British football fans aren't alien to the idea of their pundits having a bit of banter between them, especially when it comes to Carragher and Gary Neville or, perhaps surprisingly, Richards and Roy Keane.
The former Manchester City full back's personality is so infectious that even Keane can't help but drop his often dour persona from time to time.
However there is still a very serious side to punditry in this country, especially when it comes to the Champions League, and fans were jealous of the US' coverage.
On Tuesday, Abdo presented a segment with here three esteemed pundits in which they answered fairly quick fire questions about football - from who their toughest opponent was to whether Arsenal will qualify for Europe next season or not.
Why can’t we get these guys for the UK version, so much better than Ferdinand, Owen, Hargreaves etc…— Very Frank (@No_twit_here11) October 19, 2021
BT sport needs to upgrade their pundits— Mr Jurgen klopp (@Oyedirankehind7) October 20, 2021
Can I watch this rather than the guff on bt sport! @MicahRichards has got to be the most liked pundit out there.— TechNoir (@TechNoir80s) October 20, 2021
@btsportfootball could do with watching this! Immeasurably better than their stale-fest— George Baggaley (@georgebloggaley) October 20, 2021
This is so much better than the uber unnecessary ‘professionalism’ we often see by others. When these guys are relaxed they become more honest about what they truly believe and it's nice to see.— UtdArena (@utdarena) October 20, 2021
Also, notice Henry mentioning Scholes once again despite all the greats he faced. https://t.co/2oJM2FtYnT

Sorry why can’t we have this coverage in the UK? 😩😩😩 https://t.co/E8wyz8oJcP— 🥲 (@aknmc_) October 20, 2021
UK is bad vibes man cos why dont we get this stuff?— Dan Koogs (@dankoogs) October 20, 2021
Was cracking up throughout. https://t.co/5hQA337YDq
Whilst there is a lot of fun about the segment, and we get to find out all of Henry's favourite New York restaurants and Carragher taking the p*ss out of the 'Emptyhad,' there's also some interesting insight.
Henry saying that his hardest opponents to face were Paul Scholes and Championship Manager 01/02 legend Taribo West is a bit of a surprise, and will delight Manchester United fans no doubt.
Fans in the UK have to put up with BT's coverage, headed by Jake Humphrey, and there has often been criticism of the pundits and co-commentators.
There is very rarely anything as interesting or fun as what Abdo and her guests came up with on Tuesday night.
At least if fans didn't enjoy the coverage on Tuesday, the football was still excellent with Phil Foden's pass a particular highlight for us.
