Child Arrested by British Police for Racist Messages

Law Enforcement in Great Britain shocked their nation, announcing that a boy aged twelve had been arrested. This follows after the young boy sent racist messages to a footballer with Crystal Palace FC. That footballer is Wilfried Zaha, who didn’t hesitate upon waking up to share these racist sentiments to thousands of followers. What Wilfried Zaha showed was an image of the Ku Klux Klan, where the young boy of twelve uttered: “You better not score tomorrow you [Expletive Content Unavailable]”.

The Ivory Coast birthed Wilfried Zaha, where after acquiring his skillsets the footballer moved to Great Britain. He’d hone natural talents in England & inevitably become contracted through the Premier League. Zaha showed his actual actions and lack of sympathy towards a young child when sharing these messages. Wilfried didn’t consider the numerous opportunities provided to him when aged twelve & younger, instead of wanting to thrive off support from the Black Lives Matter Movement.

Wilfried Zaha indicated that the young boy was supporting Aston Villa, the upcoming opponent that’ll face off against Crystal Palace on Sunday. Both teams didn’t hesitate to release comprehensive statements regarding Zaha’s post, disregarding the age of this twelve-year-old boy again. The Aston Villa Football Club was 1st to issue their apologies & sympathies, deploring all forms of racial discrimination. AVFC then clarified they’d assist law enforcement with their investigation and issue a lifetime ban against this child. Their involvement is suspected of having led to the arrest of this young child.

Backlash Against Severe Punishments Onto a Child

The Premier League then stood behind Wilfried Zaha, remarking that this young man’s actions weren’t remotely acceptable. That is accurate & punishment should’ve been given to this young man. However, the punishment induced is severe, reminiscing what’d be governed onto an adult. Hundreds of thousands worldwide have expressed their disgust towards UK Law Enforcement, Aston Villa Football Club, and the Premier League.

All three entities could’ve used this opportunity to educate a young child, make him a better civilian, and not destroy his future in the process. This child won’t be permitted for employment until 21, with countless other factors in life affecting his future growth. UK Police & the Premier League created a delinquent with no opportunity for his future.

Nashville SC Leaves MLS is Back Tournament

The MLS is Back Tournament has lost their 2nd team amid continued outbreaks of the novel coronavirus. Nashville SC is the most recent organization to announce their departure from the tournament, leaving a remaining 24 teams. The first team leaving the competition was FC Dallas after they saw ten personnel tested positive for COVID-19. Several individuals were players, with one individual being on the coaching lineup, and the remaining two standing at team personnel.

Nashville SC announced over the weekend that one of their players contracted COVID-19 after arriving in Florida on July 1st. That individual exposed an additional eight players on their team, with it being rumoured that employed personnel were also infected. The Commissioner of Major League Soccer, Don Garber, clarified that an influx of positive coronavirus tests within Nashville SC prompted team owners to depart from the “MLS is Back Tournament”. Lack of training throughout seven days would’ve made it impossible for Nashville to compete accurately against their opponents.

The History of Nashville SC….So Far

Considering that Nashville SC is an expansion team for Major League Soccer in 2020, their first season hasn’t been remotely positive. Nashville played two matches before MLS entered their lockdown period, with both games being lost to their opponents. Then the COVID-19 pandemic forced their 1st official season in MLS to be postponed. If that wasn’t enough to deter Nashville, politicians actively fought against the approval of this soccer club’s new stadium. Combine all those factors with the outbreak seen since arriving in Florida & Nashville SC is done with their first season.

Nashville SC would’ve competed in Chicago FC on July 8th. That was postponed for unknown reasons until the next morning, where Don Garber would clarify that Nashville wouldn’t be competing any longer. The team released a formal statement remarking their devastation for not being able to compete, noting that most have tested Asymptomatic for the novel coronavirus & thus cannot risk the lives of opposing players.

Sports analysts are questioning if Major League Soccer will be forced to shut down their tournament. Continued infections throughout Florida are continuously putting footballers at risk, which isn’t right for the league to do for financial gain.

Kevin Silva Enters MLS with TFC

The Toronto Football Club is continuously acquiring new players that’ll increase their chances at obtaining a 2nd MLS Championship. They’ve come close to reaching this goal multiple times but lost to notable teams, like the Seattle Sounders. Greg Vanney & the TFC Squad hope to avoid repeating history after finalizing contract negotiations with Kevin Silva. He’ll stand as the third Goalkeeper for TFC, backing the likes of Quentin Westberg & Alex Bono.

The chances of supporters witnessing Kevin Silva in the “MLS is Back Tournament” is minimal, with Westberg holding priority placement. Under the off chance that Quentin cannot compete in this competition, Alex Bono takes the reigns. Both these Goalkeepers must be terminated from the tournament from a COVID-19 infection before Kevin Silva can defend for TFC.

Kevin Silva was issued a “Loan Contract” from TFC II, the subsidiary team that competes in USL League One. Most soccer analysts are shocked that Greg Vanney provided Kevin Silva with an opportunity into Major League Soccer, with the Goalkeeper appearing eight times for TFC II. Twice those appearances would end in shutouts that didn’t favour Silva. Vanney indicated that January became the period when Silva was becoming considered, with the Goalkeeper showing notable improvements over his recent training camp.

The General Manager for TFC indicated that Kevin Silva had improved his performance in USL League One, becoming an essential asset for TFC II. Matching that with a respectable & driven attitude, Ali Curtis suggested Silva to Greg Vanney. Both the General Manager and TFCs Head Coach anticipate formidable skillsets from Kevin Silva with some professional-grade training. It should be noted that Silva was born in Pennsylvania, eventually moving to Europe, and then returned home in hopes of obtaining MLS placement. That dream has now been accomplished.

TFC Concerns for Safety in Florida

The chance that Kevin Silva will be permitted to compete in the “MLS is Back Tournament” is unlikely. Those chances are dwindling for all TFC Punters, with Greg Vanney & Ali Curtis determining they’ll remain in Florida. Significant penalties would ensue the Toronto Football Club if the General Manager, Head Coach, and Players all rejected the concept of competing.

It should be mentioned that cases of COVID-19 have drastically increased throughout the last fourteen days in Florida. This follows after Florida Politicians reopened their economy without any social distancing requirements. Thousands per day are contracting the virus, including active personnel & players with professional sports teams. TFC doesn’t want an outbreak of COVID-19 in their camp, which could prompt an early departure from the “MLS is Back Tournament”.

Liverpool FC Shamed by Their Fans

Supporters for Liverpool FC have disgusted & shamed their club, which follows after ten thousand civilians in this region gathered in the downtown area. Proceedings that were initiated by fans were deemed “Wholly Unacceptable” by Liverpool FC. Not exclusively because of COVID-19 & the drastic risks that are brought after civilians meet in mass congregations, but also because of the significant damage that unfolded across the Liverpool Waterfront.

The actions of thousands have prompted for 34 Liverpool citizens to be injured, with three in severe conditions. Those three individuals aren’t expected to recover from their injuries & could die in Hospital, upon which manslaughter charges will be laid upon unnamed criminals. Liverpool Firefighters also confirmed that Liver Building was lite into flames, forcing these men to extinguish the blaze in hopes of avoiding physical damage. This wasn’t possible & Liver Building, a landmark piece of architecture for this region, now needs significant repairs.

The £10,000.00 in damages to Liver Building was initiated by a nineteen-year-old from Scarisbrick, Lancashire. Law enforcement arrested this man under Arson Charger, with video evidence placing this individual as the original instigator for this blaze. The unnamed man lite a firework & shot it directly towards Liver Building, which prompted fifteen others to implement identical actions. Those fifteen individuals are now charged with Violent Disorder. Many others have been arrested for Assault on Law Enforcement, with police officers being subjugated to violent altercations throughout the night.

Attacks on Police

The Chief Constable of Merseyside Police clarified that law enforcement has projectile missiles thrown at them, with two officers being attacked after protecting civilians from assault. Law enforcement was attacked whenever trying to arrest someone that committed violent acts was found & apprehended. Bottles were thrown & glass shards penetrated these officers. Liverpool Law Enforcement is requesting that civilians with information on those responsible for attacking officers come forward, their info won’t be released. The likelihood of that happening in the current climate of law enforcement is unlikely.

It should be mentioned that Liverpool Politicians condemned the actions of their civilians. The local government noted it’s impossible to move forward from this virus with thousands meeting up, increasing the danger associated with COVID-19 & possibly re-enforcing social distancing measures.
