    Steve Nicol is probably in the top 10 worst pundits I've seen. So often his commentary is just lazy and he knows nothing of modern football tactics. He rarely seems to have done much research and when he has you can see other pundits genuinely caught off guard. His eternal presence is one of the main reasons I stopped watching ESPN FC.

    Is it just me or does he get really needlessly aggressive here for seemingly no reason? Really bizarre to watch. Seemed to take Marcotti's point as a real snipe at him when it was nothing of the sort.

    This is a great example of what Football 365 call the The Proper Football Man trying to put a non-PFM in their place. Sniggering bully boys' club, it's horrible.

    Cheers mate, yeah sometimes I just let the passion get to me a little too much, I think I just need to take a step back from now on and clear my thoughts before reacting, I get defensive over the club, I know that sounds ridiculous but I do and then it manifests in just me being overreactive, once again, sorry for that.

    I think that's the best approach to take, just not give a shit and let whatever will be will be, after all, it doesn't matter what we say on here, it won't change the outcome of things or what the pundits will say, they are ignorant and stuck with their own biases for the most part as many of us are, it is what it is, would rather build friendships than argue with people online quite frankly.

    Also, I appreciate that Ricky, thank you for the kind words.

    Mason speaks really well of Poch and Kane on this

    Also Journo reckons Pes was being sincere when he made that Kane comment

    Nicol is just one of many reasons I don't watch ESPN FC. He's an absolute moron. Aalmost as bad as that random English bloke they have on Fox coverage. No idea who he is. Presumably an ex-player but he's an absolute bellend.

    I said after the horrific injury Mason had that that I hope he would become a pundit if he could never play football again. I am really happy to see him start doing a bit of work with Sky Sports already.

    I thought he came over really well and made lots of interesting contributions. It sounds like he's looking forward to getting back playing and I wish him all the best.

    The issue most of these pundits have with Kane staying is based purely on jealousy. If he was Pool player you could bet your life their opinion would be almost opposite.

    I wonder if any of them have ever thought perhaps it's not just Kane that wants to stay put? Perhaps his missus has no desire to live in Spain, I mean moving abroad certainly isn't an idea that excites everyone, and she is far from your typical WAG.

    I'm yet to hear any of Poch's ex players have a bad word to say about him. Considering he froze Ade and Osvaldo out, it's astonishing that it's nothing but love for MP.

    IIRC Ade himself even had nothing but good words to say about him when asked. Likewise Townsend, despite both being effectively sacked off.

    Did she not play for Spurs too, and that's how they met? Why would they leave the one thing that brought them together.

    I thought they were friends at school.

    I just heard John Collins refer to VVD as the best defender in the primer league.

    Time to go to bed

    I don't think I could sit through that anyway with Trevor Francis who has an opinion that's always wrong plus Andy Keys who is such a massive bellend.

    I watch all the post match analysis YT uploads was thinking about starting a separate thread, but that comment from JC absolutely stunned me. VVD best defender in the EP? I could name at least 10 better than him.

    Have Andy Gray and Richard Keys morphed into one terrifying being then? ;). Scary thought.
