Review of the Day


Transfer Round Up

Notts County have added two free agents to their squad under new boss Harry Kewell. Left-back Cedric Evina was on loan with Kewell's Crawley Town from Doncaster Rovers last season before being released. Centre back Jamie Turley was also with Crawley Town last season, who released him in the summer.

Veteran former Republic of Ireland international Wes Hoolahan has signed for West Bromwich Albion on a short term deal until January. The 36 year old left Norwich City in the summer after playing 352 games there in a 10 year spell with the Canaries.

Bulgarian goalkeeper Dimitar Evtimov had been released by Nottingham Forest towards the end of the transfer window last month but has managed to find a new club. The 25 year old has signed a one-month deal with Burton Albion.

Aston Villa have allowed Belgian defender Richie De Laet to move on a season long loan to Melbourne Victory of the Australian A-League. De Laet was coached by Victory head coach Warren Joyce when he was in charge of Manchester United's reserve side.


Alloa Striker Reveals Gordon Covered His Wages While Out Injured

Greg Spence has revealed on social media that Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon felt so bad after his foul on the Alloa Athletic striker in a Scottish League Cup tie in 2016 ruled the forward out for 3 months that he covered the wages lost. Gordon only received a yellow card for the assault, which hit Spence around the stomach area, but admits he forgives the Scotland keeper now.


Charlton And Blackpool Fans Hold EFL Protest

Supporters of both Charlton Athletic and Blackpool have held protests outside offices belonging to the English Football League as the two sets of fans hit out at the EFL's lack of action over the clubs' respective owners, Roland Duchatelet and Owen Oyston. Both clubs are being run into the ground by owners who should long have been forced out of the game by the ruling body, according to the fans (and I agree wholeheartedly) but the EFL has failed to act even when Blackpool's owner suffered High Court rulings against him which demand immediate action.


Howard Buys Into Dagenham

Non-league Dagenham & Redbridge has new owners in the shape of a consortium involving USA international goalkeeper Tim Howard. The former Man Utd and Everton keeper is the face of a group called Victoria Road Football LLC, which includes a pair in Peter Freund and Craig Unger who are involved in ownership roles in US sports franchises, including United Soccer League side Memphis 901, which the pair founded this year.


Premier League Opens Investigation Into Silva Approach

The English Premier League has finally opened an investigation into Watford's claims that Everton made an illegal approach to their then-manager Marco Silva last season. The Hornets reported Everton at the time, but it has taken to now, four months after the Portugese was appointed as Toffees head coach, before the Prem decided to take 'action'.


Sarri Open To Terry Coaching Role

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri has said he would be happy to have Chelsea legend John Terry back at the club as a coach, if the former England defender decides to hang up his boots. Sarri said: "If he wants to help us, I'm very, very happy. The last time I spoke with him he told me that he wants to play for another season. Chelsea is his home, of course. For sure, he will be a point of reference for me, for everybody here [if he returns]. It's up to him. If he wants to play for another season, I think it's right he tries to play."


Real Madrid Coach Joins In Criticism Of USA Game Idea

Real Madrid head coach Julen Lopetegui has rightly criticised plans to hold a La Liga match in the USA, pointing out the key issue most of the others have skirted, that it undermines the integrity of the competition by forcing just one team to give up the advantage of a home game. Lopetegui said: "I am not in favour of it happening. It does not benefit the equality of the competition. All the teams should play in the same stadiums." He joins the president of the Spanish Football Federation, the Spanish Players' Union and many others who have spoken out against the ludicrous moneymaking scheme.
