Really poor again tonight.
Afraid you're right.
However 'inclusive' & open minded I'm trying to be her voice just doesn't work.
I also think Jonathon Pearce peaked on Robot-Wars. He's a good journalist, but he could open cans with that screeching of his.
She hasn't impressed this end user. Needs a good pre-season, perhaps.
Pearce is a shrieking goon who shouldn't be allowed near public service broadcasting. He nearly jizzed onto his microphone when the Spammers stayed up.

My idea of a commentator is that he/she commentates. That's all. I turn on the radio because I want to know how a games progressing. That's all. I have absolutely no interest what so ever in what the commentator's opinion is, and Alan Green seems to think that the listener tunes in to here his opinion first and foremost.
Think I've said elsewhere in these (web)pages that Green is paid to be opinionated on 6-0-6
and to commentate on matches, but he seems to have been confused his carte-blanche on the Garrulous Gobshite hour and now thinks we're interested in him rather than the game. We're not, Alan. Nobody ever though "Oh it's Coventry-Middlesbrough, not bothered about that but I'll listen to the two 23-minute spells Greeny commentates on".
Any good journalist knows when to report the facts and when to spout opinion. The Guardian
(not actually stacked to the rafters with good ones, as it goes) is even conducting an advertising campaign based on this notion. Green should take heed, but he won't.
