Does he leave Sky, where he’s undoubtedly the number football commentator, to move to Setanta to launch their Premiership coverage in the UK?What it does say about Setanta is that they’re serious about having a quality product to offer UK residents starting next season. If the Irish company is able to acquire Tyler, this will go down as a massive coup. Is there a more famous football commentator in the world right now?
