    TV viewers were left shocked as an advert featuring Shane Warne broadcasted during England's Test against New Zealand.

The Soccer Saturday star revealed in March that "live TV might have to take a back seat" after he opened up on his diagnosis with apraxia of speech. 2Chris Kamara is set to return to TV screens next monthCredit: Rex Concerned Sky Sports viewers reached out to Kamara on social media after noticing the 64-year-old slurring his speech while on TV.

    SKY hope to tie down star pundit Graeme Souness to a new deal  despite losing some of his colleagues. Souey has been a main man even though the station are going for a younger and more diverse panel. 1Sky want to offer pundit and Liverpool legend Greame Souness a new contractCredit: AFP With Jeff Stelling leaving and other older members of staff under review, it would be an own goal to lose the ‘Godfather’. Souness is one of Scottish and English football's most celebrated legends with a career spanning over 20 years. The midfield great started out at Tottenham in 1970 but made a name for himself two years later at Middlesbrough. That led to a major move to Liverpool in 1978 where he established himself as one of the top flight's best with 54 goals and 23 assists in 347 appearances. The 68-year-old left Anfield in 1984 and played for Sampdoria as well as Rangers, where he was appointed as the club's first ever player-manager, before rolling credits on his celebrated career in 1991. Souness won five league titles, three League Cups...
    JAMIE CARRAGHER has roasted fellow Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville following Manchester United's shocking defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were reduced to ten men when leading 1-0 and ended up being beaten after Jesse Lingard's terrible stoppage time backpass was dramatically punished by Jordan Siebatcheu. 3Carragher enjoys ripping into Neville when Man Utd loseCredit: Getty 3Carragher changed his Twitter profile picture to this imageCredit: Twitter / @Carra23 And Carragher was taking no prisoners as he went on social media to mock the former Red Devils full-back. The ex-Liverpool player tweeted a picture of Neville covering his face in anguish and added: "#NewProfilePic." And he stuck to his tweet, promptly changing his display picture to the image of Neville. Carragher's hilarious jibe came just a couple of hours after Neville had posted a video of himself looking smug after Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring for his beloved Man Utd. But he was left with egg on his face as United were turned over in the second half. The loss was Solskjaer's seventh in 11...
    RESEARCH shows the new generation of Premier League fans are NOT as die hard - with 20 per cent not even supporting a team. According to ‘Football Fandom 2021’, a new report commissioned by Sky Sports, a growing number of fans are more dedicated to the game itself than to a team. 1Research show 20 per cent of fans do not even support a teamCredit: Getty Only one in five consider themselves fans but do not follow a team or watch football regularly. Jamie Carragher said: “The relationship between fans and football is evolving and we are seeing far more people interact with football in so many ways. "It’s great to celebrate this diversity and open the door to conversations with people we wouldn’t have before. "Football brings people together and Sky Sports drawing attention to the ever-changing football fan is a great way for the nation to celebrate the start of the season.” Dr Martha Newson, Cognitive Anthropologist at the University of Oxford and the University of Kent, added: “Football is now more representative than ever...

    GARY NEVILLE has formed a 'pundits army' WhatsApp group in the aftermath of the failed European Super League, according to reports. The Manchester United legend played a prominent role in publicly fighting the ESL during its short-lived launch. 5Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher have been passionate voices against the ESL in recent weeksCredit: Sky Sports 5BT Sport regulars are believed to be in the chatCredit: Getty And he is equally passionate about staving off future potential coups from greedy owners.

    SUPER League will have video referees at every match next season after sticking with Sky Sports. A new two-year broadcast deal has been struck, albeit for what is believed to be a vastly reduced fee. 4 Video referees are set to be at every Super League game from next seasonCredit: SWPIX.COM However, SunSport can reveal increased coverage of games means each of the six matches a week will have video referees, rather than just the televised ones. That will eliminate claims live games are played to a different set of rules and some tries that are not given would be if they were not on TV. And fans will be able to see matches on free-to-air channels THIS season, maybe even on YouTube. A new contract for 2022 and 2023 was agreed for the top flight, but at a rate at least 25 per cent down on the current agreement. While the exact figure was not revealed, it is believed £30 million a year, down from the current £40 million, is the best they can hope for. 4 Sky has...
    It is hard to imagine a time when we needed this more, frankly, this flabbergasting, dumbfounding, out-of-the-(orange-and)-blue surprise of a Knicks season. Forget the way our world at-large has been upended the last year. Let’s just keep it to our little sporting corner of that solar system. Let’s remember what these last few years have been like around here, an endless morass of underachievement and underperformance, summer to winter, fall to spring, one sporting calamity after another, an endless loop of failure, of frustration, of futility. The Islanders gave a whiff of oxygen last summer, and maybe that was a harbinger. They share the Knicks’ colors, after all, and when they beat the Panthers, Capitals and Flyers in the NHL’s bubble, playoffs they reminded a faction of New York of the possibilities of hope. But let’s be honest about something: Even that was different. What the Islanders did was salvage a season that, before interruption, was careening out of control, seven straight losses and 11 out of 13 before the virus shut everything down. Theirs was a tale of redemption...

The Tottenham star was left with a gruesome gash on his leg after he was clattered by the Brentford ace during the Carabao Cup semi-final. 3Mike Dean checked the VAR monitor then sent off the Brentford starCredit: Sky Sports Dasilva, 22, lost control of the ball before he lunged into Hojbjerg, 25, with his studs raised. After the incident was checked by VAR, the Bees star was shown a straight red card. Dasilva later took to social media to insist he never meant to hurt the Spurs midfielder.
