Real Football Panel Chat

Now I’m not the biggest fan of cantankerous old men sitting round a table dissing the new breed because they were not like them back in the day.  I think it’s rare to come across a set of ex-pros who don’t have some level of bitterness and harbour some level of resentment to the attention current pros get.  For all that, however, when I look at the football punditry scene on the various channels I rarely come across such rarefied and refreshing brutal honesty about players as this chat concerning a player highly rated then and now.

It makes me think that there may very well be a bid to ‘sanitise’ football panels so that genuine contentious and provocative personalities are side-lined in preference for safe considered technical input.  Life is about a mix and football panels should reflect that like this one.
