The cup dream is over for small time Salford after losing 2-0 to
Hartlepool United.

The League two side were too good in the FA Cup second round
replay, despite recently struggling to find the back of the net.

The game went into extra time, with Scott Fenwick and Mikael
Mandron both scoring late into the added period.

Public interest in Salford City began when the class of 92
held shares in the ownership of the Manchester born club.

Manchester United greats Phil Neville, Gary Neville, Nicky Butt,
Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs all share a part of the semi professional club.

The Salford players left the field dejected after the game, despite a brilliant run for a team in the

Northern Premier League Premier Division.


 Melbourne City will try everything in their power to avoid
selling Aaron Mooy in the January transfer window.

The Manchester City owned club refused a $2m deal from Saudi
Arabians Al-Nassr, but it seems they are avoiding the inevitable.

Mooy has revealed his desire to play at the highest level,
despite enjoying his dominance in the A-League.

“In football things can happen really fast. I’m happy in
Melbourne. I’m enjoying it. I’m no different to any player. Every player wants
to play at the highest level he can.”


Back in 2010 FC Twente were on top of the world winning the Dutch
Eredivisie title under the management of Steve McLaren.

Five years later and Twente have hit rock bottom.

The club currently sits third bottom from the table, and
have been found guilty of breaking third party player ownership regulations.

FIFA has a strict policy against third party player
ownership, which led to a three year ban of any European football.

The Dutch FA believe they have been “misled” by the club
after Twente concealed information of an ownership contract with Doyen-Sports
