I read the statement as the club showing they are not going to accept this and that we will fight any punishment UEFA are considering.

To be honest, I'm not sure how UEFA can prove anything.

The emails published by Der Spiegel suggest Sheikh Mansour paid part of our sponsorships. But if he gave the money, for example, to Etihad and Etihad transferred it to us, then our audited accounts will show that we received a sponsorship payment from Etihad.

Etihad will be under no obligation to open its books to UEFA to show where its funds for this sponsorship came from.

The only risk we have is if part of the funds we said came from Etihad were not fully transferred by Etihad.

I am imagine UEFA will be in discussions with the club to see if an agreement on a punishment can be reached without it potentially going to court. This would allow UEFA to satisfy the leading clubs at the ECA. But it seems we are not prepared to accept that this time.

No they didn't threaten legal action and the statement is worrying.

During the last investigation, there was very little word from us as the investigation was ongoing and we have since found out that Gianni Infantino was emailing Kaldoon begging him to accept the punishment. We knew the route the investigation was taking before the decision was made.

This time around we don't seem to be having that dialogue. To me that statement confirms 'we don't know what the investigation team are discussing and we are not being briefed on the possible outcome'.

We have some senior managers who must be the dumbest cunts alive to put shite in emails that could come back to bite us on the arse and they would give me very little confidence in fighting something like this.

The only way to fight it is from the inside like PSG are doing


You think they are 'discussing' anything other than punishment?

I don't


There will either be a severe punishment or the case will be thrown out. There will be no half way ground on this one like the last investigation where we were being briefed. We agreed the last time not to appeal. We don't seem to be giving the same opportunity this time

I just can't imagine we'll get the book thrown at us or something like that. I think the odds of that happening are slim to none.

I'd like us to be able to close this & move on once & for all. We were shafted the last time with the FFP after agreeing not to be seen to rock the UEFA boat. Now that everyone has seen that we are here to stay & getting stronger, out comes the "dirt" allegedly again. I hope to god that we have not been so stupid to have dropped financial bollocks on a paper trail - if we have, there is no excuse & we take what's coming. I'm assuming that we haven't & if that is the case, enough of this shit & we should go after anyone & that includes the Beeb who are currently leading with this article on their home page again

Everyone calm the fuck down, immediately.

It's an absolute crap competition anyway. We should fucking boycott it every season. And create the stupid fucking closed shop league if we so desire, but even that's fucking queer. As in strange, you bigots.

League always, and i'd be one-fucking-million percent satisfied.

That is the strongest statement MCFC have used to date . Individuals and parties have tried everything to tarnish the good name of MCFC and the illegal email hacking proves this . Rhetoric used in the MCFC statement absolutely spells out we are now prepared to take legal action imho .

So we'll setup our own league and invest way more than UEFA ever could in prize money and publicity. Again, fuck CL and fuck people that think it's so goddam special. Also, this....

That statement is very watery, more like a little moan rather than a roar.
No threat there whatsoever, looks like were taking it.

Dont agree, if were so entrenched and believe in our position, the statement would have been much stronger.

We're not taking anything, the message is clear - our accounts are a matter of public information, if you call us liars expect a reaction, and if you build your case on stolen information then we'll see where that gets you in court. It should have been our stance the first time around.

Probably the adult version of a badly beaten house wife that finally snaps and murders her husband.

Fuck the lot of them. We're so good that if we aren't in it then it will be like Wimbledon 1977 when Virginia Wade won.
