Yeah, I'm sure FSG want FFP enforced as you say, with our World Wide following and marketing potential, FSG thought would be one of the big players in Europe again if the likes of Man City & Chelsea cannot spend like they had been.

City are not a BIG club, they're certainly smaller in fanbase than Chelsea who've just had their ban upheld for a much lesser charge by FIFA!

As this rumbles on more and more PL Clubs will be onboard with the 12 clubs...we could see clubs overseas also getting involved voicing their concerns to UEFA and FIFA.

The whole process of loaning-out players should be banned in my opinion. That would go a long way to solving this problem.

Of course City are a big club, they have probably the best squad ever created in the PL and resources to build more, they have won lots of trophies recently, they have a hardcore fan base going back along time when they were not successful.

I live in Manchester and know a few Man City supporters, they support their team in good times and bad, when they were in division 3 and playing at Maine road.

They do not have the world wide fan base we have, but every year that grows as they win more trophies and bring the top players in from all over the world, similar to how Chelsea grew in the last 15 years. I travel quite abit and you see City shirts all over the world now, 10 years ago you hardly saw any outside Manchester.

The money in football is so big now, paying an agent or family a couple of 100,000's is nothing to guarantee bringing in the best players, look at Sancho, they sold him for about 8 million to Dortmund as he wanted to go, now they are talking 100 million! Chelsea have a whole industry flipping players.

We were banned from signing academy players a few years ago after we tapped up a kid from Stokes youth academy, we were lucky not to get a full transfer ban, allot of clubs are doing similar I bet.

You are right, Chelsea sell more shirt than us now and City will get there soon while we keep on building

A 10 point deduction would be a nice way to punish them!

If we win the PL, I would prefer we do it on the patch, if City were docked points it wouldn't feel like we earned it.

I don't know What they did exactly, but if it helped them winning the league then I would have no qualms about them getting points deducted.

Yeah, I guess so, I think the main headline I have seen is that their sponsorship deals were artificially inflated deals and Sheikh Mansour owned companies sponsoring City and buying image the rites.

The funny thing is all the details are in emails that were hacked, explaining it all:

https://www.standard.co.uk/sport/footbal...s-a4087061.html

so it's not like they can say its hearsay or misunderstandings.

No doubt La Liga will be wading in with their opinions, as they have been hugely critical of Man City and feel threatened.
