Arabic Commentators

I always forget the names of the Arabic commentators on ART/Jazeera/AD Sport etc. over the years...

I'm going to write a few descriptions...can anyone name them for me? Just want to update a personal database..in my head for general knowled :pp

From ART:

- Tunisian/Afrique du Nord guy who screams his butt off when Gary Neville still has the ball in defense and is about to take a shot :howler:..."El koouuuraaaa fi wost el meeedaaan, wa khateera, yusaddedd...Allaaaaaaahhhhh..." (you catch the drift)

- There is also that bald guy. I know what he looks like...just dont know his name. Has a strong voice, lisp, is bald in the middle with hair on the side.

- An Emarati who last year got a promotion on ART and hosts his own show now. Used to wear a suit and necktie in the studio as a commentator...now wears traditional Gulf dresscode while presenting his own show. Was very loud.

Al Jazeera

- The main Tunisian or "Afrique du Nord" host of Calcio and La Liga futbol. A bit plump and has a moustache.

---------

Those are the ones off the top of my head...I can literally see them, yet have no idea what their names are. :embarass:

Thanks in advance.

I think you mean Issam El-Shawali the Tunisian in your first discription. He is just awesome:star:

The bold guy is Khalid El-Ghoul. He is Jordanian:D The dude is a football enclopedya. Not a great commentator but an awesome reporter.

Now this one is the worset ever! Adnan Hamad knows absolutely about anything that has anything to do with commentating! He is just terrible!

I do not know the rest.

I love two Egyptian commentatores on Dubai Sport channel(always forget his name even though he is great and take Argentine football) and Abu Dhabi Sport, I think his is Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the dude is a legend! There is that Emirati dude on Abo Dhabi who cried when UAE won over Saudi Arabia.

Hicham El Khalsi.

I love two Egyptian commentatores on Dubai Sport channel(always forget his name even though he is great and take Argentine football)

That would be Essam Abdo. A bit fickle though don't you think?

P.S. As far as I'm concerned, El Tayeb pisses all over the rest, sadly he currently works for Qatari sports channel - El Kas.

Al Shawali is amazing :thumbsup: The rest on ART are crap.

I agree with Pooh, Yousef Saif's commentary got boring in the last year. But I still love him because he'll come up with the odd commentary that will just crack you up.

One guy you forgot to mention is M7mmad Ali M7mmad (I think I got the name right, he's the Egyptian fellow on Al Jazeera, thin and wears glasses). This guy is good, if he's talkin he's analyzing the game and football in general, and does a good job of it. Very often do I agree with him. I also like him because he has good knowledge of La Liga :thumbsup:

The best thing about watching the EPL on ART...... is having the option of switching to english commentators. They just piss me off and worst of all are the 'analysts' they have during the CL games :yuck:

I liked Ayman Jada best tbh. Of the current crop, Al Tayyeb is good and Yousif Saif is decent, although he tends to be too annoying at times..

aljazeera commentators 10 times better than ART thou, i hate this issam shawli keeps barking all match u cant even focus who is playing.....adnaaan hamad i wouldnt even call that commentating, its more like "rade7" lol

but no one comes closer to ahmed el tayib - best arab comentator alive...:


Turkey v Croatia (last minute goal)

and lets not forget hamada imaaam, who gave football 2 phrases:

"wi gowa el goooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaal" (ya DuuuuH! we know when u score its gowa not barra el goal :pp)

and then he invented

"wi hooooooooooooobbbbbbbbbbbaaaaaaaaaaaa, yaaaaaaaaaaaaah" :pp

:howler: that one is gold!!

Actually I notice Al Jazeera commentators tend to bring up the Arab/Israel subject sometimes. So far twice I heard them...forgot which Liverpool FA Cup game, Yossi Benayoun had the ball, and suddenly the commentator got all emotional, "La3eb, Ben3ayoun...tab3an, al la3eb....Israeeli....*pauses*....*sighs*....Ya3nee ....yaa reit. atamanna. Enno khalas, akthar min khamsouna 3aaman sira3. yaa reit, bas al dawla sahyouniya, yourayi7ouna li na3eesh fi salaam ma3 ba3ed. Bas lil asaf, hatha lam ya7dath. Fi jamee3 al a7waal, Allah ygaweehom li akhwanna fi Filisteen. Siraa3 akhathat shohada katheer.....wal koura ma3 Xabi Alonso..yumarirhaa.....:

No joke I thought I was listening to a Nasrallah speech :pp

The funniest Arab/Israel reference, i posted it in the Euro 2008 forum:

Al Jazeera - Holland vs. Italy-

"Rabbana yastor ashiqaa'na fi Lubnan ba3da hatha el Euro. 3a shan fi 3aam 1982, faazat Italia fi ka's al 3alam wa Israeel ijtaa7at Lubnan. Wa fi 2006 faazat Italia aydan fi ka's al 3alam wa Israeel ijtaa7at Lubnan! Wa fi 7aal Italia faazat fil Euro 2008, moumkin Israeel tajta7 Lubnan!! Ya3ni balad sagheer laysat ma7thouthan lamma al mountakhab al Itali yafouz fil dawraat al koubra."

:D

But this is nothing compared to La Liga commentary, when they get into Islamic history in Spain :howler: I mean why the history lesson??! :googly: You have Al Jazeera news channel to learn about that!!

I remember watching Toulouse-Liverpool last summer, Al Jazeera's Lebanese commentator/presenter (mostly the latter, he almost never commentates on matches) Hussein Yassine commentated on that game. Every time Benayoun touched the ball he totally ignored him by avoiding to mention his name. As if he didn't exist on the field of play. Thought that was cheeky, got a good chuckle out of it.

Luckily for him he didn't score. ;) :D

Ahmed Al-Taib is the only reason I still believe in Arabic commentators. Issam Shawali is great as well. I love his way! Yousif Saif is a jackarse with a lovely voice but he is absolutely ignorant when it comes to football.

El-Moaidi is just a legendary. If you want to laugh even if your team having having their arses handed to them on a golden plat, El-Moaidi is the commentator for that game! He is just out of this world!

Good observation. ;)

Hussein Yassin used to present the sports news, and commentary on football games for Al Manar TV...which is the Mouqawama (Hezballah) channel. I'm sure he has a direct personal issue with Israel, since he's from South Lebanon. I won't elaborate more (no politics)....but you get the picture by now.

Alot of my family members were over for the first day of the WC , and in the France-Uruguay match loool at how many people disliked Shawaly.

Out of like 13 people in the room only me and my uncle liked him. He's disliked by alot of people as they considered him annoying :D I love him though.

- I could listin to him Commenting on goals and get me more excited ans hyped then any other song. Though I think he's rude and get to passionate sometimes , I remeber I think it was Pedro's goal in Barca's final match were they scored a beauty team-work goal he was calling crazy for the reply and calling the director '' Jahel '' for not putting the reply right away hahaha.

in this wc, aljazeera has been providing a wonderful options for fans in terms of commentating. you know there are 2 commentators for each match which help you to pick the one you like to hear him by only a click in your remote control. so, fans won`t be bother anymore. :):thumbsup:

i like the way that both 7afieth Daraj and Yousef Saif commentating in Algeria vs England match. i know they work for Aljazerra which an arabic one. but they were so biased for algeria.

you know that english team is also supported in the middle east and arabian countries. i know 7afieth is algerian, but what about Yousif? does he the right to biased like that?

When my friend recently told me that his enjoyment of the World Cup had been spoiled by an ugly, persistent, low-pitched background noise, I naturally assumed that he was complaining about the much-maligned vuvuzela. But no, he was actually referring to an Arabic “football commentator” on Al Jazeera Sports called Issam Al Showali . I decided to tune in myself to see if he was as hideous as my friend said he was. Indeed he was. Give me a vuvuzela over this man anytime. Hell, his voice is about as welcome in my home as a tax demand. On top of this he seems to have an acute case of verbal diarrhoea, apparently derived from an insane notion that he thinks he needs to keep talking incessantly in case the match descends into a farcical state of suspended animation without his verbal support.

Also I was once reading a newspaper with a game on TV in the background. All of a sudden Issam seemed to get highly excited, even hysterical. I instinctively looked up at the TV expecting to see a celebration of some glorious bicycle-kicked goal, only to be disappointed to witness a harmless throw-in somewhere near the halfway line with no evidence of anything unusual (let alone exciting) happening beforehand. I also found it particularly annoying when he tried to shamelessly mimic the “GOOOOOOAAAAAAAAALLL!!” cry of South American commentators, whilst obviously lacking both their verve and their timing. Shame as he looks like a nice guy otherwise.

Sorry Issam, but on behalf of my friends all we can say is stop trying so hard mate and be more natural. Less is more: it takes much more than passion to make a good football commentator. We recognise that you can’t do much about your coarse voice, but please stop your demented and irritating babble and let the game “breathe” more freely on TV as you have given me and my friends a splitting headache and are in grave danger of becoming an instant turn-off. Thanks.

hello..

well, i should accept all you comment since it`s your own opinion. but wait, Issam isn`t that bad or annoying as you described him.

as you hate his commentating, i think thousands of arab football fans who love like to hear only Issam`s commentating on JSC.

if he`s commentate tomorrow the final between spain and holland, then it`s gonna be the 4th wc final for him which proves a lot for his cv

Thanks for your input Kopite. Yes, Issam really is that bad. It's very rare that I feel the need make a comment on the Internet about anyone, but this man disrupts the enjoyment of many with his juvenile style of commentating. Why does he feel the need to keep on talking throughout a match? - it's really suffocating. Personal opinion only: I can't imagine why anybody would enjoy his commentary, and if they say so it doesn't reflect well on their sense of taste or Al-Jazeera's for that matter if they can't find anyone better than him to commentate on the world's most important football match.

man, i think most of the commentators keep talk during the match and more than Issam himself. e.g, Raoof Khulaif and ALi Saeed Alka3bi.

i would say that both both Raoof and Issam have similar commentating btw.

there are 2 available commentators in every match during the world cup without looking at the name of commentator and whether the match is strong enough or not.

Issam to me and to many is brilliant , he tends to be annoying at times but the energy and the passion he brings to the game is brilliant. I like many sometimes watch matches just to hear him.

Cheekyton are you an Arabic speaker, btw?

If you are not a speaker of the language, I won't say you don't have the right to judge, but it does give your rant less credibility.

Having said that, my first languages were Greek and English before I began speaking Arabic with my parents.

I started off with the ESPN's and Gulf Channels in the 1990s which broadcasted with loud Saudi and Kuwaiti commentators, as well as the famous Egyptian ones.

I think the Arabic-speaking crowd welcomed something new, in the form of the North-African ones - and by North-African I mean, Moroccan/Algerian/Tunisian.

I watched the world cup final at a pub in Beirut, and the pub owner kept on trying to switch the language because we were listening to the Gulf-dialect Ali Saeed al Kaabi. Many of the customers asked him, what are you doing, he replies, "I want that Tunisian guy, he's so much better!" :)

(unfortunately the language wouldn't switch. :pp ....Any idea if Shawally actually commentated the final? just outta curiosity)

Actually, Al Jazeera have this new habit of giving viewers the choice of commentator they want. Seriously - you have the "luxury" of choosing which Arabic dialect you wanna watch it in...and you'd be lucky if the English button actually had it in English :palm:

You can simply switch it on the language button.

Hi MK-Inter: I am indeed new to Shawaly (but am glad I now know of him as he is now my new yardstick which I use to judge bad commentators - Arabic or otherwise). The "energy and passion" he seems to bring appears to be manufactured and insincere IMO or otherwise he's just plain mad. Sorry Issam if you're reading - to repeat stop trying too hard and let the game breathe as your coarse voice and breathless babble and general nonsense stifles it badly.

Hi iaquinta#9: Yes I speak Arabic as well as English. I've got absolutely nothing against Arabic commentators or North African ones for that matter but my friends and I like many others find Shawali plain disruptive and irritating. He did commentate on the WC Final but thankfully we had the option of choosing another Arabic commentator (who BTW spoke nearly as much but his voice is not as tiring as Shawali's - and thus we were able enjoy the match without getting a headache) and English one too. I regret criticizing Issam's coarse voice as presumably he can't do much about it but someone at Al-Jazeera should have thought about this first when they inflicted him on the world.

July 13th, 2010, 22:33
Sorry man :D but Chawaly is regarded one of the greatest arabic commentors , the most poplular , the most loved , the extreamly popular in the arabic world , like actually extreamly popular and if you put Chawaly on youtube you will see how many people try to copy him. The guy is like the most arabic popular figure in the football world. He took the best arabic commentor for like 4 years in a row.

I remember watching Inter vs Munich in a cafe and Chawaly was one then one person changed the commentory and I can assure you loads of people screamed the same second to say to put him back. The guy is extreamly popular and loved by the arabic world. One of the best things Jazeera did was bring him on.

July 13th, 2010, 23:08
I also find most Arabic commentators to be annoying and disruptive in the way they ramble endlessly off topic, and in some of their over the top enthusiasm. Ever since the option of having English commentary became available I almost never listen to anything else.

But even I admit that Essam Shwaily ROCKS :thumbsup:

He, Ali Mohammed Ali, and Yusuf Saif are the only ones I like. (and Mr. Saif only joined my prestigious list after I found out he's a Madridista, I used to think he was a Cule the way he would ramble about Barca during Madrid marches but as it turns out he's just a frustrated Madrid fan :D )

@Iaquinta#9:

For the final, Shwaily started a bit reserved, almost a bit annoyed for some reason. He slowly picked up the pace with his schizophrenic love / hate relationship with both teams. Praising their histories as well as their current generations, only to knock them down reminding them of their past failures and current difficulties. All while bustin out rhyme after rhyme in a poetic scream fest :cool:
