Any time Bayat spends away from us is a good thing.
I like this part
President Kita’s Wikipedia page has him described as:
He's only gone and done it again.
I hope some of you are suitably embarrassed tonight for vilifying such an upstanding individual that does so much for our club.
I know you are excited and like to go on vendetta laps after every win, but take a look at yourself if you are actually cheerleading Bayat. Hopefully you are joking.
Oh Jesus you thought this was serious hahahaha
I really tried to make it as obvious as possible with the 'upstanding individual' bit, but apparently not obvious enough for some...
Dunno mate. Some of your posts over last 2 months I simply don’t know anymore. At least we are agreed Bayat is a plague on our club and Pozzo should have no business with him.
Knew you couldn't resist unblocking btw, missed you babe x
Winner scored by a Mogi punt, after a colossus display by Kambaye. The man is a WFC hero.
I don't want to talk about the legal side of things here, but we all know he has a court case next year. What worries me is any negative impact it could have on us as a club? I'm talking about being heavily fined for something perhaps? If that's the case we could be in serious trouble.
We'll have Kavanagh QC so it'll be fine!
Worrying if true.
Wasn't he last night's ref?
So that was his gavel was it?!
Nothing to see here…
Read the entire thread.
Twitter keeps asking me to login which covers the tweets, can anyone post images of it here please?
It's interesting for sure but putting a sceptical hat on I'm not sure what this really proves. I'd already priced in that Bayat's links with Pozzo were likely to come from mutual acquaintances and business interests - it's the only way the shovelling of cash in his direction in recent seasons makes sense.
Knowing our luck after Mogi’s court appearance in 2023 we will find out we are intrinsically linked to all this and start next season with one of those comedy 30 point reductions after the EFL have a sniff around.
Reckon people will still defend the way we are run even if that happens!
Nobody are shocked are they, what a tangled web.
Is he involved in this sorry tragic saga at all or is this more from Cardiff's end and the agents they used?
From what I understand the saga had little to do with Bayat.
Nantes sold Sala. Cardiff got him a ticket on a commercial flight. Sala wanted to stay to say goodbye to friends and team mates so asked to be booked on a later plane. The person who brokered the transfer paid a trained pilot to collect him. That pilot couldn't do it, so asked a gas fitter who did not have a licence to take paid passengers, or fly in the dark, to pick him up. On the way to France, the plane made a large banging noise, there was a haziness in the cockpit and various people commented that the plane was falling apart, but he went ahead with the return flight anyway.
So very little to do with Bayat. But there have been some questions about whether the transfer fee received was funnelled through offshore jurisdictions:
"Nice insist that that particular deal took place 100% within FIFA rules, but Cardiff’s lawyer, Ma*tre Antoine Vey, asserted last July that he suspects Nantes of money laundering, tax fraud and money laundering large-scale capital and cash payments. It is believed that the €17m does not correspond at all to the actual transfer fee but a price negotiated between several dubious intermediaries who have helped themselves in the process, by operating through subsidiaries in Panama or through direct cash payments in order to hide the illegality." https://www.getfootballnewsfrance.c...tre-as-part-of-investigation-into-mogi-bayat/
Yes basically sounds like they all knew the plane was dodgy but as you say carried on with the flight leading this tragic event .
Pretty shameful from a lot involved and a young life lost in all of this .
Read the main agent involved was Willie McKay who has a suspect reputation.
