As for Lee, they want him back, so he's obviously done something right there.

Nope, and they're also in with a shout of promotion to the Championship this season while we're bottom of the Scottish Premiership. Unfortunately they're a much better proposition than us in every way at the moment. Doesn't look like he'll be coming here. A sad state of affairs when that Sunderland team looks like the stable, sensible option. Warnock

The Gillingham guy's comments were very odd. It was as if he was trying to play down Lee's value so they can get him on the cheap. Their fans seem very keen on keeping him.

Steve Evans is an odd man on the whole.

Couple of mates of mine are Gills fans and go to games/watch through iFollow. General consensus, they say, is the fans are quite happy with him.

The focus is on shipping players out and we’ve managed to get one out who was never interested in being here.

Shame that Levein and MacPhee’s snake oil isn’t as readily bought from anyone other than Dr Budge Monty Oh Well

That transfer show thing on sky sports is actually painful, they're really scraping the bottom of the barrel these days. Will not watch again.

Watched 5 minutes of it yesterday. Their banter is chronic. They have to do a daily show, while the only deal of any relevance in 8 days is Drinkwater being loaned to Villa Laugh

The two reporter boys who seem to now play a key part in the studio are made to behave like clowns and it's so unnatural to them, then you have an aging Jim white in the middle makings this even more awkward, it is brutal.

Sky have fallen miles behind in their quality of programme, BT have re-set the bar and it's miles ahead of sky.

Sky Sports has become a virtue signalling, political correctness show more concerned about the balance of their pundits and spending 40 mins investigating what a fan might have shouted at a League Two game than just being a good football  channel. Losing to BT on content and quality and punditry. 

And Jim White is now a parody of himself. He says things and folk laugh cos they think he's trying to be funny. Like an actor overacting but u don't know if they mean it. Like watching the last years of Bruce Forsyth where he wasn't funny, just awkward.

Binning Natalie Sawyer was the beginning of the end.

Yeah, the company who felt the need to order a host to say they didn't share the view that racism is bad is all about virtue signalling.

You that stupid?

Dave Jones was ordered to say Sky didn't necessarily agree with Gary Neville's views as he was on a tirade about the country's two major political parties touching on both racism and anti semitism. 

Or, you're right. And a pundit was purely saying racism is bad and Dave Jones jumped in and said he's no too sure.

Half wit.

Gutted they don't do premier League tonight on BT anymore, that was fucking sensational when they had good guests in the studio, think it's because sky hoovered that 17:30pm Saturday night slot. Cunts.

Talking of Sawyer, there’s been a noticeable change in the female presenters over the last year or so all coinciding with the removal of the dolly birds from the darts and F1.

Out with the delectable Sawyer, Abdo, Gallagher and in with some utter dugs like Kate Mason who’s smug teethy dish has me reaching for the remote.

No being shitty. But I'm reasonably sure it's partly Budge saying no money. And Stendel saying squad is too big anyway.

Have sky actually punted all their tidy female presenters? Laugh

I've noticed that Alex Scott has a slot next to kammy on goals on Sunday Mccringe not watched it but seen enough to turn me off, find her very tedious, zero banter.

It might be the case that it's one in, one out. I just don't buy the theory that Levein/Budge want him to fail.

They don't agree two parties that are riddled with racists are riddled with racists. Not sure your point is as watertight as you think it is.

Halfwit is one word.

95% of Sky's male heterosexual viewers: we quite like professional but still visually appealing female presenters with a flirty sense of humour. 

Sky Sports: you disgusting, sexist fucking pigs. Here's Kate Mason with no makeup on smiling from ear to ear with grey teeth and limp hair like she's just been shopping. And you'll fucking like it.
