I’ve not added the word ‘Pundit’. To stress the Thread on the evidence of Tonight, all Jamie Carragher has done has talk up Norwich, wtf?!
Clearly, he’s the OBVIOUS!
But it seems he’s otherwise been ‘media trained’.9th August 2019 at 9:59 pm #44915
Oh my God, he’s lapping it up.
The whole point of this Thread is that he’s designed just to comment on Norwich.
That’s what annoys me about SKY Coverage.9th August 2019 at 10:20 pm #44918
Not starting another separate thread, but finding this with Goldstein and Cundy.
I was hoping they’d be someone else. Time once and for to make a pact. Otherwise, this is just in health destruction.10th August 2019 at 11:02 am #44922
I didnt notice it if Im honest. Not saying he was or wasnt, i just dont remember much about Carra, except him potentially contradicting himself.
Early on in the game I thibk he said they should why as they were last season. Then later on he kinda mocked them for trying to play the same way as last season.
I could be wrong, in that I wasnt really listening tbh…
Really Nil though mate, season is young and thisnis absolutely nothing worth getting upset about. Save it for when a result goes against us ;(10th August 2019 at 12:24 pm #44926

Mak, it basically changed the mood of the second half adding to what became subdued anyway. Seems to me Carra’s been told by Sky to reign it in.
He needs to get the balance right rather than just try and talk Norwich up for the sake of it. Sky need to get in my view people un-associated with former clubs when those Teams affiliated are in action.10th August 2019 at 1:48 pm #4496410th August 2019 at 1:53 pm #44969
Nine, yeah mate. I would champion the same for BT Sport. Commentary is part of the overall facet and coverage. You can’t see it, but you can hear it.
I get the position from non-Liverpool supporters – maybe for example, they could leave Steve McManaman out from an impartiality point of view.

JOSE MOURINHO has joined the Sky Sports punditry team for the 2019/20 season. And the Portuguese will make his debut tomorrow for the mouthwatering clash between Chelsea and Manchester United – his two former clubs.10th August 2019 at 3:28 pm #45004
Nine, I am going to hold you to your earlier assertion 😛
The evidence is on here, ha 🙂10th August 2019 at 4:53 pm #4502110th August 2019 at 5:00 pm #45025
Haha, Nine I understand mate. I know how much regard you hold for Jose and understandably so Cheers 🙂10th August 2019 at 5:24 pm #45028

Jose has been good on bein sports10th August 2019 at 5:29 pm #45029
Oh no Nil don’t get me wrong Jose was a complete prize plumb at Chelsea at times and at United too but as the Ed suggests we won’t see the same Jose on screen and as Sean indicates he’s been good at bein sports.
I like Carragher too as a pundit too but he not a co commentator imo and as you suggested he’s best left off Liverpool games.11th August 2019 at 10:09 pm #45120
On the subject of Matchday Commentators, absolutely delight BBC installing Andy Townsend. He’s bad-mouthed and disliked by some on the Internet, but I’ve always found him to be pleasant, engaging, and generally well-balanced.
Hope to hear more from him 🙂
