A League Two match between Leyton Orient and Colchester United experienced a two hour delay after Orient fans stormed the pitch in protest in the 85th minute. Leyton was relegated from the Football League for the first time in its history and has been experiencing financial hardships. Fans were protesting the ownership of Francisco Becchetti, who is responsible for the downfall of the club. The club announced the abandonment of the match, which got the fans to leave the ground. The final five minutes and stoppage time were played in an empty park in order to "to maintain the integrity of the competition" with Colchester fighting for a spot in the promotion playoffs.

Tottenham has confirmed the long rumor that they would play their home matches at Wembley Stadium next year. That means the current White Hart Lane will close permanently at the end of this season. The final match there will be May 14 against Manchester United. Spurs played their Champions League home games at England's national stadium to little success. The current plan is to play there for one season before their new 60,000 seat home more or less on top of White Hart Lane is done.

A couple clubs inked key players to extensions yesterday. Liverpool signed center back Dejan Lovren to a deal that will keep him at Anfield until 2021 and Bayern Munich have extended Brazilian midfielder Thiago, also until 2021.

Hooligan's Daily: French investigating FIFA bribes for 2022 and 2018 World Cups

Yesterday's Scores
Premier League
Manchester City 0-0 Manchester United

City had the better of the chances throughout this match, particularly at the end after Marouane Fellaini was sent off for a headbutt to Sergio Aguero. Aguero gets himself an Oscar for the acting job after the attack, but Fellaini was on a yellow card already and would have been shown a second yellow even without the egregious flopping. The only difference it makes is Fellaini's lengthier suspension, which could be appealed. This hurts the Red Devils' chances of making the top four, but they should get the Champions League anyway since they are the odds on favorite to win the Europa League.

French prosecutors are investigating the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, two things we already know are corrupt as all get out. They questioned Sepp Blatter last week "as a witness" in the investigation. It's hard to say what effect this would have on FIFA, who already mostly ignored the findings of American and Swiss investigators two years ago. We can always hold out hope that the French find something new that could take away the World Cup from Qatar in 2022, but I can't imagine anything new will come up.

Kingsley Coman will remain with Bayern Munich after the German giants made their loan from Juventus permanent. Coman has eight goals in 58 appearances in all competitions this season and will cost €21 million.

More countries have been fined by FIFA for homophobic chanting. This latest batch of fines has docked Brazil and Argentine 35,000 Swiss francs and Mexico 10,000 Swiss francs for incidents involving discriminatory and unsporting conduct by fans, including homophobic chants" during the last batch of World Cup Qualifiers. Other fan related fines were levied on Italy, Albania, Iran, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Poland, and Montenegro. Most of those fines are for the use of fireworks during games.

Barcelona and Real Madrid use their big wins to remain in lockstep atop La Liga. The entire thing will probably come down to the one extra game Real Madrid has to play against Celta Vigo that was postponed due to high winds back in February. That game does not have a set date yet.

Burnley's Joey Barton always seems to be getting himself in trouble. Whether its red cards on the pitch or various incidents off it, he never seems to be on the right side of things. His latest scandal involves gambling and has landed him an 18 month suspension from the game. The 34 year old reportedly bet on over 1,200 matches, including five games in which he played. He plans to appeal the suspension, although this is probably the end of his career.

Thanks to the success of the Copa America Centenario in the USA last summer, CONMEBOL has decided to make the 2019 event in Brazil a 16 team extravaganza once again. The governing body for football in South America confirmed the decision yesterday. Normally, the ten South American nations are joined by a pair of guests for the tournament to make a 12 team field. I would be far from surprised if the USA receives another invite thanks to their wonderful job hosting the 100th anniversary event last year,

Real Madrid will deal with a couple minor road blocks as they look to hold onto their slim La Liga lead in the final weeks of the season. First off, their captain, Sergio Ramos, will get a one game suspension for his red card tackle on Lionel Messi during Sunday's El Clasico. He will miss today's game agaisnt Deportivo La Coruna. They will also be without Gareth Bale through at least the Champions League semis against Atletico Madrid after he left the Barcelona game with a grade two calf strain.

The MLS Players Union published their annual salary report that shows what each player is making. Once again, Kaka tops the list at at jsut above $7 million. He is slightly higher paid than Toronto FC's Sebastian Giovinco, who also crosses that $7 million barrier. Toronto has the highest overall payroll at $22.5 million and has three players in the top ten in wages and there are only seven teams that are paying more than $9 million in total. The minimum salary jumped to $53,000, but there are still a hefty 75 players making less than $60,000.

Newcastle's 4-1 win over Preston North End secured their spot back in the Premier League for next season. It took manager Rafa Benitez one year to get back to the top after he shockingly stayed with the team through their relegation last season. They will join Brighton as newly promoted teams next season. The final spot has five realistic contenders.Reading, Sheffield Wednesday, Huddersfield, and Fulham are all currently in playoff spots while Leeds remains in the hunt.

Phoenix Rising coach Frank Yallop has resigned from his post as Didier Drogba sets to take on a role as an owner and player. He claimed it was time to step aside as the team seeks a spot in MLS behind the power of their new Ivorian executive forward. Rick Schantz, who was Yallop's assistant, will lead the team until a permanent replacement is found.

Barcelona got the late win against a ten man Real Madrid thanks to Lionel Messi's 500th career goal, which sent Ray Hudson into his usual state of delirium when something like this happens. IT sends Barca level on points with Real Madrid at the top of the table, but Ronaldo and company have an extra game left to play.

Should he accomplish that, he will have won it twice in a row since he was a star on Leicester City last season.

This isn't much if a shocker, but Barcelona have confirmed Neymar will not play in El Clasico today. Their appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport, while still not being heard yet, will not affect his status and they have been warned of punishment for an illegal team should Neymar see the field. Neymar traveled to Madrid hoping to play, but he will be nothing more than moral support at this point.

The UEFA Champions League semi-final draw was held early yesterday morning. We will be treated with a Madrid Derby, and a rematch of two of the last three Finals, when Real Madrid takes on their less world renowned neighbors Atletico Madrid. Juventus, who just blanked Barcelona over two legs, will take on AS Monaco in a match of a team with relentless attacking quality and the best defense in Europe. The first legs will take place on May 2 and May 3 with the second legs a week later.

Manchester United has drawn Spanish side Celta Vigo for the Europa League semis. Should they win, they will take on either Ajax of Olympique Lyonnais in the final. First legs of each tie will go down on May 4 and the second on May 11.

United will have to seek minor European glory without the help of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Their leading goal scorer has been diagnosed with a torn ACL, which will keep him out for the rest of the season and beyond. Early reports have him out until January, which would kill any rumors of him heading to LA Galaxy over the summer.

Barcelona are holding out hope that Neymar will be available to play in Sunday's Clasico. They are taking their unsuccessful appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport with the hope of at least delaying the start of the suspension until after the game. They may not get the ban overturned, but if the hearing can't happen before Sunday, they will at least get an extra star player for the biggest game of their season.
