As previously mentioned, I was listening to the footie on Five Live and this nagging question began to gnaw again. Why do they need two commentators per match, each taking half a game each?
The summarisers have to go the whole 90 minutes: Steve Claridge, Marks Bright and Lawrenson, Terry Butcher, Chris Waddle, and ‘this is what I call a Jimmy Armfield.’ (And he is what I call a national treasure.)
But the commentators? They seldom run out of breath, so why can’t they manage the whole game? There must be a reason.
Help me, Mosh!
