Interesting non answer about the buzzer stuff .. no evidence because no one provided any first hand knowledge .. what should have been asked of Manfred was “ were the players or coaches directly asked about the buzzer allegations .. or were you relying on the players to volunteer this information”
Old friend Lars Andersen touches on the vengeance aspect of what is about to unfold in his article in the Athletic ..
Andersen excoriates Jim...
Of course .. but FFP was completely new when Henry bought the club .. so it’s real effects would not have been obvious at the time. It seemed pretty obvious, after a couple of years at the helm that Henry & Co. we’re relative neophytes at running a football club. So it’s highly likely they...
Excellent write up in the Athletic on City’s shenanigans
According to that, unlike Chelsea’s transfer ban (which was FIFA imposed), no penalties will be applied until the appeal plays...
I would be shocked if they are still below the LT a year from now. The Sox have never been shy about exceeding it in the past .. and it’s going to be incredibly difficult to compete at the highest levels AND staying under.
I think he just meant he foresaw Liverpool being able to complete with the likes of City and ManuU etc because he thought there was a level playing field due to FFP .. he was, of course wrong. It has been more or less inafective.
One other side effect is the very strong likelihood of the Premier League imposing a points penalty ..
The question is, when would this penalty be imposed? One assumes this...
That video gave a nice easy explanation of the case .. however, it’s interesting in that UEFA wanted to kick City out of the CL a few years ago but backed off out of fear of endless lawsuits. So what has changed ? Guessing the damning nature of the Football Leaks documents , combined with Abu...
I think the accusation is they inflated the value of some sponsorships .. notably from companies owned by other family members (going on memory). They pushed club into the black .. thus allowing them to pass the FFP rules which are designed to prevent clubs from buying championships
They will appeal of course .. don't know how long that process is but it has to be a few months ..
One would think, at best an appeal would shorten the penalty to a single season .. so you have to think they are out of the CL in 2020/21 at the very least.
As mentioned - bye bye Pep.
As for the...
I suppose Pillar is adequate as a 4th OF .. and he always leads the league in showboat fake diving catches per 162 .. so that’s something
I don’t mean to harp on this but it used to drive me crazy watching BJ games .. you’ll see ..
Although I think I understood the Garciaparra and Pedro departures .. Fisk was a total fuck up And Tony C ? He was traded after a terrific season in 1970. Little did we know he did that while being basically blind in one eye.
