This is the place to be. There are loads of knowledgeable managers around,
always ready to answer your questions. But before you answer a question we've
had before, why not check out the F.A.Q.
and if it's not there, do a search on the boards to make sure there isn't a thread already.
Any manager who wishes to can make a formal complaint to the FA about any other teams transfer dealings. They do this by writing on a sheet of paper which team(s) their grievances are, and what their complaint is. Example would be 'Manager X took over team Y under a false name and transferred player1, player2, player3 to his main side.'
Necom then announce in the newsletter that an FA enquiry was being launched into transfer dealings by team Y.' A sheet is then sent to the manager of that team, asking for his response to the allogations. Based on the reply and obviously the info that necom collect themselves, as well as the info from the original complainant (and maybe any other managers who wanted to submit complaints) the FA would make a verdict the following week.
In cases where teams are found guilty of transfer impropriety, punishment from the LSFA may include (but not be limited to) players being returned to their original clubs for no fee; clubs being fined; clubs being deducted points.
All enquiries will be listed here, and the outcome also given when it is known.
Week 11 Vaughan to Middlesbro' from Everton for £ .48 Cahill to Middlesbro' from Everton for £ 1.3 Parlour to Middlesbro' from Everton for £ 3.5
Enquiry Finds Boro Guilty Middlesboro were this week found guilty of player poaching on two counts by the LSFA commission. A spokesman explained 'the original evidence submitted by managers suggested the Everton were taken over by Mr.Flack just to sign their best players. David Flack, manager of Middlesboro, opted not to give any explanation of the transfers, stating at the enquiry 'I have never managed Everton.' Since the Everton manager Martin Flack, shared the same address, email address and telephone number, this defence will not be accepted by the LSFA. As this is a first offence, the only punishment is that the players - both Cahill and Vaughan - will be returned to Everton. Middlesboro will not be refunded their transfer fees. In the case of Ray Parlour, the commission decided his transfer could be argued to be valid and Middlesboro were not found guilty on that deal.
Defoe to Man United from Tottenham H for £ 8 Robinson to Man United from Tottenham H for £ 3.33
Tottenham were found guilty of transferring Jermaine Defoe illegally from Tottenham to Manchester United. As this is a first offence, the punishment is simply that the player be returned to Tottenham and no transfer fee refunded.
In the case of Paul Robinson, the Tottenham manager successfully argued that he had attempted to exchange a keeper of similar potential (Chris Kirkland) plus cash, and the fact that this deal did not go through was not in fact his fault. In this case, the club were found not guilty.
12079 Ryan Green ( 25 / 77 ) to Roma from Cardiff City £.6m 270 Neil Alexander ( 28 / 77 ) to Roma from Cardiff City £.8m 4753 Leon Jeanne ( 25 / 77 ) to Roma from Cardiff City £.8m 3741 Willie Boland ( 31 / 77 ) to Roma from Cardiff City £.6m 1620 Bertrand Crasson ( 34 / 80 ) to Cardiff City from Roma £1.2m 1973 Alain Roche ( 38 / 80 ) to Cardiff City from Roma £.8m
The Roma manager subsequently resigned as manager.
As a result, Crasson and Roche have been returned to Roma for no fee, and Cardiff have been ordered to repay the £2.8m received for the awful players.
Follow up from a previous intervention. The LSFA moved Carragher and Alonso back to their club Liverpool a few months ago. Since then, a new manager has taken over Liverpool (who shares the same mobile number as AC Milan) and both players have moved back to Milan. The LSFA have been asked to investigate these deals - specifically whether they are legitimately managed clubs by individual managers, each acting in the best interests of their own teams.
2750 Andrzej Lesiak ( 40 / 80 ) to Inter Milan from Valencia £10.m 2054 Hugo Rodallega ( 21 / 81 ) to Inter Milan from Valencia £20.m 1527 Curro Torres ( 30 / 82 ) to Inter Milan from Valencia £12.m
10m for a 40yr old is over the top 20m for a 81 is also over the top Torres seems ok but still a little too much
but for a total of 42m for 3 players is really suspicious when u look at the other end of the deal
149 Francesco Toldo ( 35 / 82 ) to Valencia from Inter Milan £6.2m 1508 Stephane Henchoz ( 32 / 81 ) to Valencia from Inter Milan £2.8m 3029 Matias Almeyda ( 33 / 80 ) to Valencia from Inter Milan £2.8m 5256 Luis Figo ( 34 / 83 ) to Valencia from Inter Milan £8.m 7043 Filippo Inzaghi ( 33 / 84 ) to Valencia from Inter Milan £10.4m 1221 Javier Zanetti ( 33 / 84 ) to Valencia from Inter Milan £16.m
The explanation offered by the two clubs was disappointingly brief, simply pointing out that the ages of the players Inter were getting were low (Leisiak was originally 20 when the deal was arranged), whilst Valencia were getting old ones. However, the LSFA were unable to accept this version of events - as it doesn't quite ring true. Inzaghi, a 33 year old 84 was transferred for 10.4m whilst Torres - only three years younger and two overall points worse off - made the reverse trip for more money. Clearly age was not the important decider the two managers made it out to be.
Cardiff City were this week fined 17m by the LSFA following the sales of players Ruud Vormer and Sammy Hyypia to Valencia last week. Cardiff were also ordered to return player Vicente to Valencia with no fee refunded. New Valencia manager Nathan Quick had been investigated for a previous offence, whilst this is the third time Cardiff themselves have been found guilty of similar offences. Commenting on the severity of the fine, an LSFA spokesman explained : 'Experienced managers know exactly what is expected of them, and the type of deals that are and are not permitted. Both managers in this case have a huge amount of League Soccer experience and in truth this simply does not add up.' The LSFA has promised to clamp down on cases like this at all times in future.
