Well I guess the fact we've agreed to pay £4m compensation suggests it wasn't perfectly legitimate.
It's all been a bit of a storm in a tea cup. Despite predictions of doom and gloom, points deduction, relegation and liquidation (ok, I'm exaggerating now
) the fact the Premier League were willing to let the two clubs try and sort it out themselves suggests it was a fairly minor issue and more hassle than it was worth for them to get involved.
£4m compo, not even a slap on the wrist and now we can draw a line under it and move on.
