    Yes, but appeals pending, it could run on years.

    He faces up to 75 years, he'll obviously appeal, but he'll be banged up while that happens, so at least justice has been served for now (the US appeals system is really poor anyway, they don't even release people who are quite clearly completely innocent).

    Schalke players and staff have been attacked with eggs by their own fans following their first relegation from the Bundesliga in 33 years.

    The club suffered their 21st league defeat of the season in a 1-0 loss at Arminia Bielefeld on Tuesday.


    Returning to Schalke's stadium early on Wednesday, the players were met by up to 600 of the club's fans.

    Gelsenkirchen police said fans had already started lighting fireworks and flares near the ground after the game.

    "Once the team arrived and stepped off the bus there were severe protests," police said in a statement. "Eggs were thrown at the players, who were also verbally attacked."

    In response to the incident, Schalke said some "unidentified individuals clearly stepped over lines that are non-negotiable".

    "While there is understandable frustration and anger for the relegation, the club will never accept it when the physical integrity of its players and staff is put in danger," Schalke said.

    The 2018 Bundesliga runners-up are one of the most well supported clubs in Germany, typically drawing more than 60,000 fans to home games.

    The (very) few bits I've seen and read about Crouch, he seems to come over as really decent bloke, quite comfortable with who he is. It's well worth repeating the one that everyone knows, and I don't care if it's made up, but when asked what he would have been if he hadn't been a footballer, he said 'a virgin'.

    Huesca: The tiny club from the Pyrenees catching the eye while trying to survive in La Liga
    It is the little details that matter at Huesca.

    On Thursday, club captain Jorge Pulido will pull on the latest in a series of bespoke armbands decorated with details of their opponents, as the Aragonese side travel to Atletico Madrid.


    Huesca are playing in only their second La Liga campaign after winning promotion last season and a result against title-chasing Atletico would boost their chances of avoiding going straight back down, as they did in 2018-19.

    Survival in Spain's top flight is no small task for a club nestled amid the foothills of the Pyrenees and whose 7,638-seat Estadio El Alcoraz was hosting third-tier football six years ago.

    Think it was Coyle, but yeah. Nice summary of the day there - without the 200 bpm heart rate.

    At which point did the legal profession from the police to judges, have that little thought, hang on a minute, this does not make sense? Some 900 people on the fiddle?

    Neil Hudgell should do ok out of it.
