I think all commentary is awful now, they spend most of the time trying to hype something that doesnt need hyping, I would much prefer a whimsical, anecdotal jovial style, like the good old Barry Davies. Someone needs to have some balls and be different and it could all change, as they are sheep. Networks are so desperate for faux passion though. It’s all too serious now.
Very eloquently put, that's exactly it.

I used to love Barry Davis during the World Cup group stages when you used to settle down to watch two nations you didn’t really know much about. It would be a masteclass of a soothing, relaxing commentary on what was happening, with a history lesson thrown in.

Mute button is very useful and only used when Sparks is commentating. If I thought she was any good at it I might just lower the volume instead, just as I do with other poor commentators, and of course pundits like Carragher.

Yep she is dreadful. I’m not sure who is worse though her or Micheal Owen. I simply can’t listen to him as says shit, ESPECIALLY if he is commentating on a Liverpool match.

Not sure you get him in The UK, unless he is doing the American Football commentary, which I believe maybe where he made his name.

He used to be on the BBC many years ago, doing football or cricket, possibly both. I used to get him & Pat Murphy mixed up.

It’s virtually scripted now anyway.

They sit down before hand and think of phrases for big moments and goals, in particular for certain players or the relevance of the occasion. Peter Drury is the worst for this.

The best style of commentary hands down is the South American and Mediterranean way.

I never get tired of hearing a ridiculously elongated pronunciation of “Goal!” following by several fast repetitions of said word.

I watched extended highlights on Youtube the other day of Argentina v Holland in WC 98 with Barry Davis commentating. It was a masterclass comnentry-wise crescendoing with his 'and Bergkamp has won it.' Lovely stuff.

Deliverooooo!!!

Do they really deliver all those different things at the same time? My only contact with them is when I am nearly run over by their idiot maniac riders. Are they simply people who were sacked by Dominos and too mad for Uber?

Really? I feel it would get repetitive and pretty annoying quite quickly.

Imagine if we'd had that instead of Tyler's bit of commentary when aguero won the title in the last second.

Been thinking of you and Peter, but wasn't sure where to post it (feeble excuse - sorry).
