Whether you’re a Game of Thrones fan or not, Arlo White’s opening commentary on NBCSN for a different kind of game last night against Newcastle has gone viral.
With a horde of references to the hit HBO series, Arlo White’s well-wrought introduction to our own epic showdown in the Premier League has got the thumbs up from a host of Reds fans.
Even Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who stars in the show, was a fan of Arlo’s MCing.

“Jürgen Klopp will send his red dragons out to scorch the St James’ Park turf so he can spend another long night on the Iron Throne; lose and Liverpool’s quest for glory in the north will fizzle out like a Dothraki cavalry charge,” White lyrically waxed.
Thankfully, we came through the battle with a victory, but it was not without its share of tragedy as Mohamed Salah fell in battle after colliding with Martin Dubravka.
It came the same day that Nathan Aké saluted his late winner earlier in the day against Tottenham Hotspur with an Arya Stark dagger celebration in another nod to the popular programme.
