Optimism Redux

My candidate won:

Platini has said he will limit the number of automatic Champions League places to three clubs per country, a worry to England who presently have four, while also saying he will try to cap the amount of money a club can spend, a threat to Chelsea’s financial muscle.

He said: “We must always see to it that the strong help the weaker ones. Let’s defend the national associations against the interests which are threatening them. It is a game before a product, a sport before a market, a show before a business.”

…although that last sentence might need unpicking at some stage.
