Headlines
Beloved Sutton United goalkeeper Wayne Shaw was immediately caught up in a gambling scandal after their defeat against Arsenal in the FA Cup fifth rough. Cameras showed him eating a pie (or pasty, if you prefer) on the bench towards the end of the match. Turns out there was a a gambling site run by The Sun newspaper (who sponsors the club) with 8 to 1 odds on such an occurrence and a few of Shaw's friends took the bet. The FA and the UK Gambling Commission is investigating the incident and Shaw has resigned from his post of backup goalkeeper and goalkeeping coach at Sutton United.

There were a few Chinese move rumors floating around yesterday and early today as their transfer window nears its close. The first involved Wayne Rooney, who, despite talks with Chinese Super League club Tianjin Quanjin, is staying put at Manchester United for at least the rest of this season. The next involved Toronto FC star Sebastian Giovinco turning down a move to Asia amidst work that he might leave MLS. Finally, Manchester United's Ashley Young could be on the move to Shandong Luneng.
