    Whinging like only rich, cheating, spoilt bastards can whinge. There's a vacancy for an English team in sky blue to compete in Europe for a couple of seasons after this one....

    Bet it means manure will get in by back door. But Sheff Utd and wolves fans will also be getting excited

    That means they won’t attract the best players.

    Money on Liverpool for next 3 league titles.

    Cov the season after that.

    They play in light blue, they've been in the third division and they won't be playing in Europe next year.

    Absolutely. There is no way Man City are the only ones. The amount of money PSG spent and continue to spend on Neymar and Mbappe is crazy.

    This is the crazy thing. No issue with Man City having the book thrown at them but no way that others like PSG aren't doing exactly the same thing.

    Maybe helps that PSG owner is on UEFA executive Committee and owns Bein which has huge broadcast deals with UEFA.
    Also PSG have a sponsorship worth 110m euros with Qatar tourist authority. Independently valued at being worth around 5m euros a year but UEFA chose to ignore it.
    Nothing changes with the likes of Fifa, UEFA all sold out a long time ago

    It’s bollocks, they have to be consistent with PSG and Madrid have been doing the same for years. Would love them to win it now just to make a farce of the following years with no defending champions. Hate the tournament, everything that is wrong with football, money and greed

    No issues with Man City being punished. They shouldn't be the only ones though.

    Maybe this is the start...

    Worth noting that this has happened before to other clubs...

    City are in trouble here.

    Apparently a points deduction is on the way from the Premier League.

    Needs to be a minimum of 10 to show the PL take breaking financial rules seriously!
