Jake Livermore


Recommended Posts


Hull City midfielder Jake Livermore has tested positive for cocaine and will not play again for Hull City this season.

Livermore, who has made one appearance for England, failed a random drug test after Hull’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace last month.

The club are expected to release a statement this afternoon, but it is a massive blow to manager Steve Bruce, whose side are desperately trying to avoid relegation.

Livermore, who came through Tottenham Hotspur’s Academy, was superb for Hull last season as they managed to stay in the top flight and also reach the FA Cup final.But his form has dipped in 2014-15 along with the rest of the Hull side, although he has still made 35 appearances for the club.

His one international appearance came in 2012, a 21-minute cameo as a second-half substitute for Frank Lampard in a friendly victory over Italy.

The Enfield-born midfielder spent six seasons at Spurs but made only 58 appearances, going out on loan to MK Dons, Crewe, Derby, Peterborough, Ipswich Town and Leeds United before moving to the KC, initially for his seventh loan spell, in August 2013. He signed on a long-term basis for a fee of £8 million a year later.





what an idiot but all clouds have silver linings so that probably guarantees we wont be signing him now ;)

Shit footballer anyways, just there to do Huddlestone's running.

Makes Djemba Djemba look like a cultured footballer.


Didn't he cost Hull about £8m?

If the Mutu case is anything to go by, and if Hull want to go that way....he has just monumentally **** up his life.

He should probably be fined and serve a suspension of some sort, but I wouldn't go as far as **** up his life for doing a line of cocaine.





Chelsea started to seek compensation from Mutu in early 2005.[10][12]The Football Association Premier League Appeals Committee decided that the player had committed a breach of his contract without just cause[10] which made Chelsea eligible to claim the compensation.[13] Mutu started his first appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) but the case was dismissed.[10] On 11 May 2006, Chelsea applied to FIFA for an award of compensation against Mutu. In particular, the club requested that the FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC) award compensation to the club following Mutu's breaching the employment contract without just cause.[10] However, on 26 October, the DRC decided that it did not have jurisdiction to make a decision in the dispute and that the claim by the club was therefore not admissible.[10] On 22 December, Chelsea lodged a new appeal before the CAS seeking the annulment of the DRC’s decision. On 21 May 2007, a CAS panel upheld the club’s appeal, set aside the DRC’s decision, and referred the matter back to the DRC, “which does have jurisdiction to determine and impose the appropriate sporting sanction and/or order for compensation, if any, arising out of the dispute” between the Club and the Player,"[10]

On 6 August 2007, on the basis of the Second CAS Award, Chelsea filed with the DRC a "Re-amended application for an award of compensation", seeking damages to be determined on the basis of various factors, "including the wasted costs of acquiring the Player (£13,814,000), the cost of replacing the Player (£22,661,641), the unearned portion of signing bonus (£44,000) and other benefits received by the Player from the Club (£3,128,566.03) as well as from his new club, Juventus (unknown), the substantial legal costs that the Club has been forced to incur (£391,049.03) and the unquantifiable but undeniable cost in playing terms and in terms of the Club’s commercial brand values", but "at least equivalent to the replacement cost of £22,661,641".[10] On 14 September, Mutu submitted to the DRC a brief requesting the rejection of Chelsea's plea, and asking FIFA to open an investigation against the club for having used and/or dealt with unlicensed agents.[10] But Mutu failed to suspend the arbitration and his claim for use of unlicensed agents was found not to be supported.

On 7 May 2008, the FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber ordered Mutu to pay €17,173,990 in compensation to his former club, Chelsea FC, for breach of contract.[14][15] This included €16,500,000 for the unamortised portion of the transfer fee paid to Parma, €307,340 for the unamortised portion of the sign-on fee (received by Mutu), and €366,650 for the unamortised portion of the fee to the Agent, but was not to take into account the determination of the damages for the amounts already paid by the club to the player (consideration for services rendered) or the remaining value of the employment contract (valued at €10,858,500). Mutu had to pay within 30 days after being informed of the decision in August 2008.[10] Mutu lodged an appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport for the second time,[16] but on 31 July 2009, that court dismissed his appeal,[14] and Mutu was ordered to pay Chelsea the amount plus interest of 5% p.a. starting on 12 September 2008 until the effective date of payment; the matter was be submitted to the FIFA Disciplinary Committee for its determination. In addition, Mutu had to pay the costs of arbitration for both parties, including CHF 50,000 to Chelsea.[10] The fine was the highest ever levied by FIFA.[17]

Mutu may be banned from football by FIFA if he does not pay,[18] although some lawyers have disputed this.[19] Mutu started his third appeal, this time to the Federal Supreme Court of Switzerland, in October 2009,[20] but on 14 June 2010 this appeal was also dismissed with Mutu again being ordered to pay Chelsea €17m in damages.[21][22] Mutu then submitted an appeal to European Court of Human Rights.

In 2013, FIFA DRC decided in a new ruling that Livorno and Juventus were also jointly liable to pay compensation; both clubs immediately appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.[23] On 21 January 2015 The Court of Arbitration for Sport annulled the FIFA DRC ruling; Mutu remained the sole party to pay the compensation.[24]

The only shocking thing about this is that he actually got caught and the club have admitted it. Must be so many footballers who use it every now and again.

To have used it was very stupid

To have used it at a time which meant it wouldn't have left his system before a test is career suicide

He's made an absolutely colossal mistake. He'll have to go move abroad if he wants to keep playing, and he epitomises a bang average English midfielder, which is exactly the type of player no club anywhere else in the world will want to sign, coupled with wage demands.

Hull could fine him too as stated before. If he wasn't so stupid you might consider feeling sorry for him.
