Football News – Arsenal hope for U-turn over new deal, Fergie’s Maura bid KO’d & much more…

The FA will study findings of the John Terry court case before deciding whether to bring any charges towards the Chelsea skipper. The Chief Magistrate acquitted JT on the basis that the evidence wasn’t 100% conclusive; therefore they couldn’t deliver a guilty verdict against him following alleged racist remarks towards QPR’s Anton Ferdinand. It remains to see what the FA’s take of the incident is, considering the stance they took over Luis Suarez.

Elsewhere in the news Brendan Rodgers has made his first signing at Liverpool; Sepp Blatter faces fresh calls to step down, while Peter Crouch was gutted to miss out on Euro 2012 but hasn’t given up hope of playing for England in the future.
