I believe it was actually designed to stop Chelsea but they and Abramhovic sneaked in the door before the rules went live.. overnight he became an advocate (as he was then part of the clique)
yup , Martin Samuel mentioned this. It was actually keeping chelsea in mind .

He Couldn't have made it clearer that there are two factions within UEFA and the whole business is political. This has been blindingly obvious for months if not years. I wonder how this will be reported in the mainstream media in the UK. Are they going to call Soriano a liar? It was a great statement. Didn't give our hand away legally but dropped a couple of hand grenades. It does seem clear that UEFA have just ignored our defence. FFS is it really true that UEFA have built their whole case on a few stolen emails (out of context) in a German magazine that has subsequently been shamed (in a different case) for literally making up stories? And those emails were hacked by a man who is in jail and faces trial on 90 charges of hacking, extortion and fraud. Is that all they have got?
It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if that was all they had. The guy in charge of this from UEFA has previous for ignoring evidence that pointed away from his desired outcome (PSG sponsorship valuations). And if they didn't have anyone on their side who fully understood AD protocol, then HH was always going to be the City owner in their minds in those hacked emails. Media will just twist it as usual (and that has already started) but it does appear that City are very sure of their ground.

Well if Ferran and the top brass prove they have been deceitful it's the end for them, there can be no return. Would put us in a right fucking mess which doesn't bear thinking about.

Not in my lifetime.
As it is, there's something about our smug attitude last summer that makes me worry.
We all applauded Khaldoon's end of season interview, but amidst all his smiling rehearsed answers I don't recall him predicting this outcome.
Why would he? 2014 looked dead and buried at that point.

Would you rather him say: “Hee hee, we put one over on those conniving UEFA bastards?”

Micah is lovely, and a loyal City fan, but he's thick as shit. Sometimes it's quite hard listening to him get confused on the radio when just debating stuff with Chris Sutton and Ian Wright.

Maybe it's just being new to being in the media, but I wouldn't want him talking about FFP ever.
It's a pity Vinny is somewhat employed elsewhere
