I must be the only person who really doesn't like James Richardson. He was great in the 80s on that Football Italia programme but since then I've started to find him insufferably smug. It must be me though, cos everyone I know seems to think he's great.
And yeah, the BBC should break the bank and poach Gary Neville from Sky. Best pundit by a long way.
ITV needs a major shake up, too. How Andy Townsend is still allowed to commentate is a total mystery to me. Is he even capable of saying a sentence without mentioning a player's "engine"? Useless cunt.
Do you listen to the Guardian's football weekly podcast? Richardson's great on that, gives everyone else ample time to speak and chimes in when a subject he knows alot about (i.e. Serie A) comes up.
Savage on Five Live is dreadful, the worst of the worst. He never discusses tactics because he doesnt understand them, he uses the "Ive been a player so i know" arguement whenever someone disagrees with him (see this weeks 606) and he loves the sound of his own voice. He's the absolute bottom of the barrel.
