my bad Barnesy10 - thought he was looking at Ballack while saying it. Phew. I knew he couldn't be that lax. I'll give you that one Redknapp, but I'm watching you :P

@kireca...I think the other Jamie was actually Carra, I'm sure the 3 pundits that night were Redknapp, Ballack and Carra. @Mr bojangles...dude let it go, we all make mistakes! @Monkeybutler...Glen Johnson is smarter than your average footballer. He's doing a maths degree and has learnt Spanish. Whether that means he will make a good pundit, who knows, but he isn't a dullard.

I got the feeling Dixon left the beeb because he was trying to do a job for the licence-payer while the three fools in the studio with him were getting paid much, much more to do the bare minimum. He's the best pundit on terrestrial TV and I hope it isn't long til he's saved from his ITV hell by a reformed BBC or, more likely, BTSport, whose Premier League pundits are awful. Jake Humphrey and Dixon would be the nicest, most professional combo on the box. Also, seeing as right backs clearly make the best pundits, are we give years away from really looking forward to hearing what Glen Johnson's take is?

Ive never liked Lee Dixon since a MOTD episode a few years back saying that apart form Gerrard and Torres, no Liverpool player would get in the Utd Team. he chose Darren Fletcher over Mascherano and Alonso, O'Shea over Arbeloa after that i thought he was a complete tit and refuse to listen to whatever he has to say, everyone has there own opinion but his was sh*te.

I haven't got a bad word to say about him. Other than he's got a face like an elbow. But he's still a beautiful man. Lovely Lee Dixon. Sex on a stick.

Dixon would come into his own as the main presenter; people only think of Lineker now as an anodyne average everyman but the BBC showed guts to give him the MoTD gig originally and he was good in the first 2 years. There is a trend on all tv channels to have a presenter who hasn't played the game supported by ex-pros; why? It would give thoughtful ex players like dixon, neville and nevin the platform they deserve. The likes of Chiles gets on everyones nerves so lets shake it up

Could it be argued that full-backs are the best pundits, given Dixon and Neville's achievements? Plus Carragher is part full-back. Usually on the small side so can't rely on physique to cover up lack of ability/intelligence; need to know what's what at both ends of the pitch; and even the best ones don't earn enough to rule out a post-playing job on the TV

From Neville to Dixon to Nevin. The holy trinity of knowledgeable punditry.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
