No the big clubs are just reminding FIFA if they want a new World Club competition they need to make sure they are given lots of places and money, that how we got the CL in its current format, UEFA is scared of the big teams leaving so keeps changing the format to suit them.

uefa are toothless to stop this abuse and teams know it and they are to scared to ban teams like City/PSG over fears of legal action.

now this Mancini stuff too.


i'm not sure what sort of fines could be put in place for such things.


but removing titles/cups and banning them from Europe is the only real way to give a fitting punishment.



of course that wont happen.

Everyone knew that sponsorship deal was dodgy (and all too convenient) when it happened.

They'll get a slap on the wrist somewhere down the line but no meaningful punishment.

all they can do is threaten to exclude them from the CL/EL but last time they hammered them with a fine then reduced it when the reduced there losses but this seems to have only been done by "slight of hand".

think the Spanish FA pushing Uefa might result in something but City will just threaten as mentioned in the e-mails to just tie this up in court for as long as needed.

yeah,credit to Wenger who was asking questions about there sponsorship deals when they where announced but no one else seemed to want real answers so it just went away.

I'd like to be shown a top 12 European club that doesn't bend the rules.

Money in sport corrupts. When there is the obscene amount of cash there is sloshing about within the CL its an absolute given ManC & several others are cheating in one form or another

refs had some fun today, some odd decisions and ok maybe they miss things but today they also made things up like a fictional deflection.



on a different note, i still find it tough to see a fella win the ball and get punished, like with the NFL safety is key but at times it does take something away too.

it would be hard to know but some violations are clearer than others.

the rules are already pretty stacked in the big teams favour with them been able to spend way more than most domestic teams with the commercial rights boosting there already massive incomes but City unlike others have not earned the world wide exposure that normally gets the big money instead just "bribed" big names.if out of £80m+ on the accounts for the two biggest deals only £11m actually comes from the sponsors own pockets as the 2015 accounts showed that allows City to keep increase there spendings without really growing as a club/business.

also seems they have got at times £40m of wages off the books using image rights company but its now seems it was just a shell company ran by the owners.

pretty sure a few years ago they tried to off-set millions from there scouting payment costs by claiming they where ran up equally by there MLS and Australian teams as well as city.

Fulham have appointed Claudio Ranieri as their new manager...…………..didn't even realise they'd sacked Jokanović!

In some ways he's got a job on his hands keeping them up, but then again Newcastle, in 14th, are only 4 points ahead of them. They've got some important home games against the sides around them in the run up to the New Year too.

Considering the money they have spent it'll be interesting to see if Ranieri can make an immediate impact.
