it was relaxing filler on a Saturday afternoon, lots of people like the banter and updates on a variety of matches but it went massively downhill when they got rid of all bar Merson and Stelling and this is the end, for me anyway. I was already wavering, as I often work weekends, so not even able to watch as often as I used to.

Viewing figs will fall even more once JS leaves. Some customers will cancel contracts. Less viewers equals less advertising equals less readies for Sky.

It's essentially a radio show on tv, televised for the sole purpose of Sky showing ads. You don't need anything visual at all from the format.

20 years ago it was fine but the model is outdated and looks very cornball when compared to something like NFL Redzone.

The beauty of Stelling was that he was a proper fan, he knew the lower leagues really well. They don't need to appoint a name, they need someone who knows footy, and has a bit of personality. Little or no chance of this happening obviously

I wouldn`t think his mates sacking has anything to do with him leaving. If it had, he would have resigned immediately when they lost their jobs. He`s a survivalist. Maybe been offered a better paid job somewhere. Maybe with Skybet as their main propagandist.
