Elsehwere, news emerging that Sheff Utd borrowed 3m from a member of the Bin Laden family. A small amount of money, and no reports of how closely related to Bin Landen, but raising a few eyebrows!

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/05/16/sheffield-united-funded-3m-loan-osama-bin-ladens-family-court/

From recollection, isn't the Bin Laden family bloody enormous and includes very close links with the Saudi Royal Family and ironically the Bush's!

Quite possibly.. hence the comment about not knowing how closely related. Quite fun to watch Leeds fans calling for SUFC to be demoted so they can take their spot in the PL though.

The Bin Laden family is huge and the vast majority of them are normal law-aniding citizens of Saudi Arabia....my brother acted for some of them as a solicitor based in Jedda.....so not really anything to get worked up about....unless....

Interested to see just how big the bin laden family is, i cam across this. I think we can say, its going to be fucking huge.

Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden (born 1908 in Hadhramaut) Married 22 times, with 54 children;........say no more.

Just for good measure...Abdallah bin Laden, brother of Mohammed, uncle of Osama; also had over 60 children and was married 6 times.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan to miss Europa League final due to safety concerns, having also avoided travel for the gam against Qarabag earlier in the tournament. Another indictment on the decision to hold the final in Baku.

Not remotely making excuses for FIFA but if the warning they suggest popped up did pop up why did someone not mention it at the time?

As an aside, god that journalist has a bloody irritating way of writing!

I'm sure the other 10 attendees won't mind having a shuffle round.  Sofa

The mind boggles. It's got so much in common with the catholic church - don't upset the gravy train and brush it under the carpet. I find it maddening that people in power can hear allegations time and again and continue to allow such evil depravity to continue almost unabated.

The Catholic Church, Church of England, the BBC, the FA, various private schools, social services in various counties, care homes charged with looking after the most vulnerable etc etc. Institutional corruption in essence and a culture of stamping on dissent and whistleblowers allows these and many other abuses to flourish

Where else did they have a go recently, Sixfields was it? A school team I was with played at the Ricoh, pretty vacuous and identikit as far as grounds go but obviously always a shame to see someone booted out of their home.
