I was going to post a reply in the Swansea match thread but then i think it's something that's an issue every week. Not just as a West Brom fan finding it unenjoyable but a football fan in general.
They need for one to cut out the banter. Shearer, Lawrensen, and maybe even Hansen need to be replaced. They need to cut out the nonsence analysis of Shearer saying what he sees and get somebody like Lee Dixon back. Gary Linekar, get rid, just have him presenting live games or something.
What would i do, could be controversial and will almost likely never happen but i'd go for Keys and Gray and maybe poach a pundit from ITV.
Cut out how much time they interview managers/players and use that time for a more balanced highlights package and better post match analysis.
Being realistic, i could cope with Linekar staying but it'd be better if they employed somebody who maybe studies journalism, media and specialises in football. Get back Lee Dixon, then maybe one guest every week who is coming to the end of his career but looking towards e media future like Jason Roberts.
Or Mark Chapman as i enjoy him on 505, works for the BBC already, Lee Dixon and maybe Robbie Savage but tell him to drop the always wanting an arguement kind of attitude.
A list of potential guests who have been on before would be, Savage, Roberts, Steven Reid, Kompany, and maybe some managers now and then.
What would YOUR ideal presenter and pundits be?
I'd go for Keys and Gray, with a guest expert every week.
