In the dugout....
Might be a chance for ten Haag to run his eye over some of the players tonight at rag trafford with a view to bringing a few in,they’d certainly do a hell of a lot better than the dross that was there ..

A little ammunition next time someone from the Independent or the Standard get clever about "sportswashing", or the golf for that matter.

"The UK-Russian newspaper proprietor Lord Evgeny Lebedev has joined the board of a non-profit enterprise created by the Saudi Government, holding his position alongside Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman – who, according to US intelligence services, personally approved the capturing and killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018.

The enterprise is called Hevolution – founded to research the science of anti-ageing, which is a preoccupation of many wealthy ‘philanthropists’."

The back drop of the swamp is because the first match of the tournament is there. Why is it not at Wembley? Did they think it would not sell out ? If so it is very poor from the organisers.

Wembleys been used for concerts etc.

The final rounds are at wembley, so probably letting the grass recover a little.

cheers. That's very clear.
But totally wrong.
All these types of clauses can be against PL/FA regulations (if those bodies so provide) and they may be unenforceable but they are not illegal, which means against the law.
See also UEFA regs.
Ferran Torres has a buyout clause with Barca of 1 billion euros.

My understanding is that "Buy Out" clauses are illegal in the UK (i.e. player buys out his own contract to leave). Probably the best recent example of this was Neymar from Barca to PSG. Legally he paid the £222M himself... that PSG had given him that money is irrelevant. This is what is mandatory in Spain.

A "Release" clause (i.e. buying club meets a certain contractually agreed selling price) is allowed.

The two types are completely different.
A buy-out of a contract can never be "illegal" particularly if mutually agreed.

In fact it's the other way round. You have the right, in law, under various conditions to buy out a contract. If you have a loan, you can pay that off. If you have a phone or Internet contract, the provider can force you to buy it out if you want to terminate early.

In football a player can buy out his contract if he meets certain criteria. Under 28, they can buy it out after 3 years. Over 28 it's after 2 years.
