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.
To be honest, it's that podcast that I'm basing my dislike of him on. I just find him so smug. The only bit of that podcast I really like is when Sid Lowe comes on. The rest of it just seems to be Richardson trying to appear as uninterested as possible. Like I say, maybe it's just me. There's certainly no doubting he knows his stuff and he's a million times less annoying than that Gab Marcotti on the Times podcast. The only podcast I really like these days is The Football Ramble.
