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.

Arlo White Wiki Page

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.

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.

Started out as students protesting against metro ticket price rises on Friday and quickly got out of hand. Metro stations destroyed, widespread looting and burning of supermarkets and other buildings. State of emergency declared and for me that meant all domestic flights cancelled for 3 days now

When listening to the BBC World Service as I sometimes do when doing a long drive, there is something I'm finding irritating about the presenters of late... well a couple of things actually.

1) It maybe the sound engineers fault, the mics they use or they all have lung diseases, but when whoever is talking starts a new sentence there is the sound of a sharp intake of breath boarding on a gasp. It's not just one person or one time, but all the time and most of the presenters including the news readers.

2) Is one of the criteria to be a BBC World Service presenter to have a strong regional accent? No one seems to have the old fashioned BBC accentless accent anymore, but an annoying Northern, Irish or Scottish accent. Even a South of Watford accent seems over the top under the circumstances.

As you were...

I hate the catch all phrase ‘.... is a thing’ as I see it as a dumbing down of attempting to explain something, it has caught on and see it everywhere. Its doublespeak in the idea that in 1984 the government impose doublespeak (among other reasons) to reduce vocabulary and therefore reduce concepts and thinking by removing words, and also having words have several meanings which again reduce the cognitive power of the masses. (Orwell is an absolute genius) Im not saying this been imposed but more a social phrase that has become popular, but it is doublespeak non-the-less.

Sports commentators/presenters banging on about how many goals a team have scored.

'2nd from bottom Norwich have scored more goals this season than 8th placed Sheffield United & even 6th place Palace'

Completely relevant if the table was ordered by 'Goals scored'. It's not, it's based on points gained. Hence, a 2-1 win is infinitely preferable than a 5-3 defeat.....

I'd given them the benefit of the doubt and assumed that they were Diwali lights. No-one surely puts Christmas decorations up before Halloween?!!!

I like it and even eat it dry on it's own sometimes

The family that live opposite us have one of those appalling illuminated "Santa Please Stop Here" signs up outside their house, and they NEVER EVER take it down.

They just unplug it from the mains at the end of the Christmas season, and leave it tacked up on the window frame, ready to plug it in again 11 months later on...

It's just a string of lights.

I'm more intrigued by the 2 iPads they have taped to the front door.

Out of shot is a palm tree that has lights wrapped around it too
