Peter Drury's Commentary As Liverpool And Man City Players Walk Out The Etihad Tunnel Is Art

Peter Drury's Commentary As Liverpool And Man City Players Walk Out The Etihad Tunnel Is Art

One of the very best commentators doing what he does best.

Peter Drury has done it again.

From screaming "GOAL Bafana Bafana! Goal for South Africa! Goal for all of Africa!" after Siphiwe Tshabalala scored a screamer at the 2010 World Cup, to describing Kostas Manolas as ‘The Greek god in Rome’ when the defender’s netted a later header to knock Barcelona out of the Champions League on away goals.

The 54-year-old is responsible for some of the most iconic pieces of commentary in football history.

He is, without doubt, one of the best poets in world football. Some have even compared him to the great William Shakespeare.

And on Sunday afternoon, as Liverpool and Manchester City emerged from the tunnel ahead of a potential decider in the Premier League title race, Drury dropped another masterpiece.

As Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson stood side-by-side with Kevin De Bruyne, Drury began: “Energy, thrust and power, rolling red momentum, a perfect ten straight wins.

"Uncrushably self-certain, unyielding to the notion of surrender when not three months ago they seemed defeated.

“And City, whose throne for now at least it remains, this blue-bound textbook of jaunty, geometry of angles, the scintillating science of sport, precision engineering, frictionless football.

"They are just a thrill, two beautiful, beautiful football teams.”

Drury's words went down a hit with fans on social media. One said: "Shakespeare might give Drury a run for his money," while another wrote: "Peter Drury > Shakespeare. They need to start teaching kids about him in English classes."

Last year, Drury was named the Football Supporters' Association Commentator of the Year for the second time in his career.

In an interview with SPORTbible back in December, the 54-year-old says he continues to be “flabbergasted” by his popularity.

“It feels surprising to be honest. It’s a lovely thing, I can’t deny it,” Drury said about his award winning exploits. “I’m flattered by it, pleased by it. I try to give great respect to it because it’s voted for by fans, which is great.

“But with respect to whether it’s important in my head, I don’t take it too seriously because there are some very good commentators out there.

“If what I’m doing resonates with people then that is obviously a nice thing. I don’t set out to do that. I’m just very lucky that I do a job where I can express myself and enjoy football, and who wouldn’t love that?"
