Recommended Posts

Grew up watching Saint and Greavsie when there was little other football on the telly, always a great watch with Saturday lunch. They bounced off each other perfectly.

In retrospect it probably was fairly low budget and cheesy, but required viewing before heading out to football on a Saturday afternoon! Both were actually articulate though, unlike the inane banter that prevails on pre-match shows nowadays. 

Agree entirely...today's so-called experts take themselves far too seriously and pontificate by over analysing to the point of being boring. Another reason I don't bother watching football on TV nowadays!
