“Bailly didn’t complain” as the video footage clearly shows Bailly pointing to the ball to say he got it. :lol:

What is his problem? He’s not impartial in the studio most of the time but on comms he plays this weird character who seems to delight in talking shit about us.

Agreed.

Somehow it's now a penalty in real time but not when you slow it down so he is arguing not to show a slow motion replay. feck me

To be fair he did say in his day it's not a foul.

But even in this day, it's not a foul.
He also said "teams might start to need to do something about AWB" after weeks of AWB setting up goals. Oh they might need to defend him? How about they should have been concerned about him getting forward for weeks, not maybe in the future.

That's another nonsense thing. At this level, no team is ignoring a player and just letting them do what they want, that's suicide.

Fans on here are to obsessed with what he says. So he doesn’t believe every decision should go out way. So what!

Never a penalty. I don't see why it's so hard to be dispassionate/neutral on penalties. That was never one in a million years. The penalty against Smalling a few weeks ago that did go our way was utterly ridiculous.

I really don't think Neville, or any of the co-owners of Salford - or any other club - should be employed by the likes of Sky or BT as a regular.

All pundits have 'conflicts of interests' in terms of former clubs, rivalries, etc, but that gets evened out and is just part of the role.

But allowing, actually paying, the chairman of a club to regularly voice their views on topics such as 'how much money should drop down the leagues, etc' then it's an unfair privilege that other clubs owners don't benefit from.

He's being paid to push a self serving narrative that benefits his club at the expense of others (literally, in terms of calling for more money to come down to them). And I don't think that's right. If he wants to stay as owner of a club, he shouldn't be allowed a regular soapbox to spout self serving views.

I've always believed that. Its a two way street though

Calling for more money to be shared to the lower leagues is a good view to have - the only chairman he has privilege over are premier league chairman as they'd be the people paying to support clubs in the football league. It would be self serving if it was only to Salford but he wants money to be spread all the way down the football pyramid. Being the chairman of a League two side actually puts him in a unique position because he knows what he's talking about. He knows his club in particular don't need these payments. He kept all of his staff paid. He knows that the clubs around him, the chairmen he has relationships with were really really struggling with some clubs being on the brink of closure. He's slightly hypocritical at times, but all in all his heart is in a good place when it comes to football.

'He's being paid to push a self serving narrative that benefits his club at the expense of others' which clubs are you worrying about here? Premier league clubs? They're fine.
