Good news everybody, the BBC have confirmed that legendary commentator Barry Davies will be returning to Match of the Day for one last fling.

You have to say that’s magnificent.

Sadly, Davies won’t be returning on any kind of permanent basis in order to show up the BBC’s incumbent stable of loud, over-involved and instantly forgettable dullards (*cough cough* Guy Mowbray, Jonathan Pearce *cough*) but rather the 76-year will be returning to the gantry on a special one-off basis as part of the MotD’s ongoing 50th-birthday celebrations…

In Davies’ own words: “OH, I SAY! BRILLIANT!”

And what kind of self-respecting football site would we be if we didn’t throw this Davies classic in to the mix too…

    Interesting….very interesting! Look at his face! Just look at his face!

  2. Chris says:

    His euphoric joy when Bergkamp scored against Argentina was magical.

  3. Jarren says:

    Superb news! I look forward to hearing that familiar, comforting voice one more time.

    But I do raise a point with you about the current BBC commentators, Chris.

    To me, the BBC have got some fine commentators at present. Mowbray in particular is a favourite of mine, and Pearce has come on leaps & bounds since his absolutely mental Channel 5 days.

    Much better than most of the ITV crew, at least.

    *I should elaborate that I am talking about actual commentators, not co-commentators / pundits
