Aprés Match

Just isn't funny anymore, or is that just me?

I used to love it but it's not doing it for me this this time. I think part of the problem is in the past there was a lot of material to work with and satirise whereas now there really isn't. I mean you could take the piss out of the interactions of the regular panellists in previous tournaments but you can't do that nowadays since there isn't a chemistry to parody any more. Maybe if Dunphy and Hope Solo were having some awkward exchanges there would be something to lampoon at least.

Another issue is they've lost the ability to use two of their best characters in Bill and Gilesy and the pundits and hosts nowdays haven't the personality they brought to things.

It basically feels like a nostalgia act at this point whereas in its prime it was something I would genuinely look forward to.

Yeah full of tired and unfunny stereotypes.

Probably downright offensive also.

But sure the Anglo Saxon is a 'safe target'. Very little chance of a twitter outrage and sponsors pulling the plug.

Darragh Maloney is so bland they can't make him funny. So there's fewer studio sketches.

The third place playoffs with Apres Match in the studio was always good.

Bring back the 3 joes to salvage things. Or 2 Joes with Kerr.
