    On air until 6.30pm tonight for his final show on Radio Sheffields Praise or Grumble. He's taking over as
    Sports Editor at Radio Humberside and will also present the sports segment on BBC TV's Look
    North. Like Paul Walker before him, his next step will probably commentating on games for Match
    of the Day and Quest. Good luck to the lad.

    Something not right there. Lost two of their sports teams and commentary of their biggest local side, all in the space of a few months. Is Radio Sheffield skint?

    Sheffield Wednesday chose to reject the deal offered and were the only football league club to do so. Personally I think the deal was rejected to promote their ifollow service.

    Just with offering Wednesday less cash for the same service and losing two of their main sports presenters who haven't been replaced, it doesn't look like they have a lot of money and are making cuts.

    Its not radio Sheffield what offer the cash , it is the BBC , the same offer that is made to every other club to which only Wednesday turned down in an attempt to make more out of ifollow , nothing to do with radio Sheffield .

    I remember playing in a 5 a side league in Sheff a couple of years ago and he was playing for a team called ‘owlstalk’. He was a reyt twat too, one time he didn’t get a decision for a foul so he picked the ball up and volleyed it out of the cage like he was 6 years old. Also plays like he isn’t in control of his feet.

    Not bad on the radio though to be fair to him.
