    Burley's right to be teed off, that studio looks like a toxic workplace with banter like a firm of ambulance chasing lawyers set up by a pig with a night school law qualification. The presenter is the most insufferable of all and Shaka Khan has really let himself down. Marcotti will do anything for an extra chicken drumstick and this could all get silly. Could EASILY see a glassing on a night out involving that lot. Make Keysey and Gray look consummate.

    Are you Craig Burley in disguise?

    Cracking game that! Forgot Cantona made a goal line clearance late on. Lots of drama at both ends. Keane played really well.

    That was some assist. Impressive.
    Shame it was to an opponent. ;)

    TBF to Craig he's right. They are being hypocritical slightly. They'll bash United every week then turn around after this win and say they'll go through.

    Fair play, Craig. The truth hurts. You guys can't handle the truth.

    In general the level of the ESPN punditry is really low.

    I think its funny he revealed how they always trashtalk Mourinho when the camera is off too, clearly he didn't get the memo for the night.

    Craig Burley has always come across as a shamefully bitter individual when commentating on our games. Just like Souness, he struggles to keep his hate for United from spilling out.

    That was hilarious, though. You could literally see the anger building inside him :lol:

    I think he played at Wembley in 1994 when we leathered them 4-0.

    I actually like him because he actually calls it like it is - they do wallop United like he said right now. He doesn't really have any particular favorites and gives it to just about everyone but, then also gives praise when warranted.

    All it takes is for us to lose 1 match and the anti Jose brigade will be out in force.
    The crazy thing is that most of that lot, want Poch in charge. Poch has just lost 3 matches in a row. If he did the same at MUFC, he'll be crucified by the same people who want him to replace Jose.

    Jose lost 2 matches and our season is gone. We are doomed and destined to relegation. Sack Jose fast! Our world is gonna end now.
    I bet that lot is crying inside now waiting to make an epic comeback again.

    Marcotti always gets thrown into these segments during awkward sitiations...and always looks like he finished a massive meal

    He is at it again saying lukaku will be outed(sic) by the next manager who comes in. He says that lukaku isn’t an intelligent striker and he is a big and strong striker. Why do people persist with this theory that lukaku isn’t intelligent. Is it borderline racist??

    I think they refer to his football intelligence rather than his actual intelligence. I mean he can't be stupid, he's fluent in something like 6 languages. However I think his football intelligence can be questioned. A big target man striker who can't actually hold the ball up and drifts out wide constantly. He doesn't play to his own strengths which is his pace and build.

    Have you read the Cafe lately? Not exactly unpopular opinions being expressed by Burley there.

    Oh stop your nonsense, it really, really isn't. You bringing in race is more racist to be perfectly honest. Lukaku's footballing intelligence is limited compared to better strikers, seeing his lack of goals against better teams/defenders, his amount of plain, similar goals and lack of goals out of "nothing".

    Think he's talking about his football intelligence and I can't disagree.

    Jeez!! I hope you are kidding but wouldn't surprise me if you weren't. Its becoming increasingly difficult to express opinions in here frankly without someone accusing you of having hidden agendas. This is a new one. You call it as you see it, well you must be racist.:houllier::houllier:

    It's Craig Burley. Won't bother with him. When your colleagues are laughing at you openly you should rethink your job to be honest...

    Craig Burley is a lowest common denominator pundit who probably puts out opinions he doesn’t really believe but says them for the attention, or if it’s a radio call-in show, to get gullible morons to call in to spend money and make money for the station. He’s like Talksport level where they just shill opinions to people who don’t know any better and can’t tell yet that theyre being duped by the routine shock jock playbook to get you to call in and spend your money.

    He’s harmless and like most analysis segments of a televised match, I just turn to the other side or go do something else for 15 minutes if it’s half time.
