First games on Amazon tonight. Any idea who the commentators are for them? 

Amazon is going big, with 43 presenters, commentators and pundits signed up - including high-profile ex-players Alan Shearer, Jermaine Jenas, Michael Owen and Thierry Henry - and well known broadcasters such as Gabby Logan, Conor McNamara and Guy Mowbray.

Each game will be broadcast live and there will also be a separate goals show.

It is not known how much money Amazon paid for its 20-games-a-season three-year contract. It also has the exclusive rights for the Boxing Day round of games on 26 and 27 December.

I'm sure those of us used to watching streams will be able to handle this..

Analysts from streaming firm Phenix said Amazon's broadcast of the US Open was often up to 45 seconds behind the TV transmission.

The BBC has worked out how to eliminate streaming lag - but it could take years for that fix to be implemented.

So for the meantime, fans might have to avoid watching the games alongside Twitter updates, text messaging or BBC Sport goal alerts. Or even, gulp, put your phone down for 45 minutes.

Not watched any games tonight but apparently you can turn commentary off and just have stadium noise 

Its big Jim Beglan doing the summary in the City game. He is alright. Always reminds me of our run to the Manchester uefa cup final when I hear him.

How does he get punditry work for three different organisations? He’s awful.

I heartily agree. I just copied and pasted what was on the BBC website sports page. 

I caught him on 5 live a few weeks back and he was spouting the biggest load of pish. 

I actually tried out the zero commentary option for the last 20 minutes and it was pretty good.

The decisions Liverpool are getting with VAR are nothing short of corrupt.

What happened this time mate?

Losing 5 in a derby whilst your rivals rested players. Silva surely gone by 12pm tomorrow?

Walter Smith was the last Everton manager to win at Anfield.

Everton’s record against Liverpool in general is pathetic. 10 years since their last win!

VVD quite clearly fouls an Everton player at 2-1. Penalty and potential red card as last player and no attempt to play the ball. 
 

VAR checked it (was watching it during our HT) and it was the quickest check I’ve seen as well.
