    His summing up at the end of the game was a delight. He rambled on for a minute, got tongue tied, forgot what he had said before and just went quiet leaving the main commentator to finish off 😄😄😄

    Bit like Boris Johnson but not quite as bad.😀

    He said early on that if Wales didn’t concede then Switzerland would have to win by 5 to overtake us. He isn’t the brightest is he.

    Hartson, earnshaws, ledely, robson-kanu I know people say footballers aren't the brightest but don't couldn't have picked many worse.

    Commentator: “The Italian fans booing Bale there, do you think that’s a mark of respect John?”
    Hartson: “Well, you never hear fans booing bad players do you?”

    He was terrible, he said early on he liked the false number 9 tactic. After Italy scored he said Wales shouldnít play that way as it doesnít work - great analysis!

    It's clearly not something that comes natural to him.

    Him and savage would make a great early 2000's sky fan zone pairing.

    Was a bit like the guy down the pub, never a red ref, all he has done is stamp down on his ankle.

    Lets be fair. Hartsonís lucky to still be with us after his cancer scare, so as far as iím concerned, he can say what he wants.
    There arenít many decent commentators out there any way. At least you can have a chuckle at some of his ramblings 😁😁

    Definitely better on the radio (or should I say less worse?) where summarisers speak less.
    He tries to be articulate but just keeps repeating the same stuff about pride, passion teamwork, commitment etc without actually offering any insight into the game.

    I am very glad he defeated cancer but he's a shite pundit

    Maybe we should just get some bloke from down the pub who has got no legs

    Do you really need someone to tell you how the games going? Most of them spout nonsense anyway. Some geezer from a boozer with no legs would do for me.

    John Hartson once acted as a babysitter for my son for about half an hour.

    Did he lose him on 35 mins?

    So we get Savage on co-commentary for the BBC games and Hartson for the ITV games. What did we do to deserve this?
