    Infantino, then big shot at Uefa himself made it possible for Man City and PSG to escape the punishment that had been given to other smaller clubs: being not allowed in the Champions League. Now he is head of Fick FUFA…. corrupt from head to feet… Disgusting.

    “I can’t say for sure, but the one or two people who kindly occasionally slip little snippets our way suggest that this time the serious media is not going to pretend it is all just fluff and flummery, and there’s nothing to see”

    I hope you are right but I’m sorry I just cant see it. As I mentioned elsewhere, just take a look at Oliver Holts article on pep Guardiola a couple of weeks ago in the Mail On Sunday:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-6324557/Pep-Guardiolas-masterpiece-hes-turned-Man-City-global-footballing-power.html

    It’s a disgraceful a misinterpretation of reality that you are ever likely to read. Take the following:

    “Everything about City at the moment suggests that they are on the verge of a period of dominance not seen in our domestic game since Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge at Old Trafford. Like the heroes he referenced, Guardiola is building something, too. With his energy, his verve and his intensity, he is trying to create his own masterpiece in England’s north west.”

    “Guardiola is building” Really ????

    The article hardly mentions the money, certainly not in the context of what Guardiola has spent.

    In his 3 years he already has a Nett spend of £375 MILLION. £375 MILION in 3 years for pitys sake.

    That is simply incredible on it’s own, but when you realise that that spend is on top of £222 MILLION Nett spend over the proceding 3 years it is simply mind blowing.

    If a manager CANNOT build a masterpiece on the back of that then when can he ? Both Ferguson and Wenger built masterpieces on a fraction of that.

    Should we really be lauding a manger in the same vein as either of those when it costs him HALF A BILLION POUNDS to do so?

    Honestly I don’t get it.

    But my point isn’t even really about the mind boggling amount of money City are spending, but more about the way Holt can simply brush over it as a mere irrelevence.

    Does Holt give a shit what kind of rougime the money comes from ? Obviously not.

    The Human rights of the state it comes from ?

    The simple immorality of spending such vast amounts on football players ?

    And all from a state that doesn’t even offer it’s citezens basic human rights !

    And why doesn’t he care?

    He doesn’t care because he himself is wallowing in the trough of money these people are pumping into the game.

    He himself is riding on the backs of the people being denied their human rights.

    Holt is just another hack who to me appears to have no morals, values or principles, and who is happy to see people suffer, as long as Pep can Spend another £100 Million in his glorious attempt to build his ‘masterpiece’ in Englands North East.

    But this is the saddest, sickest part Tony.

    Holt DOES know about the injustices of which we speak.

    Holt DOES know the nature of the rougime from which this money comes.

    Holt DOES know to what extent City have gone to circumnavigate rules that do not suit them.

    BUT HE DOES NOT CARE, and nor does anyone else with there snout in the trough, and that is shameful, and that is why nothing will change.
