Get your anger out on anyone who annoys you during the World Cup.
For me it’s Phil Neville. The mans a tool. He just needs to shut up.

Let’s get a whole list of annoying pundits/commentators and I completely agree with you about Danny. Urgh. Makes you cringe.

OP.

Is the reason you don't like him because he's ex United and you're just bitter?

Anyway, aren't you missing the point of a commentator?
i.e. to commentate

The commentary might be used on radio stations around the world, not just on TV sets in the UK.
You don't want dead air on a radio broadcast. Or you might get someone moaning on a forum about the lack of commentary

Lawrenson totally ignored that amazing France goal today. The build up to that was class. All lawrenson was worried was whether it was offside or went in off an Australian player. Terrible commentary today.
Mark Lawrenson is the most negative presenter I've heard who contradicts his co-hosts a lot and is one of my least favourites.

If you actually watched it he wasn’t commentating he was analysing after the game so don’t talk to me unless you know what you are talking about. Fail much

That Eni Aluko on ITV, for what she did to Mark Sampson because of a tweet unrelated to the agenda she tried to pull, and that her punditry is horrid. The ITV pundits must be acting around her in fear of knowing one “comment that can be warped without any kind of logic or sense applied, and turned into being “offensive” “ and their job and reputation is on the line. BBC also went that “route” by getting Alex Scott in but she has actual constructive punditry and builds on the topics of the other pundits unlike Aluko.

This is a small island, buddy, fairly certain that any dna test would show you've got much the same blood as the peeps down the road - and you'd better hope that's the long road all the way to Cornwall - coz if it's the short road stopping at the border there's a strong possibility you're an inbred - which would of course perfectly explain your post.

On topic - another blunder in the so far great match between Germany and Mexico where the lead commentator Jonathan Pearce (I think, not sure) referred to the Mexicans as “Matadors”, although technically a correct term as Mexico does have Matadors, Wrestling is far more popular and prevalent in Mexico so the term ”Luchadors” would have been more appropriate. They most certainly playing like Luchadors taking the game to Germany and currently winning.

Phil Neville has been an irritant since the first England group game in the 2014 World Cup (his debut, and subsequently one of the worst commentary attempts in football history). He just wouldn’t shut up, he’s got no enthusiasm. No idea why BBC and ITV don’t go for guys who specialise in ‘colour-commentary’ like Ray Hudson instead of settling for these former footballer hacks.
No one talking about evra yet?
I haven't read every comment so it may have already been mentioned but, if it hasn't, I apologise in advance as this may ruin upcoming matches for those of you that haven't already noticed it. Martin Keown audibly sucks in air after every sentence. Once I noticed, it was absolutely unbearable for me.
