Honestly, do Sky have any decent pundits?

Don Goodman, probably one that stands out, I'm struggling beyond that?

On the one positive note imo.....

Sue Smith...

Whatched her a lot on Sky.......does her homework. Done a few West Ham games where she knew the fringe players.

She is very articulate and good with a nice manner.

I don't go "oh ****" when shes on......quite the opposite. She will hold her own very comfortably in a male group.

Laura Woods is the best thing about Sky Sports at the moment.

Worth the remortgage to pay my subscription, alone.

I always think Alex Scott talks sense. Another one showing up the male cohort who spout constant rubbish...

I thought Liam Rosenior was good last year, but he’s now a coach somewhere... I think it’s with Philip Cocu at Derby County

If they knew what they were talking about, they'd be working for a football club.

Actually the knes that tend to be in the Championship passing comment are decent, always like to listen to Andy Hinchcliffe as well.

I really liked Alex Scott to start, thought very knowledgeable but is slowly turning into all the other pundits now.

Don Goodman is quality & by far the best for me :thup: Andy Hichcliffe as well is up there.

I like Keane & Souness just for the no mincing words and old school approach. Strachan is not seen much, but he is always worth a listen.

whats irritating is that they only seem to let the top ex premiership players be pundits on the top games

Really? It seems to me that punditry is a lot easier with better job security.

She's actually also a very good radio presenter on TS when covering for Brazil. Has a mischievous sense of humour
Rush Green-born but a gooner sadly.
