BT absolutely distraught their beloved Liverpool came up short. Hope Rio rips them to shreds tonight. Their coverage is an absolute disgrace.

Glad I didn't watch anything around the actual game tonight.

BT's coverage has always had air of smelly farts in a broom cupboard feel about and I'd want to avoid any more of Owen trying to appeal to his old fan base, it takes and already sad show down more.

ITV is still head and shoulders above and what a shame a CL final is again shoved on BT Sport's wank arse delayed Youtube channel only.

Owen was pretty pro Madrid if I'm being honest. Said the "offside" Benzema goal should have stood when he was on at half time

I thought Rio and Gerrard are alright. They gave Real credit and didn't talk too much shit. Its hard to listen to Owen and Mcmanaman. Those two live in a parallel universe.

Rio definitely the small ray of hope for BT coverage. Would love to beat Jake Humphrey with his own microphone too. Just an awful presenter.

I often change my mind on him but I don't think McManaman is too bad. Horrendous accent but I think he talks a lot of sense generally and calls it as he sees it. Something needs to be done about Michael Owen though, don't think there's anyone in the world that enjoys listening to him

Darren Fletcher is the worst commentator going. Talking like Liverpool invented football and Real were some shit house, park the bus, flukey team. Considering they had players who'd won the champions league 4 times (now 5), and were describe as "gritty", it was a shockingly biased bit of commentary.

How does Owen have a job?

He doesn't offer interesting football insight and if you don't do that as a pundit then you need to be a character to make up for it, which he isn't.

Liverpool fans don't like him. United fans don't like him. Neutral fans surely don't like him. His agent is a miracle worker.

For something like this

“Footballers these days often have to use their feet.”

“Blackburn have got two strikers on and they’re both playing up front.”

“Whichever team scores more goals usually wins.”

“If there’s a bit of rain about, it makes the surface wet.”

“You’re on your own out there with ten mates.”

“It’s definitely hit Defoe’s hand as it’s gone in, but it’s not a handball for me.”

“What a shot! That’s completely unstoppable, but the keeper’s got to do better for me.”

“I love these players with two feet.”

Who'll replace him?
Will be really difficult to find somebody who's as much of a smug wanker and who enjoys sniping at United quite so often. Maybe they can prise Simon Jordan from Talksport, though.

Lynsey Hipgrave, first words of the article :lol:



He still managed to be cringey in his congratulations: Humphrey replied: "You're going to be amazing Lynsey. So delighted for you. Please just let me back for the odd game." "

Should’ve just brought back Lineker, if it was me I’d also sack off all their halfwit pundits and get Wenger off Bein

My issue with BT is that it isn't as entertaining as Sky is when Keane is ranting or as informative as Sky is when Neville and Carragher are on MNF. It's just pretty bland. Ideally you'd have both but I can take just one or the other. BT has neither.

It has champions league though

Much preferred when there wasn't a 'choice' and just had to pay one fee to not watch all the games

watching them now.... and it's just dire (not that Fulham v Liverpool was ever likely to thrill me to be totally honest)
