They showed a terrible angle on the replay on SR. It happened in front of me and he made clear contact with Toner who had a large lump on his cheekbone. Considering the way Cummins swung the elbow, it was a red all day.
fair enough if u seen it up close but if defo didnt look like he went to elbow him. Didnt look intentional.

Meant to post this earlier, but why the fcuk is this show on at 7pm on a Monday night, when a few thousand of the potential audience are physically at LOI games ? I know people can record the show, but surely it would make more sense to have it on Tuesday night, then they could show the goals from the Monday games as well, and it would be up to date with the current league standings etc. 

It's something of a niche show, I think the audience it's mainly aimed at would be as happy to watch it Tuesday as Monday. Ya wouldn't get the rugby against the head yoke or whatever tis called on at the same time as even an U20 international, never mind a senior one, it's a bizarre way to operate.

Dan McDonnell and others have been critical of the scheduling of the show.

Some of the "commentary" on the highlights are awful too.

Siobhan Madigan is up there with the worst "commentators" I have ever heard in any sport, she has zero flair for it and just about every game she "commentates" on goes at the same pace, truly awful.

I'm not just saying this, but I'd be pretty confident any regular Joe Soap off YBIG or a person who has a big interest in soccer would do fine commentating on these little 2 and 3 minute highlight reels.

I think the problem with some of the commentary is that it's inserted in the editing process. The commentators are not actually at the game, but make it try to sound like they're talking live.
Well, at least that's what it sounds like.

As for the scheduling, there were plenty of complaints that it was on at 11pm in previous years, and there are not many Monday evening matches throughout the season to clash with it.

Her commentary sounds horrendous. They'd be better off just doing what RTE do for highlights during the early rounds of the Champions League.

Only catching up on the last couple of programmes.  Rovers score 6 against Derry, brilliant, but what was the point in inserting Siobhan Madigan's "commentary", it as absolutely brutal and my ears were bleeding listening to it.   None of those inserted commentaries are ever any use anyhow, just have someone narrating the action and stop trying to be clever.  Utter pig sh*t.

I used to love listening to Archie McPherson muddling his way through every league in Europe's goal action on Eurosport back in the late 80's/early 90's. 

The result would first appear on the screen with the goal scorers listed before each set of highlights and poor aul Archie only got the same info that we did, which was that Utrecht had beaten Go Ahead Eagles 8-0. 

So he would be watching Jann Van Bangsalot clean through on goal and looking confident so Archie would make the natural assumption in this instance and state

"And Van Bangsalot races through to fire home number 5 for Utrecht...." as the erstwhile hero trips over himself and the ball runs safely into the keepers arms. Meanwhile Archie just wants them to get on with the highlights and show a goal quickly so he can cover himself but sure the next clip would be of a yellow card incident and nothing to do with what he had just commented on. 

It was like they didn't have the budget or the inclination to reshoot or edit out of the mistakes. Probably because they knew that there was only one dopey kid sitting in front of the tele in Dublin who was paying any attention at all

Archie was superb! Always knowledgeable, entertaining and never, ever irritating.
 
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

@MC Hammered, I too valued the spread of club football that Europort showed. I saw Romario's innocuous injury for PSV when chasing a loose ball he ran through the keepers outstretched legs and kept him out of 1990 World Cup.

I presumed Eurosport broadcast in a few different languages and the same challenges faced all the other language commentators.

Archie on Eurosport back in the early 90s:

"It's a balmy night here in Lisbon..." as he's stuck freezing his ass off in a windowless studio, commentating off a 20'x20' monitor, somewhere in an industrial estate near Heathrow.LOL

Just watched Monday night's episode, proper highlight commentary Clap

Maria Crowe isn't bad to look at either.

They don't leave the episodes up on the RTE player for long though Thumbs Down

I worked with Marie Crowe. Very nice person. Played for St.Pats Women's team a few years back, so she knows the grassroots. Thumbs Up
