Well if you read todays UK Rags Sky Sports panellists discuss if Liverpool should target KdB, Real Madrid should be offering 180 million for Sterling and I guess in the coming days more vultures circling the Citeh squad.

One has to wonder how all of this came about and if other clubs were looked at regarding FFP.
Are the Chavs really fronted by Russian Mafia monies? What about the FSG cartel and Liverpool? Are Arsenal squeaky clean and whoever else.

They can have Sterling for 180 million for sure.

Good job Spain doesn't have the peseta anymore as that bid would be about 75 quid.

No, I suggest the FFP will be fine, as this case isn't about FFP itself, but about City lying in the previous investigation about how much of their funding complies with FFP. This is about City being found out, and hinges solely on the admissibility of the evidence. City and many of their supporters want to get away with cheating and lying, which is why City are being banned from the CL.

As I said previously, I welcome City appealing this. And the CAS will only be ruling on this, not on the illegality of FFP.

Nice one, thanks Villa, a much needed away win!

Thanks to City too, we’ll take that CL spot if you don’t want it.

I expected you to say even if Citeh are kicked out of the CL we have confidence that Spurs would make the top 4 anyway. Now as a Yernited fan we are hoping they get kicked out and we sneak in by getting the 5th spot as we aint making top 4.
Great game to watch could have been more goals by both teams.

I do have confidence, just wanted to rile Mike up a bit more.

It was a great game to watch and a little bit of luck on our side again. Don't know what is up with us at the moment, it is all very unspursy......

Well if Sir Alex was still in charge he would be calling them those cheating noisy neighbours. Banning them for 2 years is only like saying "Look you live in a council house and we are evicting some of your tenants as their behaviour is not acceptable" After 2 years we will allow you to have more tenants but you won't be able to recoup the 170 million you have lost. Just behave yourselves and learn from your neighbours on the banks of the River Irwell.

well the first task for MBS must be to sell Joelinton for 20p and buy any other striker in the world after today's game.

I thought young Saka did well, most impressive.
