I thought the commentary team were good last night, not overly negative which JT is often guilty of.

Afraid at some point in everyone's life your shelf life expires, think JT needs to hang his commentators boots up and allow some fresh, possibly less emotionally connected to the club, blood take the reigns now.

I must be in the minority but I don't have a problem with John Tondeur commentating on Town, I like his passion for GTFC.

JT


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

Don't have a problem with either of them doing it. I enjoyed lloyd Griffiths as well last nite thought me made some good points, especially about needing game management so not playing it out from the back in the last few minutes when leading by a goal!

Last night's was a good commentary, the video quality and camera work were good too. I prefer a mix rather than getting the same commentators all the time. John's commentary has for many years been exclusively for the radio viewer. It would be good to have an actual commentator (whoever it is) on the pictures you are seeing, which I imagine is a slightly different skill.

Yea, when he's commentating for the radio, you don't realise that he gets the wrong player about 10 times a game.

But the commentary is for the radio, they just combine it with the video. It's still the exact same commentary that the radio station does. Don't think they can adapt it easily, because the cost of a couple of commentators and equipment specifically for ifollow will cost more than the clubs make out of it once fans are allowed back in.

Anyone but JT, passion for Grimsby Town???? He’s so negative it’s laughable, that and the fact he gets the players mixed up far to often......With us watching the games on ifollow it stands out a mile how much of the game he gets wrong......time for a change.

The extended post-match highlights do feature a more tv-style commentary, however I assume this is dubbed into the highlights post-match. Assuming that’s the case, it’s quite well done actually.
