  1. The world of football isn't just England. Most of these guys know sweet fa about the WORLD of football. Vickery, Marcotti, Doyle and Andy Brassell are the only ones that deserve to be on the list.

    When Gray was here doing the Euro's he didn't know a damn thing about any player outside of England.

  2. You mean the World of EPL football.

    Half these guys couldn't tell you a flipping thing about the WORLD OF FOOTBALL.

    Andy Gray was clueless over here during the Euros.

    It's either Vickery, Doyle or Brassell

  3. Well Gaff, can't say the use of John Madden helps. He may be the most recognizable, but not sure about the most knowledgeable.

  4. I'm kidding BTW. For my money, I prefer the writers of good articles rather than the TV studio pundits. I think Raphael Honegstein and Jonathan Wilson write some of the best articles on a consistent basis. I'd also give a nod to James Lawton and Henry Winter (who made your list).

  5. DP, Marcotti is on the list. Paul Doyle is well schooled in French football, but isn't an expert on leagues worldwide. Andy Brassell knows quite a bit about European football, but is by no means an expert on world football.

    I put Gray on the list to see if people would vote for him – and they have done :)

    The Gaffer
