Johnny Giles, Souness, Hamman : you may prefer RTE punditry to BBC/ITV

Irish TV pundits are not as  drab as Shearer & Adebayor.



This at 11a.m Tuesday from an Irishman studying in  England.

Dear Myles,

I completely agree with you about the pundits on Irish television.

I’m Irish but I’ve been in university in England for 2 years and am absolutely sick of the non-confrontational style on both BBC and ITV. At least in Ireland they are not afraid to say what they feel, some of the best moments of any live coverage on RTE have been the live debates.

There is no doubt that when Dunphy, Giles and Brady are on together, it can be the most entertaining thing on television.
