commentators are twats - a compendium of the stupidest comments this world cup

Peter Drury: "that brings Klose to within 4 goals of Gerd Muller's world cup record, who would have been his hero growing up"

erm, would that be Miroslav Klose, the polish national, who lived in poland until the age of seven, speaks polish at home, and who looked up to Zbigniew Boniek, poland's best player while he was growing up?

At the German's last (I think) corner, last night....

"Philip Lahm swings the ball in"

Errr... Schweinsteiger. The guys who's been wearing the #7 shirt ALL night, has taken every set piece... :facepalm:

back on the other side
mick mcarthy - classic in tongihts italy match.
"theres just no urgency here. they should play the free kick short" - cue paraguay taking their time and scoring from the free kick.
followed by a replay of the goal in which he says "its a poor ball this" and giving no credit to Alcaraz for a great climb and a hard header, instead moaning about everything and everyone.

hard to beat that. well done mick

to be fair in that reply he thought he was talking about a later free kick not the one where the goal was scored , which he did actually say when he realised it was the goal scoring free kick.

A successful virus clinging to a speck of mud.
On Australian tv during the Holland vs Denmark match:

"Of course the Dutch will feel very much at home here because
of the Boer settlers all those years ago".

The worst part of the world cup so far is having to look at ex-commentator Motson's face all the bloody time. I always preferred him when I couldn't see him. So, there's a sort of commentator fuck up of sorts.

shut it you egg!
i think david pleat said something last night about "that's the velocity that goalkeepers need at this level" when the paraguay keeper made a save after his earlier gaff, in reference to maintaining concentration?! the velocity????? :confused:

mccarthy yesterday - "this is what i call 'parasite football'"...

you what?

drury is consistently awful, he thinks he's some sort of poet and comes out with all sort of UTTER SHIT that he's dreamt up before the game and attempts to shoehorn in at any opportunity :mad:

found out last night that for bbc games, you can press the red button and opt to listen to radio five commentary which is much better imo.

even tho i criticised pleat above, he did give some good tactical analysis of what was taking place, and david oates and conor macnamara commentating were much more enjoyable to listen to to jonathon whats-his-gob and moaning mick mcarthy.

Martin Keown was just said the reason the crowds are poor for the earlier games is because the locals dont get up early enough!!!! Then he whined on about how long his days are.

Shame.

As the Argentina v Nigeria game kicked off the commentator offered this helpful tip:

'Argentina are the ones wearing blue & white'

:D

Embrace the confusion!
Alan Green though :(
Alan Green knows his stuff and does commentate well in many ways. On the other hand he is a miserable git who has the shadow of racism hanging over him.

(from Wiki)

Green was censured by Ofcom in October 2004 after he made a comment deemed in breach of the regulator's Code on Standards live on-air about Manchester United's Cameroonian midfielder Eric Djemba-Djemba, implying he may be speaking pidgin English with the referee

He had previously described Manchester City's Chinese defender Sun Jihai as wearing shirt "Number 17 -- that'll be the Chicken Chow Mein, then" during a live radio broadcast.

to be fair, its pretty much the perfect job, and one that I bet i could do quite well. All you have to do is do some research about the players and games etc, look at the game and remark on what is happening, and it doesn't really matter if you talk bollocks because everyone expects that anyway.

i know someone who works for five live, he did the spain match today, the italy match on monday(?), and his opening match was south korea v greece which must have been a nightmare of pronounciation....:D

Davie Moyes (I think) on 5Live: "Is Mexico v Uruguay a derby?" in manner of clearly not knowing where Uruguay is. Other than that he's been pretty good.
