Welsh FA chief Jonathan Ford avoids action over England remark

Craig Burley and Steve Nicol weigh the pros and cons of Chris Coleman leaving the Wales job to manage Sunderland.

Football Association of Wales chief executive Jonathan Ford will face no disciplinary action over his comment that the next manager of Wales would "definitely not" be English.

The FAW council voted on Tuesday that a comment Ford made to BBC Sport Wales about Chris Coleman's successor should be explored further, with a three-man disciplinary commission set up.

But the FAW, in a statement posted on its official website on Thursday, said Ford has clarified his comments, where he repeated details of...

Welsh FA chief executive to face disciplinary over England remark

Craig Burley and Steve Nicol weigh the pros and cons of Chris Coleman leaving the Wales job to manage Sunderland.

Football Association of Wales (FAW) chief executive Jonathan Ford is to face a disciplinary commission over his comment that the next Wales manager will "definitely" not be English.

The FAW's investigation could delay the appointment of the next Wales manager as Ford is due to head up the process of finding Chris Coleman's successor.

Ford said last week that the FAW preferred the next Wales manager to be Welsh and "definitely not English."

David Moyes: Joe Hart will play again but England spot is not my concern

The ESPN FC guys discuss how much credit David Moyes is due following West Ham's 1-0 victory over Chelsea.

David Moyes has assured Joe Hart he will get games at West Ham, but warned the goalkeeper: "It's not my job to pick the England team.''

Hart's World Cup hopes are in jeopardy after Moyes dropped the 30-year-old for Saturday's 1-0 win over Chelsea.

England boss Gareth Southgate wants his squad to be playing regularly for their clubs in the run-up to the tournament in Russia next year, but Adrian now looks set for a run in the West Ham goal, with Hart possibly restricted to appearances in the cup...

Paul Stewart (left), pictured playing for Sunderland, has described the hotline figures as 'frightening.'

A confidential hotline for victims of sexual abuse in football has received more than 2,500 calls since being set up last year.

The majority of the cases are historical and are being investigated by police as part of the Operation Hydrant inquiry.

Operation Hydrant was set up after a number of former players revealed last year that they had been victims of abuse.

Children's charity the NSPCC set up the hotline, funded by the FA, to encourage more people to come forward.

NSPCC figures show that 285...

England set to face Scotland at Euro 2020 should both sides qualify

Gareth Southgate spoke following the World Cup draw about England's chances in Russia.
The ESPN FC panel feel England should emerge from Group G, but first must overcome the fear factor of World Cups.
Stewart Robson feels England lucked out and got a fairly easy group that contains Belgium, Panama and Tunisia.

England and Scotland are set to face each other in the group stage of Euro 2020 if both teams qualify.

Tournament organisers UEFA announced on Thursday that Wembley will stage four more games than previously planned in the tournament which will be played in major cities across Europe.

And a random draw to decide which cities will host group games paired London with Glasgow, with the assurance that each team that qualifies will play at least two home matches during the pool stage.

That means England...
