    I would hazard a guess that this poster, the one that mentions malt, doesn’t miss work on numerous occasions for it. Or looks the epitome of an alcoholic

    Not sure anyone is saying it’s not ok to have a drink

    Dean saunders also contributes to that show. Value for money?

    He probably gets 500/1000 quid a show. So yes. He plays the stooge - and, in a way, it works.

    I would hazard a guess that you don’t have much of an eye for tongue-in-cheek comments.

    Alan Brazil is Alan Brazil. If you don’t like him, don’t listen. Likewise, don’t moan about the man for basically being nothing but himself.

    Personally I think he’s a good listen, never too serious, and I think his escapades are pretty funny. Plus if I had the chance to go on the **** at Cheltenham all week then, as he would say, ‘hello’!! I would be all over it.

    Lot of jealousy on this thread. If you want to talk about ****ers on the radio then start a thread about James O’Brian.

    Said poster had some health issues a while back and is actually rather sensible about his drinking... a large degree of in-joke and tongue in cheek figure...

    Talk Sport is what it is. It's a formula that obviously works for them, but grates with some of us. Perhaps it tries to have that pub banter feel, and maybe a more knowledgeable, more professional bunch of presenters wouldn't work.

    For me it fails for that very reason and feel that it could be so much better. However, I guess its target audience is trades people, van drivers etc., who want something light hearted in the background that doesn't need their full attention. Hence discussion, banter and opinion win out over in depth, knowledgeable analysis. A sporting version of the Today programme simply wouldn't meet those requirements.

    Personally I preferred it when it was still Talk Radio, when they had Lofty from Eastenders, but what do I know?

    It's the breakfast show, that and the drive time show will always be the most popular shows on any station. I'd say its a stretch to say people love him, most would listen to the same show with or without him hosting it.

    I like listening to Adrian Durham Drive Time. He can be controversial but that's the point.

    Yesterday asked whether Leeds are the most exciting ever outside the Premier. Obviously Nuno's Wolves were mentioned as an alternative.

    Good listening..

    Until they started talking about Wolves spending an 'unprecedented' amount for the Championship... hate how this is just generally accepted, because we spent a similar amount on Neves as Villa spent on Mccromack

    Spot on. On different stations, Chris Evans and Chris Moyles have found to their cost, that their ego's aren't bigger than their former breakfast shows. Zoe Ball, Grimmy and now Greg James are doing okay despite the latter two being complete knobs.

    You know how us trades people in our vans struggle with long words and attention spans....... I’m pretty sure it’s not what you meant though.

    There’s loads of repetition on talk sport, they’ll cover the same ground over and over throughout the day. Trades and drivers are of course targeted, it’s a bite size format for people who don’t listen for long. Unfortunately I drive a lot, it becomes very tedious. I mix up my listening to avoid hearing different presenters regurgitating talking points constantly.

    I think it was him today that asked which English team is most likel to win the champions league? He started a poll online but omitted Spurs lol. Of course it got the spurs fans spitting bullets and phoning in. Debate instigated. Job done.

    Last night just before midnight Goldstein and Cundy did a mock draw for the Champions League draw and having drawn Utd v Spurs he drew out Barcelona v Utd in the last one too.He wrote Utd twice instead of City.

    It certainly wasn't! I did try and pick my words carefully. :)
    The point was that it's not always easy to stay focused on the radio when you've got a job to do. Listening to Talk Sport is doesn't take a whole lot of concentration, and (as you say) it tends to repeat quite a bit.

    It is the radio equivalent of the Sun.

    I think James O'Brien can be a good listen at times, at least he targets people who are not literally challenged. Talksport like The Sun newspaper and ITV television station targets the dumb and dumber. You could then add 90% of football pundits who gain jobs based on profile rather than knowledge of the game.
