    Agreed. But I don't think the emails even say that. The one I've seen doesn't anyway.

    It says that the money due from Abu Dhabi companies must be deposited directly into City's account by each individual company. i.e. It mustn't be paid to ADUG, who then transfer a lump sum over to City along with equity investment.

    It sounds like whoever wrote that email had heard that the above was about to happen and he was reminding them that each payment must come direct from each sponsor's account.

    How that money actually got into those accounts is none of UEFA's business.

    I think she’s far more pro-active than many people give her credit for. The problem is we’re not holding that many cards. If you think we get a bad press now, it would be a million times worse if we started banning journalists.

    Blind optimism. You do realise we are City not PSG.

    I totally agree with you BUT I do kind of think that if we genuinely felt on the right side of the argument we should have contested this in court from the off. Instead we've just done our own thing, broken the rules and hoped we'd get away with it. I don't think we've covered ourselves in glory here and I'm pretty disappointed that an operation as slick as ours hasn't found a smarter way of dealing with this. Really hoping that on appeal this will reduced to one year (which I can deal with given next season will be quite transitional) and also that we go completely mental and tear down every other club we can. Plenty of other clubs are behaving in a very dodgy manner and I hope we make sure they're called out on it.

    One thing I am strugling with is the charge.

    Etihad have many investors from the UAE and obviously our owner is one, there is nothing fraudulant or corrupt about such investment and cetainly not illegal

    If etihad use some of their investments to them to fund our sponsorship, well that's their decission and shouldn't need to be declared in my opinion.

    So the only way uefa could know the money may have been partly from investmemts from the shiek could inly be found out through illegal means such as the hacking claims.

    So uefa are using illegal means and inuendo to make a case and charge us.

    Anyone defending uefa is defending illegal acts and collusion.

    This could smash football into pieces and can see a breakaway league forming and playing in a world supaleague. Leave the cartel clubs to their Micky mouse champs league , that the dippers and rags play in the premiership and play each other 38 times per season.
    That's have a better league , even at international level if they tried to say only players playing in the premiership can play for there country so be it. If it means all the world class players are playing in the breakaway league it will devalue the world cup as well.......

    I might be getting ahead of myself lol
