Commentators mistakes/funny comments

Here at Aljazeera Sport:

Holland - France:

Van Basten send Bouma, a youngester 19 years old, to replace Van Der Vaart

Turkey - Czeck Republic:

Jarolim enters the pitch. He is the new nedved. He's 29 years old

Italy - France

What a disastrous start for France. Frank Ribery was sent off, and Italy scored from a penalty

My weekly rant!

27th May 1965: Over 16,000 days.

"For a moment there I returned to my youth, the early youth, when all nice illusions were gathered together. Then life came and, like a strong wind, blew them away, one by one. What we call happiness is sometimes the accordance between our life and circumstances, our biography and history, our personal aspirations and historical currents. If I look at things that way, I can say: I was born too early to be happy. But birth is one of the many things we do not get to choose. It is part of our destiny."
Alija Izetbegovic

Also the commentator for the Italy - France match kept saying how France are not doing so well cause they're playing with 9 players (and Italy 11).

Technically speaking it's correct because Coupet just stood in his goal.

"If a spaceship landed in the centre circle, direct from Mars, I wouldn't be surprised."
ITV's Jon Champion, commenting during the Czech Republic-Turkey game

Dunno if this quote should qualify for this thread but here goes
"As the Prime Minister I have to be balanced and collected but on Thursday night I wanted to kill."
Polish PM Donald Tusk talking about referee Webb.

I was looking at some of the live commentary on Soccernet, and while I don't know who is doing the writing, it seems they are trying to liven things up a bit. Some of the comments are a bit unprofessional but also rather funny.

E.g., from the match between Austria and Germany:

"Back on the pitch Fritz takes a dive to stop an Austrian move, then springs to his feet as soon as they put the ball out of play. What an eejit."

In a way commentators making silly mistakes but still trying annoy me a lot less than those getting helplessly off-topic. I mean, these guys you quote make stupid mistakes but they at least try.

I once heard a TV report from a game in the USA's league where the first player entered the field with just a first name "Fred" on his shirt. The next 10 (!) minutes the commentator was naming famous people also named Fred, none of them being anything related to soccer. THAT is just plain stupid and a lot worse than those commentators making a once-off mistake.

what commentator in Korea said on Spain vs. Russia game

1. Keep calling USSR instead of Russia

2. Pronouncing David Villa (pronounced in English, yes like Deivid Vil la)

3. Santi Cazorla in for Iniesta to strength the defense

We miss Guus Hiddink days... But we need to move on for better future.

There are a lot of funnies to quote when you're reading liveblogs of matches. Guardian had a really good one the other day in Italy - France just after Italy found their second - "Who says Henry never scores in big games?"

English speaking commentators need to stop saying "The Russians are coming" every damn match.

Well it is funny listening to Tommy Smith and the guys at ESPN b/c they are not at the Euro's. They do the games from a room in the studio so they dont know what exactly is going on most the time and have to wait for a replay for confirmation on things even though Tommy Smith always seems to have the perfect view of any situation until he sees it on replay and is either clearly wrong and admits it or stays stubborn and defies the laws of logic with his insight. I wish i could call up sometimes and tell him and Derek Rea they need to go back to announcing the Worlds Strongest Man competitions like they used to.

although Tommy Smith lives right by me seeing as he shouted out Middle Village during the Romania Holland game. So hes cool in my book.

Do you even glory hunt?

Sometimes you need to spell it out :rollani: I should have written Euro 2008 on the title!

I found Al Jazeera presenter trying to convince Wenger to be France's new coach hysterical. The guy even got offended when Wenger said that the position wasn't his, he kept on going about the subject for almost five minutes...

FUNNY!

I suppose it wasn't funny but the ITV (or was it BBC?) commentator during the Croatia-Poland match kept on telling us that Niko Kranjčar has a dangerous left foot. It was something along the lines of "we know this man very well, he plays at Portsmouth" - then Croatia wins a free-kick on the edge of the area and he says something like "it's perfect for the left-footer (Kranjčar)".

Very, very annoying. :smileani:

The latter comment is just being creative. One of Dublin's suburbs is called Marino, so the commentator was basically saying that the local Dublin-based pub team is better than San Marino.

You can't beat David Pleat.

His best so far has been calling Czech Republic, Republic of Czechoslovakia all the way through their games.
