    How is this money dissapearing? Magic? The club would still be sold and still have assets. If they can guarantee they cannot leave the club in debt so what. Let's not pretend City are the reason the market is inflated.

    So have you not seen what Liverpool fans say about City over and over with no reprimand. Again they didn't give a toss when they were not up against them. When they were spending and fighting United or Chelsea, all was good. Now it's against them with all their pure money earned from helping orphans, it's slavery comments etc etc.

    Ah of course. That makes perfect sense why you should make that type of comment.

    And actually no, i haven't seen what Liverpool fans say about City over and over again. Do you mean on this forum or are you expecting me to be aware of every single comment that occurs on and off the internet?

    In summary, you're better than that (i hope) so don't bother speaking rubbish just because others do it.

    City have won the appeal, there will be no european ban. Knew it. The fine is reduced too, down to 10m

    That is outrageous! They must’ve used VAR for that decision.

    So many brown envelopes were involved. People forget just how corrupt footballing bodies are. There is a reason we are playing a world cup in a desert in two years.

    Might as well scrap the FFP rules; have they ever actually been enforced?

    The fine is another joke, said it for years the fines they had out are pathetic it's pocket change to big clubs.

    UEFA barely had any respect from any one but this is another nail in there coffin for how useless they are.

    Should of had enough information to ensure CAS couldn't of over turned anything.
