    There's no way they've really done any of this. But La Liga will let them in, UEFA will let them in, FIFA will do nothing.

    Meanwhile, Newcastle can't have a Saudi shirt sponsor.

    Orpheus Media - whoever they are. Probably owned by the same people, or by someone involved in La Liga / UEFA.

    Hard to find anything about them online except for a LinkedIn profile. Found this, but if it really is the same company, then I struggle to understand how a "young, vibrant agency" with revenues of just $5m can afford a €100m (£85m) stake in Barca.

    Its bullshit, the ceo is a Barca fan and a very rich bloke. FIFA are allowing effectively a person to throw cash at the club. All of which is outlawed. It’s incredible corruption at the highest level.

    Surely the rest of La Liga can see this corruption? What are they going to do about it?

    I suspect **** all. They know Barca is playing fast and loose with the rules but also know it pulls in a huge wedge of cash to the league. So there will likely be some very British muttering under their breath while just getting on with it

    Definitely dodgy! It will all come out in time that they have had dealings with the underworld.

    Yeah, Linkedin says that Orpheus Media have 3 employees. Have Barca bank transfered £85m which Orpheus Media have transferred back?

    You find Kate Beckinsale, in her peak, dressed all in leather and kicking ass arousing.

    Nothing strange about that.

    And he claims to be a male alpha and he’s never whacked one off while watching her in latex.
