    The fans are getting played...there was clearly no intention of Arsene leaving and the board knew/know this.

    Interesting to see what happens cause to me, the team have stopped playing for him, but you can't clear out a whole team.

    Fifa bans Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey for life for 'match manipulation'

    Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey has been banned for life by Fifa for what it calls "match manipulation".

    The ban results from a penalty he awarded to South Africa in a 2-1 win over Senegal in a 2018 World Cup qualifier in November.

    He penalised Kalidou Koulibaly for handball, but replays showed the ball hit his knee.

    Football's world governing body says it will give more details "once the decision becomes final and binding".

    Lamptey can now appeal to Fifa and the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

    One of his assistants, David Laryea, also from Ghana, had charges against him dismissed by Fifa's disciplinary committee.

    The win for South Africa left them in second place in the four-team group after two matches, with Senegal in third.

    Lamptey, who also officiated at the Rio Olympics last year, declined BBC Sport's invitation to comment, saying he would do so later.

    The Senegal Football Federation (FSF), who made a complaint to Fifa over Lamptey, is happy with the decision.

    "Today there are many reasons to be happy about this decision - a decision that will be remembered as being significant but will also warn everybody that they are being watched," FSF vice-president Abdoulaye Sow told BBC Sport.

    "All cheating and stealing will be punished according to its gravity.

    "Fifa has clearly struck a big blow and has promised in its decision to talk again about the match when the decision is final and binding."

    David Moyes is a moron.

    Sunderland manager David Moyes has revealed he dropped Didier Ndong for Saturday's clash with Burnley in order to bring more 'Britishness' to his midfield.The Black Cats did their chances of staying in the Premier League little good as they drew 0-0 with the Clarets at the Stadium of Light, leaving them firmly rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table, seven points from safety.

    The chase for top 4 in the Premier League - A look at remaining fixtures

    The international break is upon us so I thought it'd be a nice chance to compare the run in's of the 7 teams currently fighting for a top 4 finish (or top 6).

    The current table is as follows - http://imgur.com/a/WzfX8. Everton's form has pushed them within touching distance of the top 5 albeit having played more games, Arsenal have dropped out of the top 4 and Manchester United finally moved out of 6th place. It's very hard to see anyone catching Chelsea at the top.

    I've compiled lists of the remaining fixtures of each of the top 7 sides. I've coloured them in terms of difficulty (which will no doubt cause uproar if people don't agree) for an easier glance at potential fixture problems. Green to red, green being easiest obviously. I've included all of a teams potential fixtures including if they progress in the FA Cup or Europa League to show how congested their schedule may become, although this seems to only effect Man United. There are also some games that have been postponed yet to be rescheduled and the fixtures in May have not been moved for TV or to ease fixture congestion yet so they will almost definitely move a day or two in most cases.

    Most of the teams we play will already be on the beach in their heads so we should be okay.... probably.
