    And of course the fee is quoted as 65 million pounds instead of euros.

    Expect the talking point to be... Why are we helping them foreigners when there are clubs in crisis here

    Although I do love this club, in this instance we actually had nothing to do with it. For a change it's FIFA who should get the credit

    But the point is that the money filters down and benefits clubs at lower tiers.

    We certainly don't care about a 5th tier French club, but they benefit from our ability to spend.

    It's the opposite of ruining football.

    You could say it's UEFA not doing enough like this and football agents skimming as much of the money as they can get their hands on that's ruining football. Also clubs just being plain greedy with their asking prices when they know a player wants to leave.

    I don't mind FICKFUFA getting the credit, just as long as they don't get the money!
