A cameraman has gone viral after he sings along to Ipswich fans’ chant of “Sky TV is f***ing sh*t” in the 2-2 draw with West Brom.
A video was recorded of the man operating the camera during the Championship clash on Saturday afternoon, seemingly joining in with the song sung from the stands.
The chant led to everyone looking towards the cameraman, with many amused after seeing him mouth the words, as can be seen below…

The lunchtime kick off between Ipswich and West Brom was televised live on Sky Sports Football with Chelsea loanee Omari Hutchinson striking in the 93rd-minute to salvage an important point for the Tractor Boys.
Kieran McKenna’s side, who won just one of their previous eight league games before taking on the Baggies’, fell behind on the 18th minute after Tom Fellows made his way in off the left and beat Vaclav Hladky at his near post.
Ipswich got one back within the first 60 seconds of the second half, thanks to Nathan Broadhead getting on the end of George Edmundson’s flicked a header into his path and smashed the ball home.
After Andi Weimann’s ‘Hand of God’ attempt led to a goal being ruled out, West Brom’s John Swift thumped in from 25 yards, putting them back in front.
But Hutchinson was there low a shot home with the result seeing the clubs stay fourth and fifth respectively in the Championship table.
Ipswich boss Kieran McKenna said to TownTV: “It was a really good game with a great atmosphere in the stadium and some really good chances created.
“There were lots of good things but there is of course some frustration in there, because it’s another where we had much the better of it and had the chances but weren’t able to come away with the three points.
“But there’s a great deal of pride in there with the effort the players gave and the quality of so much of the performance, as well as the atmosphere in the stadium because it was a great game to be involved in.
“When you go behind you know you’re chasing a game against probably the best team in the league at holding onto the lead, but we’ve scored two goals and should have had more. There are obvious big positives from the game.”
“It was very good again, both players and supporters,” he said on his team’s response to conceding.
“We’re on top in the game and playing well but in a frustrating phase where we don’t get what we feel the performances deserve, then they score from outside the box and make it easy to feel down.
“But the players and the crowd stuck right at it, the subs made a big impact and we have persisted to get the second goal. I don’t think we could have done anything more to get the third, really, and on another day we’re hear talking about a wonderful day and wonderful comeback.”
Kieran adds: “It was always going to be a battle and every game at this level is difficult.
“We’ve not lost two league games in a row for a long time and we’ve only lost to a couple of teams all season in the league, so I hope the supporters are proud of what they’ve seen out there today.
“Performing like that against a team like West Brom takes a lot of effort and now we have two tough away games against Millwall and then Swansea, so it doesn’t get any easier.
“What I’m seeing from this group is they’re up for the fight and up for every game, so let’s keep enjoying it.”
West Brom’s Carlos Corberán said, per wba.co.uk: “Unfortunately we didn’t achieve the result we wanted to achieve. We came here with a target to win it.
“We managed the game well in some moments and maybe in others, we didn’t create enough or attack enough.
“We were defending for too long against one team which has a lot of quality in attack.
“I value the effort and the commitment the players put into the game. We had a couple of difficult moments with the two injuries.
“Bartley first, who was a key a player today in terms of set-pieces and defending in their key areas.
“After we lost Bartley, we lost our striker Daryl Dike in the second half. The team put a lot of effort in to compensate these difficulties.
“Against Ipswich, the more that you defend, the less of a chance you have of winning the game.
“Only one team have beaten them here in the league and that was Leeds back in the summer.
“We were very close to winning, even though in some moments they were better than us.
“It’s a pity that we’ve conceded two goals in the second phase of a set-piece. The first one at the start of the second period and the second right at the end.
“We scored our second goal but there were still lots of things to do. We knew that we would have to defend a lot and protect our lead.
“For me, the key was to try and attack more, but unfortunately we couldn’t and it was a pity that they scored in added time.
“If the players hadn’t put that much energy into the game, it would have been really difficult to leave with a point.”
