I thought we were moving into an era of ‘financial fair play’?
How can any football club be allowed to go after more players when they have just reported annual losses of £51,000,000!?
On the morning that the Independent report that Manchester City are narrowly avoiding being banned from next year’s Champions League for their dodgy finances the BBC report that they are on the pull for two Porto players, one of whom is worth £35,000,000. I’m sure most clubs are just as bad in their own proportionate way but it really is unfair for the few clubs who balance the books.
Pellegrini seems to be doing a great job where others have fallen short but surely any silverware won by Manchester City is bought with money and not achieved through ability and application.
While I’m at it can I just vent about everyone referring to Manchester City as just ‘City’? If you didn’t notice Cardiff, Hull, Stoke, Swansea and Norwich also happen to be City clubs and also happen to play in the same league.
