Really? He's been pretty subpar. Thankfully I'm flying into Berlin days before the Final so I won't be forced to watch it with Gus Johnson announcing....what a joke Fox.
Even though he attended some kind of soccer boot camp, his knowledge is below average
- Benetiz won the 2005 Champions League with Chelsea
- Manchester United won every title but one in the Premier League era
- Hazard and Mata had about 4 different pronunciations of their names
And he adds nothing strategy wise to the telecast. His announcing is a little over the top, exhibiting no calmness which is a staple in United Kingdom play by play. When FSC does the weekly highlights & lowlights, his announcing clearly sticks out like a sore thumb.
Could be worse but could also be better. Hopefully he improves for the World Cup. ESPN has all the good announcers locked up.
