Daniel Sturridge is suddenly a free agent! After scoring 9 goals in 16 matches in Turkey, he's been released today by mutual consent. Don't know if Wolves would be interested as an emergency back-up striker to Jimenez on a pay per match deal?

Could be handy as we're going well in the PL and Europe.

{Ed001's Note - he can't sign mate. He was not released before the transfer window shut so cannot sign for an English club.}

Thanks ED, I didn't know that.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

02 Mar 2020 16:38:46
He's banned for four months anyway.

All is revealed. Surridge suspended from football until June, for football-related betting offences. That's why he's left his club in Turkey.

Sturridge now fined £150,000 as well. Wow. He must be a serial offender. That's his career down the pan. Silly boy. Nuno would have kicked him into touch if he'd been at Wolves.

{Ed001's Note - he is not a serial offender, he doesn't even gamble. This is about him giving his brother a tip about a loan move he was meant to be making, which he never made anyway. It is an odd situation, he should have known better as someone who doesn't gamble himself.}

Ed- definitely is an odd situation mostly because of how lenient it was originally treated! That said apparently they took two previously dismissed charges into account so weather its him making the bet or his milk man it does sound like he's done it a few times (well at least more than the once on the Sevilla move) . What a silly guy, just don't get why multi millionaires risk their careers for this stuff for what to them is buttons!

{Ed001's Note - no mate, it was one incident that they came up with 9 charges from. They dismissed two charges originally, he is now being punished for them after the FA appealed. I am not sure it was leniently treated initially or whether they are now being lenient or if either was harsh. It is an odd situation as the FA act on a totally different level to the legal system. Sturridge has not been proven guilty, they just go on the balance of probability. Sturridge has not placed any bets or been charged with placing any. It is about whether telling his brother about a move is against the rules or not.

Personally I think his brother was an idiot for placing the bet, regardless of why. However, no one should be able to place bets on the transfer market anyway.}

Oh apologies I misread it and thought that other incidents had come to light! All quite bizarre, like you say I really can't imagine a single good reason for betting on transfers OTHER than with inside info?! Asking for trouble, I bet there's been a shameful amount of ill gotten gains made that way over time!

{Ed001's Note - well exactly. It is difficult to have sympathy with bookies though!}

Good point Ed about the FA's legal process. A decision is made on the balance of probabilities, like in civil law. It doesn't have to be proven beyond all reasonable doubt, like in criminal law.

Mind you, if the FA decided to let criminal law apply in footballing matters, certain players would be up on charges of assault and GBH on Adama Traore! He is being targeted constantly. Now the the trick is to pull his arm to dislocate his shoulder. In any criminal court is assault!

{Ed001's Note - there is a lot of that goes on. Salah and Mane get exactly the same treatment. Refs do nothing about it, so it carries on. Yet the likes of Grealish and Zaha only have to have someone breath on them and they get a free kick! It is unreal.}
