No transfer ban. City accept mistake, receive fine.

Good. Basically I read from that is City said "sorry we did it" and avoided a ban yet Chelsea and Madrid got a ban. Me thinks they realise they can't take the might of City on.

Where does this leave us with the other stuff?

Theres no other FIFA case, as I understand it. Since we clearly made mistakes it is a relief. Of course the UEFA and PL FFP cases remain.

How it will upset those Rags and Dippers

Mind you I said a few weeks ago Infantino is a big fan - "we must let owners invest in their clubs"

Not sure about UEFA though. I think they basically have no clue what they are doing right now

From what I've seen on this. Chelsea had 29 charges against them, we had 9 and it sounds like we were only found guilty of 2.

From Stuart Brennan's article:

The Blues have been fined £315,000 for the transgressions, believed to relate to the transfer of African teenagers George Davies and Dominic Oduro from the Right to Dream Academy in Ghana to Danish side Nordsjaelland.


The pair told a Danish newspaper that they had signed for City and played in youth matches before turning 18, which is against Fifa rules.

City have just released a statement on the matter . Case relates back to 2016 and city state rules and regulations were unclear then and new ones have recently been implemented by FIFA which are much clearer or words to that effect . Also city admitting any mistakes thus pleading guilty unlike Chelsea and other clubs who pleaded not guilty and ended up getting transfer bans . Think the clubs legal team have played another blinder here .

Chelsea’s transgressions were far more endemic.

BBC website - "Chelsea were banned from signing players for two transfer windows for a similar rule breach - but the club are appealing to have that overturned."

They're such shit stirring pricks!

I think there was a huge difference, mate. From what we've been told, yes, the number of players counted but there was also the issue of conforming to the regulations when FIFA elaborated on them in 2016. We agreed we'd got it wrong and changed our practice's immediately whereas the likes of Chelsea chose to ignore the confirmed regulations and carried on regardless.

Great to see, though, not just because there was a concern regarding a transfer ban but more of seeing the Rags, Dippers, Chavs, etc, hit the roof when the news broke.

At one point we were being investigated by all the FAs plus the PL, how many are left to be decided?

I did like the club statement, basically stating we admit our wrongs and congratulating FIFA on an open but confidential investigation.

I wonder who that statement was aimed at ;-)

I hope you are right, but I wouldn't count on it.

UEFA under a lot of pressure to do something about the Football Leaks "revelations" especially after the NY Times/Tariq Panja's recent report on how PSG basically got away with no punishment for the summer of Neymar and Mbappe, because of what appears to be some form of corruption (disagreement between one body who felt they clearly violated FFP, vs. the former Belgian PM, Yves Leterme, who disagreed and ironically enough is the lead investigator/decision maker in our case now, and who many are led to believe dislikes us).

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/13/spor ... -uefa.html - The article on UEFA wanting to ban us

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/24/spor ... a-ffp.html - The more recent article on how UEFA's investigation and decision on PSG looks shady. (I recommend reading to get a sense of how this could impact us. We are also mentioned a few times, and I know it bothers us, but I do think it is relevant for the writer to bring us up as we are in a similar line of fire...I know some will disagree)

An investigation of P.S.G. was begun. A report was produced. When it arrived last June on the desk of José Narciso da Cunha Rodrigues, a former judge at Europe’s top court and the chairman of the UEFA panel that penalizes teams that break the organization’s financial rules, he discovered that the lead investigator had cleared P.S.G.

So after a member of his panel went through the report, Cunha Rodrigues sent the file back, demanding that the investigator, the former Belgian prime minister Yves Leterme, reassess the case. In doing so, he also raised questions about several of Leterme’s conclusions.

“The decision to close the case,” Cunha Rodrigues wrote, “was manifestly erroneous.”

The details of UEFA’s nearly yearlong investigation of P.S.G., and the fight over its conclusions, are included in documents obtained by The New York Times that in page after page eviscerate the decision by UEFA investigators to exonerate the Qatari-financed club, one of the biggest spenders in sports. But the documents also reveal how UEFA appeared to sink its own investigation, and how P.S.G. used a technicality to avoid the possibility of serious punishment and preserve its cherished place in soccer’s richest competition, the Champions League.

Still laughing at the thick cunts who are using this as some kind of conspiracy. How the worm turns ;-)
