Absolutely. These people must live in a bubble not of this world and believe they can fool us all.

 

I'm not saying a word.

 

Innocent until proven guilty as always!

In fairness Ronnie, both he and Blatter where found guilty of conflicts of interests and regulation beaches, which is why they both got lengthy bans from any football related activities

As so often, this is a slightly misleading headline. According to a full report on the CNN website:

 

Quote

He has been brought in for questioning but has not been arrested or charged with a crime ...

Fair point mrboj....question is where this leaves the 2022 World Cup.

from the start I always supported the idea of cancelling Euro 2018 in Russia and 2022 World cup in Qatar.... Russia was awarded the Euro due to all the cheating/racketing/extortion, etc.,,, Qatar should be removed as a host and they should have looked into alternatives. Qatar hosting the World cup in Summer time with temperatures reaching 45-50 degrees Celsius, Qatar is not a football enthusiastic as much as other countries they were competing with.... quote from https://www.hrw.org/news/2019/03/14 .......Eight years after it won the bid to host the World Cup, Qatar’s human rights record is still of concern.

He may have been a magic gloden boy in his era...but now, he is nothing more then a common criminal with his cronies Sepp Blatter and Co....

.......Football has become a disgusting mafia modeled business (like many other sports).....but apparently as long as the stars score goals, the masses who feed the stadium frenzy, just do not care....

Then a global boycott should work. If only 4 countries shows up there will not be much of a world cup.

Only a matter of time before it caught up with Monsieur Platini .. 

Too late to call off 2022 in Qatar however bent and skewed the bidding process and subsequent awarding of the tournament was .. It takes years for a country to prep' once they've been awarded ..

Footie Nuts Brazil kicked off the 2014 tournament with the cement still wet and paint still drying on some of their stadiums .. and they had near 7 yrs notice after the award .. 

Reality is it has to be accepted that it will be held in Qatar like it or not ..
