    Will that mean they're on Amazon Prime miller or will it be pay-per-view for individual games?

    Appreciate it's probably very new news and you might not know yet so no sweat if the above is all we know for now.

    Not sure as yet, will see if I can find out.
    It’s becoming impossible to pay legitimately to watch all Premier League and Champions league football without risking bankruptcy

    Ffs I do hope this is not true.


    A Premier League and international footballer has been arrested in north London on suspicion of rape.

    The 29-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was taken into custody on Monday morning where he remains, as reported by the Telegraph.

    The Metropolitan Police told BBC Sport: "On 4 July, an allegation of rape of a woman in her 20s was reported to police.

    "It was reported the alleged rape happened in June 2022."

    The statement added: "On 4 July, a 29-year-old man was arrested at an address in Barnet on suspicion of rape and taken into custody where he remains.

    "Enquiries into the circumstances are ongoing."

    “Champions League final inquiry chairman blasts 'bull****' Gerald Darmanin's claim about Liverpool fans”

    The chairman into the inquiry assessing how events were handled at the Stade de France slams Gerald Darmanin's claims
    The chairman into the inquiry assessing how events were handled on the night of Liverpool's Champions League final with Real Madrid has branded Gerald Darmanin's claims as "bull****".

    And French opposition minister Francois-Noel Buffet, who is co-chair of the inquiry that is looking into the chaos outside the Stade de France on May 28, has slammed interior minister Mr Darmanin for effectively falsifying claims over the number of "fake tickets" in circulation on the night.
    Thousands of supporters of both clubs were subjected to horrendous treatment from French police and local gangs as they queued to get inside the ground for the European showpiece last month.
    Hundreds of witness testimonies have since been written about the indiscriminate use of tear gas and riot shields with dozens of videos available on social media sites to back up those reports.
    In the wake of the incidents, Mr Darmanin attempted to pin the blame on '40,000 ticketless fans' in claims that have since been debunked and the French interior minister eventually offered a subdued apology on French television last week.
    The Spirit of Shankly and the Liverpool Disabled Supporters Association last week told the ECHO of the need for a full French parliamentary inquiry and Mr Buffet has now slammed Mr Darmanin in quotes given to Le Progres in France.
    "The major problem comes from the minister of the interior, who lied," Buffet said. "Following the events, he told us bull****. That is what sparked the fire. If he had admitted to mistakes and apologised, there would have been no huge controversy.

    "Initially, [Darmanin] told us there were 30,000 fake tickets. In the end, only 2,800 fake tickets were counted [by UEFA]. He had also said that it was the fault of the English, who had caused all the carnage.

    "This is not true in reality. The English were not responsible. They have nothing to do with it. It was the poor organisation [of the match] that caused all the difficulties that were encountered, in particular the [security] controls at the stadium."
    The findings of the investigation which is being overseen by Buffet and co-chairman, Laurent Lafon, will be published in full in a public report on July 13.

    In the days after the game, Liverpool chairman Tom Werner wrote to the French government, expressing his "utter disbelief" at Darmanin's attempts to pin the blame on supporters and demanded answers, suggesting people at the venue were "treated like cattle" by the authorities on the night.

    Well Deserved!!


    Senegal's Sadio Mane was crowned African Footballer of the Year for the second time running at the Confederation of African Football (Caf) awards ceremony in the Moroccan capital Rabat.

    Mane scored the winning penalty as Senegal beat Egypt in a shootout in this year's Africa Cup of Nations final to lift the trophy for the first time.

    The awards returned for the first time in three years after being suspended by the coronavirus pandemic, with Nigeria's Asisat Oshoala also retaining the title she won in 2019.

    "I am very, very happy to receive the trophy this year," Mane, 30, said as he collected his prize.

    Mane beat compatriot and Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy as well as former Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah, whose Egypt side lost February's final.

    "I thank the Senegalese people, and dedicate this trophy to the youth of my country," added Mane, who also helped Senegal reach the World Cup and won two domestic cups with Liverpool.

    Mane's prize was one of five picked up by Senegal in a total of seven men's categories after a night to remember for the West African nation.

    Long-standing Senegalese boss Aliou Cisse won coach of the year, with his side named men's team of the year, while Pape Sarr was named young player of the year and another Senegalese, Pape Ousmane Sakho, won best goal for his overhead kick for Tanzanian side Simba.

    "We waited a long time for this Nations Cup," said Augustin Senghor, the president of Senegal's football federation. "We are a good example to all those teams who have not yet won (the tournament)."

    Sarr, who appeared just once during Senegal's historic Nations Cup triumph, won an award previously lifted by Salah himself after his season on loan with French side Metz, so edging out Red Bull Salzburg's Ivorian Karim Konate and Manchester United's Tunisian Hannibal Mejbri.

    A host of African football legends such as Daniel Amokachi, Lucas Radebe, Jay-Jay Okocha, Geremi Njitap and Senegalese duo El Hadji Diouf and Khalilou Fadiga - who celebrated on stage with Mane - were in attendance for the awards at the Mohamed VI complex.

    African and Moroccan champions Wydad Casablanca took the club of the year prize for the second time in a row, while Egypt goalkeeper Mohamed El Shenawy, whose Nations Cup ended early because of injury, was named the interclub player of the year.

    David Moores was a genuine fan as well as chairman. I think he oversaw the most difficult period in our modern history, and of course ended up selling to Hicks and Gillette, which he later apologised for, said he deeply regretted it and had been badly advised.
