UEFA today provided more evidence that they are a pack of hapless, idiotic, window-licking, making it up as they go along, cretins by rejecting Arsene Wenger’s appeal against the two-match ban handed down to him for talking to the person next to him.
In a statement released today they said:
Wenger will now be suspended from carrying out his duties at Arsenal’s next two UEFA competition matches – the UEFA Champions League group stage games against Borussia Dortmund and Olympiacos FC on 13 and 28 September – in accordance with the decision taken by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body on 22 August.
The manager was awarded this suspension for not abiding by an earlier decision of the Control and Disciplinary Body during the Udinese home game – in which Wenger was serving a one-match ban imposed following Arsenal’s final UEFA Champions League game of last season.
And UEFA’s hilarious japery doesn’t stop there. As well as upholding Wenger’s ban, they have fined the club €10,000 for ‘improper conduct by their officials’ during the Udinese game, despite the fact Arsenal – at all times – cleared everything with them.
It might be worth re-reading this piece which explains how the difficulty on the night was caused by the inexperienced UEFA delegate, but rather than holding their hands up and admitting that, Platini’s Pricks have punished Arsenal.
This is what happens when you mix a egomaniacal head honcho like Platini with the kind of pencil pushing adminstrators that weren’t quite good enough to make it to an EU job and therefore have an acute sense of personal failure so take advantage of every tiny little bit of power they can to make themselves feel important and worthy when the reality is they’d be better off topping themselves and taking whatever fragile minded children they’ve spawned with them. It’d make the world a better place.
An Arsenal source told Arseblog News, “UEFA are such gigantic cunts they make Na$ri look all right”.
We watch with interest to see how they punish those involved in racist chanting last weekend.
