A very good thing to do because it endears people to you as you can crack a few jokes with the panel and talk football.

It'll be great to see the commentators talking about how boring the game is only for Mourinho to start talking about how beautiful it is while in the studio.

Hahaha... I think I can only recall one person who remained the same or even digressed (in terms of character) when changing the field of play for the studios and that's Paul Scholes.

Scholes is extremely knowledgeable though given the career he's had. He may sound a bit monotonous but I do enjoy listening to him.

More so than the likes of Michael Owen, Owen Hargreaves, Steve McManaman and a few others but that's a different conversation for a different day.

Oh, I would never dare to doubt Scholes' knowledge and the fact he's worth more than just listening to him mate.  It's his character... Listening to him also makes you feel like dropping dead isn't such a drama.  The Earth suddenly spins slower and the birds stop tweeting when Scholes speaks.

I can see him being quite good at this to be fair.

He is very biased to man utd though. He said they could win the champions league when LVG was there

Are they aware that he's actually Portuguese and that his accent just sounds Russian.

He's more qualified than Roberto Martinez when he was on ITV or something for a major tournament.

Mourinho doesn't joke. He attacks.

I think Martinez is quite good. Better than most ex footballers

ITV done well here.

I remember Bilic being good to listen to at the Euros or previous World Cup (can't remember which, maybe both!).

Enjoy Gary Neville and O'Neill, too. Good to have Clattenburg there to have a referee's opinion as they're not usually pundits but instead usually in-game analysts these days.

Meanwhile the BBC will no doubt be bringing back Robbie Savage to make a prick of himself again.

BBC just knocked ITV out of the water with a very impressive top end of football class for their coverage.

Not hard, I felt ITV line up as very average.

Either line up Dont matter ~ Shant be taking notice of anything they say  :ay:

Lampard is fantastic, Rio surprisingly good too. g Neville is is very good and I don’t mind O’Neil. I’d say ITV edge it pundit wise (BBC has some shockers like shearer) but overal BBC get the nod because they don’t have adverts.

evra is a fucking cunt, really annoys me how many people like him. He should’ve had a worldwide ban for ages after kicking that fan.

Well at least the BBC didn't bring back Adebayor. No offence but you had more chance of platting snot than understanding that bloke.

Mick Mccarthy was the worst in 2010. Such a dull cunt.

I quite like it when footballers give an opinion on a referee decision and then an ex referee tells them why they're  talking bollocks.

Lampard  and Rio with jenas would be good. I like most of those pundits apart from shearer. He gives me a headache

World Cup winner Cesc Fabregas is the latest international expert to join the BBC's punditry line-up in Russia.

The Chelsea midfielder, 31, has won more than 100 caps for Spain and helped them win the World Cup title in 2010.

He joins World Cup winner Jurgen Klinsmann, twice African player of the year Didier Drogba and 2014 World Cup finalist Pablo Zabaleta in a stellar line-up of international experts.

Fabregas will make his studio debut for Spain's game with Portugal on 15 June.

"We are delighted to welcome Cesc as he joins our star-studded team of experts in Russia," said Philip Bernie, head of TV Sport.

"He knows what it takes to lift the biggest prize in the sport, and we are greatly looking forward to the world class football knowledge and insight he will add to our coverage."
