BBC Debuts Female Commentator on MOTD

bbc match of the day

BBC’s Match of the Day this weekend will feature a first when female commentator Jacqui Oatley will cover the Fulham against Blackburn match.

She will be the first female commentator for MOTD in the 43 year history of the show. Read the article in The Daily Mail newspaper for some interesting comments by personalities within the football industry. Personally, I’m in favor of Jacqui commentating. It’s about time, really. Thanks to the EPL Talk reader Tokyo Toffeeman for the link.

    Gaffer, I agree in theory but after reading/listening to experts more familiar with Ms Oatley’s work (she is rated as a mediocre commentator at best) I fear she’s going to take a real shellacking in the media afterwards…
