I can’t stop laughing.
What comes around goes around.
This will affect any immediate transfer targets!February 14, 2020 at 7:29 pm #1826671

Rob can’t see it being upheld. Never is when it comes to transfer bans etc.
Be suprised if it is not over turned even though city were cooking the booksFebruary 14, 2020 at 7:31 pm #1826673
They’ll appeal and get 1 year.
Nevertheless who’s gonna join City in this predicament?
Will more players leave?
Will Pep walk?
Will it make it easier to win the league next year with no CL distractions?February 14, 2020 at 7:38 pm #1826675
They are still going to have to deal with, we got the team to dominate for the next few years right now, as long as we don’t start selling players out of the first team.February 14, 2020 at 8:53 pm #1826692
But City are going to get a free run at the title for the next two years unless the FA does something! Leicester could not have won the title if they had been playing European football, same goes for Chelsea last time… Its becoming a trend that someone drops out of Europe to have a good season in the league the season after, City would have a whole week to focus on every fucking game. What is the FA gonna do?February 14, 2020 at 10:49 pm #1826705
Notorious wouldnt it be ironic if we won the league and the CL this year then lol. As for City without Europe, I agree that will strengthen their PL chances but it might also affect their ability to get the best players now.
City have worked hard to try and get rid of that Oil Money reputation, this scandal doesnt help that lolFebruary 15, 2020 at 4:09 am #1826707
Lol.. fucking hilarious. Serve them right.. i used to root for city just so that utd wouldnt be champions, i thought they were alright.. but the level of arrogance coming from.their players and fans last season.
Their players singing allez allez mocking liverpool and their fans singing about gerrard in a match against another team. What a classless bunch.
They probably halve the ban in the appeal but pep will be gone and their transfer budget will be cut.February 15, 2020 at 5:09 am #1826710
The CAS appeal will take a while so it’s more than likely that they will start next season’s CL campaign. Whether they would get ejected halfway should the appeal fail I don’t know. Don’t know what the PL is going to do but there’s no point to stripping their titles if the runners’ up aren’t going to be awarded the trophies. I say hit them with a huge points deduction and impose a transfer ban for the next 2 years. These cheats have been brazenly and openly breaching FFP for years and yet we’re the ones who have supposedly been influencing referees. They probably thought that they’d just be hit with another fine. Sucm!February 15, 2020 at 9:02 am #1826724
They must take last year title from City and give it to us..
The red side of Manchester has something to celebrate….February 16, 2020 at 1:46 pm #1826946
Here’s hoping there is some justice!February 17, 2020 at 6:55 pm #1827164
Just don’t understand how PSG are getting away with FFPFebruary 17, 2020 at 9:31 pm #1827239
I don’t think they got away with it, technically speaking anyway. They were indeed charged with breaching the rules but CAS accepted their appeal and the case was dismissed. The difference between the PSG case and the Man City case was that Man City were allegedly discovered to have falsified documents that they provided to UEFA with regards to complying with FFP requirements whereas PSG just breached FFP outright. This isn’t a new allegation levelled at City as it was done so when their absurd sponsorship deals that could be linked back to their owner were announced in response to new UEFA regulations at the time. In any case, they were allegedly found to have been using funds provided directly from their owner that they claimed were provided to them from these dodgy sponsorship deals. In other words, they committed fraud. Their conduct in lieu of this hasn’t exactly painted the picture of innocence either, with threats to sue UEFA for the in European courts next decade should their CAS appeal fail. Such statements shouldn’t even arise until after that appeal fails in the first place and that process is known for getting a number of clubs out of hot water. Knowing these organisations, money talks, so they’ll probably just bribe their way out of trouble if it comes to that.February 17, 2020 at 9:39 pm #1827245
Besides, I had a domestic helper who used to work in the Middle East. These scum think they’re above the law and class themselves above everyone else. Arguing the case even when they’ve clearly done wrong would be nothing more than stroking their ego.February 18, 2020 at 2:40 pm #1827499
If you want to know exaclty whats going on just google David Conn he has covered this story brilliantly he also has a some great work around the Hillsborough disaster he is well worth a follow.February 19, 2020 at 6:14 pm #1827892
Ah well. Hopefully the anti FSG people out there will take note. They’ve been dreaming of owners like City for a long time, but the grass isn’t always greener.February 22, 2020 at 11:03 am #1828658
Serves the idiots right.
They bought the league 4 times, while FSG had to work round the clock, to identify the best value players and balance the books with a very low net spend, just to win us our first PL title.
Makes you realise even more just how much of a genius Klopp is to overcome such a corrupt team with unlimited fundsFebruary 24, 2020 at 7:43 am #1829115

Songman, I don’t mind them buying titles actually, after all we bought many of our titles. What I do mind is that they agreed to a contract which everyone else seems to have abided to and broke it, they tried to con everyone even though everyone knew what they were up to and in the mean time they have committed fraud, which is not only breaking UEFA and FA rules but also the laws of England and the EU. It might even be under USA jurisdiction if they used the US dollar as currency. Buying the league is one thing, cheating your way to the title is another, which is a shame because I would not celebrate our 2nd position in 2014 as anything else than a silver medal. So no celebration at all, even though I would find it funny if we would win 2 league titles in the same year and equal Utd’s record in one go…
