The whole business of playing while suspended seems to be a grey area to me. Did Mane not play for Liverpool last night in the Champions League whilst being suspended for Premier League games? Surely you are suspended or you are not. I am no expert on the numerous laws , rules and regs just an ordinary punter who enjoys the game but gets fed up with its complications and inconsistencies from League to League. Just keep it simple for Joe Public. Oh and hypothetically wouldn't it be a shame if poor old Stoke Gabriel (or any other club for that matter) could get relegated on goal difference because they got hammered by a club that fielded a stronger team against them than they did against their rivals. This could also apply to teams finishing at the top who similarly may be denied promotion and of course League prize money.
