The EFL has finally announced its sanction for Leeds United on charges that they broke EFL rule 87b – “doing something that isn’t illegal but which could be in other circumstances.” resulting in a £200k fine and a rule change.
Simon Sharpe, speaking on behalf of the EFL, announced the new sanction, “We don’t want to see this happening again, not in our leagues.

Opening up to us she revealed, ‘’If I’m ever struggling with motivation in a race, all I think about are the warm, positive affirmations I receive, such as ‘nice pins’ or ‘you don’t get many of them for a pound’.” Continue reading “It’s the comments men make about my tits that really keeps me going, admits lady runner”
