Sky Sports provide salvation for despairing football fans during the lull between World Cup and the new season.

As football fans across the UK go stir crazy trying to fill the football void between the World Cup and the start of the new season, Sky Sports, with the help of their legendary broadcaster Jim white, have launched Goalline, to help them see through this difficult time.

Those in need of a football fix should simply dial 0333 202 2177, to hear the concerned voice of Jim White, best known for his round-the-clock presenting marathons on transfer deadline day. With tongue firmly in cheek, Jim will rescue them from their despair. Once the caller has selected their Premier League team, they will be able to hear their side’s glorious goals, brought to life by Martin Tyler and fellow Sky Sports commentators.

Jim White said: “I can sympathise with all of those fans out there – until Sky Sports asked me to help out on the GoalLine I was on the brink - I simply had no idea how I was going to cope over these next few weeks! I couldn’t be happier knowing that we’ll be doing our bit to help fans relive their team’s greatest moments of last season.”
