And finally… steward comes a cropper

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

Official proof that stewards are harder than players this week. Last weekend Newcastle United faced Fenerbahce (in Austria, naturally) with one steward coming a cropper thanks to a brutal assault by Toon full-back Davide Santon. If Santon had done that to another player, he’d still be rolling around now, but our man in the high-viz jacket is up faster than you can say “compensation claim”.

And finally… scoop

Liverpool loanee Divock Origi, currently on loan at Bundesliga side Wolfsburg, stakes his claim for miss of the season this week. Origi somehow manages to miss an open goal from a couple of yards, scooping the ball into the stands. A real gem.
