If you’re not familiar with the story, the Everton v Liverpool FA Cup fourth round replay was televised live on ITV on Wednesday night. After 118 goalless minutes, Everton scored right at the end to knock their arch rivals out of the cup. Worth waiting for, you’d think. ITV, however, had accidentally cut to an advert for Tic Tacs and missed the goal. If I were an Everton fan watching at home, I’d be absolutely seething. ITV’s football coverage has always been poor, but this was unforgivable.
Also, Liverpool signed Robbie Keane from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer for £20 million only to sell him back to Tottenham again this week for £12 million because it didn’t work out. I thought I might as well spoof that while I was at it. Try to ignore the dodgy Photoshopping and the fact that Robbie Keane seems to have grown 8 inches.
