    BT Sports

    Iím watching the post match coverage of the games today and itís excellent, football people talking about football. Their coverage of Scottish football was head and shoulders above what sky gave us, I would tune into the BT coverage of a game early to watch the build up as it was worth watching. I get that sky cover more through their news channel but the matchday coverage is stale. I really hope sky have got something better than Neil Mcann and Chris Boyd sitting in a box talking ***** to offer us this season.

    United we stand here....

    It was, but itís now up to sky to make it as good. I hope they donít just continue as they were. Their coverage has been awful compared to BT.

    Although less air time Kris Boyd gets the better 😉

    Sky still use Andy Walker and Davie Provan - both awful, awful commentators/summarisers.

    BTís coverage was excellent, and theyíll be missed from Scottish football.

    Hopefully Hibs TV provides a good alternative - done well, it should be a sellable product in its own right even when weíre back in the stadium.

    Imagine a Friday night preview show dedicated to Hibs, for instance - then the match replay on a Sunday morning with good analysis, and features through the week etc.

    Youíd hope there is a long term view as well as short term, HibsTv should be a must have but unsure how popular it actually is.. personally donít have it (will now due the free access for season ticket holders)

    Being mates of Charlie Nic obviously is enough to get you jobs at Sky, jeez they even use McInally also. Talk about cronyism. Both Walker and Provan are awful really negative and slag off rather than praise without decent analysis. Should be getting much better imo.

    I always thought Chris Sutton was negative, certainly when he started, then BT moulded him into the pantomime villain and played up to it. He would call people brainless and clueless etc. Never quite got it myself.

    End of the day, if they wanted Scottish football, they would have paid the money and they didnít.

    Oft. Same! Guy is so negative towards Hibs for some reason. And in general he just annoyed me.

    Sutton on the wind-up is still levels ahead of Walker and Provan, who are dreadful.

    Despite BT losing the rights, i generally felt that their pundits knew the Scottish game. Sky pundits generally seem to know the Glasgow teams and not much else.

    Never been a fan of Andy Walker since he once described HIBS as being a ď provincial clubĒ ?

    He always looked as though he could not be arsed being here as a player and did not appreciate how big a club we actually are and that it should be a pleasure to play for such a fantastic club in front of our brilliant fans

    McCoist, Hartson and Darren Fletcher joining Skyís coverage.

    Kris Commons bumped.

    Boyd and McFadden still part of it.

    Andy Walker is a complete ********. His roaring and greeting in the aftermath of the pitch invasion was as pathetic as his "football knowledge". Man is a bumbling buffoon.

    Thank **** they got rid of Commons. Guy could barely string a sentence together.

    Hartson is awful too. In fact the majority of ex players are awful.

    Boyd & McFadden are hopeless, but McCoist and Hartson are decent and hopefully Darren Fletcher gives something from an Edinburgh perspective.

    Good to hear about McCoist and Fletcher, would rather McCoist do the commentary and they punt Waker. Disappointed Boyd is still there, must be up there with one of the worst pundits about

  22. #21
    Darren Fletcher is a rookie pundit, but already way more articulate and thoughtful than Boyd and Hartson.

    McCoist is fine to listen too, can be quite entertaining.

    The others are utter dross, Andy Walker is your mate with shan patter, no original opinions but is always available for a pint.
