- Wherever I lay my hat that's my home
The Liverpool defender handled it after taking out Sterling too - so a pen on two counts.
The game should have ended 2-2 (if pen converted), yet we lost 3-0.
The game should have ended 3-0 to us because the Dippers should have been disqualified and banned for another half decade for the coach attack.
Exactly... and we should have been going in at h/t in the 2nd leg 2-0 up (4-2) with 2 away goals.
This was the main event for me too. It should definitely have been 2-0 in the second leg at the break, with Guardiola still on the touchline.
The good news is City have now joined the elite group despite all attempts to stop our progress. These figures, coupled with FFP, just expose even more how much of a protectionist organisation UEFA is. The system now works in our favour but it is still corrupt as far as I am concerrned. Cartel clubs like Barcelona are allowed to run up debts of almost £800m and still try and pick off the best young players from other clubs.
Interesting conclusions about UEFA competition, the way they share the prize money and the consequences in shaping a non "fair" and non "competitive" environment.
Nah Hoeness or anyone with anyone with political sway with the Bavarian Rags is a ****.Having read what he said in German (I can't play the original interview video) I suspect the UK press are spinning it as critical of CAS, especially those outlets saying things like "Former Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has criticized the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) for overturning Manchester City's two-year Champions League ban."
He hasn't criticised CAS. it's criticism of UEFA for acting against us with "no substantive evidence". My translation: "If the CAS judges thought UEFA had acted badly there's no surprise at the outcome."
"Obviously UEFA's reasoning was just weak."
I can't see a basis in the original for "we must do with Manchester City" except for the possibility of meeting them in the semi-final.
Don't blame Hoeness. It's our press again.
