- What’s your best , most iconic TV sporting commentary moment ?
- Ramsey NeilMember
For me off the top of my head it has to be Kenneth Wolstenholme’s ” They think it’s all over, it is now ” just because of the sheer scale of the achievement for England to win the world cup on their home turf . Although “How does he sit down with balls that big ” by Rob Warner runs it close .Posted 3 months agoCaptainFlashheartMember

“Kirkpatrick to Williams. This is great stuff! Phil Bennett covering. Chased by Alistair Scown. Brilliant! Oh, that’s brilliant! John Williams, Bryan Williams. Pullin. John Dawes. Great dummy! To David, Tom David, the halfway line. Brilliant by Quinnell! This is Gareth Edwards! A dramatic start… what a score!”theotherjonvSubscriber
David Platt swivels as the ball comes over his shoulder, the ball floats past Jean-Michel Pfaff’s outstretched hand,
“and England have done it! In the last minute of extra time!”
For the moment, where I was, the people I was with possibly the single best 3 seconds of my life. Still tingles now.
I’m too young to know the 1966 one for real, but of course that is iconic. I don’t know if you’ve heard the retelling where he said he wasn’t even really trying to score, he said he was just knackered, couldn’t run any further and thought that the harder he hit it, the further over the bar it would go and the longer it would take to get back……Posted 3 months agobreatheeasyMember
Can I say two?
Remember the Olympics a good while ago, when one of the GB rowing teams (eights I think) won the gold medal – they had an ex-cox commentating and his voice just got higher and higher as it looked like they were going to clinch gold.
And nobody mentioned Phil Liggett on the 1987 La Plagne stage of the TdF when Stephen Roche chased down Pedro Delgado

Kammy missing the red card at Portsmouth was absolute gold and still leaves me in tears when I watch it
This x1000. It’s pure comedy gold. “What…. a red card Geoff….. I must have missed that???. Whist turning back and forth.
“What has happened Chris Kamara?”
“I dont know Geoff.. I dont know?????”Posted 3 months agotomhowardSubscriber

Pagey (particularly) and Warner commentating on the Danny Hart run at Champery is just amazing.
What’s sad and interesting is that as far as I know Pagey hasn’t done any commentating since and Rob has cleaned his act up a lot, so clearly it crossed a line that someone was unhappy with.Posted 3 months agochakapingSubscriber

Apparently he does World Champs for the BBC some years.
But we’re all watching it on Red Bull obvs.
He talks about it in a podcast from earlier this year, Downtime one probably. Well worth a listen, some great stories.Posted 3 months ago
