    Because Don and John were doing the game for PLTV, while Prodfoot was doing the game for world feed, then Bill lesley also did the game for SKY.

      Both Jim Proudfoot$Matt Holland AND John Dykes$ Don Hutchinson were doing the game for the international world feed, its just the other one were in Goal rush and the other in field.

    I wonder how John dykes & Don was commentating at Everton & Spurs instead of Proudfoot and Hollard???? What happened?


      August 17, 2016 at 8:48 am

      It was a goal rush, so they use a commentator who is in studio rather than a commentator on the field….But on the Saturday premier league review, you will hear Proudfoot and Hollard
