Played in a 6 a side tournament at Stamford Bridge 19 years ago. We won, so cant hate the stadium - but it is no VP.
Zola turned up to watch that day, and we had our teams photo taken with him in the dugout. He was a proper bloke.

When I was 16 played in a 5 a side tournament by Highbury, as we won the tournament we played a Spurs side including Houghton, and a few other young first team players - needless to say they were so good, we only touched the ball at kick off after they scored another goal!
Fantastic experience.

Not much of a threat if it were to pop up again. Be interesting to see what happens to the unrepentant 3

The nine clubs who withdrew have agreed to make a combined 15m euro (£13.4m) goodwill contribution to benefit children's and grassroots football across Europe.

They will also have 5% of Uefa competition revenues withheld for one season, starting in 2023-24, and this money will be redistributed, including in the UK.

However will they cope?  I hope they've learned a valuable lesson.

Agreeing to a punishment is not really a punishment though is it?

It reminds me of The Soprano's where Meadow is in schtuck with her parents and basically suggests a punishment that doesn't really bother her and Tony and Carmela buy it. She walks away from them smirking....

I'm more bothered about there being regulation and updated rules to prevent it happening in future.

Yes those will become entry requirements.

That would be great. Would definitely have to go for a pint to celebrate if that happens, probably the scummiest team in the world.
