    Why do Sky employ this complete Tosser he never gets any of his predictions correct and he seems to have itin for BRIGHTON.

      Merson, Crooks, Sutton,Townsend, Dixon, Shearer - the list can go on of useless pundits who get the gig because they aren't good enough to get a proper job in football.
      If we lived in a perfect place nobody would vote Tory.

      Agreed. Although he has now retired you can add to that list Alan Hansen. A wonderful footballer who I grately admired. Then he completely blotted his copybook by becoming a useless pundit.

      I have to give it to you Mr Hughton, you are a far better Manager than I ever thought.

      I particularly enjoyed Shearer and Wright desperately trying to find something to talk about regarding Brighton.

      Anyway, the fundamental reason there are bad pundits is that their ex-pro arrogance prohibits them from doing any research because they "know the game"

      I used to idolise Merson as a player when I was a kid. Wonderful player.

      Him and Ian Wright both have it right in for us though. Wrighty I can understand given his spell at Palace and the failed trial, but I don't know what we have done to Merson to earn his disdain?

      I don't think it's anything personal, it's what was mentioned above, that former players simply "know the game" and therefore don't actually study or research what is going on. Something has to happen to smack them in the face to notice the teams that come up. Merson has heard of Newcastle, so he's ok with them, and Huddersfield had a great opening day, so that was the "smack" to make him notice them. We started slowly, he's probably never played against us, we've just come up, so yeah, that team (whoever we happen to be) is the team that he will just dismiss.

      1st October, when we come away from The Emirates with 3 points, THEN he may actually have an opinion on us based on us rather than the fact he knows nothing about us.

      Probably refused him a drink in the boardroom when he brought his Walsall team down to the Withdean.

      On Sky Sports web site re transfers in last transfer window:

      MERSE SAYS: I look through the list of signings and I don't really know any of them. When you get promoted to the Premier League, you need to bring in a few seasoned professionals. This league will be new to almost everybody in that squad and for me that approach isn't going to work. I'm not happy with that.

      Seems like his view is based on ignorance.
