Spot on mate. @Prestwich_Blue has called this right from the start. He should be awarded freedom of Bluemoon for at least a week.PB for City and Swiss Ramble for European football are tops when it comes to understanding how football finances work. No one is close to them. I deal with financial statements, accounting pronouncements and public disclosures in filings daily and write equity research for a living (I cover an industry unrelated to sport in the States). Their analysis is top notch, thorough, detailed, as unbiased as can be expected. Journos who know shit about how financials even work can't hold a candle to either of them, which is why they've fucked this whole thing up while City and PB have been vindicated. Lazy fucks who don't understand the details and don't do their homework anyhow.
Colin's held our hands collectively through this whole thing in a way both me as a fan and me as a finance guy can doubly appreciate.
