I feel like the thickest twat in football punditry deserves his own thread.

He's come out with some absolute shit in the past, but his advice to Callum Hudson-Odoi is probably one of the shitest opinions I've ever read, and as a long-standing SC member, that's saying something.

“Hudson-Odoi has got to stick at Chelsea,” Saunders told talkSPORT.

“Watch Pedro, watch Hazard, watch Willian. Study them and learn from them.

“Play now and again, then maybe next year go on loan to a Championship or League One club and play against men.”

Yes, Dean, you fucking fat arsed gammon, Hudson-Odoi should definitely go on loan to a League One club, rather than take his pick from Utd, Bayern or Dortmund in the summer. Utter twat.

He’s just a bit stupid really. In the past you could tell the stupid people to shut up. Now they put them on the radio.

And Merson is a man so spectacularly dense that he once opined that

“Everton are literally a bag of Revels”.
The thing with Merson is he knows he's thick and has a laugh at himself. Saunders thinks he has something worthwhile to say but is such a gormless twat.

Scored some belters for Villa back in the day, but I can't say I've even noticed him since he retired.

That is epic trolling by Saunders. He threw the bait out and is getting a massive backlash for it, which leads to more call-ins, more clicks and more listeners for Talkshite.

Surely he can't actually mean a word of that?

Surely? (n)

I had to turn him off yesterday as he was doing my head in. He is usually on with Ryan Mason, I swear I have heard Ryan with muffled laughter in response to some of the crap he spouts.
He must be cheap as he is always on somewhere.
Wanted 5 years for the bloke who whacked grealish . Some of these ex footballers are stealing a living ,they know very little about football generally. Your average supporter is far more knowledgeable

In the case of Saunders, it’s fair to say that the average dog has a more nuanced understanding of the game.

There are those who would say that Saunders doesn't have a clue what he's talking about but, to be fair, if there's a pundit who understands the importance of a spell in League One, it's Dean Saunders.

In September 2011, Saunders became manager of Championship team Doncaster Rovers. Thanks to his intelligence, insight and all-round footballing knowledge, Doncaster had earned a spell in League One by the end of the season.

Saunders then moved to Championship team Wolverhampton Wanderers in January 2013. Yet again, thanks to his in-depth tactical knowhow, Wolves too earned a spell in League One on the last day of the season.

Sadly, Saunders didn't get the opportunity to pit Wolves against the 'men' of League One because he was rather unkindly let go, but he did get his opportunity later with both Crawley and Chesterfield. Sadly, both of these footballing behemoths felt unable to retain his services for more than a couple of dozen games although, it should be noted, in that time Saunders did manage to earn Crawley a spell in League Two...

And people have the nerve to say he knows nothing about football... :cautious:

Dean "Look, I used to be a professional footballer, so I know a thing or two" Saunders is such a bellend it's not even offensive. He's the type of guy other people call "Champ" and ruffle his hair, while paying not one bit of notice to what he said.

I love that Andy Goldstien can wind him up like a pro, it's genuinely hilarious and you can hear the smirk in his voice when Saunders starts to bite :D

Proper Football Man?
Deano? Our Deano? Are you kidding me? He’s got the rarely issued personalised platinum shopping trolley of shame.

Not an ounce of his soul isn’t dedicated to being a Proper Football Man. Every point on the charge sheet has a tick next to it. The boys love him and they believe the Cloughie story and don’t care who knows it, because there’s nothing wrong with a drink and OK, their doctors have told them they’re an alcoholic, but they know it’s all just PC bollocks, is alcoholism, in the same way that punching a mate isn’t violence, it’s just banter. The boys have to roister and doister and if someone is going to drown in a canal as a result, then them’s just the breaks, officer.

They think he was only rubbish at being a manager due to an interfering chairman, foreign owners and player power. They’re all to blame for poor results. And headphones. It’s all headphones, these days.

Seems likely to be more interested in wearing the PFM cap and bells, and to be the jester-in-chief, specialising in tie-cutting, trouser-ruining, shlong-in-lager japes whilst drinking Reidy’s toilet cube, limescale remover and Brylcreem daiquiri served in a personalised colostomy bag, than in the intimate attentions of Miss Lava Bread Bra and Scanty Panties Body of 1979 in notorious Mumbles strip bar, and illegal aviary retailer, Budgie Smugglers.

Whilst Saunders offers very little in terms of intelligence, he still appears to look like Einstein against "Dull" David Seaman who is sensationally limited and as thick as shit. I suspect he's getting the current work due to his pushy publicity craving wife and a cash hungry agent.
