They all have to start somewhere.

I remember during one of Jonathan Pierce's early comentries he used the line "Vialli... Easy peasy, lemon squeezie" and a bit of me died inside.

Now he's half decent.

I see no reason what so ever to even be considering this a problem.

Commentry is all about memory, voice and technique.

Jonathon pearce is mentioned. I can state with absolute confidence that his is an absolutely woeful comentator who is annoying at ruins game enjoyment.

IF a woman has a voice that doesn't grate and can add to the game great. lets get them going.

Commentary is one thing, but I think having a woman in the studio talking to guys about football is a bit rubbish.
Men just act differently when talking to a woman - it all seems a bit awkward and forced imo..

The problem for me was , not that she’s a woman or she may miss a bit of the play , anyone can do that , it’s just her voice made my ears bleed and if it hadn’t been for the red button option , I unfortunately would have had to watch this game in mute . Not against ny body Comm , just feel their voice has to be easy on the ear

Commentary is an incredibly difficult art, hence there are so few commentators around and the likes of Motson did it for so long.

I find it abysmal that, without being anywhere near the level of other commentators at the world cup, she's been promoted to that level just because she's female.

Evidently, this must be a part of the BBC’s current “Hear Her” season 😉

Don't think a female voice suits football commentary. Then again, that's more down to me just not being used to it.
