    If Mark Lazarus doesn’t appear on this site at least cm asia still has that biscuit to console himself with..

    Burnsey, you are 100% right.

    Judging by the number of “Thumbs Down” here on anti-Arlo comments, there must be a bunch of Arlo Fanboys.

    I’d love just one of them to take a minute and write something positive about him.
    Maybe we’re missing something, although I doubt it.

    PS: Lee Dixon continues to shine. He’s one of the best analysts I’ve heard on any network.

      Is there much difference between a fan boy and someone who complains about the same guy every week? Both are equally obnoxious, he’s obviously not going anywhere so get over it or mute, watch a pirate feed, go outside etc. Mark Lazarus is not going to come on this site and see CM Asia’s comments and make a phone call to have him removed.

      • burnsey

        December 22, 2016 at 5:52 pm

        That’s what they said about Gus Johnson, and look how that turned out. Fair play if you like Arlo; to each his own. I personally don’t know anyone who enjoys his style, and we have a really large group of EPL followers. For us, he ruins the game.

    Arlo is way over the top…non stop talking and hyping. He now has developed this habit that once the game starts, he talks non-stop for 3-4 minutes analyzing the game. Why? We have just watched the pregame for 30 minutes. We don’t need to get another analysis….the game is going on….so annoying.

    In World Feed:

    Martin Tyler will be commentator Match of Everton vs Liverpool and Peter Drury will be commentator the two matches: West Bromwich vs Man United and Man City vs Arsenal

    • Weber Niraechtoe

      December 17, 2016 at 10:27 am

      how to watch world feed? Btw, stupid decision to let Tyler commentate Merseyside derby, He is either a United or Arsenal fan, maybe I am wrong, but he really dislikes Liverpool, watch Iiv 4-3 Arsenal this season opener on sky. He reacts like nothing happens when Liverpool scored these goals.

      • Christopher Harris

        December 17, 2016 at 12:19 pm

        If you live in the US, we get the world feed for the commentators except for the games where NBC Sports has their own commentators (Arlo White, Steve Bower, Graeme Le Saux and Lee Dixon).

        • Jon

          December 17, 2016 at 5:30 pm

          If you live in Canada you can often choose either the NBC feed or the World Feed (on Sportsnet or Sportsnet World). I avoided Drury today for West Brom/ManU but someone who likes him and doesn’t like Arlo could do the opposite. Quite a nice setup.

        • Weber Niraechtoe

          December 18, 2016 at 11:21 am

          So every single time there is no Peter Drury. Arlo White isn’t the worst tbf though.

      • The happy one

        December 17, 2016 at 2:15 pm

        You can get it through illegal streaming if you live in states. The other countries like Australia, they do use world feed for every game.

          December 18, 2016 at 11:22 am

          What channel shall I use? Bein 11?

        Weber Niraechtoe

        I am subscriber of beIN SPORTS and these channels have the broadcast rights to show ALL 380 English Premier League matches live in middle east and north africa with World feed

        And Jon champion was the commentator match of Arsenal vs Liverpool in the first week not martin tyler.

        • Weber Niraechtoe

          December 18, 2016 at 11:21 am

          Tyler was on sky sports 1 for that game

        • Ameen

          December 19, 2016 at 12:58 pm

          Can anyone subscribe to Bein sports from anywhere in the world? or just in middle east and north africa? I live in the United States, and I tried using VPN but it didnt work.

          • Christopher Harris

            December 19, 2016 at 1:20 pm

            You can only subscribe to the streaming and TV providers available legally to you in your country.

        December 17, 2016 at 5:34 pm

        Weber, Martin Tyler reacts like nothing happened when anyone scores.:) Still think he’s class, though.

        • Weber Niraechtoe

          December 18, 2016 at 11:22 am

          I just don’t like him because he doesn’t like Liverpool lol

    I see they continue to stuff Swansea City down our throats…

    Triple Arlo! You couldn’t ask for anything better! Yeah, the best announcer around!

    An Arlo Hat Trick.

    Good God.

    Maybe by Monday, he’ll be hoarse.

    LeSaux and Dixon have the best job in all of sports broadcasting. A great seat and they never get to say a word.
    I wonder if they wear earplugs to keep out the “noise”.

    Certainly, the Suits at NBC must see – and hear – how much better guys like Bower, Champion, and Mann are by comparison.

    • Mad About ManU Mourinho

      December 17, 2016 at 12:23 am

      Here, have a biscuit.

      • Jon

        December 17, 2016 at 5:31 am

        I generally like Arlo but surely one of the producers could tell him to give the others a chance to speak once in a while, since they often have excellent insights. Just letting the action speak for itself on occasion wouldn’t hurt either.

      • cm asia

        December 17, 2016 at 2:05 pm

        Excellent snark!

        But just once, please tell us why you’re an Arlo fanboy.
