City can be excused for being highly mistrustful of UEFA and their motives but they simply cannot be excused for ignoring the opinions of the vast majority of not only their own supporters but fans of football full stop.

We don't owe it on paper, correct. But you think Mansour piled in his cash because hes a big City fan?

Sheikh Mansour is a businessman, he sees an opportunity to return hundreds of millions and eventually billions on his investment and he is going to turn it down?
He already had that return in the capital value of his asset. He doesn’t need a further income stream that he wouldn’t ever notice.

And yes, he should fucking turn it down if he wants to have fans paying money into the club and attending games going forward.

They have 12 teams, anyone else invited already knows the outcry coming. How do they invite 5 teams each year from Europe as their leagues will be so against it. I see them changing it and inviting teams like RiverPlate etc making teams trek around the planet.

He piled in his money because he now owns a football club worth 3 billion pounds + and already sold of parts for 100's of millions. Also add to that the money he is making in east manchester with their investments and that shows he wasn't doing it for love of City hes doing a sa brilliant business man. City as a club as far as im aware owe him nothing.
Yeah and now he has a chance to make even more and hes going to turn it down and run back to the organisation that quite literally dragged his name, his investment and even his own country through the mud in court and in the media for the past decade, I don't think so.

This is what people like Sheikh Mansour do, they go in and they tear down the very fabric of what existed before it and flip it to make it beneficial for them. Hate the game not the player.

I remember when he bought billions of shares in Barclays in the middle of a global crisis, that is pretty crass, benefiting off the world economy whilsts its on its knees. Made him a fortune in profit and City probably benefited off the back of it, its how these things go.
