I've always favoured the sky sports skins of the past so I've attempted a more modern, current twist. Using the colours/style of sky sports news in particular as my main inspiration.
I will try and keep the skin updated.

I PLAY ON SMALL RESOLUTION. I WILL ENDEAVOUR TO PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR EVERYONE BUT QUERIES FOR THOSE OF YOU ON LARGER RESOLUTIONS WILL BE DEALT WITH IN GENERAL TERMS IN WHICH I WILL TRY AND PROVIDE PRINCIPLES WHICH WILL HOPEFULLY RESOLVE THINGS FOR YOU. NO PROMISES BUT I'LL TRY AND ASSIST IF I CAN. UNFORTUNATELY I WON'T BE ABLE TO TEST FOR SUCH THINGS DUE TO MY OWN SYSTEM LIMITATIONS THOUGH.
I envisage issues with the action bar colouring, human profile lay-out, news section and match in between panels and possibly other areas for high res users.
