    The more i listen to Martin O’Neill, the more i wish we had gone for a “foreign” coach as Sven’s replacement.

    Wrightey is an embarrasement.

    I’m so sick and tired of the build-up and half time of every single match that I’ve stopped watching them altogether. It’s a shame, because when Martin O’Neill is on, he’s always been worth listening to. They have 15 minutes for each one, 5 of which seem to be given over to a perfuctory look at the teams we’re actually going to be watching before a good 10 minutes of repetitive discussion about England’s hopes. Even though they’re not in the same fucking group, or likely to play either team at all. Bah.

    That rant aside, I must say I DO like the BBC’s “inferior” game commentators of Steve Wilson and Simon Brotherton. They seem to be out of the old school, and that’s fine by me. I also like Gavin Peacock as a co-commentator, although his beard is beyond belief.
