    "ah that's too much like bank talk"


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,133 ✭✭✭✭ Brendan Bendar


    They haven’t learned anything, it appears.

    He’s back.

    There's nothing to learn.

    There's nothing to learn.

    Apart from losing audience, unfortunately.

    Would have to say, not surprised, but couldn’t take the lad for more than a few minutes.

    Nothing personal, but hey.

    Must say I think Kerr is an excellent pundit. The accent isn’t great, but he knows his stuff and has a nice turn of phrase.

    Obviously not a football fan.

    He’s one of the best Co-commentators and analysts around at the moment.

    He knows his stuff. The accent is just the cream on top.

    I think he sounds hilarious. Like a fella ranting on the Luas.

    What’s your thoughts on Mick McCarthy, Brendan?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,278 ✭✭✭ Your Face


    I like him and his commentary can be great.

    Also, he did a lot of good work with youth teams.
    I knew a fella who worked with him in that capacity and he said he was a decent sort.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,133 ✭✭✭✭ Brendan Bendar


    he sounds like an oul drunk in the chipper on the walkinstown roundabout on a saturday night

    In the Kestrel?

    How the lad is tolerated has me bet into a cocked hat.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,055 ✭✭✭ JohnnyFlash


    Brian Kerr is a national treasure.

    I'm not a huge fan of the self-aggrandising "he's a proper salt o'de ert Dub" stuff you get from his fans. They're the type who think that the "inner city Dub" is somehow under-represented on our airways, even though they're a totally dominant demographic in Irish fiction and non-fiction alike. I'll never understand why people down in the capital are so fascinated with the social classes and groups that make up their population and feel the need to hoist that fascination with the rest of us.

    That being said, Kerr himself is said to be a top man and knows his soccer inside out. So I don't mind him.

    Shurrup yew, ye fucken tick. He's bleedin' deadly 'n all 'n anyways.

    I'm not particularly into football, but I could happily listen to him talking about it for hours.

    The documentary "In League With Gaddafi" was an interesting watch.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,633 ✭✭✭ andekwarhola


    Kerr does play up the auld Dubliner act a bit but he knows his stuff and i think he's a good commentator.

    Pity he actually had to become a pundit because the FAI, in their infinite spite, couldn't find a place again for an underage coach of his calibre once he left the senior setup.

    Wasn't enough of a Yes man by all accounts.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,479 ✭✭✭ Montage of Feck


    Real pity he was never given a proper crack at managing the senior squad.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,843 ✭✭✭ John Doe1


    As a donegal person, I love his working class dublin accent. Much better than Ryle nugent and the other marble mouth lads that are on Irish sports programs.

    He is also someone who geniunely cares for Irish football and we need him in a senior position in the new FAI.

    Plays up the comedian a bit too he once linked messiah‘s diminutive stature to his small feet. To a small ‘you know wha’. Messi’s a size 10

    Lookit, if we are looking for a ‘new FAI’ we don’t need the blasts from the past.

    Clear the lot out, the Inchicore weasel included.

    Get professionals in, not chancers and barrow boys.

    We’ve had enough of them.

    I think he's very enjoyable to listen to. He's a pure football man so can easily commentate without feeling the need to add drama.

    I'd take him any day over McEntyre off newstalk & virgin, who absolutely shoots his load anytime the ball gets close to the goal. Horrible commentary to listen to.

    The Inchicore what now?

    Are they not all professionals there already?
