FIFA Shore Looking To Whinge

FIFA Shore Looking To Whinge

FIFA are apparently concerned about the use of 'emergency loans' in the English game when it means a player, like Shorey, turns out for 3 different clubs in one season.

Goal.com are carrying quotes from a 'FIFA Spokesman' who believes that the appropriate regulations are being skewed when it suits.

This appropriate regulation, given this is the first time I've ever paid attention to it seems very much against EU law on restricting the right to work to be honest as by default it could lead a player to rot on the training pitch for a season if a loan move doesn't work out, but nontheless the super Paragraph 3 in Article 5 of the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players (short title - waste of space, typical beaurocracy) states that a player can as a maximum be registered with 3 clubs during 1 season, but can however only physically play for 2 of them.

Shorey has already turned out for Villa, Forest and now Fulham.

'Generally speaking, and with regard to the application of Article 5, Paragraph 3, the regulation should be applied as stated.'

However the FA's outlook on this is that emergency loans don't fall under this Regulation because the player is technically still registered to this 'parent' club.

However it now means the deal between Villa and Fulham is to be potentially investigated which may or may not have a bearing on the future of the player - as afterall, an agreement is in place to make the deal permanent at the end of the season should Fulham wish to.

Surely FIFA have better things to do? If the FA have classed the loan as an appropriate 'emergency deal' then Villa hold the registration and Article 5 is irrelevant.

Moreover, in the grand scheme of all things football, let alone life, what does it really matter if a player turns out for more than 2 clubs in a season.

It's a game...not an exercise in creating red tape to justify the existence of organisations that quite frankly football could do without.

Afterall, if I understood the news correctly earlier all the time FIFA spent on the Chelsea inducement nonsense was a waste of time because the players 'contract' was void anyway - therefore they cannot have breached any FIFA rules and the transfer embargo has been lifted.

Do you think eventually this game will ever be the fans' again?

Think you are missing the point on this regulation. What would stop a club with pots of money taking Kaka, Ronaldo, Messi, etc on loan for one or two games e.g. a League Cup Semi Final if this regulation did not exist. There is no 'right to work' in EU law. Otherwise we would not have 1,000,000+ unemployed. Free movement of labour is different but applies when a person wants to leave one employer and move to another. Doesn't quite work in football. As for Chelski, I am absolutely certain that they paid Lens all that money as a 'goodwill' gesture. That's just like them isn't it? Generous to a fault?

"Emergency loans" should be just that, to be used for teams that, for whatever reason, cash, injuries etc, can't fill there bench or put out a full team. (Gabor Kiraly, Crystal Palace Keeper we loaned springs to mind) The fact is that there isn't many laws/rules/regulations/articles/paragraphs that aren't worded in a way that they cant be manipulated/interpreted according to the requirements of the issuer. (or maybe i just watch too many TV Law shows ;-))

Whats to stop a club with loads of money buying Kaka, Ronaldo, Messi etc for the rest of their playing days? Not sure the likes of Real would be loaning their star players out for another club to use them to win trophies. In reality the 3rd club situation is going to happen once in a blue moon and doesn't need any more regs to control it.

The only emergency loans that should ever be done are goalkeepers.
