Watch as a furious Jeff Stelling rips into Hartlepool

Hard not to feel for him...


Ah, poor Jeff.

With the season’s end in sight, Jeff Stelling, host of Sky’s Soccer Saturday, is fearing the worst for his beloved Hartlepool.

A win away at Leyton Orient would’ve given them breathing space at the bottom of League Two, relegating their opponents in the process.

Instead, Hartlepool lost the match 2-1, a result that leaves them in 22nd place, just a single point above Newport County in the relegation zone.

Jeff, working on an Easter Monday Soccer Special, couldn’t hide his frustration at the performance of some of the Hartlepool players. Having already made it perfectly clear that he felt some of them were displaying a distinct lack of effort, he suggested that he’d do a better job for them – despite being 62 years of age.

Jeff Stelling (Hartlepool supporter) just lost it!! ??. Know how he feels, so can sympathise.

Later, as news reached him that they’d missed a chance to level things up, Stelling once again let his annoyance be known.

Chin up, Jeff. It ain’t over yet, pal.
