    Sunderland fined over inelligible player


    by The Boy Holty

    In the latest display of the total lack of fairness in football and the big clubs getting away with murder, Sunderland have been fined for fielding an ineligible player in four league matches plus a League Cup tie. Sunderland claimed it was due to an 'administrative error'. No points were deducted.
    Its just over seven years since Bury were booted out of the FA Cup and hung out to dry for fielding an ineligible player for the final ten minutes of an FA Cup tie that was already won before he came on to the field. Bury confessed their own 'administrative' error and were shown zero leniency by the FA and yes, I'm still angry about it.
