Thankful Tyler wasn't on NBC Sports here in the States today but every now and then he's on one of our games. Saw some people complaining about him on Twitter today.

How he still has a job is beyond me. Just an empty sack of nothingness that man. Offers nothing.

He was likening today’s result to an FA Cup semi final 20 odd years ago when Manchester United beat Arsenal. He said it gave United the momentum to go on and beat Arsenal to the Championship, that may well have been the case.  The difference then was that they were both still in a tight title race for that season which only had a handful of games left. United won by 1 point.

Tyler seemed to be implying that, despite a 20 point gap and us having already won the league with several games remaining, we’ve somehow handed the initiative back to them in a season that has yet to start, and indeed has no start date. Weird.

Tyler is shit because he's shit, not because of his age.

It was pointed out today on TV here in Australia that when Arsenal confirmed the league in 1998 very next game they lost 4-0 to Man Utd

Till 2006 Arsenal has a great team they didn’t suddenly go shit and it was at the beginning of Wenger’s era ( the good part )

I remember us beating Arsenal 4-0 after they had won the title in 97/98[Arsenal clinched the title beating Everton 4-0 ;D even Tony Adams was on the scoresheet that say :o] Owen missed a penalty too. i think we gave Arsenal the guard of honour that night, Arsenal had a total of 78 points that season too.

I only learned today that Martin Tyler is the same age as Jon Motson. Makes me wonder why Tyler can't just bow out and retire gracefully like Motty did.

I was watching an old Big Match show during lockdown. It was from 76/77, it was that long ago, Ray Wilkins had hair and I'm sure it was Tyler commentating. Had no idea either he was that old.

Sounds like Ray Parlour is back on the drink again, he gave his combined Liverpool/City team and didn't put Salah in it, but he has Kompany in it.

And I bet he hasn't improved with age.

Seriously?! He’s a pundit now? He came across as one of the thickest footballers in existence (in a very crowded field), so why anyone would choose him to dribble his opinions on anything is beyond me. There seems to be no qualifying criteria to be a pundit these days, apart from having played the game.
