    Of those we see on TV today, who would you say is the best?

    Although I'm an Arsenal fan, I have to say it's Gary Neville - every time I've watched him, he talks sense. I'm actually quite looking forward to his half-time team talk on Sky Sports.

    I think the worst, or one of the worst, is Robbie Savage. He seems to change his opinion every week and his tactical talk isn't anything we don't know.

    Neville's the best because he analyses and gives insight into what we are seeing.

    The rest, including the worst of them like Savage, Shearer and to an extent Keane, are just opinionators. Just giving an opinion on something, and dishing out cookie cutter answers all the time, not adding anything to the viewing experience. Something that me and you could do quite easily. Even when they review incidents, they just tell us whats happening.

    Was the best thing to happen to Sky Sports the Andy Gray incident? As good as he was, it allowed Gary Neville a big role.

    Pretty much what I wanted to say.

    In fact it's a sad state of affairs when there is only one person, Gary Neville, currently operating on sky sports/bbc who can give some, at least, basic insight into a football game.

    gary neville and jamie redknapp talk sense on sky sports. i actually enjoy listening to savage on 606, but because of entertainment more than quality football analysis. he changes his mind far too much

    for me the majority on ITV are pretty bad (roy keane looks like he doesnt want to be there)

    Haha, Keane took that grumpy look from the pitch to the studio.

    Or another one I've heard is "goals win games". It's the equivalent to a classic cricket commentary line: "catches win matches".

    As a football pundit, he's not all that. For the laugh, though, certainly.

    Neville is excellent. Souness is good as well for me and doesn't give boring answers. I like the looks of disgust he gives Redknapp when he's talking ****e.

    Neville by a country mile - he seems to be the only one that actually does any research for the gig. Dixon was good on MOTD as well though.

    Shearer, Keane, and Niall Quinn are abysmal.
