FIFA pass the buck over Tevez deal

Personally I think FIFA were right not to decide on this - where they were wrong was to pass it to the Court of Arbitration.

They should have said to the Premier League - you allowed this problem to occur, you bloody sort it.

Totally agree mate! If they'd have showed some bottle in the first place it'd never gone this far. If company's owned players who know's wehre it would end, although I have a sneaking feeliong Beckham and Ballack have alot more to do with Addidas than meets the eye icon_wink.gif

True but can you also imagine the fun we would have rading Dorset's daily posts defending our position!

I would've helped Dorset defend us buying Tevez...

In my defence, I?ve always maintained that not getting involved with Joorabchian was good, but allowing United a free path to sign Tevez was bad, purely from the point of view that a little competition would have been healthy and might have kept a few people ?honest? and irrespective of the fact that I have always been a Tevez fan. There is still an awful lot to be resolved in this matter and I wasn?t going to pursue it, for fear of the very comments Loz referred to, and the fact that continuance of the whole saga seemed to be a pretty pointless exercise from a Chelsea fan?s standpoint. However, there is so much misrepresentation floating around that maybe the remnants of this sorry affair do need a bit of an airing. Here goes?

For arguments sake, let?s start by assuming Chelsea wanted Tevez and the third party ownership issue was the only factor stopping a bid being made - not an unreasonable assumption bearing in mind Tevez?s ability and a dearth of available striker talent of his age that could be described as world class. So, Chelsea decide to keep their powder dry, anticipating a ruling being made from someone in authority at some stage, whereas United jump in with both feet and are eager to sign a loan deal that doesn?t even try to resolve the third party issue. My first question is why, even after all these weeks of wrangling, Interpol involvement and Premier League meetings, does David Gill persist in putting forward a deal that only serves to perpetuate the Joorabchian influence and stigma?

Answer - there appears to be no other interest in the player and, given a free rein, he can sup with the Devil so to speak and promote the ?willing seller, willing buyer? line to his heart?s content. The first opportunity to sort out the mess comes along (FIFA - yes, I know, but who else was there?) and, whilst their decision duck shoves everything to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, at least the expectation is that the REAL problem (third party ownership) will get sorted.

The EPL and WHU welcome the decision but, surprise, surprise, MU and Joorabchian don?t - the agent gets panicky and serves a writ in an effort to secure a payout for himself before it?s too late. He cites the hope of reaching a speedy conclusion as his reason for High Court action, but in reality it is indecent haste brought about by the prospect of a CAS ruling that might end the mucky two year loan deal with the option of a further three and, possibly, end MU?s support for his status in the matter.

Therefore, my second question is why doesn?t Joorabchian prefer an extension of the ?willing seller, willing buyer? arrangement that sees Tevez sold outright and MU?s ?30m+ lodged with arbitrators (CAS) until the rightful cash recipients can be agreed upon. That way Tevez could play for United straightaway and the only delay would revolve around whether or not Joorabchian needs his court action (when or if he failed to win the day on the CAS ruling) against WHU.

Answer - no idea, but maybe Interpol are closing in fast or maybe the Premier League?s calmness under initial fire has got him rattled. Whatever it is, Joorabchian feels he can?t wait any longer and the thought of him winning his court case must send shivers down the Premier League spine. If that happens their credibility will be shot to pieces, WHU will face massive damages and Chelsea will still be none the wiser when it comes to the authenticity of third party ownership. The only winners will be MU and Kia Joorabchian and that can?t be right, can it?
