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?
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.
The Football First job is not too taxing and in theory anyone of Sky’s football presenters could do the job. It only really involves reading the match choice information a few times between 8.25pm and 11.15pm, and then briefly reviewing the day’s best bits with a guest for around 25 minutes.
Therefore I imagine Mark Bolton would rather stick to Spanish football. Also, there are suggestions on another forum that Ed Chamberlin is only temporarily filling in at the moment and someone else will get the FF job later on. I’m not sure if that is still the intention though?
I am sure Clare could still do Football First aswell as her new job on Goals on Sunday.
If u think about it, all it needs is someone from the Premier League Games to be local to Sky at the time and could be in the studio around 6pm. Maybe use someone from Soccer Saturday as the studio guest. And she could easily finish doing the Football First by 9pm and be in bed early to be up for Goals On Sunday.
Clare is by far a better football presenter than Ed Chamberlain and more sexy. It was very nice to wake upto Clare on Sunday mornings around 8-9am
