A Conversation With Derek Rae is pure football poetry. One of football’s finest voices, Derek always paints a beautiful picture through his commentary. Do you know anyone who can marry the famous poet Robert Burns with football?

From Team GB and the Olympics to all things Premier League including Luis Suarez, John Terry, Robin van Persie, Andre Villas Boas, Brendan Rodgers, Manchester City, mid-level clubs and beyond, Derek discusses it all with an honest perspective. There’s even time to talk a wee bit of Rangers!

Football, soccer, call it what you want, it’s just like being down the pub with your mates.

    Love this guy’s voice when he commentates. He is as good if not better than Ian Darke.

    Oh and probably my favorite Conversation With of all the series you’ve posted. Great in depth dialogue about the Premier League which is the most exciting.

    Nice work Soccerdiva!

    Calcio is my first love of course but when it comes to English football I do like Derek Rae’s opinions. Plus unlike other commentators he doesn’t seem to have an EGO!! I know we ITALIANS do have egos, but there are way too many in sports. Derek seems like one of the good guys AND he has the knowledge!!!! :)

    The summer transfer window is like waiting for Christmas. You have an entire list of things you want, you hope you get them all and in the end, even if just a few things on your list make it under the tree, you're fine with that!

    I fancy Arsenal to win the Community Shield against Chelsea in a few weeks. #factsonly
