Sky Sports or MUTV – fans hit back at ‘biased’ coverage

Sky Sports did themselves absolutely no favours among Hammers fans with their coverage of the Hammers victory over Manchester United on Sunday.
They assembled  one of the most one sided commentary and pundit set-ups ever for a game of football with United  related indviduals Gary Neville, Roy Keans and Jose Mourinho on the premises with no Hammer past or present involved.
Here’s how Hammers fans at ClaretandHugh’s Facebook group responded https://www.facebook.com/groups/363174467150521/

O Gary Neville  spoke of Man United from start to finish. It really got to me as it seemed as there was only one team playing. Complete and utter joke. So biased.

O Some of Gary Neville’such as when Mark Noble took his shot side the box sicken me
O We need to keep going and stay in the top 6 – that’s how you force those smugs to pay you some respect. It just seemed me that media stole the hype of a great win from us. I  would understand more if it was Man United at home . It  would just have been nice got the credit thoes lads deserve for the
O An ex Hammer would have been a “little” fairer but I quite enjoyed Neville simmering away all game
O We shouldn’t be surprised. Sky have always had a love in with Liverpool & Man U, which was reflected it in their pundits yesterday. 2 ex Man U players, 1 ex Man U manager & 2 ex Liverpool players. Hardly balanced. Not until the 86th minute did Gary Neville admit we were the better team.
O It was not only Sky, I watched MOTD  as I missed the first half only to hear them say something about not worth watching. Then at the end the pundits just kept on about Man Utd didn’t play well, had no spark, no energy etc etc
O Neville will lose any credibility he had – if any!!
O Neville comparing Declan to McTominay was laughable. They’re not on the same planet.
O The  TV coverage was appalling, the worse I have ever seen for a Hammers game. It was like Unitd we’re playing an invisible team. It was if we didn’t exist.
Makes my blood boil, the utter bias towards the so called bigger clubs. It doesn’t help when Sky have the likes of Neville, Carragher and Souness, not wanting to say a bad thing about the clubs they play for.
O Neville and Keane, both Ex Man U and both failed to succeed as managers …so why expect anything else ?

  1. Was it not Neville who has recently criticised Rice,yes the same Rice that is an England international.Didn’t he also say that Haller,Lanzini and Anderson were not good enough to play for the “big” clubs.Tell me is that why West Ham beat Bayern to Haller,Is that why Lanzini was wanted by Liverpool and is that why Anderson is in the Brazilian squad?Neville,I beginning to think you know very little about football and no wonder you’ve ended up at sky,they employ anyone who needs a job.

    • Spot on Steve and was it not Neville who failed big time when trying to become a manager in Spain, lol. Let them carry on with their bias, it’d be great to see them implode whilst we go quietly and successfully on about our business. I heard comments about being embarrassed losing to us, I think they should look back and be proud they only lost by two. COYI

  2. Sky football coverage appaling as ever I’m afraid. West Ham weren’t brilliant to be fair but played some nice stuff and created so much more but all Neville sees is the United performance. I’m not sure he’s actually worth his place on the Sky team. Why not invite Rio or Teddy on. Players who played for both clubs. Get a more honest and even view.

  3. Thought it was a total joke to be fair. Taking the mickey out of Noble when he was probably the best person to play the corner to and volley,slagging off the viewpoint they had as miles away. Best thing though was Neville getting more and more irate and frustrated lol. Fkin nobhead
