The Onion Bag: Sacha Baron Cohen's Grimsby Upset and Mesut Ozil's Generosity

Ryan Bailey@ryanjaybaileyFeatured ColumnistJuly 17, 2014

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

We kick off today with news of Sacha Baron Cohen's latest film project, in which he plays a Grimsby-supporting football hooligan. The portrayal of the port-side town, however, has some people up in arms.

Next, we check in with Blackpool, who still only have eight players in their threadbare squad.

And finally, we salute Mesut Ozil, who has made some very generous donations to help ill children in Brazil.
