    Why was Pape Gueye playing for Marseille tonight? Ban overturned?

    Suspended pending the outcome of their appeal to CAS.

    I think you will find the ban was overturned before AFCON, because he played at AFCON too.

    Didn't he get banned during it but playing under appeal?

    He was originally banned before AFCON and was not supposed to be playing there, but as you say he was allowed to play under the appeal or something like that.

    However he was definitely not supposed to be playing at AFCON before the appeal was lodged.

    This isn't correct, @wfc4ever is right, he literally played in their first group game before being withdrawn from their second game against Guineau '5 minutes before the kickoff', when Senegal learned of the ban.

    It was announced in the press the next day, on the 15th, before the CAS suspended his suspension on the 17th, allowing him to resume playing in the tournament.

    And yet he started his previous post with ‘I think you will find….’

    The gift that keeps giving.

    Meanwhile we are loaning Gueye to Stevenage for next season. Hopefully he get some game time.

    The article says that the final decision will be made next month.

    He was only 21 and coming from Ligue 2 when he was supposed to be signing for us, but our getting relegated just before he was about to join was likely what put a spanner in the works, sure.

    He hasn't actually played a huge amount for Marseille and established himself as a regular there though. He'd only made 4 starts this season before moving to Sevilla in Jan.

    Even if he does get a 4 month ban we're doing far less damage to his career than if he'd signed for us and been exposed to the Watford Medical Department.

    I don't know why I love this so much. Did Marseilles create it?

    Might be Udinese might be Marseille. Just saw us get flooded with it on twitter from Marseille fans. I love it personally.

    No, it was a Zaragoza fan who was pissed off that we recalled Luis Suárez before their promotion play-offs

    A little more money incoming by the sounds of it.

    The Court of Arbitration for Sport's made its ruling on Pape Gueye, determining he DID breach his #WatfordFC contract when he signed for Marseille. Watford get just over £2.3m in compensation. Gueye is banned for 4 months. L'OM banned from signing anyone for 2 windows. Case over

    ... Given events earlier today, did we really manage to inflict an U.N.O Reverse Card transfer ban?

    Reading through this thread when he signed for Marseille makes today's transfer 'ban' thread feel like Groundhog Day. And incredibly it's the exact same people, doing the exact same premature pant-wetting. Lessons have been learned, indeed.

    A transfer ban, then two transfers and 2.3 million pounds coming in. And it’s still only 2.40pm today

    Is this £2.3mil separate from the £2.1mil they paid us when the case went to FIFA? If so, making £4.4mil off a player that never played for us isn’t bad.
  34. UEA_Hornet

    UEA_Hornet First Team Captain

    No, it's the same amount FIFA ordered OM and Gueye to pay us. OM appealed it so presumably haven't coughed up yet. We also appealed and asked for it be increased. Neither appeal was successful.
