Complaints From An Armchair.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Am I the only armchair fan who noticed
We couldn’t see most of the pitch?
Commentary sounded like it was underwater
Tinny and hard to distinguish.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We live in an age of technology
Where computers do all the work
Yet the architect built the national stadium
Has left half of the pitch in the dark.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Malouda’s “goal” was well over the line
As the telly clearly showed
What if the game went to extra time
And them Toffee’s had stole the show?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 There were millions of punters just like me
Tuned in to the televised match
Yet the sound and pitchure (sic) quality
Were abysmal and that’s a fact!

Notes

I watched Saturday’s F.A.Cup Final indoors on I T V only because,
I couldn’t get a ticket for the match. Never again, commentators Jim Beglin and Clive Tyldesley sounded like they were speaking from a submarine underwater. Give them a soundproof box please!

Half of the pitch was barely visible, due to a shadow blocking it out, which took the techno people most of the game to adjust so we could finally (sic) see it properly.

Some ex-pro was asked for his point of view on proceedings so far during the half time interval. Which by the time I went out of the living room, made the half time tea and came back again, he hadn’t managed to fathom an answer for. So it was a good job Joe Royle and Andy (man who pulls many faces) Townsend were next to him to keep the chat going or we’d have still been there now waiting for a reply from said ex-pro and missed the second half altogether.

Florent Malouda’s shot was clearly in, so far in, in fact that it hit a train passing through Wembley Park underground station and bounced back in to Tim Howards arms. Time to raise the age old question of the goal- line technology again perhaps?

All of the above in front of a World wide televised audience of millions for one of the biggest occasions on the sporting calendar as the T V company proudly told us prior to the game starting.

Embarrasing or what?

Was the game a sell out? I could have sworn there were blocks of empty seats. A mate who went to the game told me that Everton fans were sitting in the Chelsea end. I take that to mean some Chelsea fans had flogged their seats at great profit to some tout who’s sold them on again to whoever, and not gone to the match anyway???

Peace

Kev.
