I wonder who will be presenting the Football League

I think the only Sky graphics that need changing are the ones that are on Sky Sports News/Soccer Saturday. They need bringing into line with the new generic Sky Sports look.

Does anybody know who will be presenting the Football League.

I REALLY hate HTV West posted:
I'll be more interested to see if they use the Sky graphics for the Cahmpions' League coverage, or they are forced to use the UEFA ones ...


They'll have to use the Champions League ones, every other broadcaster uses Champions League Graphics.


... but you also know what Sky are like for wriggling out of these things. Lord knows what clauses they got put in the CL contracts!

Remember, these were a new round of contracts too, which are bound to differ from previous years on matters of presentation

Did you see the piece on East Midlands Today about Forest's ONE signing!? I was laughing my ass off when I thought of my beloved Leicester's many new players! Very Happy

Yes, I saw it on channel 950 (instead of 101 Evil or Very Mad ). Don't forget - Leicester are sponsered by a massive Worldwide Crisps company, and have the likes of Gary Linekar behind them. You are also in the Premiership which means you've got cash. Forest, on the other hand, are sponsered by a Nottingham-based Credit Card company, and are in Division 1, still suffering from the ITV Digital fiasco. We've done well to secure a Man Utd. player!

Leicester haven't got any cash! All their signings have been free transfers! It makes no difference who your sponsors are. On another note it's disappointing to see there are no Palace games on the Sky fixture list yet again.

Pfft. Walkers don't sponsor us anymore, they only sponsored the stadium. Leicester are now sponsored by another local company, albeit a pretty successful one, Alliance and Leicester. Most of the signings have been for undisclosed amounts, meaning freebies or very cheap. My BBC1 East Midlands is also way up in the 900s. Rolling Eyes

Sky Sports have updated their website so it looks similar to the On-Screen Graphics, so it looks like we'll only be getting a few tweaks here and there, if any.
