    Other sources say 45k a month which seems a lot more reasonable.

    I wonder what would happen if we refuse to accept Marseille's offers of compensation?

    I'd imagine any amount will be set by FIFA no?

    Suspended until the end of the season (well four months) and a two window ban for Marseille.

    Yes, it's all very bizarre. I don't actually think we've done anything wrong for once!

    When you chuck as much **** at the wall as we do some of it will eventually stick.

    2.5m euro compensation apparently to us as well.

    Apparently we’re appealing to CAS (?) because we want more, though.

  13. Gino and Scott do business properly.
    Certainly all the 25% non-Mogi business anyway.

    €10m it sounds like. Probably to use for the upcoming Bayat case!

    Could WFC be the first net carbon and net fine zero club?

    OM fans have redesigned our badge. Shame they didn't do this a couple of years ago for the competition. It would have been a clear winner.


    Also they played us in a computer game

    Sadly for them, FIFA awarded Watford a 3-0 win as they fielded an ineligible player. :D

    I bet Boris and P Andrew reading this wish they could say the same thing as you have!

  19. Did Gueye swap sides at half time ?
  20. Burnsy

    His 4 months ban has been put on hold whilst Marseille appeal to CAS.

    He’s free to play again.
  21. So can he play on Friday or not ?

    Looks like CAS haven’t suspended Marseille’s pins home to though, just Gueye’s personal ban.

    We could ask Marseille to pay our outstanding instalment to Rennes. That’ll save the extra postage

    He should have just gone on loan for a year.
  28. Wow. Pretty hard on Marseille.
    So we were 100% in the right all along ? Presume the radio silence up to now was partly to avoid compromising our position ?
    Gino & Scott DO do business properly :)

    I suppose this arrangement makes Gueye the best value transfer we ever made, from a pure profit perspective. All the upside of the transfer fee, zero wages paid.

    Wonder if Gueye will try to sue his agent?

    Wonder how much we're talking here? Enough to pay for Danny Rose's severance or enough to pay his lunch bill?

    To be perfectly honest, I think it would be incredibly easy to give some kind of comment on an ongoing issue like this over the course of two years without doing something that would 'compromise our position', especially since our position was 'this happened to us and we didn't want it to'. That is part of what a club's legal department is for, presumably. It's no less of a purposeful choice, and that's a very common 'get out' excuse for it in these kinds of situations, but it doesn't actually mean much, in practice.
  32. Sort of OK

    Well. I wasn't expecting that.

    Although I am generally a positive sort of chap I had naturally assumed we'd done something wrong here, got him to sign under duress, dodgy agent or the like but apparently not. Who'd have thought that?

    So rather than banning him for four months maybe we should get him to play for the club he did legally sign for, play the balance of the season for us, keep us up there's a few quid in it for him and we'll give him a reference next time he needs, stays fit for next season (barring a career ending injury) for OM, everyone's a winner. This does assume he's any good though, if he's not then **** him.

    Imagine the level of performance if we forced him to play the season out for us. It would make Tufan look committed in comparison.
