Danny Murphy's FA Cup Semifinal Co-Commentary Was Enjoyed By No One

Danny Murphy's FA Cup Semifinal Co-Commentary Was Enjoyed By No One

BBC has gifted with arguably its best football match of the decade today when the two teams atop the Premier League met in an FA Cup semifinal at Wembley. It was a thrilling match with memorable moments and bloody memorable goals but for many viewers on social media, the occasion was soured by the co-commentary work of former Spurs player Danny Murphy. It is the default attitude of punters to rinse pundits on social media but Murphy came in for a notable bollocking across the match. Murphy's name was trending on Twitter in both the UK and Ireland right from kickoff, which is never a good sign. The names of Tommy Carr and Lawro were also evoked, which is even worse.

Punters did not appreciate Murphy's ability to state the obvious again and again.

Chelsea fans certainly did not appreciate a perceived Tottenham bias.

And no one liked Murphy mentioning the Wembley grass as an excuse for Spurs's loss today.

In fairness to Murphy his former teammate Ugo Ehiogu died yesterday, so you can understand why he might not be the most chipper man at Wembley, but it's rare to see fans so vociferously united against a co-commentator. No one had time for Murphy today.
