      • “Breach of UEFA rules…and the potential punishment of the football club”. That’s the salient point of what the media ignored, which you also seem determined to ignore. Please go back and read the article again before you comment. Read it S-L-O-W-L-Y.

        • I recognised that it’s against UEFA rules. Didn’t think an Israel supporter would be concerned with rules and laws. Israel tends to flout them. Do YOU think all laws should be adhered to, Ben?

          • Farmer I am a bit surprised that you seem to be confused that there is a difference between rules and laws.
            Or are you attempting to bring in the red herring of adherence to laws so that you can make some comment about Israel that has nothing to do with the topic of the thread?
