Favourite commentators and pundits Male ( and female? )

Showing my vintage and preferred eras but for me no one surpasses the commentary of the great Brian Mooore ( 70s vintage )

Also special mention for Barry Davies, Clive Tyldesley, Alan Parry and Jonathan Pearce. Although he was very knowledgeable, I wasnt so keen on John 'Motty' Motson.

As for ' pundits' and ' analysts' there are very few good ones that come to mind : possibly Danny Murphy, Jaime Carragher and Alan Hansen are the better ones (a Liverpool hatrick)

As for the ladies Gabby Yorath ( Logan) was a competent presenter for MOTD.

I remember my dad waking me on Saturday night to come downstairs for MOD in late 60s. Even remember 1966! Wolstenhome was great, . You are right about BrianMoore, another good one was Sunday afternoon ITV with Hugh Johns.

And two from a different era, Wolsteholme and Coleman.

Oh yes 1970

great shout

I loved Hugh Johns : super. expressive enthusiastic tone of voice and commentary content 👍😊.

John Helm.

John Helm's sensitive commentary at the Bradford v Lincoln game when the terrible fire was starting, won him a Broadcasting Award. David Coleman, the Commentator for our FA Cup winning Final was class. A true professional.

I had lunch with John Motson

Thought he was a lovely bloke and his passion Nd knowledge for the game really shines was a great lunch and a pleasure.

Yes Bright and LUFCfeath John Helm : a very good choice also.

And without question LUFCfeath David Coleman class : "Clarke One Nil"

Coleman was also excellent as the original presenter of Question of Sport which was hugely popular.

Barry Davies all the way for me.

With that in mind can anyone remember his commentary where he said "Look at his face, just look at his face! Who was he talking about?

07 Jan 2021 19:37:51
Alan Partridge 😆.

2 sheds From memory, I believe it was Mickey Thomas. Am I correct?

07 Jan 2021 20:10:16
No idea George, that's why I was asking :-)

Just found it on youtube, it was Francis (diver) Lee scoring a 20yds screamer for Derby County v Man City in 1974.

Lots of the old school ones mentioned above.
I actually like having Beglin when he is part of the team on games.

Brian Moore was my least favourite. Every goal was either "great" or "fantastic". I wrote to him once on 'The Big Match' requesting some screamers from Lorimer. He was so lazy, he just showed a couple of tap ins and his goals in Leeds 5-2 home win v Leicester from 1974 (? ) , one of which was a penalty.
