    Surely we can't be arguing whether European football is popular enough to drive subs.

    Eleven sports lasted about 3 months. I love La Liga but unfortunately it's not something the majority of football fans will pay to consume.

    The EPL will eventually eat itself through greed - people are waking up and subs are going south big time now and have been long before covid arrived.

    Watch 10 EPL games and you are guaranteed 7-8 stinkers of little interest to people outside the clubs playing.

    Now technology has made the bin lid attached to the side of the house obsolete. The arrival of the firestick with access to every sporting event, Box Office events, movies, porn etc with an annual cost equivalent to 2 Dullian Shyte PPVs - you can see the problem for Sly.

    The other reason people are turning away from Sly Sports is the political agenda.

    Soccer Saturday seen good men Phil Thompson, Matt Le Tissier and Charlie Knickerless sacked and replaced by people such as Clint Morrison because he fits their black agenda.

    We have Black Lives Matter every hour when it should be every life matters. What happened to George Lloyd was disgusting but these scum officers are rightly facing justice.

    Where is the Sky campaign and the recognition in UK football before every match for the recent 2 people disgustingly beheaded in France in two Ali Snackbar attacks?

    That's complete BS. Those good men you talked about done the job for years and had a great run. In the world of TV people get replaced all the time and to think 3 guys who had that job for years have been hard done by to make way for some new blood is absurd.

    Whether the replacement is black is irrelevant.

    Wow this debate has gone in whole other direction!

    The point originally was UK football fans in general don't watch La Liga. Now it's about BLM!

    Could understand talented and/or entertaining new blood - Morrison certainly not that.

    It was about DAZN and now it is just anarchy - when Pudding Chisora headlines a PPV anything goes.

    All this knee bull before matches - thought the only point of this practice was for ladies to blow the black & decker.

    That's an opinion. I would argue Paul Merson is an absolute idiot with 1 functioning braincell yet I won't say his only employed because his white.

    It's TV. TV presenters get replaced let alone those who have been doing it for as long as those guys had. Remember those guys replaced those before them.

    The only reason TV producers need is the show needs new faces.

    Agreed just making the point there was no agenda to try and replace white faces with black. It was just getting a change with more relevant faces.

    Clinton Morrison was already working on the program during midweek shows.

    The new faces were Adebayo Akinfenwa, Tim Sherwood, Robbie Fowler, Joleon Lescott and Tony Pulis which can hardly be described as some mission to make the program more black.

    It is a Black Day when watching any Tony Pullis team and even worse listening to him.

    Hearn says he will likely resign with sky. Matchroom and sky are a proven casual friendly set up. Dazn would be a tiny platform in the UK. A split with us shows on dazn is likely. Football rights tied up for a few years everything else uses the sky platform to get casual sports fans in too.
