Euros 2021 (Men's)

Was anyone watching Denmark last night? Was the TV coverage bad? I can't work out whether Twitter was over-reacting or not.

When they resumed Gary Linekar apologized that the camera showed the first aiders performing cpr etc rather than immediately cutting away, but that it was out of BBCs control. Showing Eriksen's wife in tears seemed bad taste as well, but as some people said, you can change the channel.

I guess it's the TV equivalent of rubber necking.

Considering they usually don't repeat bad tackles, to show proper CPR (not the TV type where there's zero compression.. ) and his body jumping with an administered defib shock, I was surprised they didn't cut back to the studio sooner - I do get they weren't controlling the images.
People ain't gonna switch over cos you're watching to make sure he's OK too.
It was horrible and very emotional to see.

We will pay the price but we will not count the cost..

I didn't know about this until later on when he was conscious in hospital so I've not seen any of the TV coverage but I'm not buying that.
Yes they have no control what the local TV shows but the ability to switch that off and cut back to Lineker et al in the studio is always there.

Luckily he seems to be recovering well though I'll be surprised if he kicks a ball professionally again.

I think I would prefer to concentrate that he's ok than any bad taste in coverage

Someone said they cut to a camera on his wife in the stands, if that's true someone should lose their job over that.

Didn't see much of the game today, was in a pub a long way away from a screen. Did we play ok?

Philips was very good, a bit too good so noone else seemed to bother much ;) actually that's unfair, Stirling and Mings helped out when needed.

I didn't see the Wales game, but one of the comments was along the lines of "If Bale was anyone else he would have been substituted". You could say that about Kane, if the commentators hadn't said "Kane's hardly been in the game" every now and again, I would have assumed he wasn't on the pitch.

shame about Scotland, I'm glad Che Adams and Armstrong got to play, Adams made an impact when brought on, Armstrong quieter than when he plays for Saints.

Good goals by Czech Republic though.

Should have played Tierney! Also, glad they didn't, really want him in cotton wool for next season. :)

That second goal... oof.
