A tidy little article, a bit like the new website.

talkSPORT.co.uk "went live" at the back end of the week before last, although they officially launched it (or at least started referring to it on-air) last Monday.

It is an awful lot better than the previous talkSPORT.net effort, with it now offering an IPlayer-esque Listen Again feature, proper schedule and presenters pages as well as a commentary schedule page.

As I have noted over on DS though, the list of Premier League commentaries as posted on talkSPORT.co.uk differs somewhat to the list Stan Collymore posted on his Twitter account last month.

For those of you who have signed up for the talkSPORT Predictor game, you may have spotted that among the usual suspects taking listed in the talkSPORT Presenters League is Sky Sports News anchor Sam Matterface.

Now Sam used to report on games for talkSPORT a number of seasons ago before he joined SSN, so I wonder if this indicates that he may have a some sort of role in their Premier League coverage this season?

He presented an edition of Rock & Roll Football on Absolute at the back end of last season so you never know.

I notice from the talkSPORT Predictor game on the new talkSPORT.co.uk website, that among the usual suspects taking part in the talkSPORT Presenters League is Sky Sports News anchorman Sam Matterface.

I wonder if this indicates that he may have some sort of role in their Premier League coverage this season?

Sam reported on games for talkSPORT a number of seasons ago before joining SSN, presented an edition of Rock & Roll Football on Absolute last season and has been a regular Premier League Radio commentator in recent years.

I see the news article threads are merged into the main ones after they've been around for a little while, which explains why I have posted two similar messages one after the other. Sorry for repeating myself!

Yeah. Getting Aston Villa v West Ham days after MON has quit gives Absolute one of the games of the weekend, it's a great way for them to start their Premier League coverage and should attract a decent audience.

It's reminiscent of how talkSPORT got Newcastle United v Bolton Wanderers as their first ever national Premier League commentary in 2007/08 after Sam Allardyce had taken over at St James' Park, only arguably even better.

New season, new competitors, same old 5 Live tactic. Will they ever go back to hosting their Saturday shows from one of their live games or Television Centre? :-(

It's been posted by talkSPORT reporter Dave Rowe over on DS that Nigel Pearson has stepped down from his role as talkSPORT's Premier League commentator due to mounting commitments elsewhere (he's a contracted Sky Sports speedway and darts commentator, the chairman of the Dudley Heathens speedway team and has recently become a father for the second time).

Nigel will still be reporting into Matchday Live and Kick-Off and will be used as cover for other commentators, but his five year run as a regular talkSPORT commentator is over. Along with the departure of Jim Proudfoot, this provides a great opportunity for other commentators to step up to the mark.

I know Shaun and others have since answered your question, but it's worth pointing out that in future if you/we/anyone wants to know commentary and reporting details from Radio 5 Live, you can always listen again online via the IPlayer.

The BBC archives 5 Live Sport online, and this seems to have been extended to include match commentaries - the Community Shield, Cardiff v Sheffield United and England v Hungary are among those currently on there - so all the coverage details from any particular day or night should be available on there for seven days after they air.

The same applies to most BBC local stations, I'm not sure if they are allowed to archive commentary but if you know which shows also contain details of the reporters (for instance BBC WM's midweek football commentators and reporters tend to be on in the final hour of the Paul Franks drivetime show on matchnights) you should be able to track them down.

talkSPORT have also recently launched a listen again feature, which I found very helpful when getting details of their football coverage last Saturday, and I believe their parent company UTV Radio are looking at setting up a listen again feature for their local stations as well.

I'm not sure about other local commercial stations, but I know the Orion Media Midlands stations around here do club-specific football podcasts that include "match highlights" which detail who their commentators on each game were.

To it put it simply, if you ever miss any details of radio football coverage which you'd like to find out, the internet is your friend. :-)

Sam Matterface will be doing commentary alongside Stan Collymore on Chelsea v West Bromwich Albion for talkSPORT this Saturday night, with this game being their first 5.30pm commentary of the new season.

There's no Sunday game this week, but if this is to be a permanent thing then it looks like Sam will be talkSPORT's regular Premier League commentator on Saturdays at 5.30pm and Sundays at 1.30pm, seeing as Ian Danter is continuing as the presenter of Football First on Sunday, Jim Proudfoot has left the station and Nigel Pearson is stepping down from doing football commentaries on a regular basis. I'm unsure if he'll be able to be their Champions League commentator though, what with his Sky Sports News presenting commitments during the week.

Sam has pretty much confirmed that he's joining talkSPORT on Twitter - well, sort of - when replying to a Tweet from talkSPORT's Geoff Peters yesterday.
