    If I remember this correctly, Freddie Shepard, then, of them up the road, sued the FA for the loss of their player, due to an injury sustained, whilst on England duty, and I believe the money paid to Newcastle was in the millions.

    So what would happen should we be relegated, Due to Fletcher being injured, whilst on call up for his country. a potential loss of £120 million, and we sue the Scottish FA, THE PRECIDENT HAS ALREADY BEEN SET, We efectively bankrupt the Jocks, the Scottish leagues would go into freefall. worth a comment,or several

    A damaged anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, sustained in the first minute of the group match against Sweden at the 2006 World Cup, kept Owen out of regular football for nearly a year, until April 2007. The seriousness of Owen's injury at the World Cup inflamed the so-called 'club-versus-country' row in England, centring on the liability of the world governing body FIFA and the English national association The FA for the cost of injuries to players incurred while on international duty.[SUP][67][/SUP][SUP][68][/SUP] Newcastle were aggrieved at the length of time Owen would now be out of action in forthcoming Premier League and Cup competitions as a result of the World Cup injury, particularly as he had been out for the half-season prior to the World Cup. Under the existing insurance arrangements between club and country, FIFA and the FA had been paying £50,000 of Owen's £110,000 weekly wages since he suffered the injury, totalling about £2m for the time he was out of action.[SUP][69][/SUP] By September 2006, Newcastle were threatening to sue the FA for further compensation, for a reported figure of £20m.[SUP][67][/SUP] The Owen case was a high-profile follow-up to an already ongoing legal claim for compensation from FIFA over an injury incurred by Abdelmajid Oulmers on international duty.[SUP][68][/SUP]
    Newcastle's compensation claim included the £10m cost of buying Owen's replacement, Obafemi Martins, £6.2m towards Owen's salary costs while injured, the possibility of long-term damage to Owen's fitness and ability, the loss of league position and cup competition progress, depreciation of Owen's four-year contract, and the cost of medical treatment for Owen.[SUP][67][/SUP][SUP][69][/SUP][SUP][70][/SUP] In February 2007 FIFA made Newcastle a "final offer" of £1m.[SUP][70][/SUP] By April 2007, Newcastle were threatening to take out an injunction to stop the FA from picking Owen for England games.[SUP][71][/SUP] The club finally reached a compromise settlement figure with FIFA and the FA. FIFA indicated that the settlement was between £6m and £7m. The club, stating that Owen's wages had "now been paid in full", stated the overall compensation achieved totalled £10m.[SUP][69][/SUP] Resulting from the Owen compensation claim, the FA doubled their future insurance coverage of England players to £100,000, and FIFA introduced a compensation fund for injuries sustained at World Cups.[SUP][68][/SUP]

    It was Owen and i thought they got 10 million, but from what i can find (which isnt a lot) they got jack squat.

    and surely this is what insurance is for.

    tbh even with Fletcher we would still be in the **** (purely conjecture, but he wasnt scoring anyway)

    ^^ ah well my memory was correct, not usually that happens.
