So how did Newcastle boss Pardew see feed of Fulham game without it being televised?

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew's ability to see their defeat to Fulham from his hotel room has been explained.

Pardew, currently banned, was able to watch full coverage of his side's defeat at Fulham on Sunday at his hotel despite the match not being televised live and none of the TV rights holders or Premier League Productions providing him a feed.

The Daily Mail says Pardew viewed the action with a club analyst via an online Scout7 streaming of the match. Scout7 are one of a number of sophisticated football systems companies employed by clubs for scouting information and detailed game analysis.

They have an agreement with the Premier League to film games provided it is for secure password-controlled football industry use only.
