Looking for Clues...
- Nov 16, 2016
This was discussed in the Bias thread, and there were people in there who argued that City had been punished, by being fined. Laughable.The difference is not just in the scale of the investment (as others have pointed out). It’s that the investment has broken the rules of the game, and while Chelsea and United have, as far as we know operated within the rules of FFP, City haven’t.
Saying we lost to a better team is hollow. I’d have no problem losing to a better team if that team played to the sane rules as us. City don’t, and their title win is tainted. One day the truth will out. Maybe one of the four footballing bodies currently investigating them will hammer them?
In the context of the season Liverpool were extremely unlucky... millimetres difference of goals going in, and goals denied. Poor decisions, penalties denied, Vincent Kompany etc etc.
But, no point in dwelling on that, for as long as City are allowed to manipulate the financial rules they will be champions. That is the sad reality.
I am more upset today than I was yesterday, more dissapointed, more questions to ask. Anyway, team did us all proud. Cant ask much more than that. YNWA.
