Commentators Thread Part 6

Good god Farrar and Rosenior are terrible. At halftime Farrar says it's been entertaining only to pull a complete 180 as to what really happened, and then properly say the game has been awful.

Rosenior is totally incoherent and a rambling mess.

Mind you, I don't have Fox Soccer anymore so I'm not sure the alternative is any better.

Supposedly the FSC commentator were calling Charlie Adam = Adams, and called Pacheco = Aquilani, and gave no lineup in the beginning of the broadcast.

Liverpool's 2nd half lineup according to FSC.

I guess we have 2 Spearing's in the team. Oh dear.

Having watched the newest Premier League Years for last season, I have to say what a strong season Martin Tyler had. Strings of incredible goal calls and numerous big games with it. Really shows his worth as Sky number 1.

The programme itself though isn't as good as the older ones. Many games are cut short, some goals aren't even bothered to be shown and the news parts for each month is lessened too. It used to use alot of the charts music for that year too, but that was less, as was Georgie Thompsons speaking parts, although that is probably due to F1 commitments. Come to think of it, with the amount they seemed to cut out, I don't actually know what they left in? It's the first time they didn't mention the Champions League too, and that's despite Chelsea winning it. In previous years they showed the winning goals from the Final. I did notice they didn't cut out goal calls for Andy Gray and Ian Darke own video package segments.

I agree, the programme was just another run of the mill compilation. It was like this last year too. The news part of each month added so much to the nostalgic feel of the programme and made it stand out from other review shows. This may as well have been a 2 hour Netbusters.

There were also only a couple of glimpses of the studio stuff and Ed Chamberlin's voice wasn't even heard until the final 15 minutes. I was hoping at least one analysis section from G Nev on MNF would have been included seeing as it was so strong but nothing. And only a couple of the intro VTs too, always a highlight on this show.

Perhaps the early ones are much better because there wasn't millions of hours of footage available; only selected games had 'live standard' camera coverage and commentary, unlike now when every single game does.

Just to let you guys know. not sure about Virgin, but SKY have 24 Olympic channels starting from CH 450 onwards. On there they will have all the football matches for Wednesday and Thursday and i'm guessing for the rest of the Olympics as well.

We've got them on Virgin Media too, just 100 channels higher up the list on Channel 550 onwards!

Will be at work tomorrow when it is on, so I'll post now.

2012 Olympic Women's Football - Canada vs. Japan - TSN and Sportsnet (in Canada)
James Duthie and Jennifer Hedger (CTV's Daytime hosts) will present with Kara Lang in London. Commentators are Gerry Dobson and Jason de Vos, both of whom are in Toronto.

No better way to get the Olympic spirit/atmosphere to come across than to have your commentators in a studio on a different continent some 6000km away.

And for those who only have freeview, you will have four channels to choose from.

BBC3 will be broadcasting 24 hours a day during the Olympics and will be the "second channel" for sport. Apart from overruns, the intention is that BBC2 will only be covering for BBC1 when the news is on (there's some technical issue that BBC2 cannot have regional optouts so the news has to stay on BBC1).

There's also a second red button channel on 302 but you might need to rescan your box if you can't find it.

Possibly but he is commentated on the Women's Football in Coventry this evening between Sweden and South Africa women, I think it was Alistair Mann was on the first game in Coventry.

The match between North Korea and Colombia has been delayed until 20:50 due the Stadium big screens showing the South Korean flag with the team line ups. The BBC have cut to a stationary shot of the pitch and there is no commentary, presumably until the game begins


And commentary is provided by John Roeder so it seems despite back to back games at most grounds the BBC are using two separate teams for each game with lesser games having one commentator (ones shown on BBC Olympics channel 2 and 3 this evening) and games on BBC One and BBC Three and HD Channel having two coms

Steve Wilson will be at OT for Uruguay v UAE, the Radio Times lists Pearce + Lawrenson for all the GB mens group matches.

Was in Falkirk today visiting family and just decided to go to the game, as it was pay at the gate, Lovely stadium there when you see it from the inside.
