commentator on MOTD!
I wonder if she's tidy?
both a good commentator and reasonably attractive.
ITV had a female 'footieball' presenter for years now? Keep up you fucking dinosaur.
but she's just a stand in pundit or when Linekar isn't available.
But a match commentator....this is new.
She was pretty decent though, doesn't talk the same old gobshite some of them do, sticks to the game in hand.
MOTD's had a female presenter before - Celena Hinchcliffe did a Sunday FA Cup thing a couple of seasons ago - but yes, Jacqui Oatley is TV's first female commentator, and she's already better than Martin Fisher.
for me to remember i'm afraid.
I'm paid by a leading magazine to remember the names of minor commentators every so often.
her commentating was a bit dull and bland really, just dragging out the same old usual tropes that fill the beginner's commentary phrasebook. personally, i prefer a bit of bullshittery, gives the commentator a bit of character (though i'm not talking to lawro levels here)
also, i didn't like her voice. it was too trebly and blended in with the crowd noise too much. i reckon you need a more bassy tone to get some separation and make things clearer. although it could just be her voice in particular
yeah i just hate women, back to the kitchen with them etc.
wahey! oo-er! *snarfle*
tried to joke with the lads. Lawson's sneer almost took over his face.
men doing cookery shows probably
felt the need to fill every second with drivel and cliches
It was interesting.
I feel misplaced sexist guilt.
until the studio reaction confirmed that i was in fact not sexist at all.
lee dixon "didn't she do well." smirk.
