17.18 One player from the above quota of three who has played UEFA club competition matches for another competing club in the current season may exceptionally be registered, provided that the player has not been fielded:
− in the same competition for another club
− for another club that is currently in the same competition”.
So the rules are clear-only exceptionally a player be registered-and of course Real Madrid goes to TAS for nothing and it is absurd to alleged the force majeure-article 30 of the Regulations of the Uefa Champions League-, since it is ridiculous to say that the injury of 3!!! players is a situation of force mejeur; please, common sense! Force majeure was for example the Manchester United´s air crash in 1958 but to include 3 injured players as cause of force majeure is a bad joke and a recourse to “hide” the Mijatovic´s mismanagement last summer- remember that he said the squad was perfect and complete and that Real Madrid would not sign any players during the winter market ... what a visionary, what knowledge of the squad! It seems clear that his time at Real Madrid is coming to the end (if he has a bit of dignity, he should resign and if he continues “working” in Real Madrid, his role should be limited to speak to the medias after the games, as FC Barcelona´s football director Txiqui Beguiristain, because these 2 men are not ready to have more functions)-. We will await the TAS´s decision, awaiting that it rejects the Real Madrid´s plea, because if it admits its plea, TAS will penalize teams like Liverpool FC- it is clear that the "reds" can not have the problem of Real Madrid, because Rafa Benitez has worked well in recent years and he has a complete squad with good player in all the lines (Carragher, Agger, Arbeloa, Skrtl, Dossena, Fabio Aurelio or Degen in the defensive line; Gerrard, Xabi Alonso, Mascherano, Leiva, Benayoun or Riera in the midfielder line and Kuyt, Torres or Keane as strikers) - ,which worked according to the rules and they planned and signed the adequate players during the summer for all the season. Real Madrid should emulate this teams and it must work well under the current regulations, without favours from the Uefa, as if Real Madrid has the control of the Uefa .... I wonder what would happen if Liverpool FC was the team with this “genial” idea-to register a player infringing the law-, it is clear that it this case we would see a Real Madrid and journalists as Roberto Gomez ´s campaign against Uefa and Liverpool FC, wanting a non adulterated competition ... Anyway, we must wait the decision knowing that when Mr Platini appears, anything is possible specially if Mr Platini imitates Mr Villar and he wants a Real Madrid´s favour in the future and in this case we should be not amazed if we will see Huntelaar and Lass playing the Champions League´s game against Liverpool FC.
We will see.
