VIDEO: Sacked Soccer Saturday pundits appear in Paddy Power ‘sitcom’

The episodes will be released every Saturday.

The axed pundits from Sky Sports’ popular Soccer Saturday coverage of the three o’clock kick-offs star in a skit for bookmaker Paddy Power which seeks to chronicle their lives after the show.

Phil Thompson, Charlie Nicholas and Matt Le Tissier were unceremoniously sacked by the broadcaster causing mass outcry among fans of the programme.

In what is just the first of three instalments of the mini ‘sitcom’, the recently-dismissed trio appear alongside former player and manager Alan Curbishley as they consider their future job prospects and attempt to film a pilot episode to rival their former employer.

Working from home on a shoestring budget, the ‘Score Saturday’ team are seen struggling with illegal streams as Thompson, Nicholas and Le Tissier try to watch the games live.

Paddy Power say:

The Premier League is back in our lives once again, but there are some familiar faces that won’t be on our screens for the first time in years.

Or so you thought.

We’ve managed to get the gang back together, and we see what their lives are like now as they live together and try to navigate the new world of football.

We cannot confirm or deny how accurate it is to the truth.
