    If it ain't bad enough with ITV's football coverage including dodgy commentaries, no Sky HD coverage! Then this happens! :eek:

    BBC NEWS | Entertainment | FA wants answers over missed goal

    What makes it even more annoying is that they (ITV) have called this cock up a technical glitch! :rotfl:

    Got nothing to do with upsetting the sponsors then eh! :rolleyes:

    The PQ was bad enough (as always on ITV) and then that happened. I hate watching football on ITV.

    Better start thinking about all you're viewers first then!
    No wonder ITV is a shadow of it's former self.

    What made me laugh was ITV news at 10 afterwards, "Here's the goal if you missed it earlier" Yes I bloody missed it I was watching ITV!

    I think the station had chimpanzees in charge last night, loads of slip ups.

    I must be the only one who seen the goal live. On my tv, the match came back on about 10 secs before the goal was scored.

    I was hoping for penalties though as it was a really dull match. :(

    i watched the goal to it came back on after 10 seconds as well

    what was most amusing was i was cursing the commentary at the time,moaning how bad itv was and the wife was looking at me as if to say stop your moaning then when the match went off victor meldrew took over "wouldn`t of happened on sky"

    I detest itv coverage of football especially when champions league is on david pleat is enough to switch over:suicide:

    ITV very poor football coverage, I am sick and tired of the biase that is shown to the big clubs with regard to the FA cup games scheduled and the moronic commentators who seem to think we all want Man U and Liverpool to win when watching those teams play in europe.

    I am sure I heard a great chant at the last game I watched on ITV Leeds away to a non league team and the fans where singing "ITV coverage is ****" or something on those lines :rotfl:

    Well they've put adverts over the climax of an F1 race so why should football be any different? :)

    And at least ITV did more to see stop us seeing a goal than Lucas did. :D
