No surprise that Jim White was doing yesterday's Scotland match, he normally does. I should have put the England U-21's in my previous post, as that is what Payne has covered for the last couple of seasons.





thers no way the BBC could try to do Score ,its so bland Ray Stubbs could never do Jeff Stelling i wonder why they tried to poach him hes class and the ribbing he does even to wind up Alan Mac .

and he isn't doing tonight's Carling Cup tie between Peterborough and Everton either (it's Jeff Stelling) - he must have really pissed someone off.

Did he do Carling Cup last year? I know he done the FA Cup.

he did Carling Cup and the FA Cup plus England U21 and the occasional Premiership and Conference game. I understand he wasn't as good as Sky expected but i thought he was improving and to remove him from all live games seems a bit harsh.



also Johnnie I was just scanning your Sky Sports profiles and you still have Mark Bolton as a touchline reporter - he now does the Spanish football.

And I believe Sky have given Tim Lovejoy the chair for tomorrow nights Carling Cup match

and he was rubbish as well - can't read the autocue (and bizarrely was able to get away with not wearing a jacket and tie unlike everybody else).



keep him on Soccer AM - away from serious broadcasting - please.

I think Sky employs enough people who can do a presenting job without having to go for that goon, he is overrated

Tim Lovejoy presenting something a bit more serious - glad I missed it.
