I'm not interested in why there is so much hostility to our club and I don't think our club should become involved in a battle fought out in the pages of such weighty publications as the Mail, the Express and the Sun. David Conn considers himself the voice of financial purity but he counts for nothing in this epic. City are taking on American corporatism and sporting dishonesty where it matters - in the courts, and everyone will find that the law is not interested in what Gill, Woodward, Henry, Kroenke and Uncle Tom Wenger and all want but in what the law requires. And whatever City have on other clubs will not be sordid gossip but hard evidence to be used in court, and our lawyers - the best in the world - would not want it spilled across the pages of the gutter press. City are, I believe, involved in a lengthy process but one they approach with unshakeable confidence. In my opinion stage one will be in CAS to get the UEFA verdict quashed. Regardless of CAS's decision stage 2 will be to have the verdict of 2014 declared unenforceable and FFP unlawful. Stage 3 is to pursue UEFA for damages and to show that FFP was n ever a well intentioned plan to promote financial stability in the game but a conspiracy to cement the place of certain, named clubs at the top of the game and enable them to monopolise the financial benefits of success. This will identify the cartel and lay them open to swingeing fines and damages. It will also spell the end of UEFA and its replacement by a body which is "fit for purpose". City have no time to waste on the grubby little rantings of papers which sold their souls to the cartel years ago. We have just the legal teams to achieve all this.
Wow. Next, take on the world. Liddl Ciddy eh? Could become a roaring lion.

Scumbags. Every one of those eight clubs. Sheer scumbags.
one of them made up a fantasy stadium and got rumbled on financial fair play.

One of them is built on debt and hides its accounts in the Cayman Islands.

One of them went into administration and left local suppliers out of pocket.

One of them got a transfer ban and has an owner who can’t enter the country.

what a lovely bunch

Its Guinness time any day of the week.

Samuel won’t have made the story up mate.
Long time lurker on BM , but only just registered so hi to all.

The thing I find strange at the moment is the silence/lack of reaction to the Mail story on the Grauniad. They have been vehemently opposed to our owners , and our success, perhaps they are hiding something.
