thumbnail Hello,

As the fallout from the events of Sunday continue to unravel, the goalkeeper and former defender call for empathy, while a bad fashion sense and Lionel Richie are also discussed

Unfortunately, alleged racist abuse is once again the hot topic in football - and our favourite professionals are not veering away from discussing it.

Referee Mark Clattenburg has been accused of inappropriate language, including racial words, towards two Chelsea players.

However, there are other topics making personal headlines for the players, including Fifa 13, Hurricane Sandy in New York and Lionel Richie.
