EPL Review: Fergie Says Sorry, Sort Of...England Are Sorry, and Rafa is Blamed...

Just because there were no Premiership matches doesn't mean the league just stops.

So much for the Respect campaign, as Fergie waited a full week before issuing a strange apology to referee Alan Wiley, while England put in the type of performance that only apologies can cover and Rafa got blamed by George Gillett, who reckons Liverpool's finances are rosy...

Arsenal's Fans Found Guilty As Adebayor Walks Free, Will They Get Suspended?

Last night the FA handed Emmanuel Adebayor a fine and a suspended two game ban, but they also decided that Arsenal's fans had provoked him in the first place.

This was the second part of the FA's investigation into Adebayor's behaviour during Manchester City's 4-1 win over Arsenal at Eastlands in September.

Having being found guilty of stamping on Robin van Persie's face, and receiving a three game ban for that indiscretion, the FA met to discuss his provocative celebration. The resulting fine of £25,000 works out at one days pay for the striker, with the suspended sentence hanging over him until December 2010.

The real news from this hearing however, is that the FA found the celebration of the ex-Arsenal player was somewhat justified, stating that he was severely provoked by his former fans.
