Welcome to the latest edition of The Onion Bag, your primary source for weird and wonderful football news.

We kick off today with news that a popular bookmaker has refunded all punters who backed Manchester United to win the title this season—to the tune of £200,000, as per Betfred's official Twitter account.

Next, we catch up with West Ham fan Keira Knightley, who is a big fan of a certain Sky Sports pundit.

Finally, we're in Mexico, where a team have protested against unpaid wages with an unusual paper bag stunt, as per Inside World Football.
