Thread: Motson

  1. #21
    And of course, I remiss not to mention Mister Clough's buddy - Brian Moore. Arsenal fans 💘 his 'Thomas through the middle, it's up for grabs now'
    And I remember Villa Park is adorned with his ' It has to be and it is , It's Peter Withe.'

    Another one from the memory bank...Gerald Sinstadt...he was good...still with us too apparently but knocking on a bit now.

    Sounds great Rom! Some of those overseas commentators, for example when a goal is scored, go really ballistic. Screaming and shouting like real nutters, great fun!!

    You don't mean John Helm do you, that boring git and former YTV frontman who will do any old naff commentary these days, just as long as the moneys right ?.

    For you punters, Peter O'Sullevan the superb Horse Racing commentator. Had it nailed every race!!

    Guess that's part of the problem mac. I know next to nothing about horses, motor racing, tennis or snooker but Peter O'Sullevan, Murray Walker, Gerald Williams and Ted Lowe(?) all seemed masters of their craft. There was even someone who seemed to be the 'voice of wrestling' whenever I went to my uncle's house in the sixties...but then, like darts, I've never considered wrestling to be a sport.

    Poor Motson, seems he hasn't got the respect he deserves, not that he will care, master of the craft has earned retirement.

    Obviously, the original Olympians would disagree with you rA as wrestling was in the early games. You are probably referring to the late Kent Walton, the king of wrestling commentary.

    The best bit of Motty (and no thats not a euphamism ), is when he screeched his way through our Fa Cup Qtr final win over Chelski in '08. When Kayodi Odejayi leaped up and headed us in front, he went up a few deci-bells and our glasses started shaking.

    And I always liked Brian Moore even though I always preferred the Bbc over Itv, and when Im doing live chat now and we score, I always write 'and its in there!!' which Moore often used to say lol.

    Ah they dont make them like Moore anymore. Ah well good luck at Wembley, you never know you may actually win.

    Who knows Whitey kid, and tahh for your good wishes anyway lol.
    Yes we might actually surprise them because they are going to play a so called weaker side aren't they ?.
    But this is a Premship club here so their so called weaker side might easily hold their own in the Champship etc.

    That's him mac...apparently he was also a DJ on Radio Luxembourg and was in a couple of early seventies porn films.
    Not sure Olympic wrestling had much in common with the pantomime glitz he commented on. Wasn't/isn't it all staged?

    It's like in many sports where derivations are for entertainment and/or as a means of attracting an interest in the 'real thing' and certainly the wrestling of Kent's time was purely entertainment as is the modern day WWE. But I am sure that some kid got involved in the sport purely as a result of watching such 'entertainment' and may have even won a gold medal in he Olympics!! Who knows??
    For me it was a great laugh and good fun to watch and my kids loved WWE!!

    The World Of Sport coverage generally had three comedy bouts and then a serious bout, and I guess the serious side of the sport in those days funded its elf off the audience attending the comedy stuff

    Forgot David Lloyd. How could I forget Bumble? The most entertaining and knowledgeable commentator around today by miles.
    Very fine cricketer...decent footballer...superb commentator.

  18. #38
    Of course 'start the car' Bumble. Can make even the most boring cricket match entertaining!!

  19. #39
    Bumble is as mad as a ships cat but that's why he is a league apart in cricket commentary.

    Yes the one.
    But gotta be fair old chap. He was boring in the day but had improved tremendously.
    Extremely knowledgeable.
