Football: PM backs transfers.
Replying to a question about negotiations between Britain and German leader Gerhard Schroeder, the Prime Minister said: "Myself and the German Chancellor are wholly opposed to the Commission's proposals. I think they are misguided and wrong.
"For many of the clubs the transfer fee system is essential for their future, and we do not want to see a situation where we have smaller clubs go to the wall as a result of a misguided intervention."
