    Would anyone care if this segment was axed? Seemingly this guy just goes around the country spending our TV Licence money making non-essential programming (and indeed quite often pointless IMO)

    What do you reckon?

    His interview with Rafael Benitez was very good imo.

    Obviously biased, but I think they are quite good.

    I like Football Focus tbf. Seeing Dan Walker at various grounds interviewing the club chairmen is pretty pointless though.

    Definitely keep. I think Walker is good at his interviewing skills and brings a real sense of stability to the show. He's also likeable and not a twit, engages in good debates with the studio guests and abit of humour. I'd keep Walker and Football Focus, both do a service. They tend to do live trips here and there although they are doing one from Cardiff this week.

    Come on. There's alot of things even worse on the Beeb that our money is spent on. This is to do with football. So obviouly not a waste.

    I think the Beeb should get rid of Garth Crooks.

    He's better than Manish, and infinitely better than Chappers so I'd like him to stick around.

    Manish is too polished, too smooth and clean-cut. There's not enough edginess to him tbh. He's the Tim Henman of the media world. Walker is more raw, there's a certain cockiness to him...

    I think :confused:

    I just find Manish pointless, but that may just be a product of the show he got lumped with. Dan Walker isn't my favourite (Gabby Gabby Gabby :excited:) but he's definitely more interesting than Colin Murray, for example.

    He's pretty good. Better than most on BBC. I find most his stories interesting and he likes to put in a bit of banter.

    I think Gabby Logan is excellent. Big fan of her on 5live, not just doing the sport but current affairs and politics. There are a few female football commentators on 5live who are a bit piss poor but Gabby Logan is excellent, very intelligent, knows her **** and she's ruinable. Is she ****?!

    I was wondering if she was a mother. Of course, if she is, then she's certainly a **** ffs.

    Cut WHW some slack! :cool:

    Think all of the punditry and football coverage is a disgrace on the BBC. Get rid of the lot.

    I have nothing against DW personally - though I don't particularly like him as a presenter.. Its more the programming. I often see things on the BBC Sport website from Focus and I just think its a complete waste of time, money and effort (considering its licence money).
