    I think Molly and Kiri "share" due to other commitments.

    I like Paul King better at the stage end than in the booth.

    Juha Kankkunen is great.

    Yes I’d prefer we only had her instead of Kiri, with all due respect.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    If Kiri was reading this and thought fuck it, then Molly became the anchor, 100% the conversation becomes bitching about Molly before long.

    Maybe some of yous need to take a rally off now and then.

    Molly is really working on getting more personal experience in a rally car, even if she comes from racing. She has been a driver and a co driver, and is married to one of the best drivers in Norway.

    Hopefully she will continue to drive, to become better at that, to become better as a rally journalist!

    The thing that amazes me is Molly's accent, I don't think any English person would readily recognise from her accent that she isn't entirely English. The more you listen and know she's Norwegian, you can hear it in places though. Apologies if I'm wrong, but isn't it a bit of a thing with Norwegian women in particular who speak English publicly that they try hard to shed the Norwegian accent out of it, because the Solberg style, somewhat 'hurdy-gurdy' heavily accented English (which I love! ) isn't considered cool?

    (I know her dad is English, btw)

    At least King & Porter have pauses to let you hear the cars go by.

    Eddie, please understand I'm trying to laugh with you here else it'll look like I'm attacking you. I'm not, I think you actually agree with my point and many, many others quotes could be examples. Spending the many hours AllLive offers listening to the same people is not natural and doesn't happen elsewhere. Take a break if it grates!

    I only gathered these as I had an entertaining skim through this thread because I've nothing better to do. Initially forum is praising WRC+ with a couple of live stages. Then AllLive launches, then it's mostly moaning, some about the customer and technical service, but also moaning about human beings just for existing. Just about everybody who has appeared on AllLive has had a ribbing here. The "skiing man", the "Citroen woman", the "Brazilian social media star", regulars Jon, Julian, Paul, Ben, Becs, Abi, Kiri, Molly, Colin, Mads, Kris, Marcus... comical really. Yes everyone can have their opinion but it's not always everything has to be shared - and I know I'm not immune.

    If anyone deserves a praise this weekend, it was Neil Cole, it was a pleasure having him back, also Imho Paul King does a better job as a stage end reporter than a commentator.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    I hadn't realised Neil Cole hadn't been involved in the WRC at all since 2013.
