FA make their move
The Football Association have finished their investigation into the famous Pie Gate scandal which involved Sutton United goalkeeper Wayne Shaw.
The goalkeeper was seen eating a pie during the latter stages of an FA Cup fixture against Arsenal at home.
It was a historic figure after Sutton made it the furthest they ever had in the competition but it was marred by some pretty serious problems after.
Wayne Shaw’s pie eating stunt wasn’t exactly just a coincidence, in fact, it was a lot more sinister than that.
The Sun had actually promoted the game with Shaw and were running a betting offer on whether the player would eat a pie during the game.
It was found out that the player actually did it on purpose to allow for the bet to land, something which is a big no in football.
The FA decided to fine Shaw £375 and ban him from footballing activity for the next two months on football betting charges.
The footballing ban won’t make too big of a difference but the hefty fine will certainly prove to be a warning for sides in this FA Cup season.
Though, we highly doubt there will be any more situations like that in years to come.

Man City considering legal action against La Liga president
While there are certainly some legal issues in England hence the Wayne Shaw fine, there are some in Spain too.
Manchester City are exploring the possibility of legal action against La Liga president Javier Tebas.
The boss gave some very damning comments about how Man City were spending in the transfer window.
