It’s Euro Cup 2012, and soccer fans have come out the woodwork to wear their team’s colors, down a few pints, cheer, jest, and rage when their team drops.
Or when Craig Burley gets to commentate a game.
Craig Burley? Why are ITV trying to ruin the Euros for me?!

I hate Craig Burley.

Aww when you think you've got rid of Craig Burley until next season…

Craig Burley is a wanker.

A former midfielder for Chelsea, Burley has been getting into the TV pundit work as of late, and has worked with ESPN, BBC Radio 5 Live, and others. Today, he was given the privilege to help cover the Spain-Italy match. What he sees as an honor, others see as practically unwatchable.
"your commentary team tonight is Mark Lawrenson and Craig Burley" ** reaches for gun

First game I get to watch and Craig Burley somehow appears to have got a transfer from C5 to ITV. #mute

Craig Burley commentating on this game is bad enough, but telling Spain/Italy players 'what they should've done' is pure comedy! #Euro2012

Whenever I hear "and on commentary, Craig Burley and Jon Champion" a little part of my soul leaves me </3

what's worse than Craig Burley commentating on the game you're watching? Mark Bright commentating. #arsehole

To people who complained about the English pundits, bet you'd rather have them than Craig Burley now?!

Craig Burley shouldn't be allowed to talk about anything ever.

Just when you think ITV's football coverage can't get any worse… Craig Burley.

Craig Burley is to punditry what Harold Shipman was to medicine.

TV’s around the World are now displaying this soccer match in silence.
