Thread: Garth Crooks

    Garth Crooks

    Read the comments on the Tottenham versus Chelsea game from Garth Crooks.
    Many pundits and reviewers stated that while Ali scored two headed goals (which in itself is pretty good) he was virtually anonymous for the rest of the game.

    Garth Crooks statement "we have witnessed the birth of a great player" just confirms to me what an absolute arse he is. Every time I have the misfortune to see and hear him he is armed with bundles of papers and talks like he is the prima donna of all football commentators.

    He is rubbish, full of embarrassing bluster (aside from his comments on Mike 'It's not about you, Mike' Dean). I can't watch him anymore.

    Why he is still employed as a pundit? There are far more current former players who MUST be able to do a better job than him. I mean, have you EVER met anyone who has said:

    'Oh yes, Garth Crooks is a really good an insightful pundit'?

    He tries so hard to make everything he says as if it's profound. And it isn't.

    I said it was a poor game on reddit and I got downvoted to oblivion.

    There was next to zero quality. Scrappy and uneventful.

    Alli and Kane could barely pass the ball in the 1st half.

    It wasn't a very good game - anyone can see that.

    That is what I thought!.

    Doesn't help when reddit is filled with Americans watching on NBC etc. And they think the sun shines out of the Premier Leagues bum.

    It's the BBC.

    He fills a quota.

    The alternative is a Muslim woman in a mobility scooter.

    There's a Muslim woman living in my St who uses a mobility scooter, and she knows more about football than Crooks.

    Have you noticed how many of them are driving cars lately, I assume the husbands got a car and he's driving in front?

    He seems nice but I don't think many rate his football opinion.

    Makes me laugh how the likes of Garth crooks, Michael Owen, Martin keown and that **** Lawrenson are football pundits/journalist when imo the best football pundit/journalist Tim vickery is wasted away in Brazil and not used half as much as he should be although he does seem to love it out there

    Should we be considering players of Garth Crooks age?

    Re: Garth Crooks

    I remember someone on youtube once saying "Garth Crooks look like a deep sea diver who came up for air too quickly and is ready to explode".

    I think you'll find "bucket" is the collective noun for shit pundits.
