      Yep. We were definitely one of the ringleaders in this, especially within the English teams.

      My impression is that this is being led by Real and Barce who are in dire financial straits. The number of times Perez mentioned it was necessary to ‘save’ football gives cause to think what he really meant was saving Real and Barce from financial oblivion.

      Yanks, never being ones to miss out on a good plot to gain a stranglehold on the wealth of the game (or world or really anything else), jumped on the bandwagon.

      I didn’t enjoy the competition being held there if that’s what you’re asking me.

      How do you feel about Qatar hosting the WC?

      Im happy that Qatar has the opportunity to host the WC, the first Arab,Muslim country to do so...I’m also happy that the spotlight will be put on the rights of immigrant workers and the abuses they suffer on a daily basis in the Gulf states..

      I’m also happy Qatar will have the opportunity to bring in reforms which are part of being a WC host, I’m genuinely happy to see football help bring in these reforms..

      Whats your reason for being anti Qatari WC host...?

      Each of the 'big 6' fined £3.67m, total of £22m by the EPL. Apparently FSG to pay and not the club, any further plan to set up a non-affiliated competition will incur a 30pt deduction and a £25m fine per team.

      The punishments were a gesture of good will by the Clubs, looks like a piss take, and possibly a lucky escape.

      Think you're right, sounds like the end of it now but certainly won't be forgotten.

      An immediate 30 point deduction, would have really f**ked the season up . Lucky escape perhaps.

      There's no way they would have handed out that type of punishment this time around. This was their "warning" and then if it happens again they can then do the points deduction (assuming legally they are able to).

      I use the term apparently loosely.
