Martin Tyler is definitely not a favourite commentator among Liverpool fans but he hardly does himself any favours.
Rather than concentrate on the Reds’ scintillating attacking performance, he chose to constantly refer back to the marginal offside call that went Mo Salah’s way for the opening goal during his commentary of the Bournemouth game.
Salah was literally a centimetre offside, so no blame could be attached to the assistant referee, and the Reds were well on top in the game regardless of that decision going their way.
Reds fans were less than impressed with his commentary.
Martin Tyler basically suggesting that if we don’t get the 1st goal then we don’t get another….DICK.

Is this the most ridiculous commentary of all time. Martin Tyler, “ There hasn’t been much between the 2 teams 🙄 Liverpool 4 – 0 up and been in complete control since start with Bournemouth not having a single shot on target.

Did anyone count the number of times Martin Tyler mentioned the offside first goal? Such a bitter Manc

Pity our fantastic away noise couldn't manage to drown out Martin Tyler disgraceful commentary . Bitter about salahs opener for 94 minutes. Depressing monotone talk while the league leaders put in a quality away win and the premier leagues highest ever scorer bags a hatrick.

Only time Martin Tyler got excited throughout that game is when Bournemouth got a free kick.
Classic Tyler, not much between the teams besides the scoreline!

It wasn’t quite Anthony Martial levels of bias, but we think both Reds fans and Martin Tyler himself would prefer it if Sky Sports didn’t put him on Liverpool games in future.
Even if the Salah goal had been disallowed, we’d still have won the game!
