I wonder how the number of people wanting female pundits on men’s football compares to the number of people who (like me) don’t want them. Are there as many male pundits on televised women’s football? I suspect not, but am prepared to be corrected

Well I am female and a football supporter but I actually came on here to ask exactly the same question! Really find them irritating and whoever thought they were being inclusive has got this one badly wrong.

I can't answer that question, Cloverjo, but it depends on how much the job would appeal to anyone, never mind a woman. There are lots of rules to learn, lots of time stood out in the sun (if you're lucky!); county cricket umpires have a four day job don't they? And for test umpires, lots of international travel followed by a five day watch. There may well be a few women who officiate in local league cricket. Might be worth Googling
I’d do it! Where do I sign up?
;)
I’m only half joking
Does anybody actuually listen to the pre and post match waffle, I`m not a fan but I`m sure most of us have better things to do with our time.
For Scots it's usually preferable to watching the game, CAC.

no, it takes longer than the game itself
There are no female cricket umpires because they are all in the pavilion doing the sandwiches for Tea.

I would have thought any gel would know that.
Its all about 'box ticking' I'm afraid!
-- answer removed --
Most punditry and commentating is twaddle, claptrap and opinion, often wrong and stupid and sometimes irritating. Men have demonstrated their adeptness at talking absolute crap for decades.
Now we have a flourishing Women’s football game, and knowledgeable women able to talk about it, then of course they should be employed to do so.
The bar has been set incredibly low by the men. I suspect those against the idea are just frightened of the women being better at it than the men, which is almost inevitable.
I have to confess I’m female but I cannot bear female football commentators. I don’t know why, but it’s as though they pretend to know what they’re talking about. The one yesterday talking about the ‘off side’ rule etc she just sounded silly lol.
Everyone sounds silly when talking about the offside rule. Because the rule itself is ambiguous. I've followed football for near on 60 years and i don't understand it as it now stands.
Box ticking nonsense we just have to put up with.
But, why oh why do they persist with the female commentator.
Not their fault but football commentary simply isn't suited by the female voice. (no matter how many years of voice coaching the licence payer is mugged for)
I'm not sexist but all women are simply no good at talking with the authority needed when it comes to sports.
you don't know my Doris jim . . .
Jim, that looks like one of those sentences that starts with a denial of something, before completely proving that the denial was utter BS.
Excellent....knowledgeable, clear thinking and the two that I have seen on the Sunday Supplement on TV.....easy on the eye.
A balance of male and female satisfies the likes of me.
// I wonder how the number of people wanting. wpomen.../
telling tehem to get their rrosses out of bed, get a job and earn money so she can feed the children

but it is a fact of life ....

and I dont mean FGareth Thomas's jock strap !
