    Thumbs up Nigel Reed-It's fan-tastic to watch !

    It's fan-tastic to watch


    When it comes to job satisfaction I reckon mine is hard to beat. Who would have thought when I came to Canada four years ago I could make a living talking about soccer? At the time it didnít even cross my mind.
    I mean think about it Ė I actually get paid for covering a sport which was in my blood probably before I could string together a coherent sentence. I get the best seat in the house with arguably the most spectacular view from any broadcast booth in North America. I get fed and watered and I donít have to fight the traffic to be at my desk at 9.00am sharp on Monday morning.
    I am treated with respect by my co-workers in a friendly but professional atmosphere and I get to work with some of the best producers and directors in the business. The evolution of the game as a professional sport in Canada has been astounding and I am immensely proud and grateful for the opportunities that have come my way.
    Truly, there is no downside to my working life. Well, alright thereís one Ė I canít just be a fan. Iíve always firmly believed that to do my job you first have to be a fan. You have to feel what the fans feel to be able to relate to them and interpret the game in a way that complements the pictures rather than conflicts with them.

    He must have been in the prawny section - he left his seat before the goal went in. LOL

    gotta love nigel reed, hes classic.

    on his voice profile website he pitches his voice as:
    "Most British regional accents - from London cockney, through rustic Cornishman, to Yorkshire farmer, plus Python-esque "female" characters. Can also deliver credible North American and Australian dialects"

    I think someone has to convince him to do a whole TFC game in a python-esque female voice.
