Maybe I'm alone here but I don't watch any pundits at all.
Put the game on just before it starts, do something else at half time and turn off afterwards!
I just hope the commentator and side kick(s) during the match are not too annoying. I hope they're a bit like a good referee so you just don't notice them.

BBC showing games in Ultra HD on iPlayer which is a bonus.

Matterface just shows no emotion when England score. Why ITV thought he was a good idea is beyond me. Why not pay some of the sky commentators to do the England matches

I have got to say that Sam Matterface is proving himself to be a very poor choice as lead commentator for ITV. I don't usually concern myself with commentators but he has mentally not made the step from radio as he doesn't know when to stop padding with "interesting information," to the point of time and time again dribbling on over the top of attacking action.
A controversial appointment replacing veteran Clive Tyldesley, he just is not in the same league for me. I hoped initially it was just a case of finding his feet but he has nor improved. He really isn't up to the job.

Totally agree. Clive all the way

Are you waiting for guidance for celebration?

Just do your own thing regardless of him, he can't see you.......or can he?

He doesn't have the sense to know when to shut up. Very much a bad version of a local radio commentator who has somehow been given a top top job.

Micah Richards is the worst. Can only assume they've given him the role for his 'banter'.

Watching the MOTD Euros preview show last night, I found him difficult to listen to.

He makes Woodgate sound articulate 😆

Don't like Sam Matterface as a commentator, never have ... as folk have said, much prefer Tyldsley on ITV games.

Also, think ITV coverage and pundits are far better than BBCs.

I like Lineker but the likes of Alan Shearer .. a total doyle. Cannot stand the fella.

Roy Keane and Gary Neville are among the best pundits for live footy. Will be good to see awld enemies Keane and Vierea on the panels for ITV if true that they are having the latter on in their Euros coverage.

Enjoy his less serious stuff like his little road trip to Wembley this week for sky bet has been excellent with Roy Keane very funny. But I agree he was painfully bad last night, thought Ashley Williams was decent.

I don't mind Micah. He's a lot more likeable than a lot of the other pundits.

ITV definitely have the best pundits for the Euros.

ITV - upside better pundits, downside adverts and Matterface as commentator.

I think I'll watch the matches on BBC then flick over to ITV for the pre match/half time/post match analysis.

Yeah, they bounce off each other well. Shame Keane will be doing punditry for ITV.

You will have to watch both if you want them all. They share the games out, they both don’t have every game
