    A client of mine who rubs shoulders with sporting celebrities on a regular basis has met Lineker a number of times, and says he has shown himself to be a complete tosser on the majority of those occasions.

    Probably has his ego rubbed a lot or waffles on about his own views not listening to anyone .

    An utter tool Keown. As mentioned before ***** declared it was a deliberate handball, which Mongo then declared as an indisputable fact that it was not a handball.


    Keown takes himself so seriously, but everyone knows he's a *******.
    What an embarrassing non-story. Martin 'David Brent' Keown.
    Next week - Martin Keown on his male modelling days.
    Keown couldn't intimidate a packet of crisps.

    The only thing he can intimidate is a plastic surgeon.
    What an imbecile, how he gets a job on TV I can never understand.
    One look from Sir Alex and Keown would’ve dropped his guts. Tosser.
    He's like the coked up chav in the corner of the pub talking absolute ********.
    I could listen to Keown all day, but only after I’d ruptured my eardrums first, by ramming knitting needles into them.
    He's Billy Liar and Walter Mitty rolled into one. A legend in his own mind.
    Still can't believe I live in a world in which Martin Keown gets paid for his opinion.
    It's clear Martin Keown has no brains because the gap between his eyes and the top of his head is about 2 inches.

    Sure Gary Lineker loved showing the goals from the other night when taking to Dean Smith just now !

    Wonder if we had won or even draw would the game been discussed ?!
     
  5. If the BBC and Linekertart ever complain again that teams don't take the FA Cup seriously enough, remind them that tonight on their flagship FA Cup MOTD show they put out Gabby Logan, Karen Carney and Danny bloody Murphy.

    Not that I'm complaining about Logan. She is a vast improvement on big ears.

    The really weird thing was he can do interesting/compelling football journalism: his interview (in Spanish) with Maradona...

    Like the clubs they bring out the 2nd string for the highlights..

    Mind you on final score they managed to have three pundits all squashed together in the studio.

    They still turn up to FA Cup matchdays in full suit and tie, it seems really incongruous when the clubs don't even bother playing their best players for such an "occasion".

    Remember the FA Cup is all the BBC can afford to show live, so they have to make the most of it.

    I have just sat through 3 hours of the Sky Sports transfer window programme in order to avoid the Brexit "celebrations" nonsense. Not one mention of Brexit :) Bliss.

    btw who the hell is Jarrod Bowen? It sounds as though he is going to single handedly save WHU from the drop.
     
  11. wfc4ever

    Good goal scoring striker in the Championship in an average side.

    Might save them but then heard Moyes said he needs time to bed in etc and Haller who scored twice against us and joined as a highly rated striker seems to have gone to pot due to the way West Ham were playing.

    They do seem to spend a lot each transfer window - without much success!

    West Ham fans will be on Bowen's back if he doesn't score in 3 games given the price tag.

    Well we will be on 2nd at least as there are only 2 games next Saturday.

    Sure fire defeat then !

    Will the programme still be 90 minutes long? Great opportunity for the ‘experts’ to give a full in-depth analysis of Watford’s play, or maybe just learn the names of the players other than Deeney.

    Half an hour it seems so enough time to big up whoever wins and a 5 second clip on the losers.

    I also know someone who has worked alongside Lineker and she concurs entirely with the view of your client.
    In addition to this, a very good friend of mine is a writer/producer for the BBC. You can probably imagine how popular Gary “I’ll take my £1.75m salary and then pontificate about how the licence fee should be voluntary” Lineker is with the hundreds of BBC journalists waiting to hear whether or not they still have a job after the latest cuts.

    He (Lineker) is a massive bell end. Serious journalists could be losing their jobs and the BBC still seem intent and the other summarizers fortunes to pontificate meaningless ramblings on each game. The same applies to the news presenters. I watch the news and MOTD not because of who is presenting it but because of the content. Can the BBC brass not get that into their heads. These newsreaders seem to think they are incredibly special. Suzannah Reid for instance. It's a screwed up world where teachers, the medical profession, nurses, the emergency services etc etc get paid less than this lot.

    And by the way Greaves is the best striker England has ever produced. He didn't wait around in the box sniffing around the six yard line to knock the ball in.

    I’ve always thought that, if you’re a regular football fan, the pundits on MotD are very unlikely to tell you anything you don’t already know about the players, teams, managers, tactics etc. Therefore I prefer to record it and just watch the hour or so of the actual highlights and ignore the pundits. Their pontifications are surely only relevant to occasional football watchers, perhaps tuning in to an England World Cup match, or a Cup Final, who are not likely to be watching MotD each week.

    Well we might all be tuning into Quest at 9pm each Saturday with Colin Murray and his gags.

    Ian Holloway is usually on that too..

    I was scrolling through the forum to avoid reading about the next stage of Brexit amd now you've gone and ruined it for me, Crabs.

    I'm fully aware of that. Upped sticks to ITV for more money. Such unique skills are irreplaceable.

    Blimey - they did well to get Pearson to do a "live interview " after that.

    A particularly Z-list edition of everyones favourite football show, jugs must be on a well earned winter break from flogging crisps.
    Clinton Morrison called Mariappa "a brilliant defender". How did NP not burst out laughing.
     
  24. I'm gonna watch this pile of dung tonight for the first time this season.

    I don't even care ol' jugears will spend 30 seconds on the game and 5 minutes on why Liverpool lost rather than why we won.

    I'm gonna watch it just to see that smug knobhead cockface have to say Watford 3, Liverpool 0,and I'm gonna love every bloody glorious second of it.

    TBF he has given us credit here.

    Mind you he is ex Everton so probably not a fan of Liverpool either.

    Alan Shearer and Jenas pundits - Shearer will probably be in glowing praise for us compared to his Newcastle lot!

    No mention or analysis on MOTD of the GBH by that nasty big Dutchman. Deliberately pushed him and it was an unpunished foul.
    Deulofeu probably out for the season.

    Covid-19 is much worse for humanity than ever thought possible.

    MOTD replaced in the BBC 1 schedule by Mrs Brown’s Boys Live tonight. I just hope I contract the disease and die before 10.30pm.

    As much as Lineker irritates me, that’s an absolute travesty. Couldn’t we have some classic MotD from the archives?

    I genuinely thought it was a joke when I saw this. Surely there was something in the archives better than that. I'd rather watch the Test Card

    What did he say ?

    Jammy Dawson ?
     
  33. Smudger

    Wright correctly picking out Hughes for praise. He really has blossomed in that central midfield role. Lightweight ? Ineffectual ? He was a tiger again in that role. And he can create. He has not lost the ability to pass. Or venture into shooting range. It was absurd Chilwell was MOTM.

    Hughes or Dawson. Chilwell is decent but overrated. Taken to the cleaners by Sarr several times.

    TBF On BT sport the commentator did change his MOTM to Dawson...
     
  35. It's getting worse. I'm used to us being shown last but last night our game didn't even get a mention. Only reason I can think of is that it was a Friday fixture and as its "little old Watford", no one noticed. Or Lineker is still so upset about our sacking of Pearson after leading us to safety with those wins over Naaaarch, and Newcastle.
