There will be no Champions league or Europa league next season.
When are people going to wake up to the fact that thousands are dying and that the world will be a different place, if and when we ever get to any normality
Overseas travel will be curtailed throughout the world for many months, countries will not allow visitors from any country that has not been cleared of the epidemic
Normality will not be resumed until a vaccine has been found and everyone has been inoculated
Not strictly true.

Manchester City believe Arsenal are behind the plot to have their European ban upheld if the COVID-19 crisis prevents an appeal. Arsenal will inform Manchester City that their information is false if the Etihad club contact them directly about the matter

City officials have information from trusted sources that the move was instigated by Arsenal – and are angry that Liverpool joined Man United, Chelsea, Leicester, Wolves and Burnley in an attempt to pressure CAS. Arsenal refused to comment on the suggestion

@MirrorFootball

Probably john cross so might not be true
And Raheem Sterling is off to Arsenal

Well apart from getting beat at Wembley by Wigan.
Interesting bit of news that you may not be aware off, but Dave Whelan broke his leg in an FA Cup Final.Not a lot of people know about that.
Pity the old bastard didn't break his vocal chords - he wouldn't have been able to tell us so frequently. Thank the Lord Twitter and the Devil's social media weren't available when he suffered the snap!

It's deemed fair by the European Commission, but they're just the EU version of our Civil Service. The EU Commission backed UEFA over Bosman, but when the case was appealed all the way to the European Court of Justice, the ECJ found in favour of Bosman.

Essentially, the ECJ told the European Commission, EU Law had nothing to do with them, & to stay out of it. Whether the UK is in Europe or not, we're about to find out that dealing with Europe has to be on their terms, otherwise we can feel free to create a UK Champions League of our own, with Bangor City, & Queen of the South et al.
The UK's realationship with the EU has nothing at all to do with this matter. TfEU was in no way a European imposition but is rather a statement of commercial law as it existed in western European capitalist, free market economies at the time. Ever since 1945 at least every free economy in Europe has seen investment and competition as the only way to reconstruction and prosperity. British airlines were fined massively for acting as a cartel to force Freddy Laker out of business in the 1960s and attempts to prevent investment have always been illegal. TfEU simply stated clearly and unambiguously that these anti competitive practices were, as they had been for many years, unlawful throughout the EU, including those new members from the old Soviet bloc. The ECJ will be no more sympathetic to UEFA and the cartel than our courts, or vice versa after this year.

It boils down to the simple fact that we can buy top drawer players, which we couldn't previously do.
The cartel are angry that they have real competition now for those players and feel that they alone are entitled to buy them.

Remember when Real Madrid were in the galactico stage? No-one seemed to give a fuck about ruining football at that time.

Ii is not just us. They want to stop others following our example.
