SOCCER AM had to deal with technical issues which brought the show off air in it’s final ever show
The iconic programme went off air for several moments as it dealt with badly-timed hiccup.
Soccer AM is broadcasting its final ever instalment after nearly 30 years on.
But its popular ‘Shocker Saturday’ feature was derailed as a banner appeared on screen explaining the programme had to briefly go off air.
The sign appeared for less than a minute but was an unfortunate issue as the iconic show looked to go out on a high.
Fans did not mince their words with their verdict.
One said: “The last Soccer AM is an absolute shambles. Sad end to what was once a great show.”
Another tweeted added: “Soccer AM having a nightmare this morning! Good job it’s the last one.
While another observer said: “Soccer am losing the sound twice in the 5 minutes I have been watching it then literally crashing off air with a technical fault.”
The technical hitch followed earlier problems for host John Fendley as he took the programme to the car park.
As guest Stormzy faced Jimmy Bullard to see who could hit the crossbar most, Fendley’s microphone went completely.
The host had been coordinating the event but was left silenced by the moment, causing some awkwardness.
Stormzy appeared alongside beloved English actor Stephen Graham and comedian Jack Whitehall as Soccer Am got in the big-hitters for their final show.
But Graham and Whitehall were left gripping ice packs at the start of the show after a mishap.
