For me , I think Peter Drury is the greatest. He made me realise why i love and watch football cos I never had a definite answer to DAT question. His mix of commentary and poetry gives me goosebumps.

Jon Champion and Jim Beglin
Re: The greatest Football Commentator in the game and Why? by aadoiza: 4:57pm On Apr 20, 2020
I have always loved Jon Champion's and Jim Beglin's style. But the moment I confirmed Jim to be my all-time favourite was in a match between Man City and West Brom(not too sure it was West brom). The first half was like a bore fest, and then the second started with so loud a bang that you could hardly hold your breath. And when Jim described the game thus far, he said, 'the first half was a stinker and the second half has been a stunker'. I had never heard anything so witty as that in football commentary. Even the almighty Jon Champion had to ask, ' where did you get that, Jim?'

Jim Beglin's ways around words make him the best for me.

Anybody know why Jon Champion has not been heard so often in matches this season?

I like Peter Drury and Jim Beglin combination, Martin Tyler is also good but his partner Alan Smith is a bore both in real life commentary and on FIFA

Peter Drury, Jim Beglin and John Champion in accordance. cool

Peter Drury is the best of all time with his comical side to commentary. Can't forget his famous "the lamp in Lampard has gone out". Talking about football statistics I give it to Jon Champion, that guy even knows the night messi slept with his wife and birthed his son

Man United vs Westham recently... Man U was leading by a lone goal and in the 79th minute, Greenwood hit the post with a shot and the Commentator said "and Westham is still alive" grin

That Peter Dury of a guy is something else when it comes to witty words and wordplays. But for statistics John champion takes it. Mine is Peter, John and then Jim. The three musketeers
