This scouse cnut has to be the most biased commentator ever.

When he's watching Liverpool, definitely.

He's improved somewhat with other teams though, particularly us. He used to practically froth at the mouth if we ever got anything remotely fortunate happen to us. He's not so bad these days.

That voice though. Sounds like he should be wearing a permanent spit-guard.

Annoying prick.

How him and Carragher are allowed to constantly commentate on Liverpool games is a farce.

Hearing his heart break when that goal was ruled offside was beautiful.

disagree. I like McManaman. He’s not biased in the way the likes of Redknapp and Souness are. He supports Liverpool and wants them to win, nothing wrong with that, but he’s very fair and unbiased I think.

I can't stand McManaman as a commentator. He hasn't got the voice/tone for it, but he also doesn't add anything insightful ever. There must be better out there.

He was gutted at the end.

I still remember him fuming about a clear onside goal disallowed for Newcastle at Old Trafford in a game they lost 6-0 years ago. He’s far too biased.

The amount of droplets coming from his mouth during the match must've been staggering. Is 2m enough to socially distance from a Scouser?

He's one of the most biased commentators I've ever heard, by a long way

It’s his annoying know-all VOICE REALLY LOUD IN THE PUB style which is annoying. He never shuts up. His commentary word count must be huge.

Hes not only biased he manages to combine that with having zero football knowledge, horrible scouse voice and just generally a very unlikeable chap. Staggering that he's BTs main man and that apparently some people like him :houllier:

I don't especially get the McManaman hatred.
I don't find him particularly biased either.
Remember this is a guy who stitched them up out of a big transfer fee wandering off to Real Madrid for free after spinning them on for a year that he might sign.

He's a controversial hot take merchant that sounds like the Liverpool fan shouting at the screen next to you in the pub. Really shit.

Overrated player and a complete shambles on commentary, he must say 'Fletch' 50 times per game plus his undoubted bias that he doesn't even try to disguise.

What Covid tier does Merseyside need to be in to stop him reaching the commentary box.

Really dislike him as a commentator but he was a very good football player.

From his commentary tonight v PSG.. Sorry if I’m mistaken. Fawning over keeper for the save. Replay shows spot kick from behind the goal. “ Keeper stays strong..... “ he pauses as he realizes he was off his line.. “Jumps forward just a little bit”

Obviously , gutted as he realizes a retake on the cards.

Apart from being able to hear him grinning when they equalized he was almost too complimentary.

Yeah I've always thought he's quite complimentary towards us.
He's complimentary towards all English clubs in European competitions, that's the BT memo (don't blame them, they are an English channel afterall).

Not sure biased the word I would use, he's more negative than anything and always complaining/moaning about players performances. Him along with Savage & Evra are the worse pundits / commentators on TV.

He's boring as hell. Don't know about biased. I don't notice that one as much. But he never says anything worthwhile and he often says something that didn't need saying several times.

Was hyping us a lot tonight. Get the feeling he hates PSG and doesn’t see the hype at all. Which is a view more should take and openly despise them at every opportunity.

Tonight was one of the few occasions where we profited from the English commentators rooting us on in Europe. McManaman included
