Contracts

Carlisle United have given their captain Callum Guy a new 2-year contract.

 


Transfers

Spezia have signed free agent midfielder Aurelian Nguiamba.

Former Stoke City midfielder Steven Nzonzi has moved to Al-Rayyan SC of the Qatar Stars League on a free transfer from AS Roma.

 


Injury Round-Up

Veteran defender Rory McArdle is out for "an extended period of time". The Harrogate Town player was taken off on Saturday with a groin injury which will require surgery to an adductor tendon.

Arsenal's Swiss international midfielder Granit Xhaka is ruled out for three months due to a medial knee ligament injury.

Watford will be without midfielder Peter Etebo for up to 5 months. The 25 year old Nigerian international, on loan from Stoke City, tore a quad muscle against Newcastle United and, as a result, will miss out on the Africa Cup of Nations.

 


Managerial Changes

Hibernian sporting director Graeme Mathie has left the club. Mathie had been promoted to the role in 2019 after initially joining as head of recruitment in 2019.

 


Disciplinary Charges

Doncaster Rovers' manager Richie Wellens has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association. His protests after Plymouth were awarded a second penalty during a 2-1 loss on 25th September saw him sent off.

Cambridge United have condemned their own fans after objects were thrown at Gillingham goalkeeper Jamie Cumming, who is on-loan from Chelsea. Gillingham won 2-0 and coins and bottles were thrown, seemingly at the keeper, as he celebrated the second goal. A Cambridge statement read: "Cambridge United is aware of the incidents during last night's match against Gillingham in which a number of objects were thrown onto the pitch from the Newmarket Road End towards the opposition goalkeeper Jamie Cumming. The club condemns this behaviour in the strongest possible terms and will be reviewing video footage to identify the culprits. The club reminds supporters that throwing anything on the field of play is extremely serious and will be dealt with accordingly. Any supporters who are found guilty of throwing objects will face a stadium ban." Cumming had complained to the referee after a coin narrowly missed hitting him in the face.

The first game that Derby County played after going into administration has seen them fined £5,000 by the FA for failing to control their players. The Rams lost to Sheffield United on Saturday and the players surrounded the referee after their goalkeeper was sent off.

Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been given a two-match ban by UEFA for his sending off against Young Boys.

Young Boys were fined £31,000 due to a fan getting onto the pitch and the blocking of public passageways.

Leicester and Napoli have been fined for the crowd disturbances during their Europa League game. Leicester got a £17,200 fine and Napoli £8,600, after their fans threw objects at each other towards the end of their 2-2 draw. Napoli were given a further £4,300 fine and ordered to pay for repair work after their supporters damaged parts of the King Power Stadium.

The Europa League match between Olympique Marseille and Galatasaray was halted for 8 minutes after violence erupted in the stands. Objects such as flares were thrown between the two sets of fans towards the end of the first half. After play resumed objects were thrown onto the pitch.

There were also problems between fans at the West Ham United against Rapid Vienna game, as Vienna fans jumped over banners to stand in front of Hammers fans and goad them after West Ham opened the scoring. Both sets of supporters threw objects at each other but police initially calmed it down. Later more objects were thrown after Rapid had a penalty appeal rejected.

 


Rams Begin Cost Cuts

Twenty staff at Derby County have lost their jobs as administrators try to cut costs. Instead of just getting rid of one of the overpaid prima donnas that play for the club for an exorbitant wage, twenty people are now looking for a job. This is despite Steve McClaren leaving his post as technical director to try and preserve other jobs at the club.
