im surprised its taken this long compared to the Bosman,maybe its finacial or like i said in another post clubs may have been afraid to take them on incase of becoming UEFA's next victim, at the end of the day all UEFA do is run an over hyped cup competition i'd love city to withdraw from it and make a mockery of UEFA,would it bother you? it wouldnt me, walk off the pitch against real after their little tune and refund the fans this would be the best statement ever IMOTbh, even though it initially looks bad for City, I must say I'm pleased by this because I wanted to see UEFA and FFP challenged first time round (even though 2014 circumstances were different).
I'm not sure it's even from a City fan's perspective but purely as a fan of the game who abhors the concept of certain clubs having bigger caps than others on spending in a supposedly fair competition.
That's not to say we'll necessarily see a challenge of FFP (for a number of reasons) but it's long overdue we fought our corner.
How do we know they offered us a fine but no ban Marvin?Ask yourself why would City turn down an offer of a nominal fine from UEFA unless we were very confident of the outcome.
Remember we have already been to CAS and may well have some insight into the outcome.
We should be worried but hopeful.
It is possible that UEFA knew that their case was lost and hence tried to negotiate a reduced settlement but as City wouldn't take it they went for the nuclear option...at least that way they say well we did our best? There were delays you recall to the hearing / announcement. Almost as if UEFA were left with no alternative.
Probably complete rubbish! ?
either they have some serious shit on us or the guy running the show at UEFA is a complete bellend,il go with the laterPrestwich Blue. What’s the story here? Looks like they’re really going for it.
