EPL Pre-Match Team

First week of the season starting tonight. I'd just like to say, i really hope the "aussie crew" doing the pre-match build up coverage are only doing it tonight because its the first match. 

Please bring the usual British team back, Manish, Tim, Jermaine, Alan S, Ian W - actual players that have graced the game. What next Robbie Slater, with his 12 appearances for Rovers!

Sorry but as a paying customer I'm letting Optus know i dont pay to watch tonights pre-match team  - blabbing about who's in their fantasy team -  does anybody but them care?  Everyone with their stupid nicknames, schwarzie this and schwarzie that - whatever happened to just Mark? Sorry but just poor quality wanna-be larrikin-ship, gets old real quick for me; fine for the A-League.

This is EPL - lets bring the Pro's back in hey, thats what im paying for.

Re: EPL Pre-Match Team

Hi @IJD1


Thanks for providing your feedback on this. 


Our coverage of the early Saturday night Premier League fixture will be covered by our team in Australia, though our UK team will be with you for the rest of our coverage throughout the night.


I have flagged your post as feedback for the Optus Sport team.

Re: EPL Pre-Match Team

I couldn't agree more with the comment above, we want the proper UK version back, even for the early game. Why change something that wasn't broken? We want to listen to the pros, not this rubbish. I've been watching the proper Premier League pre game shows for years, even when Fox Sports had the rights. Bring back the original UK show, I'm not paying to watch an amateur Aussie version of the proper show, even if it's just the early game.

Re: EPL Pre-Match Team

The previous team from the uk was brilliant.... Had the right vibe
This show is from Sydney ( enough said )...... pity......I’ll pull the plug on this show until common sense prevails.
