British football fans seem to have developed an animosity toward the football commentary on Amazon Prime Video- the official Premier League streaming partner in the UK, and the dislike is visible on social media.
Stuart Pearce, the former Hammers manager, is the latest of the Prime pundits to be trolled for his analysis during Manchester United’s meeting with Nottingham Forest at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Aother one asked: “Stuart Pearce and Michael Owen as pundits? Is @PrimeVideo running out of money already? #MUNNFO.”
“Stuart Pearce was good on Talksport during the World Cup but showed zero appetite for shenanigans. So he’s probably fewmin at Evra pissing about during analysis and will give him a reducer during the next break,” joked another.
Pearce was born in London on April 24, 1962. He is an English professional football manager and former player who most recently served as West Ham United’s first-team coach in the Premier League.
Due to his harsh kind of play, he was given the moniker “Psycho.”
