Presenter Jeff Stelling and & # 39; the boys & # 39; including regulars Paul Merson, Matt Le Tissier, Phil Thompson and Charlie Nicholas have changed the way fans don't participate in games following football on a Saturday afternoon and the obvious camaraderie between pundits is part of & # 39; s charm of show.

But Sky insiders have told Sports Agenda that they are aware that the program needs to evolve to ensure that the talent better reflects its audience.

Female reporters like Bianca Westwood and Faye Carruthers provide match updates – and women are used more often in & # 39; studio in & # 39; e midweek editions of the program – but there is an urge to get more female pundits on next season's flagship show. Sky Sports say no decisions have been reached yet.

The co-founder of Show Racism The Red Card has claimed that the organization was forced to cut five staff members because of a lack of government.

Ged Grebby said: 'Show Racism The Red Card has been in business for just 10 months without government funding. It was because of Brexit, I think, the shame of them who did not know what to do. & # 39;

Grebby says the charity has had an apology and new funding deals have been agreed with the Home Office and the Communities Department.

A government spokesman said: & # 39; We fully support Show Racism the Red Card and its efforts to tackle prejudice and extremism, which is why we have supported the charity with nearly £ 175,000 since 2016. & # 39;

Shame comforting, but Liverpool not missing their first title since 1990, loses one headache on Merseyside.

The local police force cared for more than a million people to fall into the city for a victory parade, when the men of Jurgen Klopp lifted the Premier League trophy, an event that provided a very expensive security and would require logistical operation.

The congratulatory Twitter post from neighbors Everton to Manchester City, meanwhile, was comfortably the & # 39; s most popular social media post of the season. Nothing like throwing it in.

Formula One's commercial director, Sean Bratches, once again has a little understanding of the sport by noting that there has been no South African Grand Prix since the 1980s.

That came as a surprise to the & # 39; audience of & # 39; Americans to & # 39; e Sports Industry Breakfast Club, given that many of them remembered our own Nigel Mansell who dominated the 1992 edition at Kyalami.

The following year also became a South African race, won by Alain Prost. A former ESPN marketing executive with an extensive wardrobe of blowers, Bratches became a parachute after Bernie Ecclestone stepped out.

The long-running uncertainty over Olympic boxing will end on Wednesday as the IOC will decide what to do with the AIBA – the world body of amateur boxing.

A meeting of & # 39; the last ditch will be held on Sunday between an AIBA delegation and the IOC.

It has amused some that the AIBA group is understood to include its head of compliance, Terry Smith, who was chairman of the Welsh Amateur Boxing Association in 2013, when it became found by an independent audit & # 39; not fit for purpose & # 39 ;.

The promotion of Norwich is good news for two clubs that did nothing.

Everton and Wigan will each receive £ 1million following the filing of transfer clauses that will not enter when Norwich returns to the Premier League.

Everton will earn the reimbursement of seven figures as part of the Steven Naismith deal that was concluded in January 2016, while Wigan will receive almost the same for signing Yanic Wildschut a year later.

Both apply, even though Naismith and Wildschut are out of contract this summer.
