I'm not a huge fan of Darke either, he is passable I guess but its McManaman who drives me nuts.

He is fine for the EPL, but I have problems with Darke doing international games, he is such a homer for the USA since the 2010 World Cup and during the Euros such an England homer too (yeah he criticized them a lot but he definetely got tingly everytime they scored ).

His knowledge outside of the EPL + Barca/Real seems limited which was shown in the Euro broadcast. Best example I can think of was the Dutch goalkeeping situation, he was surprised Stekelenburg was chosen ahead of Vorm and Krul (two EPL goalkeepers)...ummm hello Stekelenburg has been their #1 for years!
