Martin Tyler picks Liverpool incident over Sergio Aguero's winner as his favourite ever commentary moment

Martin Tyler picks Liverpool incident over Sergio Aguero's winner as his favourite ever commentary moment

When asked to name the favourite match of his career, legendary commentator Martin Tyler did not make the obvious choice.

Martin Tyler has named his favourite match of his commentary career, but it doesn't involve Manchester City or Sergio Aguero.

Tyler is one of the most famous voices in British football broadcasting, and soon he will celebrate half a century behind the microphone.

The 78-year-old has commentated on plenty of memorable games over the years, and in some cases his commentary has become just as famous as the on-field action.

One such incident was Aguero's last-gasp title-winning goal on the final day of the 2011/12 season. City scored two injury time goals to beat Queens Park Rangers 3-2, with Tyler's call of Aguero's winner arguably the most famous piece of commentary in Premier League history.

However, the veteran broadcaster has admitted that that's not his favourite game. Instead, he prefers Liverpool's dramatic 4-3 win against Newcastle in April 1996.

Collymore scored a 92nd minute winner to snatch the win for Liverpool, a result that ended up costing Newcastle the title.

When asked on the Sunday Edition on talkSPORT what his favourite game of his career has been, Tyler replied: "The first of the Liverpool 4 Newcastle 3's, the one ending with Kevin Keegan draped over the side of the advertising hoarding and 'Collymore closing in'.

"During the [Covid] pandemic, Sky Sports ran it again, and I had one of my children with me who has heard me banging on about the game and has never seen it.

"So we sat down and I remember thinking it wouldn't be as good as I remembered because that's the way it goes - it was better, even better.

"It had everything, from Liverpool scoring early, and then not leading again until Stan scored in added time, it was a brilliant match.

"Both were going for the title and neither of them won it, so there was a bit of frustration at the end of it."

Man City fans might be surprised, but Liverpool's dramatic win - and Tyler's commentary - will live long in the memory of anyone watching the early years of the Premier League.
