    Oz, sorry I’ve not replied sooner, yep the 2 point comment was about not being able to turn back the clock and apply old rules.

    Ferrari and Datsun (showing your age there) the Datsun would win long term as the Ferrari would spend half the time in the garage.

    However motorsport is a good analogy as the more money you have the faster you go, and the big teams Mercedes and Ferrari (Fiat) will get round any financial restrictions by using their core business to hide costs…..Pagan

    We are just lucky to have a very rich owner. BUT money has to be spent well.
    To get up towards the top AND stay there in short time…that needed huge investment.

    Strong words of defiance from Man City Chairman Al Mubarak against the various claims leveled at City by the Head of La Liga,one of which is his criticism of State owned Clubs.

    For the benefit of all UEFA need to put a full stop and a new paragraph behind all this sooner rather than later based on the Der Spiegel revelations and UEFA’s own investigations.

    City chairman spoke brilliantly well and everything he said was true, hypocrisy of the highest order rules in Spain. Not too mention Eufa and Fifa.

    Very true Rover Al Murbarak did speak very well and made a number of good points and true enough City haven’t broken any transfer records, haven’t signed the most expensive Goalkeeper, defender, midfield player or striker other Clubs have done that.

    But that’ss not what City are charged with the charge is that they’ve been manipulating and falsifying their revenues which has allowed them to spend to the levels they have on transfers.

    That’s what City have to be found either innocent of guilty of.

    If Al Murbarak and City can prove that they haven’t manipulated and falsified their revenues this will all go away if not they will rightfully be punished.

    Seemingly they have so far failed to do that as the case against them has been put forward for sanctioning by UEFA.

    Even if they are sanctioned this case will run and run as there will be an an appeal to UEFA followed by an appeal to CAS but in the interim you can be assured that City will keep everything above board for sure.

    9 real Madrid get money from the state. Surely that’s not on or even fair?

    Blaze, no you’re right ” Real Madrid,FC Barcelona and five other Spanish football clubs must repay tens of millions of euros in illegal state subsidies, after the EU executive found they had received unfair financial aid from their government.

    Real Madrid, the world’s top-earning football club, will have to repay €18.4m (£15.4m), after the European commission judged that an overpriced land deal with local authorities in the Spanish capital was unfairly tilted in the club’s favour. ”

    Seemingly though that one’s been sorted although whether Real and Barca etc should have also been sanctioned by UEFA is open to question.

    How about this for a “solution” with regards to transfers and net spend and all that malarky…..

    Everybody is allowed a “Net-Spend” of say, 75million a year, so basically 75m plus player sales (agents fee’s INCLUDED, that should annoy them and take away some power!), and if you don’t spend it, it gets rolled over so in effect you can save it up…

    This would stop the “big clubs” from getting too far ahead, and allow the “small-clubs” to “save” what they cannot spend until the day if and when they get a bit of a windfall, along with preventing clubs from stockpiling players (I would also have a limit of the number of professionals over the age of 21, perhaps 30 max per club!).

    BANJO FOR PRESIDENT!!!

    Chucky, you’re a bit like Martin Peters.😊

    Actually that’s basically the FFP 2 proposal of 100m Euros net.

    Be a lot clearer for all and a lot easier for UEFA to Police. Good idea to allow it to be rolled over if not used too.

    That’s the thing, keep the rules very, very simple, and then teams can’t cheat the system. Too many rules mean too many loopholes. I’d even have a rule about number of players you can sign in a window too. Say, a max of three… give the clubs something to think about rather than just buying every flavour of the month.

    #1: Max Net Spend of 50 mil per window (includes all agents fees), with clubs allowed to “save” what they don’t spend.
    #2: Max of 30 over 21 players per club (and a max of 4 players on loan, any age!)
    #3: Max of 3 incoming players per transfer window.

    The net spend limit would be sufficient imo I don’t think you need to set rules as to how many players Clubs sign whether it be 10 players or 1 player that’s a bit nanny state imo.

    I would only limit the over 21 loans the under 21 loans are about player development although you could limit it to Academy produced only players that have been at the Club since under 10’s.
