The Roundtable tonight was SUPERB. It didn’t get too bogged down with inane stuff and while it wasn’t ALL dead serious everyone pretty much went at it in a professional way. It kinda reminded me a little bit of a well done political roundtable (I.E. The Capital Gang back in the day or McLaughlin Group)

Very entertaining 2 hrs IMO.

Bobcat is back next week. While I’m looking forward to it (Faulds? Seriously Rogers?), I wonder how much we’ll be regaled with stories about his golf game and home theatre.

Here’s hoping he hits the ground running. It’s been a busy few weeks, and there’s a lot to talk about.

Does anyone know when Tim&Sid are due back? I think one of their recent podcasts suggested they would be doing daily streaming shows on The Score starting in early September.

I received a survey from The Fan this week. One question was how I would rate Tim and Sid. Interesting.

The first interview on C&C was very deep.

The roundtable was strong on PTS

Pretty fab roundtable…thanks to Mike Wilner for reminding all the wannabees and those who should know better that terms used in soccer like ‘nil’ and ‘pitch’ are in fact British words, not generic soccer words. A British sportscaster would also use ‘nil’ if announcing hockey scores. So if any sports media are reading this: “Please stop!! The World Cup is in 3 years so you have lots of time to get this snobbish hitch out of your system.” Unless you also say stuff like “The Stars beat the Leafs 4-nil last night…”

People don’t have problems saying “love” when giving tennis scores do they? They shouldn’t have a problem saying “nil” when giving futbol scores.

But the Brits say “nil” when they cite baseball scores, as Wilner noted – and they do cite the baseball scores toward the playoffs.

The difference is that the term “love” has become intrinsic to the sport of tennis, but the term “nil,” for people here, is often an affected way to make themselves seem more British – much like calling a soccer team “FC.”

I see your point, Alex, but I do know a lot of people who, in their love of soccer, really are showing a great love of all-things British at the same time, which strikes me as rather funny at times.

For Nigel Reed to talk like that sounds great – he’s British. But it’s somewhat comical to hear a local person do that.

@Another Steve, no one adopts the “english” soccer verbage more than Craig Forrest. I realize the guy played in England for years, but i find it contrived his use of english soccer terms whenever possible. Maybe it is genuine, but just sounds forced to me. Had he played in the Bundesliga would he be using German expressions?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
