The short-list for this year's Sports Personality of the Year will be announced at the start of the programme rather than a few weeks in advance. It will soon be time to start guessing who will be on the list.

Interesting change in the voting system! Wonder whether this would change the potential winner on the night.

It could change things in a number of ways - some good, some not so good.

It could help to prevent a mass campaign aimed at spoiling the vote by encouraging people to vote for an outsider "for a laugh". OTOH, publishing the list in advance can be helpful for a lesser-known person whose achievements might otherwise go almost unnoticed. My guess is that the change will favour the bigger names on the list.

Yes they have done this to avoid mass campaigns of organised voting I guess.

So they've announced the final three for the Young Sports Personality of the Year award.

Kare Adenegan
Freya Anderson
James Bowen

But instead of announcing the winner in December at SPOTY they are going to announce it this Sunday at the Radio 1 Teen Awards.

Surely presenting it at the Teen Awards takes away a bit of the experience? It's as if the YSP is completely different from the main thing.

Well I suspect that Lewis Hamilton will be on the shortlist after winning his fifth title.

He'll probably be favourite too!

Although if Fury beats Wilder I suspect he might have an outside shot despite all the controversy it would inevitably bring.

Who else? No one from Tennis, Football (it didn't come home) deserves to be there. Probably a few from Sports I don't watch...

With his form over the year as a whole Harry Kane could well make the list.

They should limit the list to UK taxpayers which would rule Lewis Hamilton out.

He probably will do, but could be Thomas, Kane, Cook or Asher-Smith.

I guess Thomas is so high because he won the Tour - the fact three different British cyclists won all three Grand Tours made me think there might not be that much cycling potential this year but I was wrong - although Froome and Yates don't even really seem like they have an outside chance.

Ah of course there's always a cyclist in with a shout - we've had a fair few win this century (ironically Chris Froome who is arguably the best of them all bar Chris Hoy hasn't won it).

I suspect that Ronnie would be a candidate for this year's SPOTY according to Steve Davis.

This is happening tomorrow! I expect this year's show to be dominated by England getting to the semi final of the World Cup and I expect Harry Kane to win the main award. I still have the opinion that England's stage of elimination sounds more impressive than it actually was. Gareth Southgate basically admitted in a SPOTY preview show that he chickened out of trying to win the group so that England would be on the easier knockout route instead of the route that Belgium took.

It was still an achievement all the same. Southgate may get manager award 'for bringing the nation together'
