i don't know what to say, i suppose i'll give it a shot but to be honest i can't see it being a real success. i imagine they will try nad make it as much like soccer am as possible which i think will be a bad move, doing this will probably make it just look like the allsports show

I'm not so sure Simon Thomas is the right choice?? But I'm struggling to think of a suitable light-hearted male presenter for this type of show. Anita Rani should be ok though

Simon also did a few Soccer AM All-Sports Shows last year as well, plus he's got experience doing that sort of show given his years on Blue Peter.



It looks like Sky are pushing the boat out now that they have exclusive rights to all live test matches.

I just hope they dont ruin it,like they do with the football,match starts at 10.30,program starts at 8.30 with 2 hours of so called experts givin it large.They give the British Superbikes the full treatment last year and this season they arent even showing it live
