Nigerian Football Commentators, What Is There Problem ?

What is wrong with Nigerian football commentators?. Obviously from all recent matches played, the 2010 world cup qualifying series, Under 20 World cup and the on going under 17 world cup commentaries is nothing but rubbish even years past.

They lack that quality commentary and its flavours. They don’t add value to a match you are watching on TV except making it boring and uninteresting, makes a lot of mistakes and often repetition. They lack this football analytical instinct and football proficiency, football grammars like “offensives, far side, what an incisive display from messi, moving along the touch line now, what a delightful cross there from Alonso etc “ with exclamation expressions which makes it to be fun. What pains me most is the fact that they cant even analyses their own player’s profile and sharp identification of their names on current match playing

Yesterday’s commentator of Nigerian VS Honduras was nothing to talk about. Pls my fellow NLders what is your opinion and suggestion on this ? I think they need to come of age and doing what is right. This cant be compared with what we see in diff part of europe and America.

those commentaries are always bland and lame. they dont even know the name of some of the players. imagine saying "no. 10 player from switzerland" wtf its just 22 names not rocket science. and the worst part is how they do it with such bias. they need to go back to commentary school (if such exists)

The same folks that were commenting in 1980 are still doing it without improving themselves tru training. Look at Andy Gray of sky sports, do you know how many training courses he has attended in the last 10years? in the UK, most commentators and sports Analyst go for training every year in the summer to update and keep abreast of the latest industry technology. The fact of the matter is that NTA will not release enough money for these guys to go for proper courses. Na quack ones dem they go.

FRCN use to have good Radio commentators don't know what has happened in recent past.

Commentating live soccer matches needs training and the flair must be there.

I am a good commentator, get me contract and test my abilities

Some years ago i was at Brila FM for an auditioning on sport broadcasting i had no chance at all , the crowd was so much.

They need serious training and exposure, most be talented, able to read and analyse "play by play" football match and follow football trend to the later. I hate it when i hear "Ladies and Gentlemen, " from them
