The comparison to Amazon is daft. Amazon is also a horrendous company whose owner should be hanged. And you can build success without being sportwashed, with a good coach, a good plan and clever investment. There's plenty of examples.

Mad how fans defend City and their ilk tbf. Not just from a competitive angle, but you're also defending sportwashing process to deflect from human rights abuses. Why would you.

Class assessment of City's ban https://www.theguardian.com/football/20 ... lying-down

Does a regime serially defying a United Nations arms embargo in Libya – according to the UN’s own reports – strike you as the sort that places a high premium on bureaucratic process? Does the family that bought itself the world’s largest super-yacht – a $600m behemoth two-thirds the size of the Titanic and reportedly equipped with its own missile defence system – strike you as the sort to take a swingeing punishment with humility and good grace?

The word is City are stockpiling a cache of inflammatory evidence against other clubs, in anticipation of an epic fight. Perhaps, armed with a battery of lawyers and accountants, they will get their ban overturned. Perhaps, as some of the more bellicose voices insist, they will even destroy the apparatus of football as we know it,

Good, let them go crazy, they’ll just burn all their bridges in the game.
