I think Hawthorne has improved hugely over the last few seasons. I used to think he was a bit middle-of-the-road and a "safe pair of hands" but recently, I've been enjoying his commentaries more and...

I agree but Channel 4 have got it into their heads that Tim & Simon are some sort of presenting power-duo who are the best things to happen to weekend TV just because they were C4's "high-profile"...

I hope the rumour is true and BT are looking at securing someone other than Humphrey to front the CL coverage. Lineker has really grown on me over the last few months and I thought he was brilliant...

^This. The focus is on the sports news and I find that when I tune in, there's less cross-promotion and pointless moving around the studio and more actual content - looks like it was just a Day 1...

They should have Tim and Amanda Byram presenting the show and have Simon just doing the cookery bits. She's presenting this Sunday and I always think it's better when she's on.

They didn't need her. ITV National Weather has Lucy Verasamy, Alex Beresford and Becky Mantin which is plenty to cover the national forecasts for the week.

I would have thought Redknapp with Quinn on SNF because of the Arsenal link as the guest pundit last season always had a link to one of the teams playing that night. Thought Souness and Carragher...

Gary usually has a few weeks off a season so instead of Dan Walker deputising, as much as I like him, they could get Lynam back for a one-off for the year that's in it. It's unlikely to happen though.

SSN became a bit of an institution in its old format. It was perfect- you could sit down and watch it for 20 minutes and you'd feel up to date on all the day's sports news. It was a default channel...

New timeslots as well. Jim and Kirsty have done quite well out of it - they're only on for two hours! I preferred the capital font and there doesn't seem to be much of a flow to the hours- here's...

Shocking decision to give him that match. He's a boxing commentator who clearly knows nothing about tennis yet the BBC give him a Nadal match on Centre Court in primetime ? His cliched, boring...

Yeah, I thought it would be that trio tonight so hopefully Souness, Ballack and Neville are in Munich next week if indeed it is Parry and Smith on commentary. Really disappointing to have Parry on...

The matches this weekend didn't really warrant an all-star punditry team so I'm not surprised they gave Neville, Carragher, Souness and Hoddle the weekend off. I'll go for Chamberlin with Carragher,...
