    was John with Jim Beglin today for Saints game?

  4. Weber Niraechtoe

    December 30, 2017 at 12:34 pm

    Does Tony Jones have a voice…….? Like what? Watch the highlights of Watford vs Swansea and I wonder if PL can find someone that can actually speak the whole 90 minute period to commentate…

      Tony Jones and David Pleat call World Feeds for all UEFA club Finals.

      Jones is tolerable. Very basic, bare-bones commentary. Just the names of the players touching the ball.

      Pleat’s “signal-to-noise ratio” is less than 50% so he is not everyone’s cup of tea.

      FOX Sports (USA.) only uses the the World Feed for the UEFA Super Cup.

    Eh No Peter and Jon on Saturday?

    • Weber Niraechtoe

      December 30, 2017 at 12:33 pm

      Jon is on ManU vs Southampton on world feed.

    Thanks but you failed to update us from the last two matchdays(gameweek)

      Correct. I was away on vacation, so I wasn’t able to copyedit the lists and publish them in time (I was without Internet access overseas). Normal business has resumed, though, don’t worry.

        How dare you have a life outside of work!

        [this list of who’s commentating is superb – a big virtual beer to your good self]
