    Since the World Cup started I've been listening to talk sport for 5 or 6 hours a day while traveling with work.

    Many on the mix have been very disparaging of the station and some of the presenters too, Alan Brazil and the Moose were singled out for most abuse.

    I just wanted to say I've quite enjoyed it. I find the presenters likeable. It's entertaining and doesn't require a great deal of concentration.

    They do repeat segments far too often, the adverts are annoying and repetitive, but I find some presenters quite insightful, others funny and enjoy the in house banter.

    It's alot like listening in on conversation on a shop floor where the staff all get on and bounce off of one another. The slating of Brazil and the Moose is well over the top.

    I'd suggest some posters should lighten up and appreciate talk sport for what it is, light entertainment for sports fans who don't want to listen to the same twenty songs on loop on a generic commercial radio station all day.

    I dont have an issue with Talksport or any of the radio phone ins but then I dont listen that much. I think it is just light entertainment but some take it all too seriously. I listen to the one at night quite often (Cundy and Goldstein is it?) and the fun they have with some of the callers has me in bits.

    Because of my hearing problems, I can't really listen to the radio anymore, but I used to enjoy Hawksbee and Jacobs.

    Agree. Coisty and Brazil in the mornings are decent and even like Simon Jordan on there which surprises me. The 2 mikes however are just too intense to listen - irritating mindless babble.

    I still prefer 5live though...Rachel Burdens husky voice on the way to work talking about football - yes please.

    If Brazil concentrated on Sport fair enough but people get sick of his gloating of turning left when he flies,Cheltenham,Ascot ,Twickenham,Langan’s and any other sporting event he freeloads from in sponsors boxes.Then we have the missed shows because of his drinking and his boorish behaviour when he was done for drink driving .
    That is the real Brazil I am afraid and not a window manifesting itself these past few weeks.

    Listen to drive time when driving home from work, that’s it really. But I like Durham, what a fantastic wind up merchant, Gough is good too.

    Talksport 2 is fine you get more depth to the football knowledge.
    With the World Cup you also end up watching ITV with its pre game and half time commercials which dull the brain.
    A television station not to be revisited once the World Cup is done.

    I for one would jump at the chance of attending these sporting events. A free drink up with the lads while while watching world class sports, yes please.

    As for missing shows with a hangover, If you dislike him so much why is that an issue? You don't have to suffer him on the airwaves.

    The gloating is definitely banter with his colleagues, it's not said to the listener. It's all very tongue in cheek anyway. You appear to be one who needs to lighten up. It smacks of jealousy.

    With all due respect you don’t know me so don’t tell me to lighten up.I am not jealous in the slightest .He can gloat all he likes in private but he revels in telling us everything.He is there to host a national show and no more.Do any others do it ? No.Do they do it on 5 live? No.

    Unless they have a movie or football game there isn’t a single show on ITV worth watching!

    I like Max Rushden. Have you been listening to the to the Guardian World cup podcasts? Also a big fan of The Football Ramble, which has been going on for years.

    You're right I don't know you but judging by this response I'll maintain my stance. You should lighten up. Clearly 5 live is more up your street so just listen to that, personally I don't find it half as entertaining. It's more matter of fact than light entertainment innit?

    Listened for years previously until all the best presenters left.

    Brazil is just a dreadful name-dropper, on borrowed time, with no real insights other than those you could gain glancing at some headlines.

    Durham's was good at one time, but has become a parody of himself, just taking controversial viewpoints to get a response, in a similar way to Piers Morgan.

    Goughy can't actually string a coherent sentence together, which can be a bit of an issue on the radio.

    The Moose takes a lot of stick but he is at least a lot more knowledgeable than most on there.

    Agree that Hawksbee and Jacobs were probably (and still are) the best thing about that station.

    You're right, it's now just a light-hearted entertainment station rather than a station with any in-depth sports analysis. But if they can't tell you anything you haven't heard or read elsewhere, what's the point? Same reason why I fast-forward the 'analysis' on MoTD.

    I understand Big Sam was on there the other day saying Gareth Southgate should ditch his system and go back to 442 against Sweden. Tells you everything you need to know really.

    I've started listening to this again during the world cup.

    Brazil is what he is, take it or leave it. I personally don't like him and find his anecdotes and drinking stories a bit dinosaur, but that being said, who doesn't have a few drinking stories. Regardless, some of the banter i find funny and some a bit cringe worthy.

    I did notice this morning he was referring to England as 'we' when talking to Sven

    For me Brazil is out of touch, boring and clueless. Every one else I really enjoy to be honest and no issue with the Moose for his comic relief.

    Station would be much better if getting rid of Brazil and I don't think many who listened when he was off for a week and guest presenters were in would have disagreed to be honest.

    I was driving past the Molineux about half hour ago and Saunders was on, dear me, he was trying to impart some tactical thought about the French that was laughable. It was though very few people would be aware of this, it was comical. Then Darren Bent came on, bloody hell, time to switch off.

    I hearing we got some bad press on talk sport today by moose and Bob mills saying we would get done by ffp

    Luckily simon Jordan was on to stick up for us , i havent listened myself yet.

    However I was listening this morning when moose was talking about Rob green saving a penalty for Chelsea. They had mark scwartzer on and he made some insulting comment along the lines of that he (moose) has as much chance as playing for chelsea then being a number 3 at chelsea

    I heard some the other day when I went to see my bf, he had it on, I think it was Natalie Sawyer off Sky who was presenting, didn't realise she did Talksport as well, and they were talking about managers using phones in the dugout or something.

    A dog (with or without bone) is probably more knowledgeable about football. Or just about anything else for that matter.

    Something about wanting to do the golf but Sky said no. So she quit. (Apparently)
