Juventus: Hit with a fine

Juventus have been fined 5000 euros by the Italian Football League after a group of young supporters repeatedly insulted Udinese goalkeeper Zeljko Brkic during Sunday's match.

A total of 12,000 children under 13 filled the Juventus stadium at the weekend to watch the Serie A game against Udinese.

The club's initiative, which was applauded by many, prevented Sunday's game from being played behind closed doors.

Juve had been handed a stadium closure for that match as punishment for their fans' geographically discriminatory chants towards Napoli supporters in last month's game.

A statement from the Lega Serie A read: "Juventus have been fined 5000 euros for their very young supporters having repeatedly insulted a player of a rival team."

Brkic made a number of fine saves throughout the game before Fernando Llorente scored the winner in stoppage time to hand Juve a 1-0 triumph.

The win lifted Juve three points clear at the top of Serie A.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
