Quote
Landon Donovan said his San Diego Loyal "would not stand" for bigotry having left the pitch in protest after an alleged homophobic comment was aimed at midfielder Collin Martin, who is gay.

An opposition player from Phoenix Rising was accused of making the comment just before half-time in their second-tier USL Championship game.

Loyal players returned after the break but walked off when the referee blew his whistle, forfeiting a match they were leading 3-1 and ending their chances of reaching the play-offs.

They forfeited a match against LA Galaxy II last week after an alleged racial slur was aimed at midfielder Elijah Martin. The player accused of making the comment has since been let go by Galaxy.

Loyal players took a knee before walking off during Wednesday's second division game against Phoenix Rising.

Loyal manager and executive vice-president Donovan, who played in the Premier League for Everton, said: "We went through a really hard incident last week in the LA match and we made a vow to ourselves, to our community, to our players, to the club, to USL, that we would not stand for bigotry, homophobic slurs, things that don't belong in our game."

Martin had been sent off after the incident but the red card was rescinded.

Instead, one was given to 38-year-old former forward Donovan - the United States' second-most capped player - after he came on to the pitch in the aftermath.

Phoenix Rising said the player who was alleged to have made the homophobic comment "vehemently denied" the allegations.

True, out-Foresting Forest by winning two European Cups without bothering to win their own League first.

Unless i'm missing something, Forest won the league in '78.

Hence they out-Forested them. At least Forest had the good grace to win the League once before winning the big one twice.

I love how the forward points to the sky as if God had anything to do with it.

Bit worrying, aren't we likely to be signing lots of players from FC Kobenhavn?

Despite relegation Bournemouth seem to have managed to keep enough decent players to put out a competitive Championship side.

True. I was convinced they'd sink.

Hamer and O'Hare streets ahead of the other Coventry players in the half an hour I watched.

Apparently Hamer is Coventry's first 1M+ signing since 2008 (Freddie Eastwood).

Me too. I thought they might well struggle in the Championship being such a small club. Like Swindon, Bradford, Barnsley, Wimbledon all struggled after a spell in the Premier League. I still suspect Bournemouth will go on to struggle this season. It is currently Coventry 1 Bournemouth 2 and I need a Coventry equaliser because I have had a 14/1 bet on a 'Desmond'.

Coventry 1 Bournemouth 3 and Bournemouth go top of the table. So much for my Desmond.
