Football Ban Sensation

The news that FIFA has banned Chelsea from signing any new players until 2011 will rock the footballing world. Rarely have we seen punishment like this in a sport where “tapping up” allegations go hand-in-hand with the game.

Is the transfer ban imposed on Chelsea for breaching rules too harsh?

Has FIFA done the right thing? What sort of precedent will this set? Is this the harshest punishment meted out on a football club? It’s your shout.

Let me know what you think and we’ll use as many of your comments on air on Connect the World at 9p London time
