    The BBC link in the Colonel's thread below says the details of ownership have been passed to AAIB, but are subject to data protection rules so far as the press are concerned.

    Oh really? Did they have any insight into what might have happened?

    No. She said he rang her before take off to say what time he'll be home and she said she'll leave the key out of the door.

    They showed home footage of them playing games as a family on Xmas day.

    She's plugging the appeal really, they're halfway to the 300k needed.
    Said she just wants one more attempt at finding him.

    Where do they even begin looking if he wasn't in the wreckage? Got to feel bad for his family.

    Could he be mangled up in the plane somewhere?
    How big was this submersible?

    I'm afraid I disagree with you on the club's 'rights' to withold payment as agreed in the contract. This tragic incident was nothing to do with the club, as we all know, by the same token it was nothing to do with Nantes. Thus the contract between the two clubs stands. If we fail or have failed to make a payment as per the contract, then we may be in danger of having points deducted from our season's total.

    Of course, none of us know the terms of that contract.

    Ah. But if McKay had an interest in the aircraft , he was also a representative of Nantes.


    If you bought something online, and the company sorts out the courier and it gets damaged, and they refuse to send a replacement, would you pay?

    Tend to agree with this, however I did read the other day that it is unclear if the transfer was ratified or not with FIFA due to international clearance. If this is the case then I can understand how it may be a grey area.

    Thankfully this will be dealt with by people without any sort of emotional pull in the decision making. Hard as it may seem cold blooded business decisions will be handled by lawyers from here on in.

    I think he represents players not clubs

    Didn't they task him with selling Sala?

    Only report I have read seems to show that he approached Sala telling him he was just interested in the money:shrug2:

    In his very odd interview with L'Equipe, he was very cold in saying about his only interest being the money, and that he also manufactured interest from Everton and West Ham to get the deal done.

    So yes, I think he was tasked with shifting Sala on.

    If there's any link to the Mckays and the plane ownership, then they're in a serious amount of trouble financially and legally.

    Which explains their keenness to state very early on, media reports that they owned the plane were false.

    Agree and if he not in the plane they may as well give me the £300k to go looking for him

    Sala also had a French agent, I think Mckay is just one of the agents who has French clubs turn to for Premier league transfers. As I see it the only real issue on a legal basis regarding Mckay would be if he owned the plane and it was unworthy or unlicenced to carry out this task.

    I think the reticence over payment has more to do the registration of the player and whether he was technically a City player at the time of his death. No PL / FA registration might affect whether the contract was fully completed. In addition, it would affect his insurability. Clearly something for the legal boys to sort out.
