I'm amazed that despite the 1/31, they're still viewed as so successful and the UK media blueprint still seems to be to go to ex-Liverpool players as some sort of example of "big club" players or "successful" types.  Surely a lot of the gig is being relatively eloquent and having contextual knowledge and insight as well as some notion of name power? And thus Liverpool players of the last 20 years lack a bit of that, but it also means there are players from half a dozen English clubs that could be used regularly. 

(Although saying that, Scholes and Giggs have boatloads of medals, name power and presumably knowledge and are both about as eloquent as a bag of spanners and still get plenty of work).

the amount of ex Liverpool employed by Sky / BT is shocking. It's not like there is a disproportionate number of eloquent ex Liverpool players; quite the opposite, they're all awful

Carragher, Owen, McManaman, Crouch, Souness, Lawrenson, Redknapp, Warnock, Hamman, Murphy

If we're lucky, they wheel out JFH every now and then

Actually I think McManaman and Crouch are pretty good.    But yes, it is a dreadful average level.

This list could even be diversified a bit with his mistake that probably handed us the league in 2010. Although he may have meant that one.
