Sky panned on Twitter for screening Newcastle – Villa over Liverpool – Swansea [Tweets]
On Sunday afternoon Sky Sports had to decide which game to show at 1:30.
They chose Newcastle v Aston Villa over Liverpool v Swansea.
The Newcastle game was a dire, low-quality game of football in which Newcastle ran out 1-0 winners thanks to a stoppage time Loic Remy goal.
The Liverpool game was a 7 goal thriller with the game turning on its head on a number of occasions.
Users on Twitter voiced their displeasure at Sky.

It's ridiculous in this day and age that Sky can't give us the option to switch to the Liverpool game. This is an abominable game

Liverpool 3-3 Swansea. Newcastle 0-0 Aston Villa. That's a solid choice you've made Sky Sports.

Someone at Sky should be sacked for selecting Villa-Newcastle instead of the 4-3 Liverpool-Swansea humdinger! #Partidazo
