Yeah, Man Utd have won all the titles with the help from referees. Jeez, John, your jealousy is killing you. You somehow managed to drag Man Utd (again) into this CL debate.

I am not saying that. My point is, how can you say that the CL is fixed but not the PL when it comes to Man Utd? How?

I am talking of clubs deliberately allowing other clubs to score etc.
And that happens in CL way to often, Europa League and other smaller competitions almost on a daily basis. Aren't you not seeing the reports for match fixing scandals?
You and Paul think that "Big" or "Elite" clubs don't do that?

When in the PL other clubs let Man Utd just score v them, huh? On contrary, they play there best vs Man Utd.
Yes, Man Utd get penalties, but Man Utd attacks and is very often sitting in front of the opponents goal, so yes the chances of them getting penos are higher.

And the focus was on yesterdays and some past CL games, don't try to turn this discussion into anti Man Utd one like you always do.

I am not turning it into an anti Man Utd thing. I am just saying that its weird the way you think there is match fixing in the CL with other clubs but when it comes to probably the most controversial football club on the planet, you thinks its crazy to think that there might be match fixing involved. That's my point.

Ok, Man Utd buys the titles. Are you happy now? Or you jealous because Liverpool can't do the same?

Now, back to the CL, there are facts and investigations for alegedly fixed games.
There is no such thing for PL, right?

ALLEGED!

Allegations are made all the time. Could be because an unusual flury of bets on a result etc, they do their jobs and investigate.

Italy, one of the most corrupt countries in the developed word, couldn't get away with it, Juventus got relegated because of it so if you can't get away with it in Italy I doubt you can get away with it in the most prestigious club competition on earth, uefa has a INDEPEDENT commission to make sure they investigate and uncover all wrong doings in the European game, be it racists, hooliganism, corruption or match fixing.

I never said Man Utd do anything. All I said is that I find it strange how you think the CL is fixed but yet you think its mad to think there could be something going on with the team you support. I never said anything about Man Utd doing anything. I just said its strange how you think.
