Ian Wright’s Embarrassing Commentary Against Chelsea Fans On FOX Soccer Sours A Brilliant Game

Overall, this was a much improved commentary by Johnson, but he was undermined today by Ian Wright letting his Arsenal allegiances get the better of him. Even still, Johnson’s commentary is still nowhere near the level of competence that a typical commentary for a FA Cup, Premier League or Champions League game provides.

If this experiment is to continue, FOX needs to find a more competent co-commentator. Wright is a liability with the things he says. Warren Barton has improved. Lee Dixon was better than I expected, while Ray Clemence was good at analyzing the game from a goalkeeper’s perspective, but I still feel they haven’t found someone who is a perfect match yet. Wright has been the closest so far, until he opened his mouth and said things that you’d expect a pundit such as Piers Morgan to say. Personally I’d like to see Stewart Robson paired up with Johnson to see if that improves the broadcast.

There were things to be positive about today, but overall it’s still a shame that FOX Sports has decided to change its winning formula of providing the world commentary feed, which has been more than adequate for 16 years.
