Tip for Supporters of Premier League Clubs Who Love Listening to Commentaries

Screen Shot 2012 10 20 at 8.06.47 AM Tip for Supporters of Premier League Clubs Who Love Listening to Commentaries

You may have missed the news, but recently talkSPORT this season has been broadcasting live commentaries of every single Premier League match to listeners outside Europe.

talkSPORT has aggressively expanded their coverage. But one of the new facets of their live commentaries, which is incredibly useful, is the ability to listen to their commentaries directly via Twitter.

As seen in the above screenshot, just by clicking the ‘View Media’ button, you can listen to a commentary that’s in your Twitter feed.

To see the tweets, be sure to follow @talkSPORTLive. Or you can listen to the commentaries directly via the TalkSport website at

The quality of the commentaries aren’t as good as they could be. This isn’t Martin Tyler or Gary Neville. But it’s a useful resource depending on how you listen to matches online.

    Gaffer, do they use the matchday reporters that do the updates on the national station here?

    • The Gaffer says:

      Good question. Perhaps one of the other readers can better answer this one. To be honest, I don’t know.

      I’ve listened to several talkSPORT commentaries, but haven’t been able to recognize many of the voices.

      The Gaffer

        I’ll sign up and find out. The missus used to cover Port Vale (spit) with Simon Humphreys who does their matchday stuff. He’s gone from League’s 1 & 2 to covering Premier League and European matches. He’s worked with Stan Collymore and Sam Matterface as their touchline reporter. Be interested to know if he’s gone global!

        Love listening to radio commentary for most sports. In my opinion it takes more skill than talking about a televised game.

    I’ve listened to two talkSPORT matches recently and both were great. One I listened to while watching ESPN3 and the sync was almost perfect.

  3. NeilO says:

    They have a cool ‘predict the game’ contest too.

  4. Leafsfan305 says:

    It is a useful service, but the quality of the commentary is uneven. It certainly isn’t up to the standard of the BBC radio commentators. But given that those commentaries are unavailable outside the UK, this is a good alternative.

    I’ve wondered if the Talksport commentators are actually in the stadiums or calling the games off monitors. I could be wrong, but they have the feel of being called from a studio somewhere.
