Wednesday Challenge Trademark

After finding out that Paul Jennings had registered 'WAWAW' as a trademark last year Sheffield Wednesday have appealed to the government's Intellectual Property Office (IPO) in an attempt to overturn the trademark. WAWAW is used by Wednesday fans regularly on social media and stands for 'We're All Wednesday Aren't We' but they could face legal action by Jennings for using it without his permission in a ridiculous misuse of trademarks. A Wendesday statement said: "We can confirm we have challenged Mr Jennings' trademark as 'WAWAW' has, without question, grown organically from within the Sheffield Wednesday family for many years. We are confident the decision of the Intellectual Property Office will take this overwhelming factor into consideration and result in our challenge being successful."

 

Bluebirds Agree Vaulks Fee

Rotherham United's Welsh midfielder Will Waulks is close to a move to Cardiff City after the two clubs agreed a fee for the 25 year old. Previous club Falkirk have a sell-on fee as part of the deal that saw him move back down south from the Scottish club.

 

Forest Get Lease Extension

With plans in the pipeline to expand the City Ground, Nottingham Forest have extended their lease on the ground from Nottingham City Council to 250-years from the previous 50-year lease. The area of ground leased has also been increased in size which will enable the club to put its plans for a 38,000 seat stadium in action.

 

Addicks Extend Bowyer Contract

Just one day after revealing they could not agree a new contract with manager Lee Bowyer, Charlton Athletic have confirmed that a 1-year contract extension has been agreed at the terms they said it would have been crazy to agree to. Bowyer has trebled his salary with the new contract. No wonder they are losing money under the (hated by fans) owner Roland Duchatelet! Bowyer said: "I'd literally spoken to the owner (Roland Duchatelet) just before I'd spoken to my wife and had a normal conversation with him. It was civilised and we were negotiating. It was only when I came off the phone that I'd heard there was a statement that had gone out. Two or three hours after we'd originally spoken, he called me to say he'd like to agree what we'd spoken about earlier and let's move things forward, which was great to hear. All I wanted to do is stay at the club. I love the club."

 

Brum Sack Monk

After a fall out over the sale of Jota to city rivals Aston Villa, Garry Monk has been dismissed by Birmingham City after 15 months in charge. His assistant Pep Clotet has been named caretaker coach. A board statement read: "The board of directors believe this [Monk's sacking] to be in the long-term interests of the club. It is vitally important for everybody at the club to be sharing the same vision and commitment to the plans and processes."

 

Boyd Retires

Kilmarnock's former Rangers, Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest striker Kris Boyd has retired with a record for Scottish Premier League goals of 167 in total. The 35 year old had 3 spells with his first club Killie and helped them qualify for Europe for next season.

 

Motherwell Accept Another Turnbull Bid

Norwich City have also agreed a fee with Motherwell for teenage midfielder David Turnbull, matching the offer Celtic made recently. Celtic had agree a deal believed to be for around £3.25m for Turnbull, who scored 15 goals from midfield last season, but were unable to agree personal terms.

 

Rafa Gets China Offer

With just a couple of weeks left on his contract with Newcastle United, Rafael Benitez has received a mega money offer from Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang to become their manager. Benitez has a new deal on the table from Newcastle but has so far been unable to agree a deal with the Toon.
