As a little laitee in Southern Africa it was Martin Tyler who I loved t listen to because to me you''re a LEGEND! I live in America,and I have been dying because the football commenting States side is a snorer. I am avid UNCLE SAM''s supporter and when I heard that ESPN have hired Martin Tyler to commentate I was overflowed with joy. Otherwise, I''d rather listen to the Spanish channel and watch futbol. MLS supporters would learn so much and some of my American friends enjoyed Martin Tylers commentating.

Thanks for the kudos Mr Tyler. It was agreat experience for us the children of the soil and it was a pleasure and an honour for us to play host to the whole planet. I watched an interview of you on one of our TV shows the other day, and you've always had positive things to say about our land. You're one of our own, Sir, and you're always welcome here. My best wishes go to you for all the future adventures you will be embarking on.

Martin is not aware that he has a great following in South Africa. The problem is that we always hear his commentary but are not shown his face! We had a glimpse of him for the first time during the World Cup when he was interviewed on our local sporting channel and my family was screaming out his name! Had his face been shown before, he would have been mobbed where ever he went! Martin you are a star!! Sydney, Pretoria South Africa.

South Africa 2010 was a big success.The organisation and the infrastructure was wonderful.South Africans were hospitable and welcoming.Drs Danny Jordaan and Irvin khoza and the government and the people of deserve a special pat on the back. The mystery of football particularly it's unpredicability was very visible.It was interesting to see how the favourites were toppled and we can conclude that football belongs to everyone who is dedecated and hardworking. I watch Martin Tyler speak to a supersport journalist on supersport bliz upon arriving in South Africa.You could not hide your excitement and that was very obvious. The awards were very logical.Diego Forlan made an indelible impact so too Mueller at just 20 years. Everything about South Africa 2010 was superb. There was also the new star Paul the octopus who had a 100percent predictibility record.Tthe coverage was suoerb and South Africa2010 was really a once in a life time event.
