Before the game, during half time & now after the game it is all about Charlton. Sick of it.

Was just thinking the same. Can’t understand the Charlton love in for the life of me.

 Jim & Jamie mentioned it, that there were three punters up on the gantry, 2 ex Charlton players and 1 ex manager, no Fulham representation. Perhaps Sky have their favorites and we're not one of them.

Yep - definitely bias. Not sure why they are giving scumbag Bowyer so much air time and praise. And now he just said charlton should have fouled cav to stop him scoring - he thinks his players are too innocent

They said they kept Mitro quiet. Having a laugh. He was so all over them the only way they could contain him was to grapple,hold & shirt pull him at every set piece. Mitro gave his all & is my MOTM.

Makes me even more happy to have been at the match then!
Mind you it takes two teams to make a good competitive match so Charlton deserve some praise - first half particularly!

If we are not 1 of them why do they keep showing our matches, just to disrupt our fixture list?

Usually I don't care what commentators and "pundits" say, but I must agree that today the co-commentator (Keith Andrews?) annoyed me with excessively pro-Charlton comments, culminating in him saying that it would have been a "travesty" if Charlton had not got at least a draw.  A "travesty"?  They had slightly the better of the first half, we had much the better of the second half - Charlton defended with determination and we didn't get a third goal, so good luck to them, but it would hardly have been a "travesty" if we had won. It would have been a case of us taking one of our many chances, or one of the two shots which hit the bar going on - hardly against the run of play.

If they think Charlton defense kept Mitro quiet, then i am looking forward to how he goes with a defense that fails to keep him quiet.

We have a Moneybags reputation in the Championship which encourages Sky to load the pundits panel and favour the financial underdogs.
I am surprised that no one ha picked up on the fact that they considered Mitro’s goal to be offside although I have not seen their video proof.

My favourite Mitro moment yesterday was when he flattened 2 of their defenders at a corner.

 Mitro was off side in the build up but should have had a stone wall penalty in the first half. I try not to "buy" the bias line, but gave up with SKY pundits a couple of years ago as the bias was so unprofessional that it was a waste of time listening to it.
