ITV Fail As Patronising Adrian Chiles Is Cut Off By The Adverts: Stoke City Fans Relieved

by | 14th, May 2011

MANCHESTER City win the FA Cup and ITV’s Adrian Chiles performs a majestic fail. In seeking to patronise praise Stoke City fans for sticking behind at Wembley for a few moments rather than making a dash for the exits and the long drive home, Chiles opined:

“Full credit to Stock fans. On these occasions too many fans from the losing team…”

His trite words ended abruptly as TV fans of all tribes were turned away from the football and onto a few minutes of adverts.

This is ITV, which managed to broadcast an advert in place of Steven Gerrard’s goal for England at the last World Cup.

Football on ITV – it really is that bad…
