Did I just read that FFP is effectively dead for the super rich clubs with City facing a huge. 9m fine

We couldn't afford to pay that fine yet City can cheat and get a tiny fine. Hilarious and ridiculous but unsurprising when you think about it. Fxxxxx Joke. So city can continue to cheat and buy trophies 👍.

{Ed002's Note - Why write this ill-informed nonsense that simply embarrasses yourself? I think the "fucking joke" is on you.}

Agree0 Disagree0

It is what it is SY mate, there really are two sides to every story mate and the media and those with their own agenda will always paint City as the bad guys.
What do me you and those not privy to all the facts really know beyond what we've been told to believe by those with a vested interest in Cities downfall.
There are those who point fingers and complain and those who simply find a different way of thier own (Liverpool)

It reads that the city have been let off on a technicality - what am I missing

{Ed002's Note - They were not let off on a technicality - you simply don't understand. You don't get it so leave it.}

All I can say is, it's a good job we didn't finish 5th SY mate :-)

Cmon ed

You really belive that city did not breach FFP look at there wage bill and fan base. They have been buying trophies for years.
How can you not see that.

{Ed047's Note - spanner it’s honestly not a case of someone not seeing it mate or about believing anything.

If ed02 tells you something that’s because it’s the way it truly is, not made up, not guesstimations and equally if he says leave it well alone then likewise do that.

Thanks mate.

I can never for the life of me understand why fellas come on this site so frequently looking for the Eds, particularly Ed002 on this page, knowledge or inside info and then when they take the time to give it to us you challenge it because it doesn’t suit your predisposition on the subject.
You’ve been told there’s more to it than you are privy to and that the case against City wasn’t strong enough to stand up, probably even in the first instance it was handed out.
But you are choosing to believe otherwise and that City appealed because they thought they could find a loophole and exploit it legally or financially and now your conclusion is that Europe’s governing body are taking a 10M bribe in front of the whole world so that City can continue to ‘buy trophies’?
Would it not seem more plausible that there was some evidence of foul play but that the original punishment was excessive based on what they had and that a 10M fine is more suitable based on what they can prove?
Would that not make more sense than pissing off the Ed’s and having us go without their feedback because they can’t be bothered anymore?
Do us all a favour and take on the information as it’s intended and if you feel you know more start your own site instead of trying to sabotage it for the rest of us.

Haha shambles

Couldn’t have put it better myself.

Sorry Shambles, not sure if directed at me but my post was an opinion on a banter site. I got shot down because I didn’t “understand” the findings which I read a number of times and my understanding was backed up by articles I’ve since read as well as pundit opinions. So I asked for more clarity. I never asked to be ridiculed but I did ask to be informed.

I then stopped asking - what’s your point?

15 Jul 2020 15:58:49
No Sy it’s not aimed at you personally and not an attempt to ridicule.
I’m just trying to look at it from the Ed’s perspective on this site. They obviously have other things that could occupy their time so when we get feedback, feedback we are requesting, I think we should take it on board. If we know better we wouldn’t be on asking for more or better information.
Iv been on this site years now and read other fan pages also as sometimes it’s more revealing as the Ed’s might share info more relevant to us on other buying or selling clubs interest in relation to players with us of that we are interested in or competing against. Iv found piecing together the Ed’s info far more accurate and interestsing than an online click bait article or something in the sun paper or on Twitter. What’s very common here throughout the fan pages is a minority of people challenging the information or retrospectively coming on weeks or months later after developments have changed or not gone in an anticipated direction, and calling out the Ed’s for previously accurate information provided not coming to pass for whatever reason.
The information here is given matter of fact and not embellished as it’s nearly always impartial and fact based, in fact you will quite often have the Eds, Ed002 in particular, refuse to be drawn on questions that he cannot accurately predict or be proven correct on.
So what annoys me personally is the all too frequent response to clearly accurate fact based good information where the Ed’s get second guessed after going to the bother of giving a timely or detailed response. If it were me each time dealing with it I would be less and less inclined to bother my arse sharing to these fan pages and I’m long enough on here to actually see the Ed’s boycott certain pages because of a small few sabotaging it for the rest of us. I am by no means accusing you of this at all mate. I’m simple saying let’s just appreciate the info we get back when we get it and if you like, sure, hold it up against what facts you might know yourself, but let’s not second guess them against tabloid or online hit pieces or click bait.
