Nah still like Tyler. Don’t mind his understated nature, no need to holler..let the crowd make the noise. Seems to call the players accurately and his comments still interesting enough.

Don't think it's understated, I think he's catatonic.

I think he’s class….still

He's 78, he's done. He has the voice but not the delivery or content. Nostalgia the only thing keeping him locked in at SBS. Thankfully done after this WC you would think.

He just talks crap as if he's the main attraction. The Cup brings together players from all over the world which aren't familiar to the majority of us who watch the Cup and we'd like to know who these players are, that is, their names, not some esoteric gobbledegook.

Kewell awful. Has offered no insight and was basically just cheerleading.

Also what was with him regularly stopping what he was saying mid sentence. Was weird.

How do we feel about Harry referring to the Socceroos as "we", "us" or "our" basically 50 times a game? I'd rather he didn't do it but that's perhaps an old school approach on my part.

Terrible. Commentary needs to objective.

Him calling Behich Aziz every time is horrendous.

Harry Kewell and most Australian commentators are crap. I know Martin Tyler has gotten a bad rap over the last few years but I would have him for every single SBS game, including Australia’s matches, over any of our own contingent of commentators.
