What is wrong with the Mumbai mirror?

 

Nothing...it will naturally call Sanju a great commentator even though majority of ICF or India doesn't feel so.

PS: probably it's the same with other newspapers too. Maybe you remember LP Sahi and telegraph

Why are we celebrating someone losing their job?

 

Also now enjoy constant sucking up to Kohli,BCCI,Dhoni etc without an alternate view point.

 

Manjrekar was the only guy at times who called out Dhoni and Kohli.

 

Yes he has his Mumbai bias or love for Imran but everyone has their quirks.

 

Enjoy constant sucking only going forward.

I know he comes up with many negative comments but first with Harsha and now him we see a clear signal being sent for people to tow the line and not to question the "stars". Dont know how that's any better. 

i agree he is $hit and negative all times but doesn't lick as$ of big players every time like others.

licking arse or not the man wasnt even good at his job and if ur not good at ur job ull get kicked. 

 

He was a poor commentator , his analysis wasnt great either most times, he cant even present the case of his national player properly, doesnt know domestic players well and most importantly as once harsha said commentators are story tellers and manju is a vry poor one at that who has made public cringe

I feel VVS is the worst commentator out there and by some margin. Atleast Manju is controversial, VVS is the solution for insomnia. Why doesn't he get the boot? It's clear it's not just about how he does his job, there are worse out there than him. It's because he constantly ruffles feathers and doesn't hold back to anybody.

even LSKR and many Indian commentators are but dont remember anyone make public cringe as much as manju has had. He ruffling player shud affect players but if he affecting the audience well surely he isnt doing his job right

Manju was sacked for being a poor commie abd not for questioning anyone.

He is extremely biased. Makes personal comments and tries to run down players from India.

He was never a part of Star, he was mostly with Ten, praising pakistanis and others.

It was under the CoA regime,Dian Eduljee times, when he became a fixture in the Star team.

He has made personal remarks on a number of non Mumbai players.

Personally along with his commentary, i have a strong dislike for him since he insulted AB Vajpayee on the day he died. Manju is one of those fake bollywoodia liberal types.

Just checked tweets from csk around 2010-11 period and they did tweet similar stuff.

 

 

 

Idk looks like fake but i have seen teams tweet similar stuff back those days.

 

Link the tweets that you claim are real. And why are you defending manjrekar with csk tweets how are they related ?.  Manju got thrown out for being poor at his job and being biased and negative. It should be welcome. You should not defend him with your regional bias and irrational hate for some random franchaise.

BCCI did the right thing.

How long can a guy keep making Indian fans squirm with his bordering on anti Indian stance and constant disappointments at Indian sucess.

 

He may be a good analyst but the cost to the fans is too big.

 

The game is about the followers ,not the biased views of commentators.

 

He wasn't such a great batsman that followers need to suffer him so long .

In a totally unconnected development loud lisping cries have been heard in Mumbai (unattributed sources):  "Hai bacha le Imran jaan, bacha le, main pant khol ke Pakistan aaya re".

 

It is as yet unclear who has been wailing so loudly.

Manju is not the worst at analysing the game actually, though this may be an incredibly unpopular opinion here. He's good at the technical analysis of the game and is not the worst voice to listen to from india. I guess it is probably the bitterness on his part which shines through and what grates people because he is supposed to have underachieved and he blames the powers that be and people like sachin for it. He is never effusive in sachin praise for a guy from mumbai.

I have a counter view: In an IPL game, good technical analysis is not what the viewer wants. I really couldn't care less about why the bowler should have bowled an off break delivery or why the fielder at long on should have been at silly on or whatever. I only want my commentators to be lively, fairly witty, and not speak in a drab monotone.

Just on those counts I'd not like to have Manjrekar anywhere near the commentary box. Don't even get me started on Harsha.

Siddhu, Ganguly and Dean Jones added to the fun quotient. Best IPL commentary team.

Dude no point in defending manju. I must have tweeted on social media multiple times to get rid of him. Point is CSK has no business to talk about him also i posted reply from that tweet which idk might be fake or real (deleted tweets).

 

Edit looks like real tweets.

India were playing test match against SA on same date and india were 43/1 according to scorecard.

 

Scorecard: https://www.espncricinfo.com/series/13009/scorecard/463147/south-africa-vs-india-2nd-test-india-tour-of-south-africa-2010-11

 

I doubt someone faking this all will do everything in such details imo. Leave date even time looks perfectly correct according to match time.

Nope i don't think it's fake now. Looks 100% real tweets which were deleted after fans from other teams started trolling them couple of years ago.

Looks like those tweets were not deleted till this went viral. Read replies to confirm.

Since when commentators have become that important that they start bothering you? Cannot understand the joy here at removal of a commentator? Seriously?

BCCI should remove the captain or coach, so as to bring some much needed changes in Indian cricket.

Some of the things he said

 

He said Sachin was done during his tennis elbow issue: well sure it came from a place of  bitterness but Sachin himself thought of retiring around 2007. Sure he came back like a boss and made him look like a fool and whatever Manju’s intent was he said what a lot of people thought and couldn’t say because it involved Sachin.

 

Criticism of Jadeja: 90% of  ICF members have posted a meme or said a joke about Jadeja and how useless he was in LOIs at some point or the other. Why are we rubbing it in on Manju when he called Jadeja a bits and pieces player? We all know that was a fluke knock which he will never play again and in fact if it’s a slap on Manjrekar’s face, we need to be embarrassed too because we have said the same thing about him for years 

 

Calling Pollard brainless : yes that is racist and it is stupid of him to say it in public but we have all called WI players especially T20 experts like Pollard,Russell etc as brainless some time it the other.

 

Now I really don’t know what he said about Vajpayee :dontknow:

 

Anyway Manjrekar was a good alternative. We have too many one dimensional folk out there doing commentary
