It’s Mr Naef from before the Italians stole the life from his eyes.

This fancy scoreboard is entirely unnecessary. I like watching the primitive technology versions. Especially when they go wrong!

I know it’s based on the original scoreboard, but If you really insist on doing this, you could have made the replacement board less ugly.

8 points for Swindon. I didn’t know they were in it.

Hang on the original scoreboard already had a blinking light to show the winner! Why do we need this?

I assume the Dutch were shitting themselves about potentially having to host again around this point.

It’s a shame Morocco didn’t stick around. They got the political voting side of things VERY quickly.

Twitter reaction to the fake scoreboard seems to be slightly more positive than negative. Hope it's not here to stay.

It’s probably for the best that Ireland got the win. Otherwise, Anmary would have had to change the lyrics to her song.
