Your Top Co-Commentators

Since we have a best commentators thread and someone jokingly mentioned Chris Waddle, I figured I'd start a thread for everyone's favourite co-commentators.

Mine top 10 is (in no order):
Efan Ekoku (PLP/ESPN), Paul Walsh (PLP/Sky), Craig Burley (PLP/ESPN), Stewart Robson (PLP/ESPN), Davie Provan (Sky), Andy Gray (Sky), Alan Smith (Sky), Mark Lawrenson (BBC), Robbie Mustoe (ESPN), Alan McInally (Sky)

So ESPN (US and UK combined) has 4 commentators, Sky has 5 and one from the BBC.

I don't personally think there are 30 co-commentators that are of a good enough standard. My favourites are Andy Gray, Garry Birtles, Jim Beglin, Chris Kamara, Chris Waddle, Craig Burley, Davie Provan, Tony Gale, Trevor Francis, Alan Smith and Andy Hinchcliffe. Outside of that group most co-commentators are inconsistent for me.

I realise you're scraping the barrell by including Gavin Peacock, who left football punditry over two years ago... but you managed to exclude Robbie Savage (shit as he is, he's more interesting than David Platt).

I'm a huge fan of Jo Royle, she's great

Seriously, please spell names correctly.

Andy Gray is the best.

I'm not a fan of many of them. I like Graham Taylor, and I've also got a fair bit of time for Garry Birtles, Jim Beglin, Davie Provan and Don Goodman.

Some are abysmal though.

It's nice to see Davie has 'Proven' himself eh?

Jimmy Armfield and Graham Taylor are my favourites on radio. I think Chris Waddle, Danny Mills, Pat Nevin and Craig Burley are good on that medium too.

Andy Gray was my favourite TV co-commentator. Now I like Davie Provan and Jim Beglin. I was impressed with Matt Le Tissier and Ray Wilkins from what I heard too. I've enjoyed hearing the likes of Gavin Peacock and Mick McCarthy in the past - and Ron Atkinson of course a decade or so ago!
