The Onion Bag: A Louis Van Gaal Identity Error and an Epic Pitch Invasion Fail

Ryan BaileyFeatured Columnist IVOctober 9, 2016

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

The final day of the Championship season brought plenty of late drama, with Birmingham escaping relegation and Brighton earning a play-off place with last-minute goals. Reading fans didn't get the memo about the Seagulls' effort, meaning they staged an accidental celebratory pitch invasion

Next, we head to Italy where a Guardian journalist's comments have caused a bit of a furore—and a dig at Geordie Shore.

Finally, somebody needs to tell Australian newspaper MX that Louis van Gaal and Harold Bishop are not the same person.
