Glenn Hoddle - Even Worse Co Commentator than Andy Townsend!!!
I always thought Andy Townsend was a poor commentator, what with his catchphrases 'not for me, Clive, not for me' and his lack of insight. But maybe his one redeeming factor was that he did not constantly talk to much (like Glenn Hoddle does). Although this gave more air time to the incredibly irritating Clive Tyldesly to commentate, who is so biased it is incredible. Not only is he a blatant Man Utd fan, he can't bear any criticism whatsoever of his beloved Wayne Rooney. When Rooney is playing badly(as he often does, particularly in big games and in international tournaments), what would Clive Tyldesly do? That's right, he'd screech something live 'GREAT TRACKING BACK BY ROONEY!' every time he tackled (ofted fouled) someone, as he had absolutely nothing else good to remark upon. Unbelievable!
Now onto Glenn Hoddle, who appears to have an incredibly over inflated opinion of himself, especially given his lack of success as a manager. He is openly biased towards Spurs players and appears to think Adam Lallana is the best thing since sliced bread, even though more often than not in past seasons, he has been completely ineffective. I know I am biased as an Arsenal fan, but claiming Rose should have had a penalty against Scotland when he was vaguely brushed and threw himself to the floor I though was very irritating. It's like he was encouraging diving. It's not like Rose does not have a history of diving either, so how can he have instantly convinced, at first site, that it was a penalty. Imho, Glenn Hoddle should never be manager and the sooner ITV and BT Sport get rid of him as a commentator, the better.
