There was some poor finishing, but we had some opportunities. We had 18 shots, 6 or so in the last 15. If we didn't snatch at them, they may have troubled the keeper.

Snatch. As Giggsy, John Terry or Ashley C could tell you, probably the biggest problem.

Phil. He was the poor man's Gary as a player, and he's followed him into the commentary box.

Sounded like a sat nav contemplating suicide.

Poor old Phil sounded like he was commentating on a snooker match, not the best voice for a 11pm game after a heavy Friday night. If England played their usual way, guaranteed the combination would've sent me to sleep.

Yeah, Phil Neville's commentary seems to be generating more discussion than the England performance, I guess Lawro's suddenly at his most popular in decades... in terms of other alternatives, apparently they have Waddle doing radio who generally isn't too bad, and "Zinedine" Kilbane who doesn't seem to be getting much better reviews than Phil Neville.

I don't know why they chose a complete novice for a match like this, surely Sky people could have been recruited for the summer?

Yeah, he's the lead commentator though, so who was alongside him in the ex-player/manager role?

Guess as Sky employees, the likes of Tyler do the global feeds for World Cups rather than working for one UK broadcaster.

And Gary Bloom who was commentating the Ivory Coast/ Japan game.

The trouble is, BBC and ITV don't do a lot of live games outside of international tournaments (none at all in the BBC's case at the moment). Therefore no need to employ a lot of commentators, particularly in the co-comm role as they don't use a two-man team for highlights. So they often have to employ relative novices at World Cups and Euros, while the better ones who work for the pay broadcasters either put their feet up for the summer or work for overseas broadcasts.

Yep . . . Tyler is the dog's bo**ocks of football commentators right now, followed closely by
Clive Tyldesley.

I just wish someone would castrate both Mark Lawrenson (Beeb) and Andy Townsend (ITV).
Both state the obvious throughout a match (yes we can follow the action ourselves, dickheads)
and both like the sound of their own voices.

We get Townsend for the premiership's analysis.... To be fair to him, he does fit the first four letters.

Quite like Dermot Gallacher for a referee's pov.

I'm sure it's been mentioned, but what a remarkable headed goal by van Persie v Spain earlier in the tournament. To be able to dive for a long ball coming from behind him AND get the necessary control on the header to effectively lob it over the keeper was simply outstanding CLASS with a capital C.

Aye.    Hopefully he'll take that form into the EPL.

Absolutely. In addition, his attitude to take that option is what the beautiful game is about.

If he mis-timed his dive or his header went wide then I'd imagine the coach would have kicked his ass for not taking the safer option of possibly trapping it with his feet and kicking it past the keeper in a one on one.

Yep. Not from when it hit the post though. It hits the post and then comes back to hit the keeper who then scrambles to grab it. It's over the line at that point but they obviously f*cked up a bit at first and showed the graphic from when it hit the post. Which was worth it due to Jonathan Pearce's hilarious stupidity that followed.

The Saints appoint Ronald Koeman - and his brother Erwin - to spearhead a new era of Dutchness.

Not bad. Not bad at all. Brought through a bunch of Feyenoord youngsters from their academy and turned them into internationals - De Vrij and Martins Indi started against Spain t'other day.

Seems a good fit.

The most impressive playing and managerial CV of any appointment in Saints' 129 year history. Not bad at all.

Did you know: he scored 239 goals in 685 games throughout his club career. He was a centre back. Mental.

Because there's not a football thread for next season yet, and also a tenuous link to the current Dutch team as a bunch of his proteges are in it.

And also, f*ck you chucklenuts. Don't rain on my parade.

And also, he's the only current PL manager with an official twitter account. I'm sure that'll work out great for him...

Germany v Portugal coming up.

Hope to see Rafa Silva come off the bench for Portugal and show a bit of magic. Rumoured Saints target. For new manager Ronald Koeman.

Related.
