Avoid Danger from Big Bad Wolf Fans: PFA Considers Adding Protective Netting on Pitches

THE LATEST ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE NEWS – Following the coin-pelting incident that injured Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand in last Sunday’s Manchester league derby, the Professional Footballers’ Association is now thinking of surrounding pitches with protective nets.

Gordon Taylor, PFA chief executive, said that such move is necessary to protect the players from erring fans seeking to leave a footpr1nt in matches through pitch invasion and throwing random objects on the pitch.

Daily Mail pundit Jamie Redknapp, for his part, called on players to restrain from taunting opposition fans so that they could avoid flying objects from angry fans. He said that players have to be responsible for their actions on the pitch.

Rising from 9GAG Ridicule: Torres Brace Help Earn Benitez’ First Chelsea Win

THE LATEST ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE NEWS – Fernando Torres’ efforts to improve his disappointing form at Chelsea paid off as he scored a brace on Sunday’s league game against hosts Sunderland 1-3.

The Spanish striker opened scoring on the 11th minute and followed up a 45th-minute penalty to bring visiting Chelsea 0-2 by the end of the first half. Compatriot Juan Mata found the back of the net four minutes into the second half.

Adam Johnson’s strike on the 66th minute proved inadequate to match Chelsea’s dominance at the Stadium of Light. The Blues’ league victory is a first for interim manager Rafael Benitez, who constantly sought to leave a footpr1nt at the club since his takeover from Roberto di Matteo.

Speculating WhatsApp: Chelsea Will Not See Return of Avram Grant

THE LATEST ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE NEWS – Despite persistent reports, Chelsea have not reached out to former Avram Grant regarding an assistant role to interim manager Rafael Benitez.
