    I’m not sure people do want all the tactical discussion. It always feels like they’re explaining things to people who only have a passing interest in football and certainly never go to games. But are these really the main audience for MOTD? I think most fans watching know as much about tactics as the vast majority of the ‘expert pundits’. Thank God for ‘fast forward’.

    The instrumental bit on a 20 sec loop.

    I think they would want the in depth analysis more if it was done by someone with a far greater knowledge than a Martin Keown or Paul Ince to name but two. It's laughable that failed managers or ex players who have never managed even talk about proven manager's tactics. Be ok if they had great personalities and offered something different but they don't. Mark Lawrenson is the best as he offers sleep in between games and you wake up when you hear the crowd noise each time.

    They could do so much better with the format if they moved with the times a bit too

    Awwwww just watched Motd this morning and they did the switch and got us last. With all Saturday's games now old hat they could have gone the other way with the Friday ones but went t'other. Get in!

    Am starting to see the funny side even if the chant "Still to come Watford till I die" is a bit of a mouthful

    Used to love that for FA Cup roundups. Life of Riley and each match introduced by sketches of the kits the teams were wearing.

    Predictable but only got ourselves to blame.

    We would only have been last had we won 5-0.

    Pretty sure Wrighty has just called the Palarse manager Roy Orbison.

    That @rse Lineker didn’t even show our match.

    I missed the score but presume a handsome home win for the Hornets.

    Liverpool were on 2nd last week after a 0-0 so we should be on before them this week!

    I was hoping the Rookery folk would be singing "Are You Watching Lineker" During the time we were winning, and especially when our Andre got the winner.

    Should have sung "you're getting sacked in the morning" to Rodgers. I hear Conte was at the game, and is being lined up as his replacement.

    Running order is:- Liverpool v Everton, Chelsea v Fulham, all the goals from yesterday's games then Watford v Leicester after the final credits.

    To be fair I'm not normally one for bashing MOTD about punditry, but Murphy right now praising Leicester to the heavens despite them losing. We really are deemed irrelevant aren't we.

    After Jenas spent ages praising Doucoure and Capoue for being solid and protecting us well etc.

    Well I thought they did until getting booked then Leicester could gain more control but generally until the end Foster wasn't really tested .

    The passing and crossing from both sides was a bit scrappy .

    BTW credit to Rodgers for not making too much of the decisions in the 1st half when the interview guy tried to get a comment out of him .

    My favourite part was the reporter interviewing Brenda and saying they didn't get the rub of the green with decisions lmao

    Poor old Brenda. Leicester only got 67 dodgy freekick decisions and they paid for 100. He must have felt a bit annoyed about that.

  27. Would it be more simple for presenters if Etienne changed his name to Capoué?

    Or if we can get him Canonized he would be known as Saint Etienne.

    Slightly odd that half the pundits call him that when, I suspect, they don’t have one O level French between them.

    One more reason we need the glorious Thierry back.

    To be fair, when one interviewer tried to lead him by the nose to suggest Mapps should have seen red rather than yellow for the challenge on Vardy, Rodgers batted it away by saying he thought Mapps had got a touch on the ball...which he did.

    With Rodgers, he's always very generous with his comments. This wins a lot of admirers. But I think he's a bit Machiavellian. You have to judge him on his actions rather than his words.

    But only if he would dress-up properly for the role:

    I believe he had an iPad setup on a tripod in the dugout to watch the replays/live feed which was a new one on me.
