    Poor Roy, I'd blame it on old age but Fergie and to a lesser extent Wenger are around his age too. Gary Neville shouldn't have been hired by Sky or England, should've stayed at home playing playstation or doing whatever old has been players do with the rest of their lives.

    Everyone makes mistakes, but this was one pretty bad. Who knows what old has beens do. Gary Neville was hands down the worst football commentator Sky's had in a while. Some of his comments were so atrociously biased. He was commenting on one of Chelsea's CL matches, and he took every possible opportunity to trash Chelsea. It was like come on, you're not playing anymore, so cut the United crap.

    Exactly, that's the thing. He's so biased and everytime he has to say something bad about United, you can see that it hurts him. I don't think he's cut out to be a top pundit on Sky, which has some of the best commentators in the country. It's appalling to watch him commentate, if you ever get the chance, jump on twitter during any games he's commentating and see the fans reaction to him, it is unanimously negative and calling for him to shut up and be removed as he sounds silly.

    As bad as he was this year, I still don't think he was as bad as some of the German commentators during the CL Final. I was in Germany for it, and the commentators were so biased it wasn't funny. Not only that, but some of the commercials featuring Bayern players were longer than the entire pregame coverage Chelsea received. You'd think that only one team was playing in the Final the way the way it was being represented before the match.

    There were lines such as, translated into English, "Chelsea's playstyle isn't pretty at all," as well as various other negative comments. Ballack and one of the other idiotic commentators predicted 3-0 and 4-0 wins for Bayern, respectively. The other two pundits gave fair 1-1 and 2-2 draws. It was just terrible.

    Re: The Football/Soccer Thread v2

    Does Chelsea even have a playing style? lol
    They're the most boring 'top team' to watch. So I would give the commentators that one... cuz it's true
    Anyway, England vs Belgium, missed the first half and England is up by one. Hope this game is as good as the hype it had.

    Re: The Football/Soccer Thread v2

    Kakashi, the point was that it was the most unequal presentation of a sporting event that I've ever seen. I know that I was watching a German broadcast, but sheesh...I switched over to English Sky after the end, and then we got something fairer, but at that point, the German commentators and fans were gutted, so there was nothing to say. The English commentators made some positive remarks.

    Even now that we've improved our side, I still don't know if we have a playing style. I mean, it's a 4-2-3-1 no matter how you look at it, but...

    __________

    In terms of the match, apart from more English players getting small injuries, it was a more or less solid performance. I predict that France wins 2-0 or 3-1.

    Kuyt's been a solid player for Liverpool since they signed him 6 years ago, it's a shame to see him leave but hope him all the best in Turkey. So another England player pulled out yesterday and that wasn't the biggest problem, Gary Cahill who pulled out was replaced by a relatively unknown Liverpool defender and Rio Ferdinand was once again shunned.

    I don't know why England is so confident even if several of their key players will miss Euro.. I know it's too early to ask, but in your opinion which country has the biggest chance to win the cup?

    Oh don't worry, every englishmen knows we're not getting past the quarters. I'd REALLY love for Holland to win, if not then Spain and it's only patriotic to have England as my 3rd choice. In terms of who has the biggest chance to win I think it'd be Holland, Spain, Germany or Portugal.

    Re: The Football/Soccer Thread v2

    I feel like Germany has the best shot to win for some reason. It would be easy to say Spain, but they'll be down Villa and Puyol and I'm not sure in what form Torres will be. Holland is up there too.

    Re: The Football/Soccer Thread v2

    Germany always get far, they're tournament specialists. I really feel like Holland can do it this year, not that I'm disregarding Spain because I feel like they're midfield alone can win them the tournament. But looking at the collective difference from 4 years ago, they've gone slightly backwards I feel, especially as you've rightly mentioned the absence of Villa and Puyol; with the latter being one of the most charismatic players to have ever played the game.
