    Leg it like Beckham: Proud dad David has to make a swift exit over a fence after being mobbed by football fans while watching son Romeo make his Brentford B debut at non-league ground




    DANIEL MATTHEWS AT PARK VIEW ROAD IN WELLING: In the far corner of Park View Road, as the rain swirled and the mud squelched, as Erith and Belvedere - a semi-pro side from England's ninth tier - were on course for the London Senior Cup third round, a father snuck in to catch a glimpse of his son. The face of David Beckham was hidden under a hood and a hat. The slight frame of Romeo, 20, was exposed to the elements and all the attention as he stepped out for his debut with Brentford B to begin the next chapter in the tale one of English football's most famous families. They usually attract 160-odd fans in this corner of south east London. For this tie, a record-breaking 553 paid £5 for their slice of history. Well, 554 with the late arrival.

    EXCLUSIVE: FA open spot-fixing probe into suspicious betting patterns surrounding the booking of Oxford defender Ciaron Brown in Monday's FA Cup defeat by Arsenal.

    An investigation into alleged spot-fixing has now been opened by the FA.

    They are looking into bets placed on the booking of Oxford's Ciaron Brown.

    Sportsmail has learned the FA received a dossier of evidence around bets made.

    The FA have opened a spot-fixing investigation into suspicious betting patterns surrounding the booking of Oxford defender Ciaron Brown in Monday’s FA Cup defeat by Arsenal.

    Sportsmail has learned that the FA have a dossier of evidence regarding supposed corruption, including alleged phone messages before kick-off at the Kassam Stadium which claim that Brown would be booked in a betting scam that allegedly cost one bookmaker more than £1,600.

    One message is understood to show a betting slip with around £200 staked on Brown being yellow-carded at odds of 8-1.

    The 24-year-old Northern Ireland defender was booked in the 59th minute for fouling Bukayo Saka with the score at 0-0, four minutes before Mohamed Elneny gave Arsenal the lead.

    It is unclear how many bets were placed on Brown being booked and the extent of other bookmakers’ liabilities, but the FA are taking the matter seriously.

    Eyewitnesses at the game told Sportsmail they saw several Arsenal fans celebrating after Brown was booked, with several of them bragging about winning hundreds of pounds.

    What is the net spend for Premier League clubs this season?

    Chelsea lead the way – by some distance – with a net spend of more than £300 million. With the Champions League remaining as their only hope of silverware this campaign, it’s been a bit of a disaster.

    Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Marc Cucurella, Wesley Fofana and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang haven’t come close to justifying their hefty transfer fees so far.

    Some way below Chelsea is Manchester United, who are in second with a net spend of almost £200 million. With Erik ten Hag really starting to make his mark, along with the signings of Antony, Casemiro and Lisandro Martinez, it’s been money well spent.

    Nottingham Forest are third having made 22 signings in the summer. Their aim was to survive relegation and they currently sit 15th so their spending can be justified right now.

    Forest are above the club that sit fourth in the net spend table – West Ham. David Moyes is under enormous pressure as they’re 17th in the Premier League despite a net of £165 million.

    Tottenham and Newcastle complete the top six with both clubs looking to qualify for next season’s Champions League with a top-four finish.

    League leaders, Arsenal, are eighth in the table with a £90 million net spend, while Liverpool are tenth with £66 million outlay following their purchase of Cody Gakpo.

    At the other end of the spectrum, three Premier League clubs are still in the green this season in terms of net spend.

    Brighton are eighth this season having lost Graham Potter to Chelsea. It’s even more impressive when you consider they’ve made a profit of £82 million this season.

    Manchester City (£70m) and Leicester (£61m) are the other two clubs to have made a profit in the transfer window so far in 2022/23.

    The net spend of Premier League clubs so far in 2022/23.

    PSG lost £324 million last year, the wage bill was £643 million, it's mentalness.

    I honestly don't know where to begin with this story or where it's going. Are the F.A. gonna produce a list of 'Chants,Songs,Banter etc'

    FA vows to take action against clubs if their fans chant 'rent boy'

    The chant ‘Chelsea rent boy’ was heard during Chelsea’s recent matches against Nottingham Forest and Manchester City, while it was also directed at Frank Lampard, a former Chelsea player and manager, during Everton’s FA Cup tie against Manchester United last Friday.

    Last week, the Crown Prosecution Service, which considers the term ‘rent boy’ as a homophobic slur, confirmed it is looking into chants from some Nottingham Forest supporters during their Premier League game against Chelsea on New Year’s Day.

    A statement from the FA on Wednesday read: ‘The Football Association [The FA] strongly condemns all offensive, abusive and discriminatory chanting in football stadiums, and is determined to stamp this behaviour out. These chants can have a lasting and damaging impact on people and communities within our game, and it must stop.

    ‘Today, The FA has formally written to all clubs across the Premier League, EFL, National League, Women’s Super League, Women’s Championship and Steps 2-4, to remind them that it can pursue formal disciplinary action against any club whose supporters engage in discriminatory behaviour, now including the use of the term ‘Rent Boy’.

    Shocking moment Manchester police officer appears to knock out Charlton fan before walking away leaving him lying motionless in the rain outside Old Trafford


    https://video.dailymail.co.uk/preview/mol/2023/01/11/3295942044879534494/636x382_MP4_3295942044879534494.mp4


    A shocking video seems to shows the moment a Charlton fan is knocked out cold by a police officer outside Old Trafford. The man approaches three police officers in the car park just moments after Manchester United's win in a dominating 3-0 performance over Charlton on Tuesday evening. A small group of fans appear to be interacting with the officers in the car park, which is relatively quiet. After one police officer gives the fan a shove, another pushes him to the ground, at which point the police officers walk away.

    Surely it's only a matter of time before it all implodes upon itself and where is FFP while all this is happening ? It's not just PSG but all the 'Top' teams are guilty of the same thing.

    PSG smash record for largest wage bill in football history - their player wages are ludicrous.

    According to Football Benchmark’s European Champions Report 2023, PSG’s wage bill for the 2021/22 season was €728m-per-year and is the largest in football history.

    It’s not even close, either.

    PSG’s wage bill smashes the record by nearly €200m. The previous record was held by Barcelona, who had a wage bill of €542m-per-year for the 2018/19 season.

    But how much did PSG’s players earn in the 2021/22 season? Capology have listed the wages of every PSG player in that campaign.

    PSG’S PLAYER WAGES FOR 2021/22 SEASON.

    Nuno Mendes – £6.838-per-week

    Xavi Simons – £10,357-per-week

    Colin Dagba – £17,095-per-week

    Danilo Pereira – £26,839-per-week

    Sergio Rico – £35,044-per-week

    Rafinha – £55,558-per-week

    Thilo Kehrer – £84,106-per-week

    Abdou Diallo – £92,312-per-week

    Idrissa Gueye – £102,569-per-week

    Layvin Kurzawa – £102,569-per-week

    Julian Draxler – £123,083-per-week

    Ander Herrera – £133,340-per-week

    Juan Bernat – £143,596-per-week

    Leandro Paredes – £153,853-per-week

    Georginio Wijnaldum – £217,617-per-week

    Angel Di Maria – £225,652-per-week

    Marquinhos – £246,165-per-week

    Marco Verratti – £246,165-per-week

    Achraf Hakimi – £248,730-per-week

    Mauro Icardi – £248,730-per-week

    Keylor Navas – £279,671-per-week

    Presnel Kimpembe – £310,784-per-week

    Gianluigi Donnarumma – £310,784-per-week

    Sergio Ramos – £466,176-per-week

    Neymar – £963,464-per-week

    Lionel Messi – £1,087,914-per-week

    Kylian Mbappe – £1,230,827-per-week

    PSG’s player wages really are quite something.

    Mbappe, Messi and Neymar combined earn over £170m-per-year.

    While 19 of PSG’s players for the 2021/22 season earned £100,000-per-week or more.

    PSG’s spending power helped them win the Ligue 1 title with ease.

    That was the only title they won in the 2021/22 season, though, as they came up short in the Coupe de France (last 16), Trophée des Champions (runners-up) and Champions League (last 16).
