An Outrage!

Adrian Chiles makes a MASSIVE prediction cock up!

Chiles – what was he thinking?

Adrian Chiles 

A rather important member of The Spoiler team used to work for the BBC, at one stage enduring the crippling job of answering the various email complaints sent in from old women who just wanted a hug, but could only express themselves through spikiness and venom – a bit like Jack Nicholson in As Good As It Gets, only with considerably saggier bosoms.

A typical letter read something like this:

“Dear BBC

I sat down to watch the Eastenders Omnibus at 2.15pm on Sunday, only to find that it didn’t start until 2.17pm.

Needless to say, I was livid…”

Great times. Anyway, our furious friends aren’t the only one picking holes in “Auntie”, as The Spoiler has spotted a gargantuan MOTD2 cock-up. 

Although slightly distracted by the use of weird graphics, echo effects and spooky lighting – all at the licence fee payer’s expense, growl growl, grumble grumble etc… – an eagle-eyed member of the team noticed that Adrian Chiles had predicted wins for both Man United AND Chelsea, when the teams meet at the beginning of April. See for yourself here (at 0.53 mins, and then 1.23).

Needless to say, The Spoiler is livid.
