Richard Keys has reportedly followed after a calamitous interview with Talksport today, in which his ineloquence and tendency to bend the truth...

    Richard Keys has to go too

    I think Sky’s decision to fire Andy Gray was brave and correct. There’s simply no way that kind of behaviour in the workplace can be tolerated.

    Did Torres bottle the penalty yesterday?

    Genuine question for Liverpool fans – why didn’t Fernando Torres take the penalty yesterday? The club’s best player, star striker and surely the man who could be relied on stood aside allowing Dirk Kuyt to take the penalty? Was it pressure? Is Kuyt ahead of Torres in the penalty taking pecking order?...
