'If It's Football, It's Vital'

No FIFA Investigation Against United

FIFA confirmed that they had not started an investigation against Manchester United in the case of Michele Fornasier, the 16-year-old starlet signed from Fiorentina, taking advantage of the rule preventing Italian clubs from tying down under-17 players to a professional contract.

'We can confirm that we were contacted by Fiorentina with regard to the potential transfer of the player, Michele Fornasier, to Manchester United,' a FIFA spokesman told the Telegraph.

'However, no formal investigation has been opened since the documentation currently in our possession, from a purely formal point of view, is not apt to sustain such action.'

They also added that Le Havre, the former club of Paul Pogba, haven't made any formal complaint yet - they were just mouthing off in the press. The French Football Federation is still holding back Pogba's international transfer certificate, though: in that case, there is an investigation going on, requested by Manchester United. Hopefully they'll resolve it soon.

just the coin throwing and the pitch invader to deal with then!

So are you saying this only happens at OT??
I assure you it happens all over the country, and in other countries its even worse!
Look at Dida getting hit by a flare a few years ago in a Milan derby!

Yea merlin i suppose so, but then again you've got some issues of you own: The inability to sign youth legally. The diving, oh no wait Didier is just part of the Ivory Coast olympic diving squad. The Tolerance control, we don't need another outburst by a sore Chelsea losing against Barca again. And the intentional fouls, oops i meant conveniently timed fouls. Chelsea have got alot more issues than us.
One United 92
Also John Terry switching from centre back to goalie mid games without anyone else knowing except him.

The coin thrower was a muppet - but the fan running onto the pitch - even though he was out of order - didnt deserve a slap in the face from Bellamy
