It’s on ITV but It won’t be Tyldesley as he’s been replaced by Sam Matterface as the lead ITV commentator so he’ll do the England games.By far the best pairing for commentary at the euros, ally really has a nack for it, he is just a really likeable bloke. Hopefully the commentary team for Friday not sure which channel it's on.
Think Clive mentioned the other week that the games were being done from a studio in Manchester. At least the ITV ones are.Sure I heard Ally saying he is doing the Poland game tonight aswell.
Are they actually at the games because I’m sure Ally was in the studio at Talksport this morning?
STV and it won't have Ally on it so it will probably be Sturgeon on comms with The Proclaimers as the co-commentators knowing that channel
Sometimes when out and about in the car I listen to Talksport coms of EPL games. If it’s Matterface he can talk for minutes at a time about anything other than the game.There is a significant gulf in quality between Tyldesley and Matterface.
I think Champion is on networks in the US? possibly ESPNI don't like Tyldsley commentary, never did (regardless of his connection to us).
Jon Champion and Mccoist is a far, far better combination.
Given the brilliant feedback they got in Russia i am at a loss as to why ITV would throw that away and put in Clive, who they only let go as their lead commentator a year ago.
TV networks seem to think well informed, intelligent commentary is 'niche' and that the majority of fans are idiots who just want to hear 90 minutes of meaningless platitudes. Presumably also why James Richardson has never been a mainstay of football TV in the UK.
Yes mate exactly, but he seems to be a poster boy for a new style of commentary.Sometimes when out and about in the car I listen to Talksport coms of EPL games. If it’s Matterface he can talk for minutes at a time about anything other than the game.
I don’t give a flying one about your heated blanket mate I’ve got a coupon on and would like to know what’s happening in the game you can see and I can’t.
