website to find out how to get involved.
Before you do, check out these top tips from the man himself.
My name is Conor McNamara and I am football commentator for BBC Radio 5
Live and Match of the Day.
These are my top tips for football commentary.
Number one is enthusiasm.
You are the eyes of the listener inside the
stadium and what you got to do is convey the excitement.
When you're at the game and in the stadium you
can buzz off the crowd, you could see the movement, the colour.
The person listening at home can't see those
things so the enthusiasm, the exhilaration of the pace,
all those things have got to come through your voice.
Here comes van Persie.
He is onside this time.
It is a brilliant header.
Number two is knowledge.
Nobody is expected to know everything and if you tried to learn
everything you will feel.
Where it is really important to have had your
homework done and to know your stats and facts is that that is one less
thing to worry about during the game.
So when the play is happening you are not looking down your notes
trying to remember what the statistic is.
That is with the knowledge comes in and answers are very
important part of football commentary.
Number three is picture painting.
Painting a broader canvas.
You sum up the difference between the interaction
of the crowd and the players and it is all just
painting the pitcher in the minds
of the listener so that they feel they are actually there
It is Sergio Aguero.
Number four is delivery and this is very important.
You got to try and keep the attention of the listener
by keeping your sentences fluid.
That they can hear every word you're saying, you're still pronouncing
That is very important.
Even though you are getting excited and being
enthusiastic, don't get carried away.
What a shot.
What a goal!
My personal top tip for commentary is make sure you always
tell the listener where the ball is.
This is a common mistake and I did myself earlier in my career.
Where is the ball?
Did it go over the top?
Did the goalkeeper save it?
They will know by your voice it isn't a goal
but you got to say actually were the ball is and that is
something that you can forget because you can see it
in the stadium.
Don't forget your listener is only going by what you say.
Thanks a lot, Conor.
