Rob Stone, Julie Foudy, and Alexi Lalas are the hosts for the MLS All Star Game. That's an assault on my ears.

John Harkes: "Indecisive decisions"

EDIT: "[Sir Alex said] I want to walk away with as many minimum injuries as possible"

He gets paid to do this?

Dan O'Hagan doing Spurs v Villarreal, currently on Al-Jazeera Sport 5. I'm not sure if he's commentating specifically for them for just for an international feed.

OK, not sure how things are going to work on the site but I envisage various "issues" being started as new threads (whereas on the old site they would just be a post in the thread).

So here's one to kick-off!

With the return of Monday Night Football, there is the possibility of Mr Keys needing to work at least 4 days in a row.

On the first 2 weekends of the season Sky has PL games on Sat, Sun and Mon and then CL qualifiers on Tue and Wed.

Last season Keys missed most CL nights where no English team was playing. But even if he does this Spurs will be playing live on Sky on one of the Tuesdays meaning that if Keys continues to do all PL games he will be working 4 days in a row.

So what will happen?

Will Keys do MNF and what role will Gray play in it?

And will Keys continue to do all Sat PL games?

I really think we'll see one of the 'second tier' live presenters step up. David Jones looks most likely. He's now very familiar with viewers from SSN and Football League games and I expect him to do Monday nights, perhaps they'll use Keys for the first few weeks though?

I think Stelling will get the gig for MNF.

Jones will have enough to do with FL and CL games. Stelling currently only appears on screen once a week!

I think David Jones will step up and present some Premier League games, most likely MNF because that's probably not going to feature many big games (i.e. big 4 head-to-heads, derbies etc.)

Won't his Countdown commitments determine what he can and can't present?

That was my thinking, Jones has total freedom where Stelling may not be able to get from Manchester to wherever by the Monday night.

Also, by giving Jones some PL games they can bring George Gavin back from the cold to do the FL games that Jones will miss.

I think Stelling's priority is still Sky Sports, we shall see!

I've folded the discussion about Richard Keys into this thread for now. Obviously if it becomes a big issue we can move it into its own thread but probably best to keep everything together to make it clear where different topics go.

Possibly, but I seem to remember when he took over Countodwn it was revealed that they film a week's worth of shows in one day. If they really wanted to I think they could work arounf it.

From a commentary perspective I am very interested to see what they do with Ian Darke, Daniel Mann, Martin Tyler, and Bill Leslie.

Surely the Sky bosses have seen how Darke has become a cult figure in the US in just a month and that he can shoulder more games than he normally gets at Sky. Tyler's commentaries, albeit improved, sound tired and not fresh.

Leslie could probably get more Premier League matches with the new package. Daniel Mann is my favorite young commentator at the moment and I hope to see him on more Football League matches than getting stuck on 3D. I think he can be something very special and in my opinion he's surpassed Bill Leslie in terms of quality.
