Disciplinary Charges

Fenerbahce fans are facing a backlash after thousands of them chanted in support of Russian leader Vladimir Putin following Ukrainian team Dynamo Kyiv scoring against them in a Champions League clash played in Poland due to the invasion of Ukraine. UEFA have opened an investigation. Fenerbahce stated that the chants in no way represented the club or its "corporate stance in any way".

The unnamed Premier League player who was arrested on suspicion of three counts of rape is no longer under investigation for one of the allegations. His bail has been extended until October.

The assault charge against Sheffield United striker Rhian Brewster following a pitch invasion in their Championship play-off defeat to Nottingham Forest has been dropped. The former Chelsea and Liverpool youngster was accused of assaulting a Forest fan in the midst of a invasion by Forest fans, which also saw his teammate Billy Sharp headbutted and another teammate, Oli McBurnie, also charged with assault. McBurnie's assault charge is being reviewed as well.

Former Crawley Town manager John Yems has been charged with racial discrimination towards his players by the Football Association. Yems is accused of making 16 comments that had a reference to either ethnic origin, race, nationality, religion, gender or colour between 2019 and 2022. He is also alleged to have discriminated against Crawley players during the same period. Yems was suspended and then sacked by Crawley following the "serious and credible accusations" against him and replaced by former Arsenal youth team coach Kevin Betsy. The Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) is also conducting an inquiry, as well as supporting players who have reported claims of racism to them. A PFA statement read: "In any walk of life it takes courage for an employee to come forward with concerns about discrimination in their workplace. It's a decision that will involve understandable anxieties regarding potential career impacts and longer term employability. That's why it's crucial that the PFA is here to advocate for players and act as an independent source of support and advice on important matters such as this. Our message to any players who may have similar concerns, or who may be experiencing issues with discriminatory behaviour, is to speak to your union, either through your club's PFA delegate or directly with the PFA team." It was claimed Yems split the players along racial lines and that the training ground was segregated along those lines.

Inter Milan and their new shirtsponsors DigitalBits are having issues after DigitalBits have repeatedly missed payments. Inter have removed the Digitalbits branding from their website and electronic advertising hoardings.

Bees Sell Naming Rights

Brentford's new stadium is set to have a new name after they agreed a 10-year stadium naming rights sponsorship agreement with Grey Technology Limited (Gtech). They only moved to what was known as the Brentford Community Stadium in September 2020 after over 100 years at Griffin Park, but it will be known as the Gtech Community Stadium for the next ten years. The club have said that the deal is the largest sponsorship deal in the Bees' history.


Latics In New Hands

Oldham Athletic fans are rejoicing after the controversial and extremely unpopular reign of Abdallah Lemsagam is over. Local businessman Frank Rothwell, who rowed across the Atlantic at the age of 70 as well as around the world, has completed a £12m takeover of the former Premier League club, who recently became the first club to have played in the Premier League to drop out of the English Football League. Under Lemsagem the club was a mess, managers coming and going in quick succession, 12 in 4 years, wages paid late and numerous pitch invasions by unhappy fans. It is believed that the Latics were just days away from entering liquidation before Rothwell stepped in to save the club after the son of Oldham (and Everton) legend Joe Royle, Darren, stepped in to set up the rescue deal. In return Darren Royle is to become the club's chief executive and both he and his dad will have a seat on the board. Rothwell is a colourful character, the holder of two world records and also appeared on a Bear Grylls' reality TV show, and should at least prove more popular than the previous owner.
