He shoots, he scores, Masterley is on the ball

Back in September I suggested that the complaint against Chelsea from Lens, a French club, about the hiring of one of their trainees had no basis because Frenchlaw prohibits contracts of employment for minors.

Not surprisingly, the French controlled UEFA and Swiss controlled FIFA took a wholly predictable swipe at the English club, imposing a 4 month ban on transfers, although I said at the time that a good lawyer would run rings round Platter and Blattini at the Court for Arbitration in Sport

And so it turned out, but without a murmur of an apology from the Frenchman, who in one of his more unhinged monents accused the London team of child slavery.

Time for new chairman at FIFA and UEFA.
