Respecting for killing the beautiful game? Respecting for being a cheat? We all know very well how they bend the rules and make FFP a fool. Of course they can come from 2 goals behind and win games because they will bring on one of their 100 million pound player to change things and it will more likely to work. Absolutely no credit should be given to them for having filthy money and buying players. Anyone who loves football should not say things like ' I give City credit' , credit for WHAT???
