It does take the p!ss that all proceedings against them automatically stop once the Russian gets his cheque book out - so far we've had:

 

-Arnesen poached from Spurs - £8m paid

-Mikel pinched from Man Utd - something like £12m? shelled out

-Tapping Leeds youngsters - £5m

 

The only team that refused to be bought was Arsenal over the Cole tapping, and the suspended points deduction they're carrying for that will never be invoked unless someone else refuses the bribe, or alternatively the FA decide to punish them anyway - they know the rules have been broken, so why not?

It's a pity Leeds aren't in a position to turn that down. It would have been nice to see them progress with the claims on principle alone but it won't happen.

 

And that is where the FA should be stepping in. Whether the Clubs rech agreement or not the FA should enforce its own rules regardless.

The joint statement said Chelsea had also agreed to conduct an internal review of policies and procedures regarding the recruitment of players; take steps to rectify any shortcomings; take appropriate action in relation to club personnel, including Premier League approved training, and develop a code of conduct.

Laughable really.

If the Premier League announced a new rule that any team found guilty of tapping up players would face automatic relegation to the Championship, the problem would be gone overnight.

 

The main problem is that the Premier League are spineless.

Same as the FA, and most football governing bodies. Ban someone for diving and they'll soon think twice about it. They never do though. Remember that £300 fine FIFA (or UEFA, can't remember) handed out for racial abuse? :lol:

..... or Aragones the Spanish national coach getting fined £2300 for calling Henry a blurpety blurp!

Ken Bates, 3rd August 2006:

 

Because of the financial strength of Chelsea's owner Roman Abramovich, financial punishments will make no difference to the club at all.

 

We feel deduction of points, banning of registration of new players and suspension from European competition would be more appropriate.

 

Sell-out \o/
