Review of the Day



Slovakian midfielder Nikolas Spalek has signed a 3 year deal with Brescia.



Major League Soccer side Sporting Kansas City have released Yohan Croizet.


Injury Round-Up

Cardiff City striker Isaac Vassell has picked up a thigh injury which will rule him out for the next six to eight weeks.

The team building night out which led to Tom Lawrence and Mason Bennett charged with drink driving after the pair crashed their cars has had another casualty. Derby County's club captain Richard Keogh has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury sustained in the crash. A Derby statement read: "A small group, including the team captain Richard Keogh, continued drinking into the night. They should have known when to stop and also ignored the opportunity to be driven home using cars laid on by the club, and chose to stay out."

Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo is set to miss the next few matches, as well as Nigeria's friendly match against Brazil next month, after an injury suffered in a challenge with Livingston player Rickie Lamie. Aribo required 20 stitches in a wound that "cut all the way to the bone".

Bury Readmittance Rejected

The proposal to allow Bury readmittance to the English Football League in League Two has been rejected by the remaining 71 members of the EFL. The meeting, which also ratified the appointment of Rick Parry as chairman of the EFL, decided to relegate one less team out of the league at the end of the season instead. EFL executive chair Debbie Jevans said: "While we are saddened that Bury FC is no longer part of the EFL, the board's difficult decision to withdraw membership was only taken after every opportunity to find a resolution was exhausted. Since then, in recognition of the efforts made on behalf of the club, the EFL has engaged with supporters' groups, shared their submissions with our members and debated at length the issues raised. Following the discussion today, clubs have established that the preferred direction of travel is to reduce relegation from League Two as a means of returning to 72 clubs. The clubs felt that, in a difficult situation, this approach maintains fairness for all members and upholds the principle of the football pyramid."


Woman And Child Injured By Flares

A woman and a 13 year old boy were treated by medics at a Scottish League Cup match between Livingston and Rangers. The boy needed treatment to his eyes, while the woman had a leg injury after smoke bombs, bangers and flares were used in the away section. A police officer was also struck by a coin thrown from the same section. Chief Inspector Neil Mitchell said: "It is only down to luck that their injuries were minor. One of my officers was also struck by a coin thrown from the same group of supporters. This is also unacceptable and will not be tolerated. We have a retrospective investigation ongoing and are working closely with both clubs to identify those responsible. I can confirm that we are following a positive line of inquiry. We will deal with all those responsible in a robust manner including seeking football banning orders through the courts."

Liverpool Have Trademark Bid Rejected

Liverpool's attempt to have the word Liverpool trademarked has been, quite rightly, rejected. The club claimed it would allow them to protect fans from fake goods, similarly to Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, who managed to trademark their own names. LFC Chief Executive Peter Moore said: "It should be stressed that our application was put forward in good faith and with the sole aim of protecting and furthering the best interests of the club and its supporters. Nevertheless, we accept the decision and the spirit in which it has been made. I would also like to take the opportunity to reiterate our thanks to all those who engaged with us throughout this process, most notably independent traders and local football clubs."


Joke Fine For Barca

Despite the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) itself admitting that the fine would do nothing to stop others breaking the rules, it imposed a fine of just 300 euros on Barcelona for an illegal approach to Antoine Griezmann while he was an Atletico Madrid player. The RFEF's statement read: "Taking into account the economic capacity of the club and the amount of the fine, this committee is aware that the payment of 300 euros, beyond its merely symbolic character, will not damage the sanctioned club and, probably, will not persuade other clubs in the same situation in the future to adjust their conduct to the regulations."
