A United fans’ blog, therepublikofmancunia.com, claimed supporters are planning to send their own message during the game against Aston Villa on Saturday. A group of Manchester United fans is threatening to hire a light aircraft to tow a banner over Old Trafford with the message calling for manager David Moyes to go, it has been claimed. The blog states: “A group of United fans have raised £840 in a day to fund a plane to fly over Old Trafford with a message reading ‘Wrong One – Moyes Out’. “The message is a response to the Stretford End Flags banner which reads ‘The Chosen One’.” United would not be drawn on the threat, but there is no doubt the ‘Chosen One’ banner is causing controversy. After United stumbled to a 3-0 defeat at home to Manchester City, there were angry protests directed against Moyes and his predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson. Some fans had earlier called for the group that made the banner – Stretford End Flags (SEF) – to remove it following the 3-0 defeat to Liverpool almost two weeks ago. Stewards also gathered around the banner at full-time after the City defeat to prevent it from being seized. Meanwhile, Darren Fletcher has acknowledged United’s players need to do better. He told Sky Sports News: “We’re hurting and we know the fans are hurting. “We’ve lost matches and the Stretford End has still been singing our names as we go off the pitch. That’s humbling. “All the players speak about it in the dressing room, that the fans are suffering and we need to do better for them.” The Scottish international midfielder does not believe the Champions League quarter-final against defending champions Bayern Munich is a foregone conclusion. Bayern have already wrapped up their domestic title, while United languish in seventh place in the Barclays Premier League, 18 points off the pace. However, Fletcher said: “We don’t expect an easy game but we are still in it and we’ve played some good stuff in the Champions League. Don’t write us off.” Press Associationlast_img read more

July 15, 2020 Instead of supporting gamblers during the COVID-19 lockdown, enhanced online gaming restrictions in Sweden ‘could do more harm to consumer protection’ according to the European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA).Yesterday, Sweden’s Minister for Health and Social Affairs Ardalan Shekarabi  proposed that weekly deposits were limited to SEK5,000, with a SEK100 cap on bonus offers in a bid to protect customers during the ongoing pandemic.Maarten Haijer, Secretary General, European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA), highlighted that the lack of targeting with the new restrictions ‘could actually harm more customers than they protect’.He said: “In Sweden, gambling advertising spending is down and we haven’t seen evidence that average customer spend is up. Even so, there is no compelling evidence that arbitrary restrictions on customer spend have a positive effect on safer gambling.“The measures could actually harm more customers than they protect because customers can easily find black market websites where the restrictions, and any other social protections, do not apply.”EGBA highlighted that the tightened restrictions could encourage players to consider unregulated websites, which ‘do not apply any other of Sweden’s consumer protection measures, including the country’s Spelpaus self-exclusion scheme’.The trade body added: “Given that the measures will take effect on June 1 and expire at the end of 2020, we also question the effectiveness of the measures in protecting customers during the coronavirus.”last_img read more
