Fans say Sky Sports are ‘standing by Gary Lineker’ after embarrassing gaffe during Fulham vs Arsenal clash
ARSENAL’S opening goal at Fulham did not get the usual excitement on Sky Sports because the commentary had cut out – prompting plenty of Gary Lineker jokes.
The team on the gantry at Craven Cottage lost their feed just after the 20-minute mark.

That forced David Jones to step in as an emergency from the studio.
And the first thing he had to do was call Gabriel’s header to break the deadlock, turning in Leandro Trossard’s inswinging corner.
Unsurprisingly, it did not take long for viewers at home to joke the Sky commentators were boycotting their duties to stand with the Lineker following his BBC suspension.
