    Ronnie Whelan, that is a man who just hates everything. He seems to get no joy out of football anymore.

    Stephen Kelly sounds like a 10-year old who won a contest to do co-commentary, on the back of a Rice Krispies box

    thats actually a harsh criticism of kelly. i find him to be quite informed and enthusiastic about the game.
    the other two i mentioned are far too negative

    Even if the summation of Kelly is 100% accurate he'd still be of more use 14 Ronnie Whelans and 3 Ray Houghtons.

    He offers more insight into the actual football than Whelan or Houghton, I agree.
    But he still sounds like an excited child

    I'd have thought most pundits have higher pitched voices in general. It doesn't really bother me - just glad to have someone who does his research and knows what he's talking about.

    T'would be a lovely little RTE Panel, if only Brady would retire. One game in and I'm already sick of him, the negativity, the sweeping generalisations, the attitude that makes it seem like he would rather be anywhere else. I don't even like Sadlier that much, but he always seems educated about the teams he's watching at least.

    Duff, Cunningham, Roy Keane and on occasion Damien Delaney are the only former Ireland internationals of the past 30 years who come across well in punditry for me

    Not sure about that. He nominated Qatar as the team to watch. Hadn't he seen them play us ?
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Enjoying Richie Sadlier and Kevin Doyle partnership this morning. Both positive and well-briefed and interesting and they are riffing well off each other in a way that doesn't occur with cranky Brady or more awkward Cunningham sitting beside either of Doyle or Sadlier or one another.

    I like Sadlier. I don't share the enthusiasm for Doyle though. The things he says are generally cogent and well informed, but he has a voice that would be ideal for conveying a message to shoppers over a department store intercom system in the event that a group of priests were trying to escape from the largest lingerie section in Ireland.

    Don't think Doyle is great on his own or with a lesser pundit. I think he's being dragged up to a better level by Sadlier. You can tell he is engaged and enthused when Sadlier speaks and he generally supports or counters with a decent point that is delivered in a better manner than normal (i.e. and I don't completely disagree with your description there, although the Wexford accent is a flat one in general).

    OK that made me laugh - there is definitely a touch of a Fr. Ted character about his voice.

    I like him though!

    One concurs on Doyle. I would like to add Gary Breen to my list of former Irish internationals who are worthwhile pundits
