winding down in life.
On his Twitter page he's cry about the price we are paying for Ake,

"£41million for Nathan Ake? This will only inflate transfer fees and wages for everyone else. How about running football for fans instead of oil sheikhs and oligarchs?"
do they not see that we WANT to inflate fees? costing the cartel is pay back.

German paper Der Spiegel claim to have evidence that Manchester City LIED to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to escape their Champions League ban - but City say it's just 'a cynical attempt to publicly re-litigate'
Oooh some more innuendo emails (which proves to not be evidence of anything)

Please please please let them tell some whopping lies that can be indicated as causing brand damage. I want us to have these ****s.

Only fools can believe UEFA are not triggered by the elite

There is an episode of Only Fools And Horses — The Class of ’62 — in which the bent copper, Slater, organises a school reunion.

He’s newly released from Parkhurst and wants to make amends for his wrongs. Initially, his old class-mates are reluctant. Over time, he’s extorted, used and framed them all.

Yet seeing Slater now as a pitiful, remorseful figure, the sentimental Del Boy is the first to crack and join him at the bar. One by one, the group relent and order drinks. Only Trigger and Boycie are holding out. Until…

Trigger: Yeah, I’ll have a beer.

Manchester City have stood strong in the face of UEFA and will not bow down to them

Boycie: How can you drink with Slater? That’s the man who stitched you up with them knocked-off Green Shield stamps and sent you away for 18 months.

Trigger: I know. But when I came out I got an electric blanket and a radio. (Winks.)

That’s pretty much how a number of observers think Manchester City should have treated the UEFA investigation.

The source material might have been hacked, the charges might have been historic and former employees of their major rivals might have been part of the independent process, but City should have co-operated and come quietly, meekly accepted their banishment like good little boys and settled for life on football’s periphery.

Maybe, some years from now, they might have clawed their way back into the Europa League, or some UEFA satellite competition, and been content with the game’s equivalent of Trigger’s electric blanket and radio.

Always providing they were allowed in. Not so long ago, the current head of the European Clubs Association, Andrea Agnelli of Juventus, advocated that Roma should qualify for the Champions League at the expense of Atalanta, due to their historic success. Atalanta are currently third to Roma’s fifth, 11 points ahead with one Serie A game remaining. So where would those ideals leave a club like City —forever on the outside because Europe belongs to who? Manchester United? Arsenal?

It didn’t take long for the established elite to make their displeasure known after City’s victory at the Court of Arbitration. They sense the current UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin is more concerned by Bayern Munich’s eight Bundesliga titles in a row and Juventus’s nine in Italy, than he is by the danger of new investors. Before this current run, no team had won the German title more than three times in succession. In Italy, the biggest winning streak was five.

What is going on in Europe right now is fantastically unhealthy. These are major leagues, traditionally very competitive.

The Premier League club chose not to roll over after receiving their ban from European football


+8
City won't back away in their fight to muscle their way into Europe's established clubs

This is not BATE Borisov’s 13 straight titles in Belarus. It is also a direct result of Financial Fair Play rules as good as written by a cabal, so that the only legitimate sources of investment are theirs.

If a club can only spend what it generates then Manchester United and Liverpool, Real Madrid and Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus will always have the most money in their domestic leagues. Here’s Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on the future. ‘When we passed FFP 10 years ago, it was said you must not spend more money than you earn, this must again become the starting point.’

Note that ‘we’. Naive folk may think of FFP as UEFA’s rule but it is steered by an elitist faction. And in which formal meeting was this decided? It is sometimes asked. There wasn’t one. There doesn’t have to be one.

UEFA’s head of legal worked for Manchester United; one of the independent adjudicators who decided on City’s ban was a former chief executive of Liverpool; David Gill who regularly hosts in the Manchester United directors’ suite is a UEFA vice-president and treasurer; the European Clubs Association president is from Juventus; the previous one was from Bayern Munich.

These men no more need an official minuted gathering to carve up football, than a husband and wife need one to decide on dinner. They live in the same house. The meeting is permanent. City wouldn’t bow in the face of it. And this is what frightens them all.

I was wondering if he was going to deliver, and he has, well done Martin.
