Former Portsmouth defender Sam Sodje and his brother Stephen plan to pursue legal action against the Fake Sheikh Mazher Mahmood. Investigative journalist Mahmood - who had worked for The Sun on Sunday newspaper - was convicted of perverting the course of justice this week.Sam Sodje was among 13 footballers arrested in 2013 for spotfixing following a sting by Mahmood before the case later collapsed due to a lack of evidence. In the aftermath of his arrest, Sodje claims both that his negotiations with Portsmouth over a new contract broke down and that he had to retire as he could not get a deal at another club.The 37-year-old and his sibling had been flown to Dubai believing they were travelling there to discuss a possible charity football match which would benefit their charity, the Sodje Foundation. Sodje played for a number of clubs, including Charlton, but claims he could not get another club after his arrest Sodje claims conversation turned to match fixing and Mahmood filmed him saying he had accepted a £70,000 payment to get deliberately sent off against Oldham.He punched opponent Jose Baxter twice in the groin during the fixture in February 2013 and was consequently dismissed five minutes into the second half of a 1-0 defeat at Boundary Park.Sam Sodje - who stopped playing the following summer - told Sky Sports News HQ: No amount of money you pay will give me back what Ive lost.Its not really about the money. Its about the principle. You cant just do that to people. Everything Ive worked as a young man - trying to be good to society and working really hard - he took everything away. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just ?£6.99. No contract. From the day this whole thing came out, that was the end of my career. I tried to stay positive and say Im a fighter but he ruined me. Life after football is tough and he made it 10 times worse for me.All I had - like every footballer - was my reputation and he killed it. Theres nothing I can do any more, he took everything away from me.The Crown Prosecution Service say they are reviewing 25 past convictions that were made using Mahmoods evidence.Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson and Pakistan international cricketer Mohammed Amir are two others who have also threatened to pursue legal action. Former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson (left) is another who has threatened to pursue legal action against Mahmood Stephen Sodje added: Everyone knows the Sodje family, everyone knows the Sodje brothers. Were very tight, weve been brought up together.Not only did it ruin our careers, it ruined our reputation in football. People started looking at us in a certain way.We werent able to do what we wanted to do with a football project because we lost all our sponsors. What [Mahmood] has been doing - or what he did to us - we want him to come out and admit to it.The word entrapment, a lot of people dont believe in it but its a massive word. We were completely set up. We were completely entrapped into a lifestyle which was unknown to us.You can watch Englands tour of Bangladesh, plus Premier League football and the Japan Grand Prix on Sky Sports.

According to a police report, Douglas is accused of grabbing his girlfriend by the neck and slamming her against the wall several times while he carried her from the elevator to their Hartford hotel room early Sunday morning.First base has always been a position for power hitters, the mashers who can provide home runs and RBI to anchor your fantasy team and the position will improve its depth with a couple of additions this season. The most notable is Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera, who moves across the infield now that Prince Fielder has moved on to Texas. No matter what position he plays, Cabrera is a top-tier hitter. Since 2007, he leads them majors with 261 home runs, 856 RBI and 706 runs scored, along with a .326 batting average. Leading all of baseball in those categories, with consistent production year after year, makes Cabrera the biggest difference-maker, even when compared with other sluggers at first base. Arizonas Paul Goldschmidt has quickly emerged as an elite option too, in part because he adds stolen bases to his impressive power numbers. Over the past two seasons, Goldschmidt has swiped 33 bases, most among first basemen, and is one of two (Edwin Encarnacion is the other) to record at least 50 homers and 200 RBI while scoring at least 180 runs. Unless your league has an on-base percentage as a category, there is a large gap between the value of Cincinnatis Joey Votto in real life (where hes MVP calibre) and in fantasy, where hes among the top handful at first base. Vottos tendency to walk limits his RBI upside, which is a factor in his fantasy appeal. When you move beyond the top handful of players, there are still plenty of appealing options. Baltimores Chris Davis has outrageous power. He also strikes out a lot, which slowed his arrival as an everyday player but, after 86 home runs and 368 strikeouts in the past two seasons, hes settled in with the Orioles. Two of the more interesting options at first base are long-time stars. Prince Fielder has had more than 100 RBI in six of the past seven seasons, but last years 25 home runs and .819 OPS were career-lows. Going to a hitter-friendly park in Texas does seem like a decent opportunity for Fielder to have a relative bounceback in his numbers. The other veteran, who has shown more decline, is Albert Pujols, who is coming off his worst season and is pretty much a wildcard for the first time in his career. If Pujols regains his form, even somewhat, then 30 home runs, 100 RBI and a .300 average is possible, particularly coming off a season in which his batting aaverage on balls in play was a career-low .dddddddddddd.258 (same as his average), but there is also the concern that a 34-year-old Pujols isnt going to ever have that legendary bat again. If youd rather avoid the risk of those veterans, Adrian Gonzalez is a steady enough performer and Freddie Freeman is a productive younger slugger who has driven in 203 runs over the past two seasons. Shifting to first base from catcher, Minnesotas Joe Mauer doesnt have the power of a typical top tier first baseman, but hes a career .323 hitter, so if he can stay in the lineup, Mauer will have an opportunity to make a difference in that way. Kansas Citys Eric Hosmer appeared to get back on the right track last season and San Franciscos Brandon Belt has continued to make progress. Both are young, with room to grow, so they offer worthwhile upside if you cant secure the best at the position. Upside comes further down the list too. Whether its White Sox rookie Jose Abreu, the Cuban slugger or across town with the Cubs Anthony Rizzo, who could be prime for big numbers with a little better luck (after a .258 BABIP in 2013). You probably wont have to pay premium prices for someone like Bostons Mike Napoli, even though hes hit at least 20 home runs in six straight seasons, and Oaklands Brandon Moss could be a nice source of mid-to-late round power after slugging 51 home runs in 711 at-bats over the past two seasons. St. Louis Matt Adams is a slugger on his way up and due for a full-time role this year after hitting 17 home runs in 296 at-bats last year. If you get desperate, maybe consider the Yankees Mark Teixeira, who may be ruined by a wrist injury, but has such a track record of putting up power numbers that hes worth a late-round look; certainly around the time that youre willing to venture down the road for Ryan Howard. Anyway, there are a lot of viable candidates to hold down first base for your team, but if your league incorporates corner infielders and DH spots, suddenly first base can thin out in short order, so dont wait too long. Take a good one relatively early, then worry about the upside/bounceback/sleeper options later. Scott Cullen can be reached at and followed on Twitter at For more, check out TSN Fantasy on Facebook.
