Matt Holland

We who live in the USA are blessed with live EPL games on NBC all weekend. Always a nice way to start Saturday morning at 6.30 am. That would be a 12.30 pm kickoff in the UK. Anyway NBC just hired Matt Holland as the second man in the commentator's booth. He was making calls at Manchester United versus Brighton on Saturday and talking about his time at Town and Charlton. Other ex players performing as pundits include Graham LaSaux, Robbie Mustoe, Robbie Earle and Lee Dixon. Not sure if these guys appear on UK channels. The show's anchor is Rebecca Lowe. From 9am on I am constantly checking my phone on ITFC.co.uk for match updates.

I've seen Matty on one of the analysis shows on NBC Gold. I think he does a fine job. He seems like an intelligent bloke. Of course my favorite presenter is Seema Jaswell...my goodness she's gorgeous!

We’re over to the US next week for a couple of weeks, I’ll be looking Seema up. 👍

With a name like that I’m guessing she’s of Indian origin ?

Yes indeed. She's actually a British presenter...not sure if she's with NBC or a British company.

In Canada we had Jason DeVos, and Craig Forrest until DAZN bought out the broadcasting rights

Rebecca Lowe is pretty easy on the eye too. I believe she was recruited from Sky. Think Sky is somehow part of NBC nowadays. She was one of the NBC team at the last Olympics. We get to see her every weekend on PL live where she keeps the boys in line.
