McManaman is horrendous. Spent about 2 minutes criticising Alisson for a bit of play that started a move we had a good attack from.

I feel sorry for those neutrals/Barca fans who have to endure his commentary on whatever feed he is on when the 2nd leg is played at the Camp Nou - it'll be May 1999 all fucking night. Mind you, the home leg will be as bad with references to Paris and Barcelona 1999

He definitely doesn't hate us. Every time we score you can hear him celebrating in the background, which just about sums him up. He does love a moan though.

I'm still saying Andy Hinchcliffe is the worst. An incredibly average footballer who criticises everything like he was the hybrid of Maldini and Messi. Constantly chats utter shit too. Plus he seems to commentate on at least one game every day.

Gambling is a horrible addiction too, so many ways to gamble with internet, you don't have to go to a betting shop/casino, then your watching TV then a betting/casino advert comes on that can make things even more tempting, gambling adverts should be banned, then there's those fixed odds betting terminals, someone like Merson, it won't be placing £15-£20 bets, it'll be in the hundreds, maybe thousands.

He said last night the first time he got paid at Arsenal, £100, he went in the bookies - lost the lot in 15 minutes.

Online betting has made it simple for the likes of me, who bet very occasionally and in samll amounts, to place a bet there and then, sometimes I'll do the next 2 minutes what will happen just for a bit of fun, but for an addict, it's like sticking an alcoholic in a drinks warehouse.

Danny Mills.

He really hates us and i think it's because we pipped Leeds to that CL spot  in the treble cup season that fucked the club up as Peter Ridsdale had mortgaged the Leeds up to the eyeballs and they were dependent on CL revenues, once they lost that spot the club went into financial meltdown.

Indeed, i do like a bet myself but i normally put £5 mostly Saturday 3pm EFL matches[often both teams to score], that's nothing to an addict.

 Didn't Merson say he was 16 when he got first first £100 paycheck from Arsenal, which would have been mid 80s & in those days £100 was a lot of money, i wouldn't know what to do with £100 a week if i was on that, when i was 16, he even said he couldn't lose all the money he has lost gambling if he was a coke addict instead

Can't stand him, I have mentioned it on here before but people need reminding of the 2001 incident at Anfield involving him.

Liverpool player down, looked bad. Every player stopped on both teams and motioned Mills to put the ball out, he pretended to, then fucked off on a run towards our penalty area!

Danny Mills is a bellend. Was it him that wanted Klopp banned/arrested and all sorts when he ran on the pitch vs Everton?

Tyler is obviously a massive prick too. He absolutely despises Liverpool and you can hear the desperation in his voice for something to go wrong.

Sam Matterface is another that I can't stand. Typical smug, Tory boy whose arrogance comes through quite clearly when he's commentating.

Its everywhere now, its an epidemic. A huge problem in this day and age when its a) so accessible and 2) everyone is getting squeezed for every last penny and see a quick few pound
You know what I find disgraceful, it will get chalked up as nothing or a coincidence or whatever, but a quick search on Merson and I found a clip of him talking on the show about being back gambling - but before the video started there was an advertisement for William Hill.

If Sky had any decency they’d move him away from anything to do with SkyBet or the Super 6 stuff.

I think they're thinking of making it illegal to show betting adverts on tv before 9pm aren't they?

They have to, they have a duty to really, it might not stop him but at least it's not splashed all over their site him with a gambling link beside him. But then, Sky and Decency don't really go and in hand. They should really take him away from the predictions thing. I know it may seem innocent, but they give the odds next to his prediction, and for a gambler, for one or a few of them to come in and him not to have a bet on it, just fuels it.

is it just the feminine voice? i dont know, i dont think it is, if that was a dude with a high voice i'd hate it as much im sure and i've seen chicks as pundits on tv (world cup black chick i recall) and listening to her talk about the game was fine, she didnt have a grating voice and knew what she was on about

but yeah, whatever the reason, i fucking hate those whinny voices as soon as they chime up to the point now im kinda 'fuck this, i can't watch this shit' and off it goes

and

leon osman was pretty shite on motd the other day, if he wants a career in that shit he best talk to G neville (easily the best pundit on tv imo) who shows you how to check your bias at the door - career suicide in that game if you can't (they'll all pander to it at times and openly voice 'maybe im bias' at times, but the good ones can see a game from a non supporter take)

Didn't expect to see you here, Richard. I'm sure you'll smash it, though

;)

I think there is an argument that some voice types are not suitable for commentaries, especially in moments of excitement or goals where the crowd noise rises and the commentator has to be heard above it. Some vocal types just end up having to shout or scream to be heard.

Whether this might apply more to female voices, or not, is up for debate. Or maybe for study and comparison. I don't know

The one who sounds like Jonathon Pearce's sister (Jacquie Oatley?) is bad, comes across as really fake, bit like some of those clips on LFC TV where they've replaced the commentary

At first I put it down to her adding the commentary after the game but then heard her live and she was just as bad

I thought he said 16. I got my tax back when I was an apprentice for the corpy at 16, 1983, I picked up just shy of a hundred in cash - I bunked off college as I was terrified of losing it, the most money I had ever had, went to Beatties, bought a model and fucked off home.

We did the street fixtures, I was working in Norris Green, we had a portakabin on the junction of the East Lancs and Townsend. One of my jobs was to run the bookies for the time served fellas and put their bets on, that is the only reason I started betting.
