Fan creates brilliant Twitter thread of football’s greatest commentary moments

“And Torres is in! This could be the most dramatic story of the season. It’s Torres to give Chelsea a place in the Champions League final…”

“OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! UN-BE-LIEVABLE!”

Gary Neville entered himself into football commentary folklore when he lost all sense of control after Fernando Torres’ goal for Chelsea against Barcelona in the 2011/12 Champions League.

It was an iconic goal and thankfully, Neville delivered a line befitting of the moment.

His piece of commentary is included in a fan’s compilation of football’s greatest commentary.

It features some classics, including Martin Tyler’s famous ‘AGUEROOOOOOO’ after the Argentinian sealed the Premier League title for Manchester City, Peter Drury making Wayne Rooney’s overhead kick against City even better and Andy Gray shouting ‘OHHHHHHH YA BEAUTY!’ after Steven Gerrard’s strike against Galatasaray.

Some football fans don’t enjoy the standard of commentary in the modern age. Indeed, Amazon Prime’s offering of Premier League football enabled viewers to turn it off.

But the perfect piece of commentary can certainly make a memorable moment that bit more special.

Tyler, who has commentated over Premier League football since its inception in1992, admitted in 2017 that he still enjoys listening to his commentary over that Aguero goal.

“It was like an out-of-body experience. I’ve heard it lots of times and it would be wrong of me to say I don’t enjoy hearing it,” he told the Independent.

“I don’t think I messed it up.”

Tyler. Drury. Tyldesley. Motson. Over the years they’ve all made watching football even more enjoyable.
