Yesterday, 7 June, the powers that be at Uefa fined Besiktas €30,000 (£22,000) for a cat — yes, a cat! – running onto the field of play during their Champions League game vs Bayern Munich.

The same people fined the Russian Football Federation approximately €8,000 less for racist chants by their fans when they played France!

How can anyone, I ask, take this bunch of idiots seriously and trust them to look after and run our game properly???

Good question...

And our loveable neighbours got fined, what was it, about £21k for the stoning of Man City's coach. A cat is clearly much more dangerous.

Ah, but that doesn't count, Paul.

You have just given me an idea!

Let's put a black cat on the pitch at Anfield... If it doesn't bring bad luck, at least they will get fined.

I couldn't believe that RS fine. How is such behaviour outside a ground any less reprehensible than if coming from the stands during a game? If the latter the penalty would surely have been much more severe and even warranting a ground closure for any next Champions League fixture?

There seems to be sense or reasoning behind the scale of the fines imposed

Like I said, idiots the lot of them! 🃏
