What P;sses me right off is they called the search off for this until payed for by Footballers and Crowd funding, but the search still goes on for a little Girl from Leicester payed for by tax payers money. Both Presumed Dead but with more evidence the parent's caused one of them.

Today's news that Nantes have served legal papers on Cardiff for the non payment of the first instalment of Salas transfer fee shows a distinct lack of empathy or understanfing. I hope no other British clubs wish to have any dealings with the classless Frenchies

Nantes actions totally inappropriate in the present circumstances........As evidence into the plane's apparent terminal failure unfolds, and more importantly, bodies are recovered, now is not the time.
Maybe when the two clubs and any insurers can enter into a respectful dialogue, things can get settled, but not now when the realities are still so raw.

The body brought up from the plane today has now been identified as that of the footballer, such a sad story.

Does that mean the transfer fee can now be paid?
What a Fubar situation.

Do you think this is as straightforward as it seems. Sure the pilot should still been in the plane ?

If Sala had been in his seat belt that would explain why he was still in there. The pilot could have exited through the screen or the damaged fuselage. Further searches have now been called off according to the news this morning.

Speaking to a mate of mine yesterday who is a licenced private pilot he said there seemed to be irregularities in this,it seems the pilot only held a private licence and they are not allowed to fly for gain,and apparently the lad was offered a commercial flight but chose the private one.Doubtful if Cardiff would have had time to get insurance cover on him either.

Looks like the pilot may be somewhat exonerated, now it seems the player and most likely the pilot were overcome by carbon monoxide poisoning, that would go a long way to explaining the crash.
