John Virgo

Postby japdot

Wondered why John Virgo wasn't in the commentators box, I never saw the section where John had his outbutst but I'm sure that he didn't mean for it to be broadcast, it sounds to me that someone knowing that John let's his feelings rule his mouth sometimes, deliberately left their mic switched on to cop him out because it's got an echo to it coming from someone else's mic, John is a good commentator and narrator he wouldn't have been aware that there was a mike switched on in the box during transmission.

Mcmanus is a very nice addition to the team.

Substance?

What the hell substance do you believe Virgo has? rofl

Are you missing his analysis of where the cueball is in relation to the pocket?

Yea but theres too much samey there the longest retired member of the commentators is Taylor followed by Parrott in 2010.

Theres room for a journo type that actually covers snooker as a day job.

Clive Everton is greatly Missed

Re: John Virgo

Postby SnookerFan

Willie Thorne getting demoted was a good start.

Virgo ain't going to be missed, and bringing in Angles is a continuation of good work.

If they could get rid of Parrott, get rid of Taylor, rehire Parrott and sack him again just to make sure he gets the message, warn Hendry that there's more to analysis then just predicting the highest ranked player will win, and bring in Foulds. That'd be good.

I can't see Everton being invited back. I wouldn't object if they used Griffiths more either.

Quite right.

If being paid to watch snooker is such a hardship, he can let somebody else do it.

He's a BBC pundit.

He's not paying to watch. So he won't be.

Wath Eurosport more and more now but I cannot stand Murray

I do like Hendry commentating, says it how it is



That is the problem isn't it?

For all the positives to Eurosport, Murray manages to nullify them alone due to his high end douchebaggery.

Re: John Virgo

Postby Chalk McHugh

Agree.Foulds is excellent.And the Eurosport commentators are good.I enjoy watching them but there's something nostalgic about BBC so i'll watch some of the 1pm games on BBC.Come on Ronnie!!

To be fair he said he'd never watched him "live."

So maybe he's seen him a few times on tv (he hasnt)

I didn't hear him say anything about not seeing him "live". He simply said this is first time I'll be seeing Mark Joyce play. Could be wrong, though.

He said "this is the first time I've seen Mark Joyce play live." I only remember because I specifically thought "or at all, let's be honest."

I was Eurosporting it for the first five or six frames, then Red Buttoned it in bed. Can't confirm.

I personally love the BBC commentators. They bring much more excitement to the game than the eurosport commentators. My favorites are Stephen, Steve, John Virgo and Dennis. I love the way Stephen and Steve look at the game and dictate it whereas John and Dennis bring a lot of excitement and are also good in cracking some funny jokes.
