Six arrested over allegations of spot-fixing in English football

December 10, 2013 by David Bolt


Two days ago, a potentially huge story broke here in the UK where, at the time of writing, six men, five of which are current professional footballers, have been arrested as part of an investigation by the National Crime Agency (the national agency dedicated to fighting organised crime) over allegations of spot-fixing in football matches.

Those players include former Premier League players DJ Campbell, now at Blackburn Rovers, and Sam Sodje, a former Nigeria international who is currently unattached after being released by Portsmouth last summer. The other men arrested were Sodje’s brother Steven, Oldham Athletic midfielder Cristian Montano and Tranmere Rovers players Akpo Sodje (another of Sam Sodje’s brothers) and Ian Goodison, a former Jamaica international. At the time of writing Goodison remains in custody whereas the other players have been released on bail.

Football Reunites in Cyprus

November 21, 2013 by David Bolt

It’s not often I can write something in praise of FIFA and UEFA. However, last week, they may have helped to broker a deal to end a bitter dispute between two nations (in terms of playing football, anyway) and to bring in one of the largest European nations currently outside of FIFA and UEFA in from the football wilderness.

Cyprus is an island nation in the east of the Mediterranean Sea. Throughout history, Cyprus has been subsumed into the various empires that have existed in the Eastern Mediterranean, ending up as part of the Ottoman Empire. The population of Cyprus was split, mostly between people of Greek and Turkish extraction, with about 75% being of Greek origin and about 25% of Turkish origin.
