Sex-crazed loopy commentator celebrates Real Madrid’s La Liga win


31st, July 2007


Pies might just have a new favourite football commentator in the shape of former Newcastle United player Ray Hudson. Ray is the star of GolTV’s soccer coverage. We first noticed him following the Copa America final. His commentary makes him sound like the lovechild of Jonathan Pearce and Gazza who has popped a couple of Prozac prior to kick-off. Listen at him towards the end of Real Madrid’s La Liga win.

    Braver than a matador in high heels and a pink tutu?
    holy jebus

  2. Can we trade him for Alan Green? says:

    Tears the size of pineapple chunks!
    There’s nothing quite like hearing someone so utterly passionate about football and prescription medication in full flow.
    Beautiful, just beautiful.

  3. Abby says:

    Oh, Ray. Don’t ever change. I think if we had him announce every game, more Americans would enjoy football…

  4. Martha says:

    I don’t get the love for Hudson, he makes me want to stab out my own eardrums, just so I never have to hear him again. If uses the word “brave” one more time, I may shoot him myself.

  5. dp says:

    there should be a law in america requiring all soccer matches to have a crazy, heavily medicated ex-Premiership player doing color commentary. Also, as an amendment, Dave O’Brien and any former US national team player should be barred from broadcasting for life.

    I posted this in a comment just after it had happened, I’m glad this finally got posted to here. I turned the game on at about halftime and proceeded to laugh for the rest of the game thanks to this guy. He needs to do more games, esp premiership ones.

  7. EricTheGreen says:

    This isn’t even the best of him…3-odd minutes on when Tom Cruise(!) appears in the crowd, is referenced by Ray’s broadcasting partner, Ray goes absolutely mental for about 30 seconds. I was waiting for foamy spittle to fly out of my television’s speakers afterwards.
    Pies editors, please extend the clip to include this…priceless.
    I, too, love Ray and hope he finds a wider audience here in the U.S.

  8. Dave Lee says:

    “Braver than a bull fighter with no knickers on!”
    Best line of commentary I’ve ever heard.
    I feel a “Get Ray Hudson on Match of the Day” Facebook group coming on.

  9. Alex says:

    Hudson is the VERY WORST pundit in the history of punditry. He talks nonsense for hours on end about the most banal subjects. i watched the entire Copa America with no sound.

  10. Jared says:

    I remember Ray calling Tom Cruise a prick and saying he isn’t fit to smell a jock strap.
    Hudson is easily the Harry Carey of football. I wish he did Prem matches.

  11. Brandon says:

    My friend once described Hudson’s blabbering as “listening to gravel being thrown down a well.”

  12. Dave Howe says:

    He sounds a lot like Sid Waddell off the darts.
