Sad to hear he passed away age 67, Enjoyed listening to him on Football Italia with Ray Wilkins back in the 90's.RIP

Best commentator ever and vastly under-utilised. He and Wilkins together were especially good.

Sad news.

I love it when we don't sell Kevin Nisbet,
He's gonna score in every game 'til Christmas,
And every touch is goal la la la, it's goal la la la,

Very sad indeed. Very few commentary teams added to the game the way that they did.

Best football commentator there was. I have no idea how he got overlooked so much. RIP Peter.

Didn't realise he'd worked on Spitting Image as well.

I don't know if he's high profile enough but a wee tribute show would get some viewers.

James Richardson does a specialist Golazzo podcast on Italian football, which uses the original music to football Italia, and there was a BT Sport documentary on the series which was aired a few months back. I reckon they could put together a Best of Brackley on Football Italia and it would get a few viewers.

The thing I always enjoyed was the banter he had with the ex-pro beside him. He'd throw in the odd comment or question which was more pub chat than serious football commentary. It helped give Football Italia a completely different feel to anything that had been on before.
