I set out to hate Talksports coverage ... but have been listening in ( against my political better wishes ) ... it is England playing an overseas test series , and I’ve been pleasantly surprised , yes they aren’t proper old TMS yet but they are trying and when they talk about the cricket , they’re good ... even Pietersen .. ! Blimey ... ! When it gets a bit too lads and banter they do seem to try to rain it in - Butcher especially .. I think he has been good.
And after listening to five minutes of the BBC cricket social ... gawd - awful.
Seems like young-ish ex players trying to be grown up radio commentators on Talksport ... while at the BBC - it’s old public school blokes trying to be down with the kids to attract a young audience that the BBC thinks it needs ... but they are shit.
