 Platini arrested over Qatar WC award

At last, something is getting done! For sure, this scandal has a long way to run yet...


Former UEFA president Michel Platini has been arrested in relation to the awarding of the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, a judicial official said.

Confirming a report by online news publication Mediapart, the official said Platini was taken into custody on Tuesday morning (local time) as part of the investigation into the awarding of the tournament.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to discuss an ongoing investigation.

Platini, a former French football great, was being detained at the Anti-Corruption Office of the Judicial Police outside Paris.

Claude Gueant, the former secretary-general of the Elysee under former French president Nicolas Sarkozy, was also questioned by investigators as part of the probe but was not detained.

French financial prosecutors have been investigating the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups and previously questioned former FIFA president Sepp Blatter.


Key points:

Michel Platini was among those who voted to award the 2022 World Cup to Qatar.

French prosecutors have been investigating the bidding process for potential corruption.

Platini is being held at the Anti-Corruption Office of the Judicial Police outside Paris.

As soon as the U.S.Fed got involved I thought,all these guys are doomed, they don't hang about, and whatever you think about them, they will get their guys regardless.

Our bankers, auditors, accountants etc. are still wandering about fine quite the thing-whereas in U.S. at least quite a number of the culprits of 2008 are locked up, pretty much for good (many still not of course)

Basically feels like a list that are now toast-Platini has been bumping his gums recently, shouting away-always a key sign that something is up when someone does that!

In the meantime, we have to watch a WC in Qatar....and if you can be ar#ed -watch a Disney version of Champions League.

Basically all we are watching is vast sums of dirty money on a football pitch.

These people have no shame and there's no limit to their greed. You would think ulta rich people like Platini would have no need to stoop to such underhand tactics for sums of money that are almost loose change to them.

Many fine journalists have been calling those in power at FIFA and UEFA out for decades about corrupt practices. Those in Africa, Asia and the American confederations are no better, but everyone buried their heads in the sand and they continued to act with impunity.

Every nation should stand together and refuse to participate in the 2022 WC. Failing that, the major clubs should refuse to release their international stars. What could FIFA do? Why should a WC be played in a searingly hot environment at a time which will disrupt almost every league of participating countries around the globe.



Not your average Sunday League player.

I think his time with the club in black and white has taught him a few things. The greed of football will be its own curse. I hope they all implode. Champions League is and will always be a farce. How many champions participated in the later stages of that tournament. Makes me heave and refuse to watch it. Would rather watch the juniors than that mob.

And Sarkozy is the big fish to be caught at the end, to finance PSG (by a reprehensible government!!) as well as allow BeIn TV in France amongst others.

Chuck Blazer squealed to implicate the others, and avoid a life sentence (then dies under curfew...)

Lennart Johansson just died, Blatter is currently processing charges...with additional sexual assault claims, trouble is , he is Swiss so unless there is the pressure put on them by FEDS as they did with Blazer, probably will get pushed away somehow-ditto , the whole sh'#/show is awaiting a report from the Council of Europe to the member states.

Feels like the dominoes cannot be stopped here.

I have zero interest in the Champions League-roll on the Betfred Cup!!!!!

Where are you with your usual innocent until proven guilty rhetoric or is that just for suspected paedophiles?

^^ I'm thoroughly looking forward to this battle of the minds here... on the one hand we have VEE, an experienced legal eagle battling his relentless path to the garden of deep conservatism, constantly accompanied by the dulcet tones of Merle Haggard...

On the other hand, we have SIF (a veteran himself) who disdains such folly in order to hijack perfectly innocent attempts at crap humour with endless posts about paedophiles, Israel, God (or the lack thereof), and other such "Angry man with a conscience" type topics...

Now, I'm no bookie, but I reckon this could be a close run thing...

Will it finally tilt toward the experienced head in Alloa, or will the young rebellious punk be allowed to give the middle finger to the established order...?

Stay tuned, pop pickers...

Point taken.

I must refrain from flagging up humorous images - mea culpa etc.

VEE clearly sitting off at the moment, allowing SIF to pass it around leisurely...

Still no shots at goal yet in these tranquil early stages...

For the record, I have absolutely no idea if Platini is guilty or innocent of anything.

Mind you, he's French, that "must" be grounds for suspicion of something.

VEE passing side to side, quietly dominating the midfield area... a sharp diagonal ball to the right almost opens up the defence, but rolls out harmlessly for a shy...

Or as a Glaswegian would say, slightly disrespectfully, "gaun yersel Michel." Maybe we want to find some folks guilty over that decision because it seems highly suspect and I hardly imagine anyone will end up doing porridge for it so hit them in the pocket.
