Match 50: England vs Denmark - 8pm (bst) ITV1 LIVE FROM WEMBLEY !!!!!!!!!!


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I cannot be bothered to read through the thread to see if this has been mentioned yet, but UEFA are opening disciplinary proceedings against the English FA for:

Booing the Danish national anthem
Fans shining a laser pointer at Schmeichel during the penalty
Use of pyrotechnics inside the ground.

Dunno what the punishment will be though. A fine? Worst case scenario I can think of is the September home qualifiers having to be behind closed doors.

Matterface... he sounds like someone who doesn't really like football, has never really watched it and is now trying to fake it :D I actually quite like a commentator who sounds a bit Partridge in places, if they are passionate about what they are doing you can forgive a lot. But Matterface, it's just a job for him and he's not even any good at it.

It amazes me how often he doesn't seem to know what's going on. Like one point last night going "ooh have they given offside? Ooh no it's a corner!" 

It feels like watching it with an annoying guy at work who clearly doesn't care about football but is trying to sound like he knows everything.

I know we all give Matterface dogs abuse, but I thought he was appalling last night by even his own low standards.

The but where he was rambling about one of Denmark’s staff members being unavailable at the moment, meaning they were down to ten (or nine as he thought) was truly cringeworthy

Its a mystery why Clive Tyldesley got demoted for him

I don't even like Clive but my word the difference between him and Matterface is night and day

The Commentators of yesteryear perhaps wasnt the greatest themselves but they had good voices which people would recognize in years to come. Matterface doesn't

You miss Brian Moore for a day like this

Everytime I saw Peter Schmeichel in the lead up to the game I got this poppin' in my head and I've not seen anyone else mention it, it's somewhere in this thread already right?

Earlier in the tournament he blatantly didn't know what the rule was if the ball hits the referee.

On par with Michael Owen, although at least Matterface is talking to his wife.

Matterface so bad. When the penalty went in he was basically just screaming “YES! YES!” like a demented fan who had snuck into the commentary box without being caught.

These are the huge moments in our shared cultural history and he’s actually ruining them for us all. Honestly feel for today’s kids who will only have Matterface and Mowbray to look back on and feel nostalgic about in 20 years. Where we had giants like Motson and Davies and Moore and Helm.

Surprised we do not already have the thread made so we can have 3 days to discuss and dissect the final

Brian Moore wasnt much of a commentator but his voice was unique and fitting history. Motsons does too but he is a better commentator. Matterface is really bad

Can't forget the Spanish 4th official too who's going to let us shine even more laser pens.

You'll be looking for a long time if you want refs and assistants from countries that don't hate England.

...But I still see that ball on pitch
And the bitters are pissed
Raheem dancing through the defence 
And definitely not diving
 
Three Lions on a shirt
Rob1981 still dreaming
Gunmans tears of hurt
Never gonna stop us beaming...

Yeah, I'm sure Kane still scores from the rebound if the penalty wasn't given.

Sterling lays it across for a tap in if he wasn't fouled :thup:

The other matches that I've watched of them, the first one (of which I will speak no more), and the last one, Poulsen didn't affect the game at all when he came on.

What does he see in him? He's not really good at using his physical attributes to hold up the ball,  nor does he possess good enough first touch. The ball kept bouncing off him in all his appearances. I think that single decision might have cost them the game sadly.

Yeah Poulsen isn' very good at all. Doesn't use his size well, he's supposed to be a target man but yeah, not very good at it and he was awful in every game he played this tournament. Taking off Dolberg for him when they did was a very poor decision. I don't think they'd have won the game though if Dolberg had stayed on as the rest of the team were collectively knackered after an hour.

lads does anybody know if his terms will be the same? or will he want more for the final?

I think we should add on another '0' just to be on the safe side.

Last I heard, there over 200,000  signatures for the France - Switzerland game to be replayed, because Sommer didn't stay on the goal line for Mbappe's penalty. :lol:

At the risk of being one of the many in this thread to over-exaggerate at some point… surely Matterface will never get a commentating gig for an important match again - he was properly appalling. The Beeb must secretly love it when ITV get an England game because of how bad ITV are at broadcasting them.

Also, wasn’t it all just wonderful. Being outwardly emotional is very rare for me, but I shed a tear or two watching Southgate at the end. With the expansion of major tournaments I was beginning to struggle to envisage England in a final in my lifetime.

The penalty was a bit 50/50 for me - sometimes you get them, sometimes you don’t. I don’t think I would have begrudged the referee not giving it. But these things have a way of evening out over time - England have certainly been on the other side more than their share over the years.

I think the big hoo-ha should have been why the ref wasn't allowing Lloris to move on the line

Just catching up on the thread and Matterface chat... 

Two moments for me. First when Sterling had a great chance and hit it straight into Schmeical's stomach. Matterface: "HOW ON *EARTH* HAS HE SAVED THAT?!?!" in a tone as if it was Banks v Pele.  He couldn't have not saved it.  

And then the most cringe worthy commentary of the euros so far, the spiel at the end (paraphrasing): "After the year you've had, you deserve this. Kids, you don't need to go to bed, folks, tell your boss you won't be in tomorrow.." and a load of similar guff I don't care to remember. You knew he felt he was making a commentary speech for the ages, in his mind speaking to and for all of England. Inane and pure ego masturbation.

The main issue is it sounds so incredibly forced and so unnatural. You can tell he had that "speech" planned for if we won. And if he didn't, ****ing hell how can you sound so forced when trying to display genuine reaction! 

The point with the save just goes back to again how he doesn't seem to properly understand football, and again he overstates things. 

I know we all keep harping on about him but my word he really is just a slog to listen to. Funnily enough I didn't really have any issue with him when he was their B/C commentator but now he's their top guy it really does feel like he's trying to force some kind of legendary commentary moment and failing spectacularly at it.
