Sadly this is not a red button game only way to watch is to pay the £10.00 to MFC or watch goals as they go in on Sky Sports

Does anyone else think Gillette Soccer Saturday/Special is absolutely crap these days? It feels like they've got rid of their experienced pundits in the interests of diversity, but the new team just aren't articulate and engaging enough to carry the show. Ironically, they've kept Merse, who was the only inarticulate member of the old studio panel...

I've not watched it since our matches have been available for streaming, so I can't comment on the quality, but could it just be that it'll take them time to gel and get to grips with the job?

The previous panel worked together for years and had a rapport based off that. This lot have had a few months.

I think it’s crap now but I’m struggling to think they changed the line up for diversity reasons (although it’s tricky to think of another reason that Clinton Morrison kept his role) Tim Sherwood, Tony Pulis are absolutely dreadful. If they did want quality presenters/pundits to add diversity I would’ve broke my neck to get any of Ian Wright, Micah Richards And moved Kammy in to the studio. Also I think Alex Scott is brilliant and would be great on the show

The way results have gone tonight makes a win vital to keep pace with teams above us..  don't need any gaps opening up (except at bottom of table)

I’ll be paying the cash for this. I should’ve just bought the bloody season pass....

 

either way, I can’t see whatmore and roberts both starting, but I’m all for this being a Roberts game. I reckon we will be pressing high up the pitch, so having him on the ball in the final third would be perfect. Aside from that, both saville and McNair were visibly struggling towards the end of the last game, I reckon there might be some rested legs....

It’s pretty bad yes after being brilliant. If they wanted to change the lineup they should have phased them out 1 at a time so it wasn’t noticeable. The wholesale changes have just ruined it completely for a lot of people.

It was only ever good because of the chemistry between Jeff and the pundits. A  football show without any football had no right to be so entertaining. 

They weren't the most insightful pundits around but that was part of the fun. You could tell they were enjoying themselves and all genuinely loved the game.

Got to be putting derby to the sword like teams were doing to us last season. Although at least our ex-pro manager last season had done some of his management badges. Sounds like Rooney just has his 1.5 GCSEs (PE and the first half of legal studies - I hear he's helping his wife out). I dont believe you can be an effective manager these days from on the pitch, especially when you're thick as a plank. 

 

It's a shame we won't have fans in the Riverside, I imagine some of the chants aimed at Rooney would have been amusing.

Being an old Technophobe I'd be lost trying to get this match on If I paid for it

    • Agree with Sandy..  we are inconsistent but some of that is relative inexperience and hopefully that will decrease. Hopefully we can get a few more U23's out on loan to push them on a bit and fill the squad up for next year..  we have the makings of a good team and if we can get the final pieces of the jigsaw, then we will be there or thereabouts . Would also like to mention that discipline seems to have improved significantly, halfway through season and only one red card, which was rightly overturned and most of the yellows were for "proper" fouls rather than dissent or other daft stuff..  Sam will always be Sam but having watched Souness, Kennedy, Glover, Hammy, Boam and other nasty boys, he is very mild compared to them and I think all good teams have someone like him, so I think it should be acknowledged he is the best Egyptian we've had   
    • Think they are nailed on to stay up now that they have fewer injuries...  Ol Gravel Voice might be a walking sphincter but he gets the best out of his players (except against City). wouldn't be surprised if current bottom 3 went down, but if anyone else gets dragged in, most likely Brighton or Barcodes
    • Burnley have 19 points from just 10 scored goals. That’s some achievement. 10 more goals and they’ll probably avoid relegation. 
    • Good opening post I hope to see your thread again for Rotherham 🙂 1:Team and formation?  Exactly same side as he started at Nottingham Forrest as believe its best side we have baring Fletcher.  2: Is it good to change a winning team?  Nope it isn't unless player is really knackered  3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy?  Yeah he will  4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance?  I think/hope as his contract is up we may see the best of Britt as he sure will wanna try earn biggest deal he can in the summer and we are his stage for showtime  5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... With Morsey it enables him to burst in the box with great effect so defiently be more of a goal scoring contribution from him  6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard?  Iron Maiden 7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? Yeah it's just our strength in depth see at LB dropping from Bola to Coulson is downgrade then at RB Dijksteel provides defensive steal remove him for Spence we are a lot worse defensively. Then in Midfield losing someone so Wing is required is downgrade. The reason Norwich are where they are is due to having two quality players in every position really.  8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)?  It has got to be Grosicki don't think any other fit the words Warnock said.
