How very dare him for knowingly turning up to a surprise party :) and not screaming "RULE OF 6 NOOOOOOOO!"

The world has gone mad

"Barnsley defender Bambo Diaby has been banned from all forms of football activity for two years after he was found guilty of breaching the Football Association's anti-doping regulations.

Diaby, 22, showed traces of Higenamine in an 'in-competition' urine sample when tested in January 2020.
However, he could not establish how the substance entered his system.

This triggered the two-year penalty, while the Tykes have now terminated his contract following the suspension."

Did he play against us?
Can we be promoted now?
They all looked like they were on something to me.

Bit of a dilemma for Wales but expect he will be kept on for now as he enjoys Saint like status there.

Higenamine eh? That's probably inexcusable. 😟

Jack Greakish pleads guilty to 2 counts of careless driving at Birmingham Mags.

Always used to enjoy my days out at VLC. Some cracking stuff used to go through the crim and immigration courts there.

Cavani could be banned for using the term "‘Gracias negrito’, which translates as, ‘Thanks, little black’. But actually where e comes from isnt a "racial" thing so do

A) the FA warn him but not decide that they understand Uruguayan culture better than him
b) Throw the book at him and say it is not tolerated

It does seem it wasn't a "racist" comment as such

Suarez was banned for 8 games using same term.

As Suarez was banned for several games, his case was a precedence and so the FA will have to act on a similar level. (Although Suarez may have used the term in a different context).

"Suarez of course used the term while in a heated on-pitch row with Evra and was handed an eight-game ban, whereas Cavani’s use of the term was not meant to insult and could save him from a suspension."

It IS a 'racial' thing. If it's not considered as such in Uruguay that just means that they have a racist culture there.

According to someone on Sky Sports News (i.e. must be true!), in S.American Spanish it can have two meanings, affectionate or abusive, according to context.
There is no doubt which one it was with Suarez for instance, but I didn't see the Suarez tweet (and don't speak Spanish), so assuming SSN have it right, maybe we should withhold judgement on Cavani until more is known?

I'm not necessarily condemning Cavani if he is just a product of his culture - which appears to be racist if referring to others by their colour, affectionately or not, is considered acceptable. But - like Suarez - he has lived in Europe long enough to adapt if he wants to.

That's a rediculous assumption to make how can we possibly know what words mean when said in another culture...things we say over here when translated could be deemed racist in others countries

Why can't he piss off in January? Bet he wont walk away from the wonga eh?
Nobody has any money right now, at least not outside the PL.

I mean, Juve are punting Dybala all over the place and Ronaldo is available too.

Real Madrid are skint, with the Barca far more interested in Neymar if they did have the money. Which they don't (certainly not if Messi stays).

He's not a Bayern signing and PSG probably aren't interested while they've Mbappe.

Your not right to take advantage of an unproven domestic, to disrespect a great player; cheap.
I'm a Welsh supporter and wasn't happy when he was appointed based on the lack of respect he showed to the side during his playing career. Couldn't care less about his domestic activities.

England and Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier has been given a 10-week worldwide football ban and fined £70,000 after a Football Association panel found he broke betting rules.

The 30-year-old denied seven alleged breaches, but four were found proven during a personal hearing.

The offences occurred in July 2019, which is when Trippier joined Atletico from Tottenham Hotspur.
