It must be said she has added a sexy element to goals on sunday which has definitely made it more watchable. Yesterday was case in point open neck shirt, leather knee high boots and jeans, she had added a sense of fun to the programme as well.
I have seen from todays Daily Mail article as follows
Stress Takes Its Toll On Tomlinson
Clare Tomlinson, one of the most prominent women football broadcasters has become the latest casualty of the Stephen Bywater C-word incident on Sky Sports.
Tomlinson who was scheduled to present last night’s England U21 match against Montenegro at Leicester, has been signed off work on medical grounds for an expected two months due to stress and depression.
Sky Sports have made it clear that Tomlinson had not been sacked or disciplined for her part in the Bywater fiasco, but her illness follows the turmoil surrounding Sky’s major inquest into the Goals On Sunday programme when the Derby goalkeeper’s obscenity occurred.
Tomlinson was hosting the Sunday review of the Premiership action with Chris Kamara when guest Bywater’s C-word was allowed to pass without comment or any apology, one which was finally given to viewers the following week.
The fall-out that ensured saw Tomlinson having to cancel a trip to watch Spurs in Cyprus to attend a meeting with head of sport Vic Wakeling. Afterwards, however, it seemed that the Goals On Sunday producer Nigel Dean, who has been switched to Football First, would be made the scapegoat.
But Tomlinson’s resulting health problems now make it doubtful whether she will return to her high profile football role at Sky. Paul Broadman, son of Stan Broadman, will temporarily be taking over Tomlinson’s Goals On Sunday role.
Lets hope Claire gets better and she does not get the same treatment Rodney Marsh got when he made Toon Ami comment on You’re On Sky Sports.
