    I dont think this bloke gets enough ridicule, I mean he's as bad if not worse than Merson. Take this for example

    He predicts we'll loose 2-1 to Wolves. Compare that to his thoughts on Arsenal

    He's gone for Arsenal to win 4-1

    He obviously has a history of outlandish comments as well

    How could anyone have watched that game and thought to themselves 'Maguire looks average' :lol:

    He was probably looking at his hair in the mirror for half the same. Bloke is completely up himself and lord knows how he got a commentary gig.

    Comfortably worse than Merson due to his sheer unmoving love for Arsenal, talks utter shite all the time.

    He's very bitter when it comes to United and not in an entertaining way. Probably thinks we're still in the early noughties.

    He's an absolute clown. His comments about the Tierney transfer were mental too.

    Don't watch it more. Watch BT's version. More to see if Sutton and Savage come to blows. I like them because they have the scores of all the big European leagues coming in as well.

    That Arsenal paid for over the odds for him and Celtic got lucky with getting that amount of money, that while he will make Arsenal better is he good enough long term, just in general being very dismissive of the whole transfer and Tierney as a player. Nicholas is everything but a Scottish football fan, he comes across as an absolute pillock when talking about Scotland or the Scottish game and doesn't support football up here at all.

    Ah okay. Always thought that Tierney would be a good signing for us.

    Wow given his glowing assessment of anything to do with Arsenal I'm surprised he didn't suggest Tierney was Maldini reborn

    So did I, and when Arsenal started being linked I thought we should have been moving Heaven and Earth to get him. Arsenal have got a very good and promising young player.

    Yeah I was expecting him to may over-exaggerate but I couldn't believe how dismissive he was. Okay he might not be the best left back in the country, but he's a very good young player who will get better playing in a more difficult league.

    How he can say sh*t about our defense with their crop of defenders I do not know..

    I actually think the appeal of Soccer Saturday is that it's more like mates chatting at the pub than real analysis from football experts :lol:

    Not sure which game he was watching if he thought Maguire was average and also he might be in hibernation for so long. Good chance he thinks Young is our RB.

    We should send Wan-Bissaka to his house so he can tackle him when he leaves for work.

    I was just going to start a thread about this stupid man.

    I thought Merson was bad at times but this twat takes it to a whole new level when it comes to being biased! Virtually spat my lunch out reading his predictions! Guy is simply an utter bellend!

    I watched it last weekend for the first time in about five years. Everyone looks really old and haggard, it was so bad.

    The Soccer Saturday bunch are getting less relevant with every passing weekend. They don't know the current scene anymore. Their opinions are usually so dated it's laughable.

    I really don’t get why people get so worked up about pundits giving opinions - he was trending on Twitter earlier and now there’s threads on here...you’re just giving them exactly what they want, attention. If you don’t like Soccer Saturday/Sunday Supplement or other platforms these people have, just don’t watch them.

    I stopped watching Soccer Saturday because of the pure crap some of these pundits speak.

    Charlie and Merse are completely anti Manutd for no reason whatsoever. And then there is the other chap who think Liverpool can do no wrong.

    They desperately need to change up the panel.

    I know they occasionally have someone different on now and then but it's basically been the same 4 clowns for about 10 years now. I mean fecking hell Thompson was playing when it was 2 points for a win.

    It's very very stale.

    I'd imagine he was trending for the same reason I started this thread and given the thread was started about a written piece telling me to not watch them is slightly irrelevant
