julie foudy is the worst commentator ever. please fire her. bring in max bretos... good grief.

2008-06-11T15:02:00.000-04:00

Getting Gray is a coup, but it may be less of a coup than you might imagine. his contract with Sky presumably stops him from working for the other British broadcasters during Euro 2008 -- Sky doesn't have the rights to show it -- and either he or ESPN decided to see if that allowed him across the pond.

Not having to deal with Dave O'Brien, though, is a relief. And we're getting the first

2008-06-11T14:54:00.000-04:00

The only things that ESPN has done right this time around are the following: 1) the commercial promos (The Italy one is my favorite); 2) Rece Davis, and 3) Andy Gray. Julie Foudy has been incompetent since the 1998 World Cup and continues to show that she has no interest in the game besides her Summer Camp and the Women's team.

I am also sick of being treated as if this was the first

2008-06-11T02:09:00.000-04:00

I am so sick of listening to these bums covering the Euros. On SportsCenter Monday night, Neil Everett did the highlights of the Romania/France draw. Not only did he butcher Thierry Henry name (as he paused, said "uh.. Thierry.. uh Henry." As Anelka's header went wide he pronounced it as "An..An..Anelka" Sounded like he was back in third grade....
Here's my beef: If you are going show footie

2008-06-10T16:55:00.000-04:00

that julie foudy is god awful. she has no idea what she is talking about and needs to be shot. id rather listen to nails on a chalkboard than her...

2008-06-10T00:00:00.000-04:00

I remember watching last World Cup '06 final on ESPN, I had to switch to the Spanish channel because I just couldn't stand Tommy Smyth. I don't even understand Spanish but it just felt better. Here he is again. :(

2008-06-09T23:54:00.000-04:00

I can actually listen to Tommy Smyth with Julie Foudy beside her. Is there anyway we can ask EPSN to pay her, and let her stay home?

How can such a person be speaking on TV? She doesn't even open her mouth. And how about football? Yes she was once a great player. But I doubt she has watched any game in the last 10 years. Perhaps she just did some catch up works from watching some

2008-06-09T12:14:00.000-04:00

I have to agree with Tommy Smyth being beyond terrible. His raging hard-on for ManU is kind of disturbing. And he's only known for his incredibly moronic, onion bag saying, which if you here anybody say after a goal, you instantly know they are a douchebag.



Two days in and I am already sick of Julie Foudy.

2008-06-08T14:24:00.000-04:00

2008-06-07T15:55:00.000-04:00

Tommy Smyth is beyond terrible. He is boring, useless, and negative. He should never be on TV commenting on soccer.
Andy Grey is great.



No Dave O'Brien or Eric Wynaldo or Marcelo? Yeah!...

2008-05-29T16:06:00.000-04:00

No Dave O'Brien or Eric Wynaldo or Marcelo? Yeah!

No JP or Ray Hudson? Nooooooo!

No Alexei Lalas and his cool 'do? Meh.

Andy Gray? As mentioned awesome!

Pedro Gomez? WTF?

Rece Davis? Interesting. He's uber-talented but he's never done this before.

Julie Foudy was the best out of three (her, Lalas, and Wynalda) in the World Cup.

2008-05-29T15:49:00.000-04:00

Julie Foudy a great analyst? HAHAHAHAHAHA. She is awful, and her moronic support of the whole petty sorority girl mentality of the U.S. women's team is reprehensible.

2008-05-28T21:34:00.000-04:00

Adding Gray is a great move for ESPN.

Guessing Rae and Smyth will be one of the teams. That happened in 2006 and they were together during the Champions League matches.

2008-05-28T21:29:00.000-04:00

getting gray will take the coverage to another level, he nows his onions - how smyth still has a job is beyond me he is clueless and lacking in any knowledge at all

2008-05-28T19:59:00.000-04:00

Andy Gray is a huge, huge get.

That'd be like some Italian broadcast team for the NFL getting John Madden in his prime.

2008-05-28T18:28:00.000-04:00

Andy Grey adds immediate credibility to the Euro 08 coverage. Not to put down the existing PBP and booth analysts, Rae and company, who have always been solid. Excellent move by ESPN here. Euro 2008 should get better raitings than the garbage they put on in the afternoon (NFL Live, 1st Take and SC reruns).

2008-05-28T18:00:00.000-04:00

Pedro Gomez is perhaps ESPNs worst personality. Hard choice between him and ol' "Sal" Sal Palontonio

2008-05-28T16:50:00.000-04:00

Yeah, I'm with dcjonesy on this one. I thought she was awful when she was covering the World Cup in 2006. I don't think I agreed with anything she said.

2008-05-28T14:15:00.000-04:00

This is absolutely fantastic to hear that Andy Gray will be a part of their coverage. He's got a lot of talent, experience and skill, and will be familiar to anyone who has played the recent Fifa Soccer franchise here in the states. Good move by the Leader.
