    Well Liverpool never admitted guilt to anything despite paying us £1m in compensation

    This is correct, it was only last week they stated during their terrible quarterly figures that they had £90m cash at bank and a £150m lending facility from Bank of America if they needed it.

    In the space of just a week, they have been forced to draw down £140m of it. I know they are pissed that it has come out and media are speculating it is for transfers.

    It's not - they need it to run the club - just as we are able to rely on £400m sat on deposit from the Silver Lake deal.

    Difference being, that's our own money.

    I feel that City will certainly have contingency plans if things go against us and Gill will have other ways to help United if we are still in CL.

    I agree City will not negotiate. If UEFA uphold a ban and fine of any sort my opinion is City will immediately lodge an appeal to the European courts and that is when everything will come out. The CAS hearing is something City have to do at this stage but if they are not exonerated then it will be a long dirty fight. Also in my opinion fans of clubs other than Livarpool United Arsenal and Spurs see this for what it is, a stitch up, unfortunately the media dont comment on this as most of them support those clubs or chase clicks with positive stories on them and negative stories on City. If you look at the comments section on articles relating to City in newspapers the people keeping the narrative going are mainly Livarpool United and Arsenal fans, because they are scared of the truth that City are a well run well organised club who are here to stay.

    I agree, virtually every business in every sector of business including United is working for cashflow and not for profit.

    Newcastle fans must surely now understand as well. The media is doing everything it can to undermine the Saudi takeover with one spurious reason after another. This simply would not be happening if, as previously predicted, the Saudis were trying to purchase United.

    Yes mate, you don't even have to drill down too far re United...

    They miss out on a Champions League spot and Adidas hold back £25m on next season.

    United have in the last six months handed improved deals of £375k a week to De Gea, £300k a week to Rashford, that's before they again now add back the £12m they were saving paying half of Sanchez's wages.

    Nobody is going near Pogba's valuation or in position to improve his own £250k a week.

    Without season-ticket money, without corporate money, without automatic cup scheme money, they are fucked.

    And that's before you even factor in a global financial depression.
