So City appear to be mired in cheating the so called ‘FFP’. Infantini apparently helped City avoid a CL ban the last time they were caught out. It’s such a relief FIFA have reformed themselves. World football is in safe hands.

Poch had some beef with the Tottenham fans last night after they booed him for making a sub. It's the first time in 4 years they've been unhappy with him, which is fucking remarkable in the modern game.

All is not well at Spurs, now's the time to approach him. I'll be fucked off if he ends up going to Madrid and we didn't even talk to the cunt.

Liverpool have reportedly been put up for sale by FSG

Weird, because they've just become one of the best teams in the Prem and thus are probably more valuable than they have been for 25 years. The yank scum also own Boston Red Sox who've been making losses. But still, why sell one of the most valuable assets in sport when they could use the money they generate to fill in the losses.

Anyway will be interesting to see who wants to buy em - and Chelsea. Is owning an english football team still fashionable amongst the super rich.

“The UAE’s enormous investment in Manchester City is one of football’s most brazen attempts to ‘sportswash’ a country’s deeply tarnished image through the glamour of the game,” said Amnesty International’s Gulf researcher Devin Kenney. “As a growing number of Manchester City fans will be aware, the success of the club has involved a close relationship with a country that relies on exploited migrant labour and locks up peaceful critics and human rights defenders.”

Der Spiegel has reported further on the unusual workings of City, detailing among other things a project called Longbow whereby the club allegedly sold the players’ image rights to an organisation funded by City’s owner, Sheikh Mansour. There is also the matter of the former manager Roberto Mancini who led City to their first Premier League title in 2012 and played a crucial part in their rise to Europe’s football elite. On signing for the club he allegedly not only agreed an annual salary there but also a further, more lucrative basic deal as a consultant with Al Jazira, a club also controlled by City’s owner.
In terms of PR the Mansour family buying City was a brilliant move, it's brought em relentless positive press amidst all the humans rights violations. It's completely transformed their image tbf. Now when you think of the UAE and Mansours the first thing you think of is football and City, not torture, murder, oppression etc.

Chelsea face the threat of a two-year transfer ban following a Fifa investigation into their signing of foreign under-18 players, including former striker Bertrand Traore.

That'll be fun

That looked like a fucking great game of attacking football. Dortmund are playing great stuff again. They seemed a bit overawed by Bayern but still ended up nicking it.
