From bad to worse: first our sporting director Frank Arnesen is suspended over an apparently illegal approach for his services from Chelski (the six-figure fines over the Ashley Cole affair mean nothing to them), then we miss out on the lottery for a UEFA Cup place. It now looks like we’ll lose Arnesen who had the letter from Chelsea copied to him and it’s just a case of negotiating a package. Money seems to get around the rules.
Football imitates life, huh? Millions in the developing world know this unjust truth at much greater cost than those of us who follow football.
