      Go figure the one team that benefits the most out of this sh*t show is United with Woodward leaving. WTF.

      He was already due to leave soon enough

      No mate I fully expect us to be the ones left holding the baby and to get the full lash of this

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

      Pep is part of the problem with today's football, enabled by UEFA and FIFA turning a blind eye to his spending, of course.

      I wouldn't say Pep is part of the problem.  City could have any manager and would still happily buy their success 🤣

      Maybe it’s your xenophobia disguised as a champion of human rights that’s stopping you supporting the WC in Qatar...

      It’s not a disguise of anything and making such an accusation is very slanderous actually.

      Branding someone xenophobic because they want a country stripped of hosting power due to their human rights issues tells me what sort of person you are anyways.

      Maybe you are disguising your own insecurities with such an idiotic argument.

      You follow the wrong sport if you expect owners not to be in it to increase their wealth. Maybe try cricket? WNBA?

      When FSG sell Liverpool the next big guy will come in with the exact same view: an investment.



      it depends who the new owners are. I read a great article on BBC couple of years ago, explaining why some billionaire are buying known clubs. There are several reasons for that. First and foremost is the publicity, and somekind of protection. Lets say putin decided he wanted to take all of abromovichs assets in russia. Everybody now knows who that abromovich is, there will be genuine interest from locals and the western media will keep focusing on that news because people will read it. If not for chelsea, then he is another russian and the media will go away because the interest will fade away. The same goes for the arabs, if the royal family gangs up then you are in trouble down there. The other thing is football superstars that you own, can be your influencers for your other ventures.

      These clubs are never meant to make money for their owners. They are meant to be in the spotlight, and i personally think that suits us better. How isnt this whole fiasco not sucking the soul of the club but a arab billionaire will do when he spends his money to have us compete for everything?

      What an absolute f**king shambles.
      If the owners sat round a table and tried to find the best way to shoot themselves in both feet, they could not have come up with a better plan.
      But are teams having to pay a fee to use an ejector seat? That must be the ultimate kick in the balls - after doing this purely to make money, they loose some in the process. Along with any credit they had in the bank with fans.
      They might be rich, but they are f**king halfwits.

      Us, United and Arsenal were the ringleaders . . . now United's vice chairman has thrown his toys out of the pram because he can't get his pay check.  We all know Arsenal chomped at the bit for this opportunity because our league is too strong for their current squad to reach the Europa League, never mind the Champions League!!!   I agree with others on here in saying that we will be the last team to release a statement, leading to us getting the blame as being the main ringleaders.

      How vocal have you been in supporting the immigrant workers in Qatar before they were voted as the next destination for the WC...?

      Changing your argument because you know you’ve lost. Always an amusing sight and usually a sign of ignorance.

      Do you think Qatar should be allowed to host the World Cup? If we’re to revert to the original argument.....

      I wouldn't normally quote Winston Churchill but he did say 'you can always rely on Americans to do the right thing,  after they have explored every other possibility ' here's hoping.

      Not arsed, nothing I can do personally to change the hosts. If we're talking human rights should Russia have held the WC. Argentina literally held the competition in 78 which propped up a dictatorship which murdered thousands, so nothing's really changed.

      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.

      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.

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