Looks like there could be some conflicts of interest that haven't been fully ascertained but I fully expect any wrongdoings to be swept under the carpet.

Slap on the wrist and asked very, very politely not to do it again.

i fully expect Boro to get enough points deducted to be relegated while everyone else gets off

Looks like the clubs themselves acted in good faith, but some unscupulous individuals (the report suggests the likes of Sam Alardyces son and Freddie Sheppards son) may have done something dodgy.

is this like the West Ham thing where the Fa have shitt themselves with regards a backlash from these club fans so will just give a piss poor fine then forget it?

I wouldn't say we are completely in the clear. I don't think the wording of all that I have read or heard has made it clear enough that Boro are not being accused of anything. Where mudslinging is concerned very few people emerge without dirt on them. I would feel aggrieved if Boro's name is mentioned in this enquiry only for them to be exonerated later. The damage has been done by then.

No. Not even that.

Instead of accusing them they are saying that these things are unresolved.

It's a bit of a cop out really.

Rain, the thing is that it's the transfer that is named and the club buying is the one named afterwards by the media.

so it really is much ado about nothing?

It's probably a bit more like Macbeth.

What Captain said.

THe Media sensationalise it by naming the clubs who bought the player, convieniently forgetting to mention in the headline that there is no suggestion of the club doing any thing wrong.

I would bet (if i was a betting man) that if any of the other 'big' clubs had been mentioned in the reporteg Manure,then the media,in particular Sky,would be reporting the story with a different slant

ye the report appears to say not a lot really, there needs to be a lot more investigating before anyones going to be proven of anything and if the next report takes as long as this then it won't be until at least next summer.

All this report proves is that football agents are the scourge of modern football. They should be hounded out, the underhand basstards
