These were the best jokes as BT Sport mistook James Collins for Andy Carroll during live coverage of last night’s FA Cup 4th round replay between West Ham and Liverpool.
The Hammers emerged as 2-1 winners thanks to an Angelo Ogbonna goal deep into extra time, but arguably the talking point of the night was BT Sport showing Collins sitting in the dugout when they’d clearly meant to show Carroll.
Well, that and Slaven Bilić leaving James Collins hanging on a fist-bump.
Now, check out these jokes about the bald, red-bearded James Collins getting mistaken for pony-tailed target man Andy Carroll:

Daniel Sturridge and Andy Carroll fighting fit and on the same pitch. A real 'where were you when?' moment.
