It's all received wisdoms.

Wales are passionate, Ireland's fans will celebrate whatever the score, Spain need a center forward to put crosses into, so do Germany, England are always wrong.

For the first time ever, ITV's coverage is better than BBC's. Mainly because Bilic has been great and Shearer continues to interrupt everyone with his amazing insights. It doesn't help Kilbane comes across like an autistic boy band member.

Clive Tyldsley is still dreadful though.

The internet has rendered punditry irrelevant, but it has always been bad: if anything, it has improved since the turn of the century.

I think you might be right but if the Internet is in competition with the "Experts" they need new experts.

Sat is there any kind of website that you submit content to so I can read more of your opinions on football related matters?

I'm amazed people get wound up by them, you don't have to watch/listen to what they say you know.

Before I stopped watching MOTD I used to record it then I could just watch the matches and skip the shite in between.

I do this. And if it's a live game I'm watching at home then I'll read through the match day threads on here, so I don't pay any attention.

I can't even remember the last time I listened to some punditry.

Henry talks a lot of sense for BBC, when he's not being talked/shouted over by the others.

Bilic is brilliant entertainment on ITV and I could listen to him speak all day. Can see why he's a decent manager.

Shearer is the worst for talking over people. There's a video where Lee Dixon looks at him in disbelief as he just talks over him.

I wouldn't mind but he has no insight whatsoever.

With match highlights it's important as you don't get the full view of the game otherwise. I tend to turn the sound down at half time for live games though.
