thought they were all great together, they are part and parcel of the show & it might put me off watching it from now on in depending on who comes in for them. The replies are probably correct about who will replace them. I wonder what the viewing % is off women who watch Soccer Saturday? Copying BT's politically correct panel I would imagine.

Other than Jeff Stelling, who seems like a pro broadcaster. I always find the ‘bantz’ on Soccer Saturday excruciating to the point of being almost unbearable.

I am fairly sure the format can handle some diversity and new blood.

They are all fucking shit, completely incoherent and bereft of any insight.

Thommo can't even finish a sentence, ever.

"And he's come there, it looks like he's just gonna.......the shot......it's half blocked and he.....but then it comes back in, shot, and you think.....maybe save it......but just as.......and it's there, it's a goal, it's one one, not really been..... but.....it's there, what a game"

Compared to other sports - cricket, NFL, NBA - the quality of punditry and analysis in football is dogshit. Even the best of them, there is hardly any genuine insight provided which intelligent fans cannot guess.

In cricket and NFL, sometimes you have ex players and coaches providing quality insights on the tactics, the way the game is developing, the pitch, the seam, strategy - nothing even close to that in football.

That entire setup needs a reboot given the money spent.

I thought the Twitter comments on the Sky Sports sackings was scraping the bottom of the intellectual barrel until I noticed the David Icke was trending. Some of the stuff in there is so awful it makes me want to scratch out my own eyes

Used to love Soccer Saturday as a kid but its stale as fuck now. Hardly bothered with it for 10 years. Its more aimed at Saturday lads down the pub putting a few bets with a bit of banter than any serious football punditry. Was an article about Carra/Nev doing MNF, they come in 8/9am do their analysis, off to the gym for a work out, come back and have some chicken salad or something. Eating and training like pros and putting the graft in to the make the best it can be. Soccer Saturday lads get leathered in the hotel on the Friday, hiding burger and chips, cans of coke behind the desk for ad breaks.

Its needed moving on for a while, its a shame the connection has been made to BLM this year but it was long overdue. Skys second string for the show are all shit so hopefully none of them get it and I think Alex Scott/Micah Richards would be wise to stick to match specific analysis than get involved. I think they will pull off some fairly big names though. Crouch/Bellamy would be the obvious LFC personalities.

As much as he's a massive cunt, I thought Andy Gray was enjoyable back in the day. He actually spoke about the game through a player's eyes and explained why the game was developing as it did.

Yeah I may be in the minority but thought Gray was probably one of the better pundits in recent years. He actually analyses the game for a start.

Pity he's a bit of a dick behind the scenes.

The other knuckle-dragger (whose name escapes me) that he was always joined at the hip with is a proper bellend though.

In fairness it's a really odd format 3 or 4 guys trying to outshout one another often pretending that the game they are watching is more exciting that the others Not really sure what they will replace it with but it does need replacing

I never understood the whole thing anyway. Why would you be watching three old men yelling at their screens describing the game (poorly) when you could just watch the game yourself or listen to it properly on the radio??

I guess its just a remnant of sorts. Couldn't televise the games via traditional broadcasting on a Saturday so Sky needed to fill their programming to sell their ware.
Thought it stopped being relevant a looonnngg time back, and I've not watched it in donkeys, so I've no idea who the guests do be other than when stations are being flicked through, but it always seemed to be a variation on Champagne Charlie, Idiot Merson and Thommo it seems, so any change from that would be at least now be something that they can promote as fresh.

Not that I'd be tuning in for the likes of Alex Scott or Micah Richard's vapid 'punditry' if that is indeed the sort of irregular studio guests that would be installed on said panel. Find them awful in their gigs up to now, offering next to no insight or criticism (especially Scott) so if they were bringing the same to a similar format......well, they won't be losing a viewer, because they wouldn't be gaining one in the first place.

Maybe just have a Football League show for a couple hours whereby they bounce around on-site reporters (do they even still do that ?), or run commentary, PL match selectable, with no show at all. I'd take the latter, but I'm sure there'd be some rights crap involved.
Never normally an issue finding our games televised in some format in any case - BT, Sky, Premier Sports (not to mention the dodgier methods).

Revista De La Liga was one of Sky Sports' best football programming IMO. From the intro, to the guests (who knew what they were talking about), the studio, and even the commentary was alright. Scott Minto does come across as a bit bland though. Not seen him much after that show, and it's been a good number of years. (he was worse than the original presenter they had).

I guess when it started it was for the Saturday 3pm kick offs that weren't (aren't) shown on TV in the UK. when there is a full schedule of fixtures (7 PL fixtures and a load of EFL fixtures), and limited national radio stations only one or two games it made sense.

But as more and more fixtures have moved to different times for TV (and the Saturday 3pm kick offs are now usually they are the games very few people want to watch), there are other options the format no longer makes much sense.

Edit: Just seen McDermotX said the same thing

What's the deal with televised games for this coming season given that there are going to be no fans? Are we going back to the normal game coverage (i.e. most games not being shown) or are they going to continue with the enhanced TV scheduling?
