I heard from an article in the Daily Mail this week, unfortunately throw the paper away now, that someone from behind the scenes on Goals On Sunday has now been moved to Football First

I have seen from todays Daily Mail article as follows



Stress Takes Its Toll On Tomlinson



Clare Tomlinson, one of the most prominent women football broadcasters has become the latest casualty of the Stephen Bywater C-word incident on Sky Sports.



Tomlinson who was scheduled to present last night's England U21 match against Montenegro at Leicester, has been signed off work on medical grounds for an expected two months due to stress and depression.



Sky Sports have made it clear that Tomlinson had not been sacked or disciplined for her part in the Bywater fiasco, but her illness follows the turmoil surrounding Sky's major inquest into the Goals On Sunday programme when the Derby goalkeeper's obscenity occurred.



Tomlinson was hosting the Sunday review of the Premiership action with Chris Kamara when guest Bywater's C-word was allowed to pass without comment or any apology, one which was finally given to viewers the following week.



The fall-out that ensured saw Tomlinson having to cancel a trip to watch Spurs in Cyprus to attend a meeting with head of sport Vic Wakeling. Afterwards, however, it seemed that the Goals On Sunday producer Nigel Dean, who has been switched to Football First, would be made the scapegoat.



But Tomlinson's resulting health problems now make it doubtful whether she will return to her high profile football role at Sky. Paul Broadman, son of Stan Broadman, will temporarily be taking over Tomlinson's Goals On Sunday role.



Lets hope Claire gets better and she does not get the same treatment Rodney Marsh got when he made Toon Ami comment on You're On Sky Sports.



Clare is a breath of fresh air on Sky

Rodney Marsh deserved to be kicked out for what he did, Claire Tomlinson does not. I hope Bywater feels terrible for the trouble he's caused.



Bloody idiot.

Could somebody please tell me in what context the Bywater incident happened, how come he used that word, who/what was it about? I've completely missed this incident, first i've heard about it is here.

The Derby keeper was on the show and talking about how his coach told him to be a decent pro and not be a....... he then spelt out the c word. The presenters are in the sh*t because they didnt apologise afterwards, they just carried on like nothing happened

Thanks Gaz ^



According to the Sky Sports website Jeff Stelling will join Kammy to host the show this Sunday! Should be excellent stuff.

If Clare does not return to Goals On Sunday, I would love Jeff Stelling to be a permanent fixture on the show. I just dont understand why Kammy has not been pushed to one side on the show or does he get preferential treatment
