You are aware that City were found not guilty of breaking ffp rules?
What an extraordinary question.
Dave G – are you so dumb? City were fined. That means they were guilty. What happened was that the evidence had passed it’s use by date. It is a farce that money rules. When money buys the grace of innocence, there is no use for Law.
Harry Redknapp was found not guilty and some people believe that as well. Not anyone I’ve ever spoken too mind, but maybe we’re just a bunch of old cynics down our way.
Menace – You’re the dumb one…City were found not guilty of any financial offences because there was either insufficient evidence(not mentioned in the article) or the accusations were too old or they were based on illegally hacked emails. This doesn’t mean they would have been found guilty even if they were taken into account just that they weren’t considered. What they were guilty of is not fully cooperating with UEFA. You need to look closer to home for the problems in football which started with greedy teams who voted for the Premier League and got so comfortable at the top they didn’t any new competition.
“City were found not guilty of any financial offences because there was either insufficient evidence(not mentioned in the article) or the accusations were too old”.
“OR THE ACCUSATIONS WERE TOO OLD”! By your own admission then City were not found to be innocent. In fact had it not been for the fact that the “accusations were too old” they could well have been found guilty. In no way an exoneration then.
Man City, a club run so badly as to burn through 23 managers in 17 years from 1971 up until 2008 when the money arrived.
Man City, a club run so badly they didn’t win a trophy for 35 years, 35 years in which they were relegated 5 times and spent 9 years out of the top flight, then the money arrived.
Man City, a club run so badly they almost went bankrupt as recently as 2005:
Stuart Pearce reckons he saved Manchester City from going bust.
Nottingham Forest boss Pearce claims the now megabucks Blues were on the brink of bankruptcy during his time as their manager, and only the £21million sale of Shaun Wright-Phillips to Chelsea in 2005 saved them from going under.
“The club had sold the club shop, sold the ground to council, we were paying on the never and never for the Anelkas of this world,” he recalls.
“It really was a case that the owners said, ‘Unless Wright-Phillips goes, we go.’ On the Monday morning they pressed the button and Chelsea put £21million in the bank which bails the club out [but] which puts pressure on me because you are selling your goal-scorer.
…..then the money arrived and boy did the money arrive.
From nearly going bankrupt in 2005 Man City were suddenly, somehow, in a position to post a Nett LOSS of £367 Million over the next 6 years. Really?
Between 2008 and 2020 Man City posted a Nett deficit on transfer spending of ONE BILLION.
And we are expected to believe that this shambolically run club, that won that 1 single trophy in 35 years and nearly went bankrupt as recently as 2005 were suddenly miraculously ‘EARNING’ enough money to justify those losses. Bullshit.
You can whinge and whine as much as you like about being found ‘not guilty’ but anyone with 2 braincells to rub together knows that what City have done stinks.
Why would an innocent party need to withhold co operation and in addition to that threaten their accusers with bankruptcy if they pursue them through the courts ? Innocent people don’t do that.
If they, Man City, are prepared to make such threats in the public domain one has to wonder what they may threaten in private !
All this and you come on here with your ridiculously warped sense of entitlement telling us how we should all be so pleased for you and just move on, and when we’re not, You start telling us how bitter and jealous we are, when in reality it is you that are the bitter and twisted ones, having sat in the shadows of your great rivals as they won trophy after trophy whilst you wallowed in the depths of division 2. How you had to watch as you fell from grace in the early 70’s, whilst your Neighbours went on to rule the World, and what’s more they did it with style, and by just being MANCHESTER UNITED. That must of hurt.
And on top of all that they did it WITHOUT a corrupt nation state, with an appalling human rights record, piling Billions of pounds in. In fact they’ve got the BURDEN of some American businessman actually taking money out, that’s how superior as a club they are to you.
I can only think that it is Man City’s fans deep rooted jealousy of Manchester United, and other clubs that actually earned their place at the top table, that makes them so accepting of such filthy money, and so in denial of how they actually bought their way to the top in a fashion that is so absolutely abhorrent to most right thinking people.
Honestly Man City’s fans take on this is so warped it’s actually quite funny.
Nitram, I also believe there are loads of our friend Roman’s toy club like that too
They seem to think being gifted a Billion pounds plus from some dodgy Oligarch or shameful middle eastern human rights evader constitutes ‘A Brilliantly run Club’.
You couldn’t make it up.
