Yeah but when a team is 6-1 down it's probably time to accept that maybe they aren't playing that well. I don't think many Leeds fans enjoyed losing 6-2 to United just because the neutrals found it entertaining...which to be frank they probably didn't anyway. If I was watching Leeds playing Liverpool and Liverpool were 6-2 up, I'd turn it off.The reason is that you don’t know if they’ll score 6 or concede 6. Makes for great TV.
Brighton and Sheffield Utd were on yesterday as were Villa. As a neutral I know who I’d rather watch
Their game against City wasn't even particularly entertaining but Tyler and Neville spent the entire 90 minutes telling us it was. Literally the only thing I can remember about the game was the amount of bollocks the two of them were talking.
Sky need to tone it down a bit as their coverage is becoming noticably more annoying than anyone else's. THe games on Amazon in the week, the commentators were just commentating on the game. With Sky usually one or both of the commentators decide their narrative for the game before it even starts and then stick to it no matter how wrong it ends up being. Neville is particularly bad at this. He spends more time delivering ranty opinions than explaining what is actually going on. Either that or it just descends to the equivalent of listening to two old women nattering at a bus stop.
Another thing is this new habit of cutting to an extended slow motion replay of basically nothing happening, but while the game is going on, which seems to be universal between all broadcasters. I think we've missed about 20 minutes of football in the last 5 United games, in order to watch De Gea very slowly picking up the ball from 4 different angles, or some Sheffield United player falling off the pitch after trying to do a skill. It's also resulted in basically missing Sheffield United's first goal the other night and the build up play to Son's goal at Anfield. I mean we're literally paying these broadcasters so we can watch the game, not to sit there not being able to watch it because they decide to show other things that no one can possibly be interested in./old man rant
