DAILY MAIL

Greg Dyke has moved to try to end the revolt that has engulfed the Football Association by announcing Rio Ferdinand and Roy Hodgson will join his England Commission.

The Football Association will launch an investigation after an assistant referee was struck by a smoke bomb thrown from the stands at Villa Park.

DAILY EXPRESS

Rio Ferdinand will add his voice to the debate on improving England's fortunes after agreeing to join the Football Association's new commission, along with national coach Roy Hodgson.

DAILY TELEGRAPH

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott, 24, has been ruled out for at least another two weeks after suffering a setback on his recovery from abdominal surgery and will miss the next three games.

Greg Dyke failed to quell the unrest in his own Football Association board last night after Heather Rabbatts's revolt against the make-up of his commission into the English game continued, despite the addition of Rio Ferdinand and Roy Hodgson.

Meanwhile, the FA has opened an investigation after a flare was thrown and struck assistant referee David Bryan after Tottenham's first goal at Villa Park on Sunday.

THE TIMES

Rio Ferdinand and Roy Hodgson joined Greg Dyke's commission yesterday as the FA chairman sought to defuse the row over the lack of diversity and heavyweight clout on his panel.

The FA launched an investigation last night after Dave Bryan, an assistant referee, was struck by a smoke bomb thrown from the stand holding visiting supporters at Villa Park.

THE INDEPENDENT

Manchester United's Rio Ferdinand is adamant he can put his difficult relationship with England manager Roy Hodgson behind him, after the two men were named by Football Association chairman Greg Dyke as members of the commission to improve the England team.

After a week of headlines, of hype, of his first England goal, his first front-page storm - and a new contract too - Andros Townsend made it very clear at Villa Park on Sunday that he is a footballer worth paying attention to.

THE GUARDIAN

Rio Ferdinand has been appointed to the FA's commission into the future of English football, two days after the chairman, Greg Dyke, faced stinging criticism from one of his board members over the ethnic makeup of the panel. A sparkling performance by Andros Townsend in Tottenham Hotspurs' 2-0 victory over Aston Villa at Villa Park was overshadowed when an assistant referee was hit by a flare thrown by a member of the visiting support.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
