Something about Sky's subtitles didn't quite add up

The raw emotion of the first Premier League match of the season at Anfield was on full show on Monday night as Liverpool battled to a 1-0 victory over newly-promoted side Bournemouth in a closely-fought contest.

As the club’s famous anthem “You’ll Never Walk Alone” belted out over Merseyside with the Kop once again filled with flags, banners and scarves as it has become accustomed to over the years, the Cherries will have got the message over what it means to be in the Premier League.

But unfortunately for broadcasters Sky Sports, somebody previously dropped the ball when it came to the subtitles of the passionate song.


Impressively, the messages appearing on the screen included the chants coming from the home crowd, though when it came to the chorus there was a rogue word that suddenly appeared out of nowhere.


As the picture above shows, the subtitles read: “Walk on, walk on. Ebola…”

Clearly, this isn’t correct. The correct lyrics see “Ebola” actually replaced with “with hope in your heart”, and the error only gets worse given that the word before the sentence reads “love” when it should be “lark”.
