Pair of c***s free to play

If either still gets a 3 match ban, they'd now miss Spurs game


Report's in the post, for sure


Rooney & Scholes free for opener


Wayne Rooney and Paul Scholes will be available for Manchester United's Premiership opener with Fulham, despite being sent off in a pre-season match.


The game was in Holland and the Dutch Football Association's report to its English counterparts was delayed in the post, so the duo can play on 20 August.


An FA spokesman told BBC Sport that the report had not arrived by close of business on Tuesday evening.


Any suspension would apply 14 days on from when the FA receive the report.


Rooney was dismissed for allegedly elbowing Pepe in the 3-1 win over Porto in Amsterdam while Scholes was sent off for two bookable offences.


The referee's report to the Dutch FA automatically triggers a letter to the FA, which would be duty bound to give both players a violent conduct charge.


If proved, that charge carries carried a three-match suspension.
