Thought Clive Tyldesley has rejoined ITV?

It's easy for me. BBC has Jenas who is probably the worst pundit ever.

ITV has Neville who is probably the best at the moment.
He has but he won’t be on England matches. Shocking decision he is way better than matterface

Totally agree. Matterface is a truly awful commentator.
ITV really should of put Clive back on England games and had Neville doing the co commentary. Would of been brilliant that and they defo would have the best coverage. I think Neville will just be a pundit which is a shame he’s an even better co commentator

ITV pundits only have 5 minutes to get over their point and there are usually 3 of them. I always find that annoying it's difficult for them to say much constructive. Even RK and GS would find it difficult to have a decent Barney in that time. I usually turn to another channel at half time to avoid the 10 minutes of adverts.

It’s a good point actually. ITV has less air time than any channel I know.

I thought ITV's coverage of the last world cup blew BBC's out of the water. I just cannot stand Matterface and his celeb gossip rag nonsense he likes to drop into his commentary.

Cant stand Jenas - awful in every sense of that word.. If Clive Tyildesley is on the mike for ITV I would turn the sound down and put the radio commentary on. Fortunately will make do with Sky in NZ who will have their own commentary team.

I'll always go with the BBC. For me they capture the tone and the fun of big sporting events better.

ITV probably does have the better pundits here, but like others said, it's 4 mins of punditry and 11 minutes of ads. Watching uninterrupted is so much more enjoyable.

ITV pundits are big names but I can't stand the commentators. Tyldesley's pre-prepared, scripted, convoluted guff he awkwardly crowbars in grates on me so much and he has no chemistry with co-commentators. He's a bit like Drury. Matterface is annoying AF as well. The best commentators should just get out of the way, if you find yourself checking who the commentator is, they're doing it wrong.

I quite like Jenas, in the minority here it seems.

BBC for me. Simply due to no adverts.

I can only handle so many 'respect' adverts from ITV. I get the anti racism message but the one about young children not caring whether they win or lose is full on cringe. The lad saying 'I used to get angry when my mates didn't pass'.

He is now happy as he's part of a team. I'm not sure he'll make it😂

Cant stand Ian wright and shearer the two of them together would still have an IQ of less than 100. They have absolutely no insight into the game at all.
