Most pundits aren't there to give proper opinions anyway, having him is miles better than the likes of Jenas who talks about us like we killed his cat or something.He's a really bad pundit.
Like the worst opinions you'll see on Twitter, Savage sees the game from the point of view of the individuals on the pitch rather than the team-play as a whole. You'd get equivalent insights from the 'fanboy'/'hater' factions in the Player Performance forum.
He's only in the the job because he has the gift of the gab. But I think I'd prefer dead air, to be honest.
He's like the anti Neville.I've always oddly liked him. He's always desperate for us to win, but last night was hilariously good. When Ronaldo had that chance that was well saved you heard Savage say YEEES thinking it was going in he was every single one of us. Well the ones of us that wanted us to win.
And he's much better for it! He was really fun last night, and was the same with Wales in the Euros. Not a good pundit by any means, but his enthusiasm is really enjoyable. Could be very annoying for neutrals or supporters of the other team thoughHes just given up any effort of trying to look unbiased
AgreedHis sons on the bench tonight and will probably make his debut.
Clearly this is Robbie's reward for being an absolute hero on comms this season.
