"Well, Harry Kane's gone off clutching his ankle. Over to Geoff on the touchline for more information"

"It looks like he's injured his ankle".

<10 minutes later>

"Any more news on Kane's injury Geoff"

"The Spurs physio has look at it and it's definitely an ankle injury of some sort"

"Thanks Geoff, the Pulitzer Prize is on the way"


I'm getting a bit pissed off with the comparison to Keys and Gray. Whilst on the face of it, what Carragher did was worse, he has appologized unreservedly, made no excuses and accepted that he fcuked up. I seem to remember Keys and Gray played the victims and persisted with the "Just a bit of banter" defence.

Yeah, I was going to add that the Keys/Gray recording was leaked by a female member of staff fed up with the endemic misogyny so hardly an isolated incident.

Carragher can't complain if he gets the sack but I'm very much in the "2 strikes and you're out" camp because it does seem out of character. However reprehensible his actions, I'm not sure his whole media career should end up being defined by 20 seconds of fcukwittery.

TBM Should be suspended without pay for the rest of the season - then come back beginning of next once people have forgotten what he did and have moved onto a new target.

The Sky Sports football pundit Jamie Carragher has been suspended by the broadcaster until the end of the season after spitting in the direction of a 14-year-old girl following a verbal exchange with the teenager’s father over Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat by Manchester United.

A Sky Sports spokesman said: “Following an internal review, Sky has suspended Jamie Carragher for the remainder of the football season.

“Jamie has taken full responsibility for what has happened and we will ensure he gets the help he needs to guarantee something like this never happens again. Before the start of the next season we will sit down with Jamie to discuss whether he is ready to return to his role.


Ouch. Looks like he has kept his job by the skin of his teeth, and with conditions attached.

Probably the right course of action.

Really interested to know what the police are doing about the dad though. He should at least get a few points on his licence.

Awkward dinner table chat that night.

Mum: Good day, guys?
Daughter: Jamie Carragher spat at me.
Mum: What?! Why?
Daughter: Dad was goading and filming him on the motorway.
Dad: :?

Fixed it for you.

Did you hear how much his co-commentator wanted to punch him? There was genuine dislike there.

The worst parts were Hazard’s “girly flicks” and moaning for 90 minutes about how cold he was and then ridiculing Giroud for wearing thermals.

Had to laugh at Carra and Souness getting completely shown up by Alex Scott yesterday. She was pulling obscure stats out of nowhere - great research and preparation. Really good.

She wasn't "really good" at all she was kinda just there really, like the men are too a lot of the time.

The clamour from men especially to be seen to be heaping praise on her via social media is a little bit sad and very attention seeky.
