If im honest, I think he is the best pundit in the business. He analyses games and picks the bones out of sides. Obviously he is a cnut but that is irrelevant as to whether he is good at his job or not. I actually enjoyed tuning in to Monday night football to watch the assesment of the weekend. Dont think it will be the same now, who will replace him? Chris Kamara?! At least it would be funny.
He annoys the hell out of me and I have an instinctive liking for anyone who was as good a centre-forward as he was. But I find his commentary like his striking, too much force and not quite enough intelligence. This is why I prefer people like Hoddle and Gullit and Wilkins - more softly spoken, more reflective (and more experience as Chelsea managers).
Mind you Gray's not as bad as Souness.
