Review of the Day

 

Thai Cave Children Guests Of Man Utd

The 12 children who were trapped for over 2 weeks in a cave in Thailand, members of a junior football team, are being forced to undergo further hardship today as they will be at Old Trafford to see Manchester United take on Everton. They will watch the game in the directors' box where Ed Woodward will no doubt set them up with a sponsorship deal with an Uzbekistani tractor company.

 

Philippines Turn To Sven

Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has returned to international management as he takes charge of the Philippines on a 6 month contract, following ex-England international Terry Butcher, who quit in August without taking charge of a single match. He will once again team up with Scott Cooper, who was his assistant at Leicester City and had been in charge of the first team following Butcher's resignation. With Sven being 70 now, at least there is a good chance he will actually focus on the team, rather than sowing his seed as widely as possible like he did with England....

 

Aspas Scores Treble After Night In Hospital

Despite spending the night before in hospital as his wife gave birth to a new baby girl, Celta Vigo's Spanish international striker Iago Aspas notched a hat-trick against Eibar yesterday.

 

Hoddle Rushed To Hospital

Not such good news for another former England manager as Glenn Hoddle was rushed to hospital on his 61st birthday after he was taken ill while working as a pundit for BT Sport. A BT spokesperson said: "Earlier today Glenn collapsed at the BT Sport studios - he received immediate medical attention on set and was transferred by paramedics to a hospital in London. His family are with him and would like to thank everyone for their support. They have also asked to respect their privacy at this time. The condition is serious but Glenn is receiving specialist treatment and responding well."

 

Tragedy Strikes At Leicester

The owner of Leicester City, Thai tycoon Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, is well known for flying in and out of every game at the King Power Stadium in his helicopter, but, following yesterday's draw with West Ham United, tragedy struck as the helicopter crashed while taking off. The helicopter was said to have risen clear of the stadium before the engine cut off and it crashed back down to earth in the car park. It is known yet known who was on board but it is believed that the owner was in the helicopter.

 

Rami Apologises For On Pitch Bust Up With Team-Mate Payet

Marseille team-mates Adil Rami and Dmitri Payet had to be separated on pitch during the Europa League defeat at the hands of Lazio. Rami has accepted the blame for the incident saying: "Nothing happened. It's for the TVs, or for s*** magazines that you read tomorrow. But it's my fault, I should not have gotten upset." Payet also sought to downplay the incident: "It happened, it will happen again. There's nothing alarming. We've said things like we've always done for the year and a half we play together. We talk about it on the field, we talk about it afterward. We are trying to find the best solution so that it does not repeat itself."

 

Marseille Duo Sign New Contracts

Despite that 3-1 defeat to Lazio, Marseille's head coach Rudi Garcia and sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta have signed new contracts which keep them at the club until 2021. Marseille are currently 11 points behind Paris Saint-Germain.
