    I am cancelling out the European cup trophies awarded to Real Madrid in 57 and 59 on the basis they advanced through the knockout stages unfairly.

    A quick look in the history books shows me Real Madrid advancing in knockout stages of two separate European competitions, when they should have been dismissed on the away goals rule.

    In 57 they drew 5-5 on aggregate with Rapid Vienna, winning the first match at home 4-2, only to lose the second leg 3-1. Under the away goals rule, they are kicked out.

    In 59, they drew Atletico Madrid in the Semi Final. Won the first leg at the home 2-1, losing the second 1-0. Again,they should have been dismissed.

    In both cases, the ties were settled, not by a very fair coin toss, as I am sure many had guessed, but by a "playoff match" that took place back at Madrids home ground. WTF? UEFA sportswashing.

    I am therefore stripping Madrid of two European titles. Total European fixes. Makes Man City's FPP cheating look positively charitable.

    Only the ones without english teams (before that, it was just the old Latin Cup with a brand new name).
