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.

Every time i've watched the England ladies play, there is always a male commentator.
Both female and male pundits are well capable of talking absolute crap about a football match.

If I slate the bloke nobody will notice. If I slate the woman...I'm a misogynist knuckle dragger.
I've seen mixed panels on women's football on BT. Frankly, I don't really care as long as they know what they're talking about. Alex Scott is a font of football knowledge, and the Chelsea Ladies manager Emma Hayes was on over the weekend and is also extremely knowledgeable.
As women's football is barely ever televised, you can't really make any meaningful comparison
What does it matter if they are male or female, as long as they are knowledgeable on the subject?
It matters to men who think football is no place for girls.
Some might say that football is exactly the place for big girls.

is it just a woman thing, or perhaps you havent found one you like listening to?
for example i cou;dnt stand john motson (or in fact linekar) but it didnt lead me to think all male sports presenters were rubbish
Theyre after joining the WAGs fraternity
It'll feel a bit funny at first but you'll get used to it.

Have you noticed, Theblip, how many female presenters front coverage of sports events like major golf tournaments, tennis and even cricket?

Why shouldn't female pundits appear on the television? Perhaps one idea is to get more female viewers interested?

Why don't you try emailing the Radio Times letter page with your sexist comments there?

Personally I couldn't care less if pundits are male or female as I won't watch the fest of wall-to-wall football, but then again I didn't post a thread about that.

as long as they are knowledgeable then should it matter.
I'd rather have some of the lovely ladies than the odious Lineker.
me too, ^
I’m a female sports fan, but not a football fan. I hardly notice if the pundits on my sports are male or female.
I have to say - and I might get blocked or my statue (;)thrown into the Bristol Channel for this - but I feel the black female cricket commentator Ebony is a box-ticking exercise.
All football pundits are a complete waste of time and, if they're getting paid, then it's money for old rope. It really is. Some of them can't even speak properly, recent examples being:

"...he has the abilee to do that"

"...he couldn't take that opportunee"

"...I didn't think that was a penawee"

I suppose it's better than working for a living, so I'd definitely do it if I could get away with it as much as they do.
Having said all that, I watch the live games with the sound turned off, and at half time I'll make a brew, switch channels or nip to the corner shop. Other than that, I suppose they're ok. Hey ho!
10ClarionSt, I agree, even though I don’t watch football.
I remember being irritated by Rebecca Adlington saying “s/he could of” multiple times during her commentary of swimming.
She hasn’t been on recently.

Also, why are there no female cricket umpires?
