    Chris Kamara gave a hilarious response to a joke tweet about a supposed obstructed seat at Everton’s new stadium – that isn't even at the Merseysiders' ground.

    The Toffees’ new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, Liverpool, is currently under construction. It is set to replace Goodison Park for the 2024/25 season, with fans delighted at the increased capacity to 52,888 and a range of state of the art features.

    But a picture on social media of a strange seat, where one unlucky fan would be left unable to see the pitch, left many scratching their heads – despite Everton supporters pointing out it's not actually at the new stadium at all, as no seats have gone in yet.

    The viral photo – from an unknown ground in Poland, and not in fact Bramley-Moore Dock – shows a builder seated on the edge of a stand, with his view completely obstructed by a grey wall.

    It prompted one Twitter user to joke by tweeting legendary Sky Sports commentator Chris Kamara. They wrote: “Kammys seat by the looks of it @chris_kammy,” to which Kamara jokingly replied: “I musta missed that.”

    The tweets referenced Kamara’s iconic line from 13 years ago, where the commentator missed a red card while reporting on a game between Portsmouth and Blackburn.

    Sky Sports Soccer Saturday host Jeff Stelling had, as he normally does, switched to Kamara’s game for an update after hearing of a red card for Pompey’s Anthony Vanden Borre.

    But that was news to the former Swindon man, who was completely oblivious to the events happening behind him.

    Stelling asked: “We’re going to go off to Fratton Park where there’s been a sending off but for who, Chris Kamara?”, to which he innocently replied: “I don’t know, Jeff… has there? I must have missed that.”

    The pair, joined by fellow pundits in the Sky studio, begin laughing uncontrollably.

    Eventually, it turned out Kamara had seen Vanden Borre trudge off the pitch but thought he had been substituted, instead of being shown a second yellow card. Still, Kamara saw the humorous side when others would have been embarrassed beyond belief.
