I actually don't mind talksport, and listen regularly. But I have heard some great stuff out of their "experts" I remember Mick Quinn saying that Liverpool wouldn't win the league in king kenny's first full season back but they would challenge and would finish 2!

So what have been your highlights

I only seem to listen to it in black cabs, and the drivers are nutters as they admit to calling in; so my key moments are usually getting out the cab alive

Used to be an habitual listener. Stopped when Keys and Gray joined.
Favourite show was/is H&J which I used to phone into every Friday for the short straw pole. Went up to the studio for the Christmas eve show as well. Great fun.
Too many shit presenters now though. Which is a shame.

Only listen to H&J on the way home, Barry Hearn was on today talking about the Olympic Stadium, said West Ham would be one of the biggest clubs in Europe in the next 5 years..... Hmmmmm... Ok Barry.

I like Colin Murray, mainly for the guests/co-presenters he has on, and i like Andy Goldstein's Sports Bar, even if it has got Cundy on it. He regularly demonstrates what a nobber he is, so it's still entertaining.

Johnny Vaughan though... jesus, he does my head in. He just carries jokes on waaaay too long and does it all at the top of his voice. He's one of them people who hears something funny, repeats it out loud then laughs like a horse. So Chelsea it's unbelievable.

Agree about Vaughan, he's pretty unbearable, they do have a tendency to hire dickheads like Quinn, H&J is the only show I have a genuine like for these days.

I actually like cundy! Yeah he's biased towards the chavs, but he always give the bin dippers a dose of reality!

Tried listening to it while I was driving up and down the M6 this week and couldn't stick it out for more than 20 minutes. Goughie is probably a lovely bloke but he knows less about football than my 83 year old Gran who is starting to forget her own address! H and J aren't even as good anymore - back in my temping/unemployed days they literally kept me sane Monday to Friday but yesterday I think I would have fallen asleep behind the wheel if I hadn't put some music on instead.

I actually prefer their post-match phone ins to 606 these days though simply because Kelly Cates is so bland and Ian Wright is so Ars*nal.

Quinny is a deluded scouse knob though and him and Georgie Bingham were trying to claim that Levy wouldn't turn down a big offer for Kane if one came in because apparently he's shown in the past with Bale and Modric that he'll take the money, and that immediately after Kane had done his interview where he made it clear he was happy at Spurs. Proper wound me up.

They are right to a point but what they don't say is that neither would Untied for Di Maria, Liverpool for Stirling, Arsenal for Van Persie etc etc.

Jamie rednapp was on yesterday saying that levy would accept the offer because we sold bale , luka, berbs and Carrick. Apart from Carrick all wanted to leave and we even forced luka to stay an extra year. I am hating the current Liverpool love in, good I hope we finish above them again!

But Talksport have Stan Collymore and he's... well, Stan Collymore.

It's amazing that they chose to give a phone in show to a man who never, ever stops talking.

Not tuned in for ages, found them all far too annoying and the adverts are atrocious.

I'd rather listen to podcasts on my way to and from work.

I listen to fighting cock and spurs show

I don't mind listening to it if I'm in the car. Although the fact they have adverts every 5 minutes is really annoying.

I like the little bios that they have for all the presenters, Danny Kelly's is amazing, listening to him when Lennon scored the 4th against arse is gold
