TBH, the concept smacks of over the top and unrealistic paranoia.

It's all a bit over my head to be honest.

I still don't understand why the FA would want Man U to win a competition they don't get any money from. Why would they go to all the trouble of bribing their officials to manipulate a rival competition when they don't receive any reward.

They'd be risking imprisonment for nothing and somehow conspiring to keep it quiet amongst hundreds of people (all of whom would be pissed off because they're taking risk without getting paid).

The FA & officials would take all of the risk, yet when the TV deals come along the Premier League would get all of the money.

Where's the motive? People that commit crime want to profit and this would be fraud on a huge scale.

He was just a total wind up merchant though, not a real conspiracist, it was obvious from his answers when give scientific proof, hed still just stay prove it or just say everybody is lieing ...

absolutely

the major reason i want VAR really, in theory it should be harder to justify dodgy calls

also the reason i think the new pen rules are good, ie accidental or not, if it touches the arm/hand it's a pen, unfortunately we are going to see attackers fishing for it but at least thats a large chuck of subjectivity out of the window

for me the premiership has a credibility issue and the fact they've dragged on with bringing in these changes is quite telling imho

the more money in something the higher probability of corruption.. take politics for example, of course power is attractive but it's scary how many of them end up become multimillionaires after getting into office
