Now hopefully the punishment is proper. Talk of 1 year is laughable, would be a total waste of time. 5 years should be the starting point at the absolute best case for City, especially as they still refuse to admit their guilt.

If they ban them next season, does that mean we go to CL in the 5th place??

Put your foot down Uefa, don't take no prisoners, ban them now.

They’re getting booted out of Europe,
But no one gives a shit,
Because they’re European nobodies,
Empty blue seats in their pit.

Their owner pumped in billions,
Trying to buy the big eared cup,
He even hired baldy Pep,
But he went and fucked it up.

Allez, allez, allez.

"Manchester City Football Club is disappointed, but regrettably not surprised, by the sudden announcement of the referral to be made by the CFCB IC Chief Investigator Yves Leterme.

The leaks to media over the last week are indicative of the process that has been overseen by Mr. Leterme.

Manchester City is entirely confident of a positive outcome when the matter is considered by an independent judicial body.

The accusation of financial irregularities remains entirely false and the CFCB IC referral ignores a comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence provided by Manchester City FC to the Chamber.

The decision contains mistakes, misinterpretations and confusions fundamentally borne out of a basic lack of due process and there remain significant unresolved matters raised by Manchester City FC as part of what the Club has found to be a wholly unsatisfactory, curtailed, and hostile process."

We should complain, our place in CL would have been taken up by a bunch of cheats who broke the rules, this is no different to Olympians who finish 4th, behind a drug cheat.

Stop rewarding cheats Uefa, clean up the game.

They have gone eerily quiet. Which means they're either burying their heads in the sand and aren't going to do anything about it. Or they're still in the process of building a case against City.

Same here, but fuck it. We got 97pts with a squad built legally (tapping up of Virgil aside ;) ) whereas they built a squad that got 100 and 98pts with money they didn't have. Man City without fiddling could not have afforded the likes of Silva, Fernandinho, Aguero, Mahrez etc

At least be men grow some balls and admit you're wrong, issue an apology and be done with it. I have huge respect for Kompany off the field as he does some incredible work for less fortunate in Manchester and shows a lot of character, if he at least doesn't come out with some kind of apology I will be massively shocked.

All of this 'oh we didn't know it was about this or that or actually it was referencing another battering' is beyond pathetic from their club.

Vincent Kompany has no say in their PR, which is entirely based on discrediting their critics rather than discrediting their critics' allegations.

You've got to hope their aggressive stance to this backfires.

You do wonder if behind the scenes some of the other bigger clubs are (rightfully) putting pressure on UEFA to investigate this. For all City's money they probably hold very little sway at UEFA. Teams like Madrid, Barcelona, United, Bayern, Juventus and ourselves are obviously seen as much bigger players on the continent and where a lot of the club power has resided for the last 20-30 years.

I think one maybe two years, a monetary fine and more stringent checks on their accounts going forward would suffice.

That's where theyre mistaken, had we finished 4th and won Europa, then only 4 teams in CL. The fifth place only comes into place if the winner of Europa/CL finishes outside top 4. There is no scenario in which United get into CL, they would have needed to finish 5th ahead of us.

Would be fucking boss to see UEFA strip away all the owner funded ‘sponsorship’ money and see their revenue half (for FFP purposes), as well as get a grip on how they fiddle the wages.

That would screw them more than anything else as their wages would outstrip revenue.

Cheers mate. I know you wouldn't be using it lightly and it was probably the hypocrisy angle you were going for.

I just think by us using that phrase it takes away from what it aimed at. And how hurtful and disrespectful the connotations of that phrase are. There are certain things that opposition fans say that will be water off a duck's back to me. That phrase isn't one of them and is completely unacceptable for any opposition fan (or player) to use it.

They need a transfer ban as well as expulsion from the CL for two seasons. With no chance of appeal. Won't happen like, but that would really fuck them up.

Lets say they get a 12 month ban (after years of legal wrangling no doubt). The horse has already bolted. They pumped huge sums in at the start. If you had told the owners back then that you can get away with that, thus building what they need to be successful, and ultimately it would result in a 12 month ban from the CL then they would have taken it.

If they are found guilty of breaking the rules, somewhat brazenly, then 12 months is nothing.
