    I thought RTE announced Duffer was on their pundit panel for the World Cup. Either I'm wrong or I have missed him or he hasn't been on yet. Could be the very latter as he might have taken a little break post cup final. He is another that is like Doyle in that he can be energized by his partners or more that his partners can impact his tone like wet blankets.

    Another thing about Doyle is that sometimes he looks a tad hungover or something. Not cast aspersions on his professionalism - I think he owns and runs a bar and works with horses and none of that work is conducive to standard office hours.

    He's a likeable fella and knows and loves his football and his knowledge is current.

    Himself and Sadlier would have been a good strike partnership too if things went a different way!

    He also almost made the Euro 2016 squad. He would’ve been handy to have to replace the injured Jonathan Walters (V Sweden).

    IIRC he got a nasty injury in the final Dublin friendly before the euros (can’t remember who we were playing?). And he was having a stormer of a game before getting his leg sliced open

    Things seemed a little frosty between Peter Collins and Kenny Cunningham. Collins didn't appreciate Kenny's little jibes I think. Uncomfortable viewing really.

    I have on several occasions already during this World Cup (and during the Norway friendly) thought Kenny Cunningham has to be ****ed here. Obviously he isn’t but he says some bizarre things and goes way off on random tangents.

    I like Doyle/Kelly/Sadlier/Hamann and thin the panel is very good in general.

    I think Kelly is too much like a schoolboy getting transition year experience for my liking. The rest are all grand but probably a bit too much Dublin going on. Especially on co commentator.

    Cunningham was on with Given one night and the host (Collins I think) brought up Given getting into the FAI hall of Fame. Cunningham was asked about 3 times to say something positive about Given and his admission but he just kept making woeful jokes about Given not deserving. It was cringe and everyone knows Given was a quality keeper (don't they?) So it did nothing only frustrate viewers I would imagine.

    A few of the older panellists/co-commentators could do with being quietly let go. Ronnie Whelan sounds so genuinely miserable whenever he opens his mouth, it's clear he just despises modern football and is desperate to whinge. That's his prerogative, but it makes for aggravating listening. And Cawley I generally have a bit of time for, but he's one of the worst for Mark Lawrenson-esque "There wasn't much in that" sentiment.

    From watching the bit of coverage,Des Curran and Pat Fenlon are my favourite commentary duo,Whelan and Brady need binned,Kenny Cunningham is better in the studio than on commentary and Tony ODonoghue is not a great presenter…

    I think Des Curran deserves to be RTEs no 1 commentator at this stage. I get the impression that only George Hamilton, Darragh Moloney, Ray Houghton and Ronnie Whelan have travelled and the rest are doing the commentary from the studio.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.
