For many English football fans of a certain vintage, Peter Brackley’s voice is synonymous with one thing and one thing only: Football Italia.
However, Channel 4’s calcio commentator also lent his dulcet tones to most of the first incarnations of the Pro Evolution Soccer games, from Pro Evo 2 right through to Pro Evo 6 if memory serves.
Indeed, Brackley formed a dynamic double act with Trevor ‘He’s On The Rampage’ Brooking which really added a bit of sparkle to those early titles.
Anyway, down to brass tacks. What we have in our possession here are Brackley’s outtakes from his first Pro Evo 2 commentary reel and it is – without any exaggeration – one of the funniest things we’ve ever heard!
Please, no more talk. Just listen…
Massive thanks to our compadre, crack football scribe Jack Lang (@jacklang), for bringing this miniature masterpiece to our attention.
What a treat!
