    I demand the return of my licence fee. Sod off, Lawro, and all who sail in him.

    He could give a 4 year undergrad course on Sass.

    Some lad on Twitter posted saying that Lawrenson gives you the impression that he resents being alive. It's very true.

    He's got a phenomenal job but he commentates as if he's just got back from an underground battle against the Taliban.

    Like Souness a miserable cnut who hates modern football and quite possibly also a daft old racist.

    He's weird. Adds nothing to commentary and spouts nonsense 100% of the time.

    Might as well pick a grumpy old senile twat from any home. What the feck is he doing on TV?

    It can't be coincidence that everyone associated with Liverpool is a proper weirdo.

    He has a constant attitude of hating what he's doing, like he's been dragged in on his day off to a shitty job on minimum wage.

    He's also wrong almost 100% of the time, whilst adopting a know it all attitude and being sarcastic about everything.

    I actually hate him.

    He's by far my favourite co-commentator. Everything he spouts is gold. Was gutted when he got replaced for the biggies by Murphy.

    I genuinely think that when Hansen was let go of, they told him to cheer up & be part of a newer Motd. The man was horribly stuck in his ways, thus Lawros predictions was born.

    'What's that all about? A dislocated shoelace?'.

    I can't hate him when he comes out with one liners like that. Long live Lawro.

    Him and Hansen spent years ruining football coverage. I'll forever hold this grudge.

    I genuinely find him very amusing. He's not as negative and as much of a depressing misery as so many others. Yes he sounds like he'd rather be anywhere else, but it makes me laugh.

    On the one hand, I'm glad that the BBC doesn't demand breathless enthusiasm from its summarisers. But with Lawrenson you don't just get a bit of healthy scepticism - his default position is one of near-relentless, whingeing, weary contempt for the game he's watching.

    Remember when he argued with goal line technology during the Euros and asked what if technology was wrong?
    Say what you want about Lawro but the Terminator Apocalypse would never happen if he was around.

    I don't blame Lawro and Sounness for being sour and bitter and frankly just angry old men.

    They've watched their beloved Liverpool go from being the best team in England to a banter club over the last 3 decades, while being overtaken by their fiercest rivals.

    I remember him commentating on Lampard's (non)goal duirng the world cup, "what is it Fifa don't want?", "Thankyou Sepp Blatter" etc.

    As with most pundits, his general knowledge of the game is woeful.

    He commentates like a bloke down the pub watching a rival team he doesn’t like.

    He was insufferable. I don't mind differing opinions like some, but he's just a moany bastard that's tiring to listen to.

    Don't understand the hate, I've never listened to co-commentators for insight at all. At least Lawrenson's pessimistic ramblings are entertaining to a degree. Every other co-commentator is boring in comparison.

    Not the biggest fan, but I'd prefer Lawro anyday to Steve 'Ohhhhhh' Mcmanaman, or Martin 'has clearly headed the ball too many times' Keown, now there's a pair of annoying twats.

    :lol: Brilliant! He is as woeful as they come when it comes to commentary/punditry. The Itv line up overall is significantly better than BBC at this tournament.
