The riots in London, and other parts of the country, recently have been disgraceful. These have caused damage, and problems, for a number of people and businesses – some of which have been destroyed.

As far as the football goes the ‘civil unrest’ in the capital cause Fulham’s curtain raiser against Villa to be postponed.

A joint premier league and football league statement has been issued: ‘The Premier League and Football League are saddened by the recent incidents of civil unrest and the effect it is having on local communities.

‘We are in on-going discussions with our London-based clubs, the relevant police forces and statutory authorities, in regard to the staging of the coming weekend’s fixtures in the capital.

‘The Metropolitan Police has conveyed to us the dynamic nature of the current situation and with that in mind all parties will review the situation on Thursday and make a further public statement.

‘With the information currently available there is no reason to think any matches outside of London will be affected.

‘We are conscious of the need to keep fans informed of any developments and will, of course, keep them as up-to-date as possible through club, league and media channels.’

Tomorrow should give a clear indication as to what will happen…
