New Soccer Saturday line-up ‘will feature Tony Pulis, Tim Sherwood and Glen Johnson’

TONY PULIS, Glen Johnson and Tim Sherwood are reportedly set to take part in the first Soccer Saturday of the new Premier League season.

The Athletic claims they will join Clinton Morrison on the panel, as well as regulars Jeff Stelling and Paul Merson.

However, it is understood that this is NOT a final line-up.

And Sky are apparently ready to swap pundits around for each set of fixtures, with the likes of Robbie Fowler and Joleon Lescott also set to be involved.

The claims come after Soccer Saturday stalwarts Matt Le Tissier, Phil Thompson and Charlie Nicholas were sacked from the show last month.

The news came as a shock to many who tune in for the popular football programme.

It led to Merson admitting he considered quitting the show after seeing three of his mates forced out.

And host Stelling was equally upset, apparently tempted to call it a day too.

There were plenty of rumours in the wake of the sackings about who would step in.

Alex Scott and Micah Richards were both touted to take part but SunSport understands they will not feature on the panel this season.

Meanwhile, fan favourite Chris Kamara revealed he was “gutted” by the exits of Le Tissier, Thompson and Nicholas.

He told the Mail: “I can honestly say they are the best fellas you could ever wish to meet.

“They are top drawer and it’s bee a great time to have worked with them over the past 15 years or so.”
