Things were so bad for Bournemouth this weekend that even the public address announcer got in on the criticism. Or so fans in attendance thought. From Bleacher Report UK:
It seemed as though Bournemouth’s man behind the microphone had been fairly critical of the Cherries during their 5-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon, after an apparent gaffe went viral on Twitter.
“F–king unbelievable” and “men against boys” were the choice of words heard throughout the stadium in what seemed, at first glance, to be the PA announcer forgetting to switch his microphone off.
It turns out, the PA announcer is officially off the hook, as the comment wasn’t made by him despite pumping through the stadium loud speakers. That microphone channel, it seems, was accidentally hacked by a Spurs fan named Barnaby Slater, a presenter for the supporter site SpurredOnTV.
