jp dellacamera Interview with JP Dellacamera

This week’s episode of the EPL Talk Podcast features an exclusive interview with legendary U.S. soccer commentator JP Dellacamera.

Dellacamera previews this week’s Champions League Final (where he’ll be hosting the pre-game show starting at 2pm ET on ESPN2 on Wednesday). During the podcast interview, we take a walk down memory lane and get his thoughts on how big indoor soccer was in America, his most memorable moments as a soccer commentator, what is was like working the 1999 Champions League final when Man United overcame the odds and won it 2-1 at the end, and much more.

    JP Dellacamera is an embarrassment to US Soccer. He’s in the same category as Dave whats his name that did the world cup games with Marcelo Balboa. He has nothing interesting to say so he says everything in that over the top ultra-dramatic commentator voice. Thank God for Telemundo!

    I kind of liked him as a commentator. I used to enjoy listening to him and Seamus Malin on ESPN, doing World Cup and Champions League coverage.

    The problem I have with JP is his lack of descriptive terms for the game. I might as well be watching the NBA. He may have all the experience in the world but not one that comes across well to his audience.
    “Draws the foul” translates to “wins the free kick”
    “Denied” translates to “cut out / blocked”
    “Drills it” translates to “shoots from distance”
    “Puts it up there” translates to “floated cross into the box”
    “Go ahead goal” translates to “I’m watching the wrong game”. JP obviously does not watch any EPL games because it night and day on how he calls the games. Fire him before we get to the World Cup !!!
