    For all you Arlo fan boys on this site, go the Liverpool – Man City game and start at 60:50, and watch how he utterly destroys the next 35 seconds of great drama.

    He is an “all about me” embarrassment.

    C’mon NBC. There’s a stable of quality voices out there who understand we are watching television, not listening to the radio.

      I agree with you, Arlo White is terrible. Also, the 3 men in the commentary booth is not working either. NBC, Please hire somebody else and while you’re at it, please for once stop having commercials running on top of the screen. 3 minutes into the game on Sunday, there was a Mercedes Benz commercial running while the clock disappeared, followed by other commercials.
      NBC Sports simply refuses to be professional.

        Would you rather they run actual commercials during the match? How else do you propose they “pay the bills”? They paid over a billion dollar for a sport that has constant action. Not sure a better way to try to make back some of that $$$.

        It’s not like to stuff they run off the score bug takes away from the match. I sometimes think people just complain for the sake of complaining.

    For completeness, the world feed comms for Liverpool v Man City is Peter Drury and Jim Beglin.

    Another useful “open source” is the Twitter feed for Derek Rae:

    @Raecomm

    Mr. Rae will host studio shows for Premier League on NBC Sports Group between January 30 and February 26 inclusive, while Rebecca Lowe and Liam McHugh are on assignment at the Olympic Winter Games in the Republic of Korea.

      Where have you seen that Derek Rae will be the studio host while Rebecca is in Korea? I’m guessing that you’re making that up – as usual.

      You may fool some of these noobs with your bullsh&&, but you’re not fooling me.

      Didn’t we have a bet that you lost (obviously) – and it meant you were going to go away.

        I jumped the gun on Derek Rae filling in for Rebecca Lowe and Liam McHugh as host of Premier League studio shows on NBC Sports Group in February.

        Mr. Rae will host Premier League studio shows the mid-week round of January 30-31. Those are the only dates confirmed by Mr. Rae via the “open source” @Raecomm Twitter feed.

        Changing the subject: the announcer known in the U.S. as the “voice of the Women’s World Cup” (he called the final in 1999 and 2015, both won by the USWNT), John Paul “JP” DellaCamera, turned 66 on January 11. A belated “happy birthday” to JP.

        JP was on the call (for ESPN) of Trinidad vs USMNT WCQ on November 19, 1989, featuring “the shot heard around the world”. US Soccer Federation posted this 5-minute highlight clip of the match (as well as the lead story on the 6:30pm Eastern Time edition of SportsCenter anchored by Bob Ley) on YouTube:

        youtu.be/6nrG2RlufTw

        Interestingly, FOX Sports announced on January 10 that Big Ten Network president Mark Silverman will also be in charge of FS1 and FS2, replacing the disgraced Jamie Horowitz who was ousted last July amid sexual harrassment allegations.

        The elevation of Mr. Silverman to FOX Sports National Networks president has the following soccer TV implication:

        If and when JP DellaCamera decide to step down as the voice of the Women’s World Cup final (either after 2019 or after 2013) then there is at least a 95% probability that JP’s eventual successor will be the commentator who presumably will call FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup matches on FS2 in August 2018, as well as the apparent #3 play-by-play voice (behind JP and NWSL pxp announcer Jenn Hildreth) of 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019 on FOX Sports (i.e. FS1 & FS2):

        http://www.youtu,be/r8EC8C8T1XA

        Mark Silverman assigned Lisa Byington to call 3 College (American) Football games on Big Ten Network in 2017, starting with Northwestern vs Bowling Green on September 16:

        youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOrWhdV1HXx9ple2-SPw0D5e26qL3eSEh

        Silverman will likely assign Byington to call at least one CFB game on Big Ten Network in 2018: Northwestern vs Akron on September 15.

        Mark Silverman is by far the biggest supporter of Lisa Byington inside the FOX Sports (U.S.) organization, as evidenced by the increase in the number of men’s college basketball games on FS1 that Byington is calling in 2017-2018 (she is usually paired with Stephen Bardo.) Byington was also assigned to the Michigan State-Michigan CBB game on FOX Network (as a sideline reporter) on January 14.

      No. NBCSN will take the Premier League Productions World Feed for Monday night matches. Martin Tyler and Danny Higginbottom usually calls those matches.

      NBCSN will also use its backup studio host, Liam McHugh, to host Monday night Premier League matches that kick off at 2000 London Time (1500 New York/1200 Los Angeles). The primary host of Premier League on NBCSN, Rebecca Lowe, no longer hosts studio shows for Monday night matches because she lives in Northern California Gold Country, 2500 miles (4000 km) from the studio of NBC Sports Group in Stamford, Connecticut (near New York City). Ms. Lowe lives in Northern California because her husband Paul Buckle is the head coach of Sacramento Republic FC of United Soccer League (Division 2 Professional soccer.) She generally commutes from Sacramento to New York on a redeye flight on Thursday night/Friday morning and returns home on Sunday night.

    Guys who will be commentators for world feed spurs v Everton?

    • Oliver Tse

      January 13, 2018 at 7:05 am

      Jon Champion and Jim Beglin will call Tottenham v Everton for Premier League Productions World Feed.

      For future reference, Twitter is a very useful “open source”:

      @JonChampionJC
      @JimBeglin
