BBC have just announced the signing of Vincent Company for this year's Euros. Far more interesting* is the return of Vialli to British terrestrial TV. Bit of a chuckle at the slightly desperate Irish connection pundits and BBC and ITV employing Lehmann and Aluko respectively. Have they ever actually watched MOTD2 Extra?
Latest confirmed pundits:
BBC Gary Lineker Alan Shearer Rio Ferdinand Thierry Henry Gianluca Vialli Vincent Kompany Martin Keown Jermaine Jenas Danny Murphy Robbie Savage John Hartson Dean Saunders Chris Brunt Neil Lennon Gerry Armstrong Mark Lawrenson Kevin Kilbane Jens Lehmann
ITV Mark Pougatch Ian Wright Lee Dixon Glenn Hoddle Slaven Bilic Lothar Matthaus Peter Crouch Tony Pulis Emmanuel Petit Christian Karembeu Louis Saha Norman Whiteside Eniola Aluko Richard Dunne Andy Townsend Iain Dowie
Maneki Neko apart from hoddle, who knows his shit(but still has zero charisma) ITVs are ruddy awful
I like Lee Dixon - and Hoddle can talk a load of twaddle sometimes. Ian Wright can be good entertainment value if kept quiet most of the time and occasionally wheeled out for over-reactions. Really only worth it when SWP was getting the odd cap though.
The Beeb have some utter cack, but their list is far superior on the whole.
