The manner in which the football institutions have allowed their offices to be used by the old order to attempt to keep City reeled in.
Now we see what is probably the worst kind of corruption; the use of referees to allow opposing players to attempt to injure, maim and even possibly end players' careers on the field of play all done within the public gaze of a global TV audience of many millions.
Too confident in their own invulnerable positions, those that run our game do not give a flying fuck what anybody thinks. They do as they please in the knowledge that as the sanctioning bodies, they will notbe asked to sanction themselves.
What we witnessed against Cardiff, replicated also against Spurs and other teams is nothing short of a series of physical assaults designed to injure.
If done off the pitch, there would be a huge public outcry against the perpetrators.The media would have a field day ripping these thugs to bits...On the field of play, week after week it is just considered a part of the game.
Warnock's public persona may be that of a cuddly, family man, but the reality of his words tells another truth.
Was it Duncan Ferguson who was arrested for his on filed assault on another player? It's about time our club took the view that if the football institutions refuse to defend our players, then City should. In court, dragging the player into the dock.
If the football institutions wanted to stop this, they could do so. A player deemed to have assaulted (not just fouled) another player to an extent where the victim misses a number of matches, should not be allowed to play until his victim is considered ready to play again.
And for the record, if a player ends another player's career, then the same rule should apply. It would certsainly have affected the careers of Keane, Buchan and Best.
Likely to happen, not in a million years.
I think the referees are agenda driven 100% , they obviously get together and discuss various players and teams play with half of them bitching about City players '' falling over'' ''diving'' etc etc and I fucking guarantee they mostly agree that City players are the biggest culprits and then set out to give us fuck all when officiating our matches....its either their individual decision to fuck us over or it comes from even higher.
IMO -the most bent cunt in football matches is actually not the referee , its the fuckign linesman ! one day it will come out that one of these cunts has had a 3rd party putting bets on matches..........its that fuckign easy for them to do.
One day it will come out....one day.
No point discussing the other issue of FFP as we all know that's an open and shut case Agenda against City more so than anyone else (Barring maybe PSG).
