What a Legia fail! :D
2014-08-08 12:27:47
At such level, someone's going to get fired (if not killed by Polish fans) :p

I read:

Celtic handed 3-0 win in second leg meaning they progress on away goals

Does it mean they would still go through if they had scored one of those penalties? :P

(To be honest, it does seem ridiculous that a player gets a 3-match ban, he remains out of the team for 3 matches, and he's still ineligible because someone didn't sign who knows what...)

Debrecen got only like 15k euros fee from similar thing some years ago...
2014-08-09 00:39:46
Debrecen used a not registered player

Legia used (weirdly...) ineligible player due to red card

these are 2 different brakes of rules...the first one allows financial fine, the second means (always, due to rules) a walkover

UEFA wanted (reportedly) to keep the score in favour of Legia but had no legal grounds to do it

2014-08-09 01:27:52
yeah, quite funny indeed

I wonder whether Legia would qualify to CL, but now we will never know

I still think that it Legia was not so strong - Celtic was so weak in both games...
2014-08-09 01:46:25
Celtic were weak, there is no doubt about that. I just can't believe some admin worker has just cost Legia a potential £15-20M. I bet they wont make that mistake again.

Maribor should beat Celtic also but I would not be surprised if Celtic get a lucky result & go through to the group stages. Legia have 5 days to appeal though don't they? So maybe it will change.
2014-08-09 01:53:53
It won't change, Legia has no legal grounds to appeal...

they can only rely on 'moral aspects', 'fair play' and every other bs that has no meaning whatsoever in a real court :p

stupid mistake, but it gets even funnier

it was made by a woman...well this is not the fun part yet. the fun part is when you read old interviews with her, where she explains that he had no work-connection with football before Legia (she was the personal assistant to previous club owner, a typical secretary). she also says something along the lines like "it's only about writing down shirt numbers and counting the cards, what can go wrong with that?"

2014-08-09 01:55:10
ah, the best part is that she isn't even pretty. she looks like a human poodle :D
