My word MOTD are really scraping the barrel ? Marcell Desailly is an embarrassment. How long will they give this joke? It's bad enough staying up to watch 30 secs of the blues but we need to get shut of this wanker. What a disgrace ? saying Everton "aren't a great team and have a small ground and like to give it a go at home". Then he mumbled something about Torres and confidence that Hansen quickly smoothed over. Ron Atkinson reprieved...

Did he say that? What a knob! I’d love to lock those MOTD guys in a room with a hungry tiger!
Seriously though, why are the BBC employing a guy who knows fuck-all about football? Twat!
Two words for you guys - "Football First". Who needs Match of the Day anymore?
Mark: People who don’t have Sky like me!
Look dont watch it or turn the sound down. The reason why these muppets are on TV because they are fucking thick. If any of them had half a brain they would be coaching or management, and if the BBC insist on hiring these pricks make sure they do a bit of homework. But at the end of the day BBC & sky dont give a fuck about us, look at the Spanish coverage Real Madrid & Barcalona thats all they are intrested in, same here "the 4" G14 that is all they know about. Its funny though I live in Jersey and was marching around trying to find the Everton Game on in a pub yesterday and ended up in the Chelsea pub fuck me out of 20 or so fans in the pub only two had ever been to a game in there lives. Now I live 400 miles away and originate from Liverpool and still manage 12 games a year, but this sums up these fucking so called high profile clubs. Hangers on and glory seekers now you cant accuse toffee fans of that can you. Genuine fans
It’s par for the course. It seems these days that they’ll let any ex-footballer on the TV to spout bollox. Have you seen Merson on Sky’s Soccer Saturday? What a muppet, can’t string a sentence together! It’s mildly entertaining though, unlike Desailly’s french mumblings!
Don’t get me started on Jamie "fucking red shite" Redknapp!
You see there is three types of ex pro football players. 1. The ex player who takes his coaching badges and puts something back into the game. 2. The ex player who leaves football and might start a business up and then you have the fucking leaches like hanson, Linekar and Lawrenson, fucking dead brains who are shuffed in front of the cameras looking like a fucking puppet, who just repeat the same things week after week, just listen to Hansen, hes got a fucking tape up his arse that is stuck on ’back of net"
All footy on the BBC is shite, besides the love all the presenters (lineker included) have for anything the ?big 4? do or say, I cant stand the way the pricks all sit round back slapping each other and laughing at their crap jokes, skip over any controversial incidents and praise any big 4 game as ?what a great, fabulous game? even though it was a 0-0 bore. Then there is the fucking analysis: who gives two shits? anyone can stop a video and say - ? exshellent t tactical awareness the way he moved across the defender when the ball was played? - chances are we can all see he just ran towards the fucking goal, but these pricks have to earn their keep and that means look how intelligent my analysis of the game is. Hansen is the worst for this- he might talk the most sense football-wise, but he thinks he?s fucking james bond. Then theres lawrenson who sits like a fucking TV psychologist talking about why different haircuts will be in style in the chelsea dressing room or some shit like that? Then theres loudmouth wright who usually just comes in to ?awooga? his way through england games - thank god i stopped watching those a long time ago, and then anyone of some twat foreigner who is there to mumble through the same dulcet ramblings while everyone sits around in awe because he can actually string two words together, i am sick of these middle of the road twats and now only watch ?football first? on sky - if you havent got it i suggest refuse to pay your license and put it towards sky - if they take you to court just take a video of graeme le saux talking about analysis of svens different tactical approaches and you will walk away scot free.
BTW Jamie Redknapp is enough reason to kick fuck out of your telly and go and do something less infuriating instead!
He was only there cos Lawro was at a gay bar, gay bar GAY BAR
yea desailly was chronic - with hasen egging him on
then he says to linekar - what did you ever win with them (EFC) - and gary just laughs it off
any of yous see the dave kitson interview on football focus?
he did a good interview and was harping on about the big 4 obsession etc.
then lawro just says - sour grapes - better yourself - and join a big club
Its important to remember that Desailles’ knowledge of English football is based on races for the title from the lates 90’s to the present. He obviously doesnt know about our past. In fairness to Lineker, he did come to our aid albeit rather passively.
What Desailles said speaks volumes about his footballing intellect.
FYI 40,000 stadium is not a small ground.
To be fair to Lineker, whon looked unamused by the comment, he did mutter something about Everton being sometimes a big club.
In what way is Ron Atkinson reprieved? Do you mean in his off camera racist comment about Marcel. If so the editors should make sure you cannot post again until you understand what you have implicated and appologise for that neandertal sign off (i appologise now for any neandertal who takes offence).
Desailly’s comments were ridiculous and you could argue ignorant, but that does not allow you to suggest what i think you are suggesting.
To be fair to Desailly, I reckon his comments have become a bit screwed up in translation. It has been said often enough that Goodison is a ’compact’ ground compared to more modern stadia, with fans practically on the pitch. Perhaps he was alluding to this? At the likes of the Emirtates, the fans are miles away, but at Goodison, the players can hear almost every comment. Gary Neville *spit* lost his rag because of the crowd here a couple of years back, and he’s played at almost every major ground in Europe. I can’t imagine how having a ’small’ ground would be of any benefit to either team.
He’s still a tosser for hanging around with Hansen, Lineker et al though.
Del Pierro - my comment about Atkinson and Desailly was in no way meant to be racist - I know Atkinson used racism in his point but the essence of his point was Desailly is thick and lazy. I wante dto use those elemnts to show up his lack of knowledge of the English game and the place that Everton Football Club has within that history. This to me suggests his laziness and his general comments and demeanour highlight how thick he actually is. Apologies to anybody who thought otherwise. The bottom line is this man has no place on our flagship football programme.
Why is Desailly thick and lazy. What are you basing this on? Have you sat in a room and tested his IQ. Is it because he said something you don’t like.
His knowledge of The Blues is from his playing days in England. His assesment as far as he is concerned is probably right and he was asked onto MOTD for his opinion, and that is what he gave.
Your comments are lazy and glib.
They are not based on any knowledge or fact and you also show an arrogance in interpreting what you think Atkinson meant. He himself has made no excuses for his comments and rightly so, he resigned. His remark is only remembered for its racism.
Paul, think before you post such nonsense again
