That has to be the most bizarre andtony smyth said:Given that those who oppose the government have a habit of being found dead, that the Russian mafia is powerful, that Abramovic is immensely wealthy and that the final is in his neck of the woods, I think United should take full precautions to prevent dirty tricks handing the game to Chelsea. In particular, the food at whatever hotel the team stays at. Maybe we should bring our own.
Perhaps this seem a bit paranoid, but Russia seems a country where there is one law for the rich and powerful, and then there is the rest. Dirty tactics to influence the result seem quite probable. Ten thousand pounds to a poorly paid waiter to spike the United food before matchday?
