BRUTAL JUSTICE COMING – BUT IS IT ENOUGH?

by .

The Premier League moved with brutal force on beleaguered Everton over their breach of profit and sustainability. Sean Dyche sees his team drop into the bottom two after an 10-point deduction. They’ll appeal the case, but it seems pretty cut and shut, the points deduction will stick.

Now, remember I told you about 6 months ago the Arsenal strategy was to be ready when something bad might happen to Manchester City?

Well, stories are now dropping in The Daily Mail that both Chelsea AND City could face relegation if they are found guilty on the charges leveled against them.

That would be a wow moment, but we are entering extremely dicey territory in elite-level sport where entities with the power of nations are imposing their will on our beautiful sport, and the output has been debilitating unfairness.

There are stories doing the rounds that Eden Hazard had his move to Arsenal canceled because Chelsea gave his agent £7m. Was that move the difference between Arsenal going on the same run of dominance as them and not? Highly doubtful. But hard to imagine a world where Eden Hazard in the system wouldn’t have helped. Even the knock on effects – who is banging the door of Arsenal to play with Gervinho? What was the cost of us not having a superstar like Hazard in the ranks?

Why do I raise this point? Because cheating the system won certain clubs’ mega trophies. It made clubs that stuck by the rules look like chumps. It lost people jobs.

Is simply relegating clubs enough here? Do Olympic gold medalists keep their golds if they are caught with an ice cream van full of PEDs?

This is a question for The Premier League.

If cheating for sustained periods of time can allow you to accrue a mass of trophies, plaudits, and money… and the punishment when you get caught after 12 years is relegation. Is that enough?

The cost of two seasons out of Champions League can be absorbed by nation states. Relegation is making anyone at the top end go bankrupt and have to sell up. It’s a mere annoyance.

The biggest companies in the world bake the fines they get from regulators into their business models. A billion-dollar fine for bleeding an industry dry and killing competition doesn’t touch the sides if the profit you accrued during that period is 20x the fine.

If the punishment for cheating lacks bite, guess what, everyone will cheat. There are plenty of experts saying the Chelsea strategy is exactly that… take the fine and the smacked wrists because the progress on the pitch will be worth it.

The telegraphing of these punishments also gives the said clubs the opportunity to strategise around their escape. Lots of players will have relegation clauses. You’re not going to get the greatest players/coaches in the world slumming it in the Championship, but if you have the time, you. could sign all the best young players in the league, use the Championship to get them up to speed, then hit the Premier League with force the next season.

Football is at a weird tipping point. You have nations moving in on the game. We have toothless regulators. Fancy lawyers filibustering cases. The rulebreaking is happening at such a pace no one can keep up. Is this going to be good for the sport long term? Will anyone care? Are we fine with the doping of the game? Will fans enjoy it as long as the best players line up in their club colors?

Always remember: City fans held up a banner and sang songs about their beastly lawyer.

I can’t think of a parallel in history. Everything is entertainment these days. The illusion of fairness might be all we need to be satisfied because we’re fat and happy on a diet of mega transfers and investment in a game that is so far ahead of every other league I don’t think we’ll ever see a cycle of dominance outside England.

Back to Arsenal.

The strategy of wait for those above you to fail is looking more and more like it was a very smart move.

We aged down this summer.

We’re working on our craft this season.

These young men are learning how to manage Europe and the Premier League at the same time.

In the next two years, something brutal is going to happen that will shake the league, then we’ll be ready to bang.

Quite exciting.

Ok, see you in the comments. x

WW1 on the agenda. Cheerful.

Germany actually lost over 2m men. Interesting that the angst and humiliation of war loss drove them towards a second war whereas within the alllies the zeitgeist of never again hampered defence spending and created a strong aversion to war

Markymark

GOH – British Tommy’s were more willing to march across no man’s land under machine gun fire , than you are willing to write anything and I mean literally anything positive about Arsenal

Siddeeq

@Markymark, you forgot to include Louis Mountbattens stats

Olatunde

Chelsea paying 7m to hazard’s agent is equivalent of paying 20m to Rice’s agent by City. What chance would Arteta have had to make the transfer happen? You can imagine how Arteta will feel when some ignorants who pride themselves as fans starts accusing him of failure to make the deal happen. One of such idiots said it on here two years ago that Arteta is far better than than Wenger. Two years gone with the ground a bit level, VAR and money to boot, he is still struggling. Wenger faced lot worse. No backing of the fans, or media.… Read more »

“Germany actually lost over 2m men. Interesting that the angst and humiliation of war loss drove them towards a second war whereas within the alllies the zeitgeist of never again hampered defence spending and created a strong aversion to war” Amazing what one charismatic leader can achieve with his ramblings. A thousand year Reich spanning across whole of Europe and Russia only fell short some 9960years off the mark. If only he could’ve laid off Russia, and if Japan stayed away from Pearl Harbor, we could’ve been watching Arsenal playing in the Bundesliga where refs are unbiased and VAR works… Read more »

Madhu

Rich I meant equal as people and it’s not socialism. I never meant the social or economic status. Iam a product of capitalism that allowed me to get out of my country and travel. Through those travels all I have understood is that all of us want to do well for our families and lead a peaceful life where we are not judges by our colour, sexual .preferences, race, religion etc. equality is through services beacuse they belong to a certain kind. That’s all I am asking. It’s not about economic equality or anything else. That surely can be achieved… Read more »

Madhu

*Equality means not denying service to people of certain kind.

Bilbo

Whatever the Indian, UK, German or US losses during WWII, they paled into comparison with that of Russia.

X haka

That surely can be achieved through a democratic system.

Israel is the only democracy in the ME.

Maybe the Hamas barbarians and its acolytes should try it instead of butchering people, including innocent Thai’s with garden hoes.

Bilbo

And Madhu, before you get all Gandhi on us: the world’s positioning on him is changing. He said v similar things to Churchill about the peoples of S Africa and especially it’s indigenous population, endorsing the apartheid. He also slept naked with his niece when he was 78 to ‘test his celibacy’.

Bilbo

Marky, the Germans lost like 5-6m. Russia – 27 million. Madness.

Madhu

Bilbo you are spouting the oft repeated canards about Gandhi. If you want to believe that it’s your prerogative. Iam not here to change your opinion. The fact remains that he was an apostle of non violence in a world dominated by blood thirty so called leaders. You believe what you want to.

Madhu

By the way Bilbo all that is clearly written by the man himself there is no secrecy there along with reasons. His views on South Africa changed to an extent that Nelson Mandela and rest of SA still respect him. His body of work in SA as a lawyer and social activist is well documented.

Bilbo

Madhu, until we stop cherry picking anecdotes of our former leaders, we can’t properly establish their legacy and understand how to do more of the good stuff and less of the bad in the future. The cycle continues.

The good thing is lots of these things are published and attributed and so those with an open mind can look at each and every person on their merit, warts and all.

Bilbo

I also am not here to change your opinion either. I would have preferred it if, when sharing yours though, you could acknowledge the potential blind spots, the nuances and challenges elsewhere that you choose to ignore.

You mentioned Churchill: a complex man, driven by some deeply questionable views at times – especially in his early years – who, ultimately, offered exactly what Great Britain needed at their moment of greatest need. See, it’s not necessarily all black and white, is it?

Siddeeq

Racist criminals are now refered as ‘complex men’. The world is healing indeed.

Madhu

Bilbo that’s exactly what I mentioned. For some are terrorists to others they are not. The problem is that everything is seen through west’s eyes and the rest of the world will have to go along as the west have been powerful all along.

Bilbo

Churchill as a complex man. Gandhi an apostle of non-violence.

Gandhi’s best moment was as he touched down in the UK and the press asked him what he thought about ‘western civilization’. His response: it’s a good idea.

Banter.

Bilbo

Can’t disagree there Madhu

Madhu

Bilbo there are a lot of things that I don’t agree with Gandhi but he led us to freedom on a plank of civil disobedience and fought all along for a secular country. I would only imagine what would we have been to the western world if our freedom was achieved through blood bath.

Markymark

The difference between Germany and Britain pre outbreak of war.
A perplexed Adolph asked our Foreign secretary “why don’t tut shoot Ghandi? “
well I guess it was one way of dealing with an issue.

I didn’t watch the game last night obviously but saw that Southgate started with Henderson in the middle of the park. What can you say about that? No imagination, for one.

Such a dour coach. Honestly give Wenger a call and see if he fancies taking over for the Euros. With the amount of attacking talent England has, it could be the dream ticket!

Bilbo

Ahhh Madhu, you just can’t leave it, can you? If Gandhi fought for a secular country then Modi is the anti-Gandhi

Rich

Madhu Soon India will have a choice, go along with the Chinese + Russians and join BRICS… Or join the New American system. Granted that neither seem at all appealing… And it’s much like being stuck between a rock and a hard place.. Sadly… If I were placing a bet, I’d back the Chinese + Russians to come out victorious… Because they’re not driven by ideology in the same way that we are in the west… They’re not restricted by human constructs like morality, ethics, and values… And instead can be solely driven by getting the desired results, accepting that… Read more »

Bilbo

Rich, you lost me at they (Russia and China) are not driven by ideology. Plus, I think you’re completely overestimating the Russian stance here – their attack on Ukraine is a Cuban Missile Crisis Mk II and has completely shown their inability to think strategically and evaluate their own position. The echoes are uncanny and, in this respect, perhaps we can learn something from JFK: let cool heads prevail and think through the prism of whether any event is a political or strategic risk, knowing the appropriate reactions are fundamentally different, rather than getting caught up in all the bluster… Read more »

If we let Kiwior go in January, as some tabloid are suggesting, then I’ll be so dissapointed. This guy should and will take Gabriel space in no time. He’s that good.

Chitrak

Completely agree with Bilbo here, we shouldn’t be cherry picking facts. Gandhi had said appalling things about the blacks of South Africa and also slept naked with cousins to test “celibacy”. But the crimes does pale in comparison with the thousands Britishers killed in that timescale, that too only in India. His idea of peaceful civil disobedience is used worldwide. In that way, he is such an important messenger for peace. Unfortunately, we have not followed on her teachings

Mental experiment, if Hamas were given free rein to take over Israel government tomorrow, what kind of policies do you think they would enact?

Would they set up a beautiful state of Palestine that respects the rights of different religions and peoples?

Or would they commit genocide against the Jews?

Anyone who doesn’t think the latter hasn’t been paying attention

What are Palestines being killed in west Bank? More than 200 in the recent past. What is that for? Anyways Gazans are considered as animals and a front for Hamas. Anyways world has given free pass to Israel to raze Gaza.

Israelis should ditch Netanyahu, and get someone more moderate who wants peace instead of security as his mantra Gazans should have other options aside from Hamas. If Israel releases their stronghold on Gaza, the anger of Hamas would not be given such support. Other parties might stand a chance to take over, and work towards peace. Israel should loosen its dependence on USA and Europe and work towards becoming part of the region, and build as much ties it can with its neighboring arab countries. USA does not want peace in the area. They need Israel to fight these battles… Read more »

“Israelis should ditch Netanyahu, and get someone more moderate”

This is my problem with left liberals. You will always find them blaming leaders who are tough on terrorism but not a squeak against terrorist organisations like Hamas. I hope and pray that Natenhayu absolutely obliterates Hamas.

TR7

What happened on October 7 is absolutely abominable and any self respecting sovereign country should have the right to take revenge. Leaders of Hamas have repeatedly said they would do October 7 again and again if they could.

Hamas = ISIS

TR7

By the way the Arab world by and large have no sympathy for people living in Gaza. None of them have opened their borders for the people of Gaza. All they have is this entrenched hatred for a Jew country. They would put Hitler to shame if they were given a free run to demolish Israel. Thankfully most of the civilized countries support Israel.

“Literally try having your house and land taken away which you’ve rightfully owned by someone claiming some sort of deal granted by god 2000 years previously.”

Israel and Yasir Arafat had a peace deal agreed between them, Arafat chickened out at the last moment. More than their own land and house it seems like they want a Jewish country to be obliterated. From the river to the sea slogan says it all.

Madhu

From all popular opinion the Palestine’s can go fuck themselves and deserved to be massacred, while the Israelis are ordained by the great God himself to take the land for themselves. This is precisely the powerful west have always been telling others to get away from their own legacy of anti-Semitism leading to the Holocaust.

So the person to blame in all of this is GOD. First he sets up Jehovah land corporation and promises a large tract of fertile land to the Jews. Then setting up as Allah land securities he sells the same prime plot to the Arabs.

“The Gaza war has dramatically increased the sense of solidarity with Israel among its 21% Arab minority, who often identify as Palestinian and have long complained of discrimination by the state, a poll published on Friday found.

Asked if they feel part of the country, 70% of Arab citizens polled said “yes”, up from 48% in June ….

Asked if, given an alternative Western citizenship, they would leave Israel, 80.5% of Jewish respondents said they would stay, as did 59% of Arab respondents, the IDI poll found.”

That’s really interesting if it’s a true reflection, Jwl. Don’t mean to be a negative Nancy, though, but if you were an Israeli Arab, had for years complained about discrimination and then suddenly saw the events of Oct 7th before a man with a clipboard came and asked you if you were, essentially, one of us? Irrespective of what you felt, what would you say?

We were spoiled as fans to watch that quality of football for many years.

Absolutely Wenger laboured under an enormous handicap but there were plenty of other failings that had nothing to do with Chelsea or latterly City. Refusal to buy a defensive midfielder and claiming that Almunia was ‘world class’ spring to mind. Both could have been fixed with a modest investment.
