    Tyler is awesome.

    As a neutral of course he'll say good things about the opposition and about us as well - in proportion to how good we are against our opponents.

    Love his commentary.

    He may be biased, but I like listening to his commentary. Would like to know who is better than him ?

    He may have been fit-for-purpose at one time but he's now a dinosaur in the John Motson mold. You can't knock him for not retiring yet though;- VIP seat at every ground anywhere in the world, all expenses paid.

    I always thought Barry Davies was great; he'd approach each game purely as a neutral and commentate on what was happening on the pitch, with fair appraisals and critique and a decent knowledge of the game. His quality stood out even more against John Motson, who I always thought was utterly terrible ("The last time these played each other in the rain, there was an own goal. Will there be an own goal again today" type irrelevant bollocks)

    Barry Davies was a believer in saying nothing if there is nothing of value to say. A skill that appears to have vanished.

    Motson I'll always remember for his peak Motty comment during the 1-5 Germany game that "this is England's best result against Germany since the war".
