10:15 AM ET 10.17 | Manchester United's Patrice Evra was left isolated on Sunday night after accusing Liverpool striker Luis Suarez of racially abusing him. However, after the claims, Suarez denied any abuse and fought to clear his name. Sky Sports found no video footage that supports Evra and it emerged that referee Andre Marriner did not hear any of the alleged 10 racist comments. While supporting their player, United are leaving the matter to the France left back.

There shouldn't be rel/prom. Or maybe it should. One crap team gets relegated and one crap team gets promoted. it all evens out at the end.

Oh by the way, the Podolski domestic form update is now available:

In 8 league matches Poldi has 6 goals (fourth best in the league) and 4 assists (2nd best in the league).

Also, in the only Serie A news that matters, Miroslav Klose scored the winning goal (2-1 final) in the Rome Derby in extra time with only 22 seconds remaining before the final wistle. With his 6th goal in 8 matches for Lazio, he has already cemeted his spot as a club icon.

Looks like my avatar woes will continue as long as FN is also having trouble posting their own pics!

Hear, oh football faithful, the good news. I'm starting my own social movement. It is called 'occupy Kate Upton's bossom', and as the leader of the movement it is my duty to lead from the front.

Also, in news from the other Football: It is now two straight Sundays that the Miami Dolphins have not lost. Awesome!

It's going to be difficult for him to become a "club icon" when the league has him removed from the country for having the nerve to score...

Over/under on next week's matchup between the Dolphins and the Broncos in the quest to get the top pick:

0

Both teams will refuse to run a single offensive play and instead opt to punt the ball back and forth to one another on 1st down.

You jest, but in a couple of games last year, the best player on the field for the Dolphins was punter Brandon Fields. Honest-to-God.

Odds getting longer for DCU....

DCU clinch a place in the MLS Cup Playoffs IF:

- They defeat both Portland Timbers AND Sporting Kansas City AND New York Red Bulls lose to Philadelphia Union

OR

- they defeat both Portland Timbers AND Sporting Kansas City AND New York Red Bulls tie Philadelphia Union AND D.C. United overcome a goal difference with New York of 7 goals

City needs improvement at right back and center back. I wonder who is available at Buttsenal....

This is up on the BBC too... they need 14 votes to pass it, and they're nearly there. The FA can, evidently, veto it? There's a good argument on both sides of this one... especially as stadiums get older and older, and new ones start coming with price tags that have 9 zero's....

That has been a serious concern for his agent.
