Hammers fans left sunk by unwatchable ‘stream’

Arnie set to return

Those looking forward to watching the Hammers first semi competitive match against Wycombe Wanderers via a club You Tube stream this afternoon were  sunk .

There are bad streams, awful streams and then there was this excuse for a broadcast which saw extensive buffering throughout the first half.

Eventually the entire thing started again from the beginning but with regular jumping and skipping of the action including the most important part of all – Marko Arnautovic’s 34th minute goal.

During the very few moments when it was possible to see a bit of action, Issa Diop looked calm and composed, Robert Snodgrass appeared to do ok and Mark Noble looked lively.

The club gave up at halftime when a statement appeared on Twitter saying they couldn’t show the game because of technical difficulties.”

  1. It had me worried big time my iMac packed up this morning, then I settle down to watch the Wycombe friendly and see how the new signings are looking and thought the iPad had gone down as well!!
    Still, roll on Villa & 18/8 for the teal thing. It’s been a long, but interesting & a hopefully productive closed season.

  2. So thats why it was unavailable to me in the second half. I thought I had been Brexited.

  3. How many times do I have to say it. ‘Live stream means live stream’ Ooooerrrr…..

  4. If Facebook live worked for the last game why not use that ?
