    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!

    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.
