Can’t quite believe we’re here again after the chaos of Paris last year + promises made that Istanbul would be better …. but we’ve tried to collate the experiences of Man City fans in the paper today + I’m properly shocked at what went on last weekend in Istanbul…
Shocked that having put some work into this, @UEFA wouldn’t even comment or offer any apology. I’m guessing they will in time but impression it gives is that they don’t care (FWIW I know there are people who do, but the official face is so tone deaf)…..
I can’t think of any other leisure event where you would pay between €70 to €690 (+flights + hotels) + then be asked to queue for 2hrs to get a bus to take you there, which itself might take 3hrs….this is queue for shuttle buses from @PeterCampbe11 Image

FT: Arsenal 3 Southampton 3. Two late goals rescue #AFC an astonishing point. It hands #MCFC a big title advantage. Arsenal will likely have to now win at the Etihad on April 26. But a tremendous fightback nonetheless despite the poor result in the bigger picture. ImageImageImageImage
Arsenal naturally dejected at full-time. But the manner in which they came back at least gives them something positive to cling to ahead of #MCFC. But failing to beat the bottom side and move seven-clear, is nothing to celebrate and the final whistle scenes reflected that.
Southampton will also feel gutted. A win would have taken them off the bottom. It still might prove a valuable point for them in their fight against relegation. Really neither side will be happy with a draw, but it could have been worse for #AFC and title is still in their hands.

🗣️ Thierry Henry speaks to us at @CBSSportsGolazo on Arsenal's Premier League chances. "The last game [against West Ham] didn’t reassure me. From Arsenal's point of view, since the beginning of the season, I have been saying you don’t win a title on emotions... Image
"You can win a cup, the #UCL, maybe even the World Cup. But across 38 games you can’t be too emotional about it, and recently we’ve been too emotional...
"You can feel the emotion coming, but don’t be emotional. There’s a difference. Stay calm. We are still ahead of #MCFC, but I am saying they need to get rid of the emotional part of the game and concentrate on what they have to do...

(1/4) No confirmation yet if the law firm behind the Super League, @Clifford_Chance, that also have helped #MCFC stall and delay the PL’s investigation, will assist City in these proceedings.
(2/4) I am the first to defend the order where a criminal — no matter how heinous the crime is — get an attorney in the court of law. But the same does not apply to Sovereign Wealth Funds launching an attack on Fair Play or football as we know it.
(3/4) In fact, many law firms nowadays have rather, strict CSR policies on which clients they accept. Why? We are greedy, but our reputation actually matters. Hence, I think it’s only fair that one of the entities that seem to be the greatest enabler of……

The Premier League’s decision to hit Manchester City with more than 100 financial fair play-related charges is unprecedented, surprising & potentially transformative in terms of the football landscape.

This is what has happened, why it has taken place now & what comes next 🧵
Manchester City are accused by the #PL of the following:

▪️ Not providing accurate financial information
▪️ Not disclosing managerial remuneration for a four-year period
▪️ Breaching profit & sustainability rules
▪️ Not complying with UEFA regulations around club licensing & FFP Image
Manchester City expressed their “surprise” at the Premier League’s charges & pushed back against claims they had failed to cooperate fully with the investigation.

#MCFC are determined to defend themselves against the allegations & are confident of doing so.

Yaya Touré sells a license for his “image rights” to a 3rd party, “the Company”. Then #MCFC’s owner, ADUG, pays €2m per year or 40k a week to “the Company” to license these image rights and get advice on how to exploit them. Is this a legit business transaction or an attempt…
…for an owner to reimburse a player outside of the books of the club to improve its FFP position? Pep claims to be unaware of any wrong doing. Have anyone asked him if he think it’s likely that ADUG would want to pay €4m for YTs image rights — when he already is obligated to…

(1/22) The below thread includes a summary of Premier League’s accusations against #MCFC. In this thread, we look at the substance of the accusations to the extent they are known and speculate on what they could mean.
(2/22) In short, #MCFC is alleged to have breached the rules in 5 different ways. The details of the accusations and evidence of them has not been announced. But we can still speculate on what is behind them.
(3/22) In the first (1) instance, #MCFC is accused of not providing “accurate financial information” to the Premier League – “in particular with respect to its revenue (including sponsorship revenue)” between 2009 and 2018. Much of #MCFC’s revenue stems from sponsorships.

💣🚨(1/15) The Premier League has issued a statement that it has referred a number of alleged breaches of the Premier League Rules by Pep Guardiola’s #MCFC to a Commission. In this 🧵, we cover what this means and what the implications could be.
(2/15) #MCFC is alleged to have breached the PL Rulebook in no less than – five – ways. These allegations require a thorough analysis, but this is Twitter, lets try the super-fast version of it.
(3/15) What rule has #MCFC allegedly broken? The PL rulebook includes a provision stating that clubs cannot make false statements to UEFA when reviewed in light of FFP rules. Currently, its in J.7, previously it was J.8, unless I am mistaken.

Chelsea have moved fast to agree a verbal deal with Atletico Madrid for Joao Felix after late night internal talks where they decided to proceed. As reported, Atleti's loan price dropped from original quote & #CFC expected to pay around £9m & 100% of Felix's wages (£5.3m). Image
As revealed, although #CFC would love an option to buy, Atleti's starting position has always been a straight loan & they are yet to budge on this position. Chelsea know without one there is less long-term value. But the consensus is short-term needs make a deal worth pursuing.
Another suitor could still technically counter (if quick) since nothing signed, but very advanced. Yet when #AFC and #MUFC (currently focused on Wout Weghorst) held dialogue both made it clear anything above a £5m loan fee was (with no option) too high.
