    Man City Escape Ban From Champions League

    I don't even know why I bothered to read this thread because I knew all I would find is a load of vitirol and personal insults directed towards City fans as opposed to balanced arguments. Comparing this to a rape trial is a personal favourite of mine (prior to reading this thread the front runner was Ewan MacKenna comparing the case to that of the OJ Simpson murder trial). Let's get a few things clear. Contrary to what most of you want to believe, many of the alleged FFP breaches were actually found to be 'not established'. We'll have more information of course when the full report is released. People are right to comment on the fact that some of the allegations were also 'time-barred'. Again, I am presuming we will have more of the particulars when the full report is released. But I'd like to know why no one is asking why UEFA - who SET the rules and therefore should have a thorough understanding of the time limitations on cases - continued to pursue the matter? As the rule-creators surely they were aware that the issues/evidence they were perusing were time-barred, yet proceeded to ban us from the Champions League? To me it reeks of either ineptitude or a bit of a witch-hunt (that they thought they would get away with). Probably a mix of both. As Graeme Souness quite rightly pointed out a few months back, UEFA aren't exactly a beacon of morality and good practice. It should also be clarified that, while the report states that we 'contravened article 56 of club licensing and financial fair play regulations', this does not actually mean that we broke FFP regulations. If you do a bit of research you will find that this section of the article refers to the requirement to cooperate with UEFA in the event of an investigation regarding FFP. I feel that the way it has been worded has mis-lead people into believing it is an admission of breaking FFP rules, it is not. While I do not dispute there are a number of potential reasons we did not cooperate with the investigation, it's very feasible that we told UEFA to get lost because they had already decided we were guilty. What has surprised me most about this entire case is the response from other fans who a) foolishly believe that their own clubs have not, at some point, broken FFP rules and b) were thrilled to have City investigated by an independent sport regulatory body, yet have thrown their toys out of the pram because they haven't got the result they wanted. As it stands, football is one of the only businesses in the world where investors cannot invest their own money to build their business. It is a crazy concept to me given that the 'European Giants' are all founded on strong financial backings that have allowed them to attract the best (most expensive) players, build the biggest stadiums, fund the best marketing strategies etc.. Personally, I'd be over the moon if every football club in the league had strong investors like us. Imagine the competition. We really did hit the jackpot that day 12 years ago, and I have enjoyed every minute since. But I really am getting fed up with the nastiness directed at us personally, as fans, for enjoying the successes of our football club.
  3. Credit to Villa. It wasn't quite the walk in the park a lot of people expected it to be. Feel sorry for Stones. Constantly in and out of the team and has been unlucky with injuries. Big mistake to make but I thought he recovered well as was arguably our best defender in the second half. Still feel his time at City will be short-lived as I think Guardiola is running out of patience with him. Foden looked sublime. Nice to see him start in a high-stakes game and answer many questions that (non-city) fans have been asking of him. Shame about Villa conceding a corner that wasn't actually a corner, but that's football. We all come a cropper to it at some point. I would feel more sorry for Villa if we didn't have such a shoddy conversion rate from corners. Can't remember the stat but it really is awful. All Villa needed to do was put in a decent defensive effort and it wouldn't have been an issue.

    It’s a bit of a weird one, but stick with it. Season 4 is the best of the lot.
  5. Of course it has an effect on the title race. Anything at this point does. Let’s be honest, if City had lost tonight and you remained three points in front you’d consider it an advantage in your attempt for top spot. You’d rather be in front than behind at any point in the season. As for those holier than thou who could think of nothing worse than not caring about your team’s result... congratulations on being the bestest more super fans in the world 👏 Enjoy your view up there from your horses. Christ. For what it’s worth, always thought Everton are a decent club with nice fans. Don’t think they set out to make it easy for us at all today and their fans were obviously in a weird predicament which I think reflected in the atmosphere at Goodison. Hope they go on to have a good finish to their season.

    I hope we see more of May in the 5th series, love her character.
  7. If we don't win it I would very much enjoy a late charge from Watford. Failing that, it has to be Tottenham.
  8. Here’s what I really know: Liam - doing well and has a beautiful daughter. Chat regularly and see we are meeting up soon for Everton vs city Deadlinesman - has good taste in Florida holidays Superpav - Against his good judgement, resisted my advances and is now engaged to a nice girl who is probably too good for him Lucas - true that I did sell him foo fighters tickets. However posted the tickets without the stamp cause I am a knob. Turned up eventually thankfully Storts - the reason that I am on this thread. Lovely but is busy every time I’m in London. Avoiding me I think Is CC still about anywhere?
