    Will Pep extend his contract?

    His worst defeat at Bayern was in 2013/4. Having lost the first leg of the semi-final 1-0 away at Real, they suffered a 4-0 reverse at home in the second leg.

    Media Thread - 2019/20

    In the print version, there were two names at the top with his stated first. Perfectly reasonable to infer he led on the story in the light of that. Absolutely no excuse for him whatsoever if Byline Times have it right.

    Media Thread - 2019/20

    Funnily enough, after I excoriated Conn the other day for his dismal efforts a while back when given a big news story, I saw he had a joint byline today on a front page 'exclusive'. It related to a government procurement issue in the context of Covid. Unfortunately, independent outlet Byline...

    CAS judgement: UEFA ban overturned, City exonerated (report out p603)

    Well, it's been brewing ever since I observed the nauseating, hysterical, hyperbolic glee with which the football press responded to the original Der Spiegel stories based on the Football Leaks materials. I've been waiting ever since to have my say once the matter was properly disposed of, a...

    CAS judgement: UEFA ban overturned, City exonerated (report out p603)

    I haven't been able to post my views since publication of the report. I'll also face difficulties in posting for some time to come (this is a one-off contribution and I won't be able to respond to replies to it). But the conclusion to that article, especially the closing paragraphs, is the...

    CAS judgement: UEFA ban overturned, City exonerated (report out p603)

    I see they face Boro at home this evening in the final game of the season. Looking at the table, if they win that match then they stay up even with a nine-point deduction. But with such a deduction, if they draw they'll be relying on Charlton and Luton both losing to keep them safe and if they...

    CAS judgement: UEFA ban overturned, City exonerated (report out p603)

    A part of the issue for Wednesday as I understand it (which is based entirely on reading coverage of it in The Athletic, who have a dedicated SWFC correspondent) is not only the validity of the transaction but the timing of it. The sale took place during the 2018/9 accounting period but was...

    CAS judgement: UEFA ban overturned, City exonerated (report out p603)

    You made a gracious and flattering comment about a recent post of mine. This allows me to return the compliment, as it's truly excellent.

    CAS judgement: UEFA ban overturned, City exonerated (report out p603)

    The best way to combat Tebas would be for us to find a way to sign Messi. It would boil vast amounts of piss anyway, of course, but in particular it would finish that vile fascist twat once and for all, because he'd spontaneously combust at the prospect of us enticing asway the jewel in La...

    Salty reactions from other fans and the media

    The idea that the CAS ruling somehow demonstrates that FFP is finished is hysterical nonsense. Why should the overriding principles of FFP be affected by the outcome of what's in effect a narrow accounting dispute in which it's been in effect established to the satisfaction of an arbitral...

    Media Thread - 2019/20

    As I said in a tweet this morning, any PL execs who are "stunned", as claimed by the tweet in the post you quoted, that City prevailed at CAS aren't fit to hold the jobs they currently occupy. The piece in The Athletic by LFC cheerleader James Pearce about City's "escape" threatening Liverpool's...

    CAS judgement: UEFA ban overturned, City exonerated (report out p603)

    The whole of your post is absolutely true, regrettably, and the bolded point gets to the heart of it. People have made up their minds that City cheated so now they have no interest in the details of the case. Forget that we were punished for past breaches and entered into a settlement/reporting...

    Salty reactions from other fans and the media

    Only saw this post on Tuesday morning and it wouldn't display as the relevant Twitter account is apparently now suspended. Out of interest, what was it? Yes, he's popped up, and very entertainingly so - it's absolutely faithful to his trademark mix of comical bias and a laughable lack of...

    Media Thread - 2019/20

    Shows you the pathetic nature of the media coverage of this that a financially and legally illiterate ex-footballer whose allegiance lies with a bitter current rival is called in by Sky to comment on the outcome of a case before an arbitral tribunal that involved complex financial regulatory...
