A comprehensive guide to English soccer TV commentators and co-commentators

 

CLIVE TYLDESLEY

Tyldesley has been a regular commentator for ITV since 1998, following the retirement of Brian Moore, and has called 17 Champions League finals and nine FA Cup finals for the network. While he has his critics, Tyldesley has won the Royal Television Society Sports Commentator of the Year award four times since 1998. The Manchester United fan as a child provides solid match analysis while at the helm for ITV.

 

MARTIN TYLER

Also one of the most respected play-by-play men in the world, Tyler was voted as the Premier League Commentator of the Decade by fans in 2003. Arsenal fans will always remember Tyler’s call on Tony Adams’ goal in the north London team’s win over Everton in 1998. Tyler exclaimed, “and it’s Tony Adams put through by Steve Bould… would you believe it?!” The famous phrase was later put up on a wall at Emirates Stadium.

 

GARY WEAVER

Weaver is another TV soccer commentator who may be more well known from his radio work than behind the mic on TV. He commentated Manchester United games for Century FM, but now can be heard doing Premier League matches for the international feed each weekend.

 

ARLO WHITE

White, Ted Lasso’s “favorite lead commentator,” has been NBC Sports Network’s head play-by-play man for the Premier League since the beginning of the 2013-14 campaign. Prior to working Premier League matches for NBC, the Leicester native was the voice of the Seattle Sounders and called matches during the 2012 Olympic Games for the American network. White’s “golden, velvety, yummy” voice makes him one of the better commentators on television.

 

 

Co-Commentators:

 

CLIVE ALLEN

The former Tottenham Hotspur centre forward offers a no-nonsense style of commentating. The East End-born co-commentator has an unmistakable voice, with his gruff, East End (London) accent. The well-traveled professional has managed Tottenham (as a caretaker manager), as well as playing for numerous clubs during his playing career.

 

WARREN BARTON

The cheery Londoner co-commentates games for FOX Sports now and again when he isn’t doing his studio work. The former footballer used to play for Newcastle United, as he regularly reminds his audience. 

 

JIM BEGLIN

As a former Ireland and Liverpool player, Beglin’s voice may be familiar to most readers from the video game Pro Evolution Soccer (PES). Recently, Beglin has announcing games now and again for NBCSN to help fill in for Arlo White.
