    Well, yes, the 2018 débâcle was caused in part by the players revolting against Bauza during the qualifiers and then against Sampaoli during the World Cup itself.

    And in 2014 in the match against Bosnia-Herzegovina they threatened to revolt if Sabella kept being so defensive.

    Every domestic competition in Argentina in the last… 30? years or more has had fixing of one sort at one or both ends at the table. Trophies, cup qualification, relegation, promotion… you name it, every single year there is a scandal. It's no wonder the players trained since then, looking up to handballer Maradona (a tremendous waste of talent if I ever saw one) are so prone to slouching and cheating and so on. It's just sad.

    So Man City have gotten a 2 year ban from Champions/Europa league. They are of course appealing the "kangaroo court" ruling. Were I a betting man, I would say it gets reduced to 1 year.
