Who Chooses the Commentators for Sky Matches ?

Posted by admin

I have no idea who is responsible for choosing who commentates on which match for Sky but I really don’t think a lot of thought goes into it.  Anybody that has any awareness at all of the football fans thought patterns would be aware that having a former player from one of the teams taking part is going to alienate and irritate half of the viewing audience.  I wonder how many Spurs fans where last night telling Alan ‘Smudger’ Smith how to pronounce his ‘r’s in no uncertain terms for a full 120 minutes.

With the fierce rivalry between the two clubs it is particularly thoughtless to put him on this match. I am very surprised that he gets so many Spurs games to commentate on anyway as he is always going to be unpopular with Spurs fans. Not for any other reason than he is ever associated with Arsenal and that is not good.  To be fair to him he hides his bias better than some.

I know we are going to have to put up with the  smugness of Andy Gray for ever but we can shove Smudger off to Fulham or Aston Villa matches without any major upheaval surely.

Spurs 3 Spurs Rejects { Fulham} 1

Posted by admin

For all the first half the 5 Spurs rejects and their pals were by far the better team.  Their neat passing and organised structure made them look dangerous going forward and untroubled in defence.  Damien Duff was excellent but ex Spurs Danny Murphy and Simon Davies were in control of the centre while Zamora looked menacing up front before putting Fulham ahead in the 17th minute.  Spurs offered only the predictable punt towards Crouch as their best effort at attacking.  It didn’t look like it could work.

     At half time Harry Redknapp made brave decisions and took off Kranjcar whose touch had let him down several times and Assou Ekotto who was also struggling with his decision making.  They were exactly the right choices to come off introducing Huddlestone and Bentley in their place.  Redknapp is often slow to make changes but on this occasion was spot on with Bentley scoring from a free kick with his very first touch.  Corluka was another one not on his game and luckily his ineptitude served to confuse Schwarzer in the Fulham goal allowing Bentleys cross to drift in between  them both into the net.  Another brave substitution followed as the injured Corluka was replaced by Pavlyuchenko in a very attacking move.  It was rewarded almost instantly when SuperPav swept home Bentleys cross to the back post with style and a smile. The crowd just love SuperPav.  Spurs were suddenly purring , playing football that was nowhere to be seen in the first half. Now it was Fulham who looked lost.  Spurs third goal was the goal of the game with some sweet interpassing started by Gudjonssen and also finished by him.  Bentley was excellent as was Bale again for Tottenham and Duff was different class for Fulham.  It was an excellent game in the end and also an excellent evening for Spurs with League results going their way too. Live Football Online
