They are very tight-lipped about announcing the name of the accused. Gylfi Sigurdsson was caught in some kind of sexting-with-a-minor thing last year and his name never appeared in any club communications. The Everton board I frequent was warned not to allow his name to be used in any discussion of the allegations, or face defamation charges.

So we'll have to wait til the usual suspects come at it sideways.

Sort of surprised Reddit doesn’t have it pegged yet. I swear they knew about Gylfi before Gylfi did. Maybe that’s a lesson learned this time around.

Is it part of this that the UK has much stricter laws with their press on names being released before someone is convicted. Even if it's stupid with international outlets being able to say whatever they want.

Yes, and even publishing rumors (rumours) on social. Immediate ban from my Spurs board and I'm sure many others -- as the board become liable.
Along the lines of what is debated here re: 230

I'll say it. The rampant speculation is based on it being someone at Spurs or Arsenal because "North London" and off another report that it's not Spurs. Based on the late 20s Arsenal players of Xhaka, Partey and Elneny.

Partey is the one getting fingered at the moment. No blue check mark confirmations.

So the Telegraph said its a player in their late 20s, whos internationally known and going to the World Cup in 2022. That rules out Elneny, Egypt isnt going to the World Cup. Partey is presently in Germany. Xhaka is presently on holiday if his wife's instagram is to be believed.

The possibilities on Sp*rs would be Kane, Son, Davies and Dier, though I'm not sure the last 2 qualify as "internationally known".

That rules out Rob Base.

Son isn't in England to be arrested. Ben Davies is on his honeymoon in Italy and posted a pic today, probably in response to people thinking it was him. I wouldn't say Moura is "internationally known".
Kane was in New York at a golf tournament, at least he was earlier this weekend.

Well on the other London Teams:
Chelsea has a single 29 year old Hakim Ziyech
West Ham has 2: Lanzini and Areola neither is going to the WC
International players are often given a break before they have to return to training camps, so it could be almost any Premier league team. London is a popular place for 29 year old famous football players to hang out.

Furiously reviewing Liverpool’s roster…and there’s 1 29 year old: Alison.

Not sure how close to London he was vacationing yesterday….

Reddit seems convinced it’s Partey. There’s a tweet from yesterday where a guy says Partey won’t be playing for Arsenal this season, won’t say why, tells folks to watch the news tomorrow (today). Helluva coincidence if it’s not.

Did official word ever come about Gilfy? Is the only confirmation going to be a high profile player that doesn’t show up somewhere?

Sounds like the guardian (bad source admitted) is going to report that is happened in Spain when Partey was in Spain a week ago.

Arsenal message boards seem convinced it’s him.

Lanzini has an outside chance to make La Scaloneta (Argentina squad) with the expanded rosters. Set piece merchant and a nice attacking option to have in the back pocket.

A telegraph story is supposedly forthcoming about a second accuser.

I think it’s probably Partey. Arsenal could clear it up immediately by tweeting a pic of him training in Germany (I don’t think any pics floating around twitter of him training are reliable) and they haven’t.

Reddit says Ziyech has retired from international ball so not going to WC and twitter says that Ziyech lives in SW London, not N. London. There are also pictures today of him training (presumably today).

FWIW.

he actually un-retired this week.
All signs point towards Partey though
