Brady's got a chippy on his shoulder.

To all those who doubt the quality of entertainment that soccer can provide I produce Exhibit A; RTE's Champions League punditry.

Yet another performance that will go down in the annals of history along with Dunphy's questioning of Staunton's qualifications ("Would you let him drive the train to Cork, Bill?"), last night's hissyfit from Arsenal employee Liam Brady will live long in the memory.

And kudos to Dunphy for his antagonising jibes dressed as serious analysis (comparing Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger's sideline mannerisms to Monthy Python's Ministry of Silly Walks was sublime piss taking at it's best). The car crash telly continued by Brady's assertion that he would have refused to go on air had he known the backstage crew had assembled a video of Wenger's sideline behaviour and reached a climax when Dunphy revealed that he had a part to play in the editing room. Graeme Souness must have thought to himself "This would never happen at Sky"

No doubt some clever sod will provide a youtube clip, when it surfaces, regardless of your attitude to football I implore you to watch a sore loser and a wind up merchant at their best.

UPDATE: It's on YouTube at HERE, I'll embed when I'm home (work nazis have blocked YouTube here.)
