Rob McCaffrey is leaving Sky Sports with immediate effect to host English football coverage in Dubai. http://www.7days.ae/showstory.php?id=51999http://www.7days.ae/showstory.php?id=51999>

That leaves several key roles to fill; Goals On Sunday, Soccer Special, & England U-21. Perhaps Jeff Stelling will be back on SS as Monday Night Premiership matches are no more for Sky? I hope so. Another big blow to Sky though after Lovejoy quit earlier this week.

its a shame Rob has really grown into one of Sky's best presenters. I guess it will see David jones' profile continue to rise and operhaps more domestic action for the very under-utilise Mark Bolton? I would expect Jeff will still do some of the live matches wont he?

These departures (and i bet there will be more) are a suprise for the viewers, but i don't think that they'll be a suprise for the compnay.

These departures are why more and more Sky Sports News presenters are moving up the pecking order when it comes to presenting other sports on Sky Sports.

Clare deserves more chance on Sky Sports than just doing Football First and being on Champions League and occasionally on SSN. It was good to see her doing the Under 21s and hopefully she will be seen more on Sky Sports.

I love her especially with her flirty style

The choice of Ed Chamberlain - and his seeming ever increasing profile - though as Clares replacement on Football First is a poor one. Why not use Ian Payne or even Mark Boulton?

Ian Payne has replaced Rob McCaffrey on Soccer Special on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, not to mention still doing his Sky Sports News slots.



If he was to do Football First too it would be an Ian Payne overload!!
