No I'm not. I like the to listen to whoever is best at the the job in hand and so far, in my opinion, they have all been men. It's like saying we must have more black managers but I don't care what colour they are I just want the best person for the job

:lol: But you don't get the best person for the job, imo. By and large the majority of commentators are absolute trash. There's probably a woman working a regular job that could make matches come to life, but she's got no shot because of her clit.

:lol: :thup:

Much of what passes for football commentary is unmitigated bullshit.

Find most people who stress they are not sexist normally are.  Very similar to the "i'm not racist...but"

No. They can f*** off and cover hockey or F1 if they want to be in the media.

Football is our escape from their s****. Just leave us the f*** alone for a few hours a week.

Vicky Sparks is an embarrassment to commentary. No f***ing idea how she’s made it.

Yeah so let them commentate on their own matches. I’ve noticed many token female pundits on various tv networks over the last year or so. Even the recent Rugby World Cup had at least one on every game.

I didn’t find them insightful, all I see is tv networks trying to appear woke.

It’s bullshit, if they could do the job as well as men, fair enough I have no problem with them. But that’s not the case, they’re taking the place of someone more qualified because of politics.

It’s the whole equality of opportunity vs. Equality of outcome debate.

what makes someone qualified? just having played the game at a high level doesn't make someone in the slightest bit qualified to actually analyse and give any kind of insight to a game eg micheal owen robbie savage and countless other former mens players. Whereas any time I've seen alex scott I've liked her as a pundit a lot more than most of the men.

To be honest I can’t say I was aware of her. Quick google search, she’s certainly a looker and will take your word for it if she’s an insightful pundit. She’s got the footballing credentials at least.

And your question about being qualified. Certainly playing in the top flight helps but also having the intelligence to analyse a game properly. Yes they are few and far between when the likes of Robbie Savage gets regular work.

But that also falls into another category where women fall short. Savage in particular has made a career out of being an antagonist. There’s a certain humour to it. He’s willing to take abuse from supporters to keep himself in the limelight.

If a woman was getting dogs abuse the way Savage does it would be on newsnight. Where’s the fun in that?

Alex Scott often does the job (as a pundit, not sure if I've heard her commentate) better than many men.


in one of her early appearances she was on with souness and he trotted out the usual PFM analysis of the first half along with some other t***, they went to Alex Scott and she gave a completely different view of what had happened, contradicted him completely and called the second half perfectly - i was sold from then on because it was so unusual to see differing opinions like that

i'd take it a step further and suggest we need more people from outside a football playing background to be involved, never mind sex or gender, but if everyone is parroting the same s**** nothing will ever change

get experienced journalists in there for their view on the game, stuff like that, mix it up and try to change the level of analysis we currently have which is frankly a f***ing embarrassment
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name
