But hey what do I know this man is a former professional footballer and been commentating on football games for years, I am sure my opinion is not shared…then I went onto Twitter.
Andy Townsend was trending with the bulk of criticism coming from his overzealous ‘come on’ muttered rather loudly under his breath when Yaya Toure flew forward from centre midfield.
Here is a rather amusing collection of Andy Townsend related Tweets...
Stuart Fleetwood @SFleets Did Andy Townsend just shout 'Go On' when Yaya Toure had the ball? This isn't fan zone u fool!
Worrall @Wozzy2909 Is Townsend watching another game
Martin Belam @currybet I like to imagine Andy Townsend's interjections are actually from someone playing an unrelated game of FIFA12 too loudly in another room
Ryan Babel (not) @NotRyanBabel10 Dear Andy Townsend, thank you for inspiring me to recognise that Niall Quinn is only the world's second worst football commentator.
Chris @2nd_time_champ Andy Townsend trending you no it can't be good haha
nathan broadbent @NorthernMunky00 Oh and Andy Townsend knows as much about football as I do bulgarian ball-room dancing....
Oh well at least you get to hear Adrian Chiles in between, oh wait…
Matt Joy. @MattJoy_ Why can't Adrian Chiles just climb into a cave and dissapear.
Nick Binns @HowfenClaret Does anyone at ITV Sport read twitter? Not one single positive tweet about Adrian Chiles, or his shoes.
Although there is always one highly entertaining dynamic on their coverage of the football…
What are your thoughts on the coverage on ITV?
