I think Lineker is ok personally. Good sense of humour and even digs at himself as well. You can always tell if your teams game has been sh1te though because they put that awful screeching woman on doing the commentary. Not seen her do a Liverpool or City game yet though.

cannot understand why an attacking player who deliberately knocks a ball into the net is not sent off. If a defending player deliberately handballs to save a goal then he is sent off. To me its a no brainer that each offence is basically the same result.
