Sportsound Watch

That was an absolute disgrace today. Leanne Crichton could host. She brings far more to the show than "Kenny Mac". "Biscuits" screaming over everyone when the ball crossed the half way line at Livi. A nit pick but always listing Rangers first when they were third alphabetically was particularly irritating. Heard more about the English Premier league than Leagues 1 and 2 as well. Rant over

5:17 and they're discussing the teams in Europe rather than the games just finished?

Garbage.

That's an absolutely valid criticism. There is plenty of time to discuss those games tomorrow.

I thought there was a small improvement in the open all mics section today.  With hindsight I think they should have given the main role to Leanne. 

It'd instantly improve if they punted Preston. He just constantly talks over everybody, I had to put it off after half-time.

Yeah, by far the worst.  Butting in at every conceivable chance.

Preston acts like a rude arsehole on it. Would interrupt a goal just to talk about a shot going out for a throw in. Loves the sound of his own voice.

Absolute shite from 5pm. Driving back from the match where there was a full card bar 2 matches. All I heard was discussion and an interview on tomorrow's games and midweek games. Barely a mention of today's matches. Get McIntyre out of there.

Preston jumped in at one point today for a Hibs free kick 30 yards from goal I what was apparently a real chance for a Hibs goal.

Does Crichton take it upon herself to takeover or is McIntyre at the toilet? Either way it works

Today was one of the worst editions of OAM I've ever listened to.

If it reels in some more Rangers supporters to listen, I'm sure BBC Scotland will be happy enough though.

Absolutely chronic.

Glad it's not just me fizzing at this!

As if I wasn't raging enough leaving Ochilview, the drive home listening to that shite tipped me over the edge.

Even in the Premiership, I knew the outcomes but not the actual results until I was nearly home just before 6.

An absolute shambles.

In the past, Richard Gordon had usually rounded up the results with scorers etc. by the time I was home from a game at Firhill.

Just to echo the comments about OAM yesterday, it was so poor. I got in the car at 1:45 to head to the Clyde game and heard almost nothing about any other game other than Rangers and most of the discussion wasn’t even about the St J but about Europe in midweek, with McIntyre extensively interviewing De Boer for about 15 minutes.

After the football and a five minute walk back to the car, there were a few lines on games just finished - they were rounding up Aberdeen/Motherwell - but then it was on to the midweek games and discussion on Hearts and Celtic again. I actually got the results from the other Scottish games - and a brief line on table toppers, form etc - on Five Live, a UK wide broadcaster.

I’ve noticed the lack of attention paid to the lower leagues since the opening OAM of the season and it’s really quite dreadful that it’s now turning into effectively another midweek edition of Sportsound, which I don’t listen to because I don’t care about hearing yet more chat on the OF.

On this point, I have no doubt this is the reason why the focus has so clearly shifted recently but it’s absolutely fanciful that Rangers fans are gonna suddenly start listening to Sportsound now. They’ve only just let the BBC back in to actually provide coverage on their games and they - as well as Celtic - are just waiting for the next grievance to play up to their fans about.

ETA: he also just said "the 5th side in the Dutch Eredivise beat one of our top teams" as if that should never happen. Hopefully another Eredivisie team absolutely fucks another Scottish team this week so he fucking learns

Anyone with half a brain wouldn’t be comparing the 5th placed team in the Eredivise to any team in our Premiership outside the OF. Financially they aren’t on the same level, and with all respect to Dundee United, the AZ team were evidently of a much higher calibre. That’s no sleight on United btw, who played brilliantly in the home leg. With the standard of the media in this country it’s no surprise to hear someone like McIntyre trying to distort the facts in order to put the boot in to one of our clubs. I very rarely listen to Sportsound, and I will be going out my way to avoid it from now on. It genuinely angers me that guys like Bonnar, Miller and McIntyre are taking  wage from a publicly funded broadcaster. 

I always remember the reaction to Celtic getting pasted 7-1 off PSG, and how the media were falling over themselves to tell anyone who would listen that Celtic just can’t compete financially with teams like that. It’s funny they never happened to mention the gulf in finances when Celtics £30,000,000 squad put 7 past St Mirren last season.
