Imagine in Messi's final game for Barca, having Ray Hudson scream "WAAAAAH MAGESTERIAL MESSI" in Camp Nou.

When he was paired with Andy Gray, I actually liked Gray better. Tyler always went for some soundbite.

To be fair to him, he was probably thrown a lot of oil money just to go along with a City PR stunt that they can spam over social media as something interesting, to compete against the majority of people being more interested in Leicester, Liverpool and Chelsea.

Us getting Tyldesley to yell immortalised soundbites from stoppage time in the 1999 Champions League final in a stadium microphone would be pretty cringe.

They just try so hard.

The worst part is they could just let this stuff happen naturally. Unfortunately they are a great team now. Let these moments come naturally. But gold sponsors, recreating your greatest moment because a player is retiring, trying to make the Poznan happen, Cityzens, blue pitches. Just real try hards and trying to be epic in everything they do. All to try and be relevant. All while they play in a stadium called The Unite Stadium.

Their long term fans know they sold out when they changed their stadium, badge and when the tourists started to rock up but still try to make it look like Manchester is blue.

Pretty much all of this.

How desperate is he for City to sign Kane? Absolute state of this outdated dinosaur.

All about the narrative and the storyline for him these days, the football is irrelevant.

Did love his pot and kettle comment after Grealish's foul and subsequent whinging :lol:

Sky were the ones who said Kane had been given a longer holiday period, then two weeks later made a big story out of him not returning to training with rest of the squad for headlines.

Hate them.

Have to agree with this, thought Gray was an excellent co-commentator.

Gray and Tyler were legit a fantastic duo from pretty much beginning of the Premier League until about the mid 2000s. Gray's problem was that he is a neanderthal and Tyler's is that he has gone on far, far too long. He seems to be in love with his own voice and too preoccupied with coining the next soundbite to use in Sky's promo videos.

He’s been past his sell by date for a good few years now.

What was that line after Son's goal?

"First goal of the season! Possibly the last goal of the Harry Kane era!"

Everything is forced and fake with him.

He sounds shook today…

:nervous:
He sounded like he had a cold, but him and Neville are shocking. Neville not calling out the English players and him loving anything against utd.
Neville was very poor, listened last night and Carragher was very biased but Neville is just shit

He’s getting backlash on social media for comments he made today. Is the backlash warranted?

Poor choice of words but I don't think he meant Hillsborough was because of hooligans. He could have also had Heysel on his mind at the same time.

Yeah I thought the same. I think he was just thinking multiple incidents at the same time in his head.

Liverpool fans have gone in hard on him though. There already seems to be a feeling among them that he’s anti-Liverpool (which I don’t think is warranted either).

I think he's fecked. Sky probably want an excuse to bring in someone new, and he's given them a big out today. They're baying for his blood on twitter. This isnt good for Martin Tyler.

Poor choice of words that I’m sure he probably regrets it but Liverpool fans love any excuse to unleash a tantrum as we all know.

For people who say they have a good sense of humour, scousers seem to take any sleight against them (no matter how indirect it is or even if someone was trying to not make a joke) as a declaration of war.

They kept Carragher after he spat at a kid.

This is just an old man mixing up his words.

Sky keep who they want to keep. And they wanted to keep Carragher. Tyler is 76 and they're looking to replace him. Its a nice way to speed up that process and impliment some new blood.

I listen to that program daily and when I heard that and no follow up to clarify by the host I knew he would be in trouble. I believe he sincerely meant to name them as two separate things but it is god awful phrasing from someone who has spent 40 years making a living talking about football. He should know better. If you listened to the whole interview too it was pretty much a pat on the back of commercialisation of English football via hyping up the Premier League as if football would not have survived without it which itself was quite jarring to listen to.

Thing is, I understand it was a mistake and he probably didnt mean it as an insult to the memories of the victims and their families, but he's a professional broadcaster. His job is to not make royal feck ups like this. This is probably evidence he isnt cut out for live broadcasting anymore, with such a grand error like this.

I think that’s a bit of a reach. Most people will probably understand what he meant, but it won’t stop people just deciding it’s a deliberate insult to the 96.

What could other mean if he wasn’t using Hillsborough as an example of hooliganism? We could change commas around but we could also realise we don’t use commas in actual speech.
Scousers have a right to be offended over this imo. I have no idea who Tyler is apart from the 90 minutes on tv or what he believes in so he really does need to explain himself.
