      UEFA’s suspicions were aroused after Pep Guardiola paid £50m for John Stones and £1,200 for this sh*te cardigan.




      Also, the ban is due to an investigation into City up to 2016, they could get another one for 17-20 too! ;D

      Any fine shouldn't go to UEFA to fuel their own corruption. Give it to that Juan Mata charity that Klopp supports or something like it.


      UEFA have made a lot of goody bags out of Man City. They are their gift that keeps on giving, and I think when the dust settles City will end up paying UEFA a bigger fee to buy their way out of the ban.

      The blue moon forum is very funny, they dont seem to want to understand that their clubs success is built on corrupt notion of sports washing the Abu Dhabi states image in the west. What the Sheikhs are doing over here is very little to do with football and has given them an unfair advantage over every other team.

      And still no European Cup that they crave for full exposure.

      Dont like to see this in the kop section though, nothing to do with us.

      Just a thought, if they are to spend however many millions fighting this, that would just be more money they have to try and balance?

      Apparently they failed to cooperate, so they obviously had stuff to hide.

      Nothing set in stone yet, the appeals process will go through CAS at the very least and my guess is there will be a reduction to a one year ban, similar to AC Milan.

      I remember posting the Der Spiegel article on here when it dropped ages ago, if anyone wants to know the depths of the skull duggery in action I highly recommend reading it.

      I'm not so sure it will get altered by cas, I think this is meant to send an example, plus citeh have been tw*ts about this, frustrating the investigation etc.

      Irrespective of what happens then their brand name has been irreversibly tainted by cheating.

      There will have to be some form of ban, even if its reduced for one season, otherwise UEFA's FFP may as well be scrapped.

      The Premier league are obliged to act if their appeal fails then we will see what the EPL are made of.  Relegation possibly ? and what about others like Chelsea and PSG ?

      There's 2 sets of "fans" at City, according to a mate of mine who's been going to matches for about 50 years.

      You've got the older ones, who've been following the club for years and years, who weren't too happy about the moneybags approach, and knew something was going to happen sooner or later. (The bubble's going to burst at some point was how it was put to me)

      Then you've got the newer lot who are entitled arseholes, and just jumped on the bandwagon when City started becoming high profile.
      Apparently, very few of them go to matches (explains a lot), but they expect to win everything by virtue of chucking money at it, and never stop moaning when things don't go their way.

      I've known quite a few of the older City lads over the years, and they're decent, not really given to dick swinging and all the rest of the sh*t you see from the newer lot.
      It's not just a generational divide; the new lot don't know anything of the club or it's history, they just want to be seen supporting a team that's winning.

      So I feel for the older lads; they're seeing their club dragged through the mud, and the utterly embarrasing bullshit the new lot are coming out with.

      Was talking about this with 2 city lads down the pub.
      Known them both for years, and they reckon they could get last seasons title taken off them and handed to us.

      All hypothetical of course, but I'm not sure how I'd feel about that.

      I wouldn’t want the title, they won that fair & square to be honest, we gave it our best that season & the disappointment of loosing by 1 point has taken us to the level we have this season..It’s how we do it.

      David Conn (Guardian journalist who wrote the original piece) was on Talk Sh1te this morning.
      Reckons they won’t/can’t take retrospective action which is why they’ve given them the two year ban.
      They will have an asterisk against all their trophies since 2012.

      So the way it stands at the moment with this ban is city win the carabao cup teams in 6th and 7th will be in europa league and if city or others in the top 5 win the FA cup, team in 8th will also be in the europa cup.

      They have left wriggle room for the Court of Arbitration of Sport...aka..CAS. As City have appealed so Uefa won't explain or give full disclosure of the punishment untill the appeal process is over. The Premier League will also defer untill the CAS has ruled on the appeal.

      Think it hinges on exaggeration of fee's from sponsorship deals or whatever but City must've known they were sailing close to the wind as they were already fined in 2014 for more or less the same misdemeanor.

      Think the ban will be reduced to 1 year and the Premier League will bottle it and issue some bullsh*t suspended points cop out.

      Didn't win it fair and square, played by a different set of rules in assembling their squad.

      But I wouldn't want the title either. Probably nothing will happen with past titles, but if anything you might see the title "vacated" which in the end doesn't really mean anything. But agreed, would not want to see us retroactively awarded the title.

      Basically, the whole charge is nonsense, and UEFA are just faking a charge to pretend that they are trying to act, whilst knowing that Man City will win the case... oh, and UEFA are scared of Man City's owners so.. all is well.  :roll:
