Fans switch off Milan vs Newcastle when they see who’s hosting Man City clash
FANS switched off Newcastle’s Champions League draw with AC Milan.
That’s after realising Laura Woods was hosting Man City’s clash on TNT Sports.
Premier League giants Newcastle and City both played their group stage opener on Tuesday.
Eddie Howe’s Magpies were first up on TNT Sports 1 after landing the 5.45pm kick-off.
But their performance against Milan was far from thrilling, leaving the San Siro with a 0-0 draw.
And supporters claimed they turned off in their droves to catch the build-up to Man City’s game with Red Star on TNT Sports 2.
That’s because they realised popular pundit Woods was hosting the pre-match action.
She made the switch to TNT Sports, formerly BT Sport, after leaving talkSPORT this summer.
Woods was joined on the Etihad pitch by ex-City star Joleon Lescott and former Man Utd ace Rio Ferdinand.
And fans quickly took to Twitter knowing they had made the right decision.
