Chris Sutton savaged by Mark Chapman for 1970s decor as BBC pundits crack up

Chris Sutton is very much living in the 1970s according to his BBC Sport colleague Mark Chapman – who has noted the dated decor in the former Chelsea striker's house.

The pair were left in stitches after a message from a listener was added to by Chapman, who said the style of Sutton's home matched his views on the relationship between club owners and fans.

The pair were filming for Monday Night Club before the fits of laughter delayed their scheduling, with Sutton putting his head in his hands in apparent agreement.

Reading out messages from fans on BBC 5 Live, Chapman said: "This is another one that is anonymous: 'Hearing Chris Sutton talking about fan experience is a bit like hearing Lord Sugar talk about advertising. Of course winning makes all the difference but he must be living in the 1970s if he thinks you can't improve your relationship with your fans.'"

Chapman then added: "And if you've seen our clips from the Monday Night Club on social media and seen Chris' decor behind him, he very much is living in the 1970s."

As well as Sutton cracking up, Izzy Christiansen laughed out loud as Chapman tried to get on with the show.

Sutton, who was born in 1973, played for Norwich, Blackburn, Chelsea, Celtic and Aston Villa during his playing days, making a single appearance for England.

The striker managed 193 goals across his 546 club appearances, winning the Premier League with Blackburn in 1994/95.

He also picked up four Scottish Premier League titles during his time in above the border as well as three Scottish Cups and the Scottish League Cup.

Earlier in the week social media users thought Sutton had been hacked for an unexpected tweet about Love Island.

The 49-year-old tweeted on Monday: "This could be the best Love Island ever … some great characters and chat in there," followed by an island with a palm tree emoji.

"Surely he's been hacked," one fan wrote. Another tweeted: "Surely Sutton doesn't watch that cr*p, something must be wrong haha."
