Actually, JPBB, I have to disagree with you on this. For all that Levy does look at the big picture, he also very much has an eye for detail.Nothing escapes him. I suspect that he gave the issue of compensation at least some thought and that he concluded that to offer compensation would open a huge can of worms that could end up costing the club a lot of money - not just with regard to this case but for previous issues too and any that might occur in the future. He will not have wanted to set a precedent. He might well have weighed up the pros and cons and decided that, on balance, doing nothing was the least bad option. Obviously, though, that doesn't help the fans of either club that ended up out of pocket and greatly inconvenienced. And I fully understand their anger. I wonder whether Levy couldn't at least have made some kind of gesture 'without prejudice'.
