All I can say is expect another stitch up boys. Fact is FA is not going to sanction Man U unless they have an iron clad case. SAF will say he believed he had gotten permission, and it will be his word against WHU, so guess what happens.
FA is not going to go after WHU either. We all know they never owned Tevez outright, and if the FA digs it will just expose how imcompentent they were, twice. First in the initial transfer, and then when it came to light there was a 3rd party, and they took WHU word that the contract with the Iranian had been ripped up.
All parties, Tevez's people, WHU, Man U, and the FA have an interest in coming up with a quiet compromise, so they will. I'll expect he'll go to Man U on a long term loan with option to buy. Then there will be quite deals on the side to ensure the Iranian gets his money back, and the FA will take a blind view, and say the loan is between man u and WHU, with anything involving the Iranian being a seperate matter outside there area of responsibility.
Who really looses. Of course Sheffield Utd, but its a small club, so why upset the apple cart over them. But we the fans also get hurt, even the Mancs. We are the ones who pay for all this in ticket sales, TV fee's, and everything else. But we get the wool pulled over our eyes, and think its a level pitch. Fact is, money drives it, and those with the money will get their way!
