    I listened to the game today on SiriusXM and I have to say the commentators were really, really bad! About 10 minutes into listening I found out it was a Talksport show! Dear, Oh, dear, it was awful, they had a Scottish dude on there, don't know his name , but he was so anti-spurs it was embarrassing :yuck: Both of them spent more time praising Newport, and their underdog fighting spirit, than they did describing the game. All I heard was "Spurs are so very fortunate to be winning this game"................
    And there I was thinking that American sports journalism/commentary was gash!! And I'm a Brit! Don't know how you guys deal with those :asshat:'s

    I know what you mean. In a sense, it's a shame that Wembley has lost its magic a bit over the years because semi finals are now played there (Spurs v Arsenal 1991 was the first time if memory serves me correct) and obviously we have been allowed to play all our home games at Wembley but Durham was being a bit silly saying it was cheating because clearly all of this was agreed with the FA.

    We are always at a disadvantage playing lower league opposition because no matter how well we play, the commentators will always favour the 'brave' opposition. It will be the same against Rochdale.

    It was Ray Houghton.
    You're right in that he's anti spurs, another ex-Liverpool player working in the media, he's views in general are very dated.

    Comical, I was just on the bbc website and went to do their 'combined XI' but after realising the first six players I'd picked were ours decided it was a futile exercise.......especially as that was the defence!

    Ah yes, I remember him from way back when, before I moved here to the States. Talksport came about long after I left the UK so I'm familiar with most of the names, just not their voices! Thanks for clarifying who it was (y)

    Actually the commentators you get in America are pretty much the same faces from English TV/radio. The PL games are on NBC, who have Rebecca Lowe, Robbie Earle, and Robbie Mustoe in the studio. Then the commentators are the same lot from BT sport, MOTD etc. who've either been poached by NBC or just rotate in and out when they're not booked by BT etc. The cup games are on Fox, which has god-awful TV analysis (made slightly better by the presence of Kate Abdo :love:) and the commentators are usually just a direct feed from whichever English channel is showing it.

    Yeah, I like those 3, they are mostly level-headed and don't go for sensationalist approach. As for Fox Sports, you are absolutely on the money, their analysis, pre and post-match analysis, such as it is, is embarrassing to say the least :clown::clown:

    Thing is, an argument can be made for 4/5 being in a combined XI but in no way shape of form would it be Bellerin, Monreal or Wilshire!

    The four would be something like Koscielny, Ozil, Aubameyang and maybe Mikikikkihhytrtryyan if he rediscovers his Dortmund form. Wilshire struggles to get in the Arsenal team let alone a combined XI! Over Dembele, Eriksen or Dele? Laughable
