Man City paying 639,000 per day on wages during the 2012-2013 season, that is 233,235,000 for the season. But that does include all of the staff pay offs for Mancini & his team.

Uefa insists that top flight clubs can not play on the same night as champions league games. Obviously it's the choice of the consumer if you want to watch champions league or not. Why force a premier league club to move a game because of it.

The rule only came to light reading that Hull v Brighton Fa cup reply has to be on a Monday.

They've been doing it for years. UEFA have been holding back money from English clubs as FL games are played on CL nights.

Pathetic.

Lescott comes on for Kolarov during the Man City vs Barcelona game and immediately doubles the number of English participants out on the field.  I know that this wasn't even new news 15 years ago, but it still doesn't sit right with me.  That game just feels like one load of foreign players playing another load of foreign players.  In Manchester.

The English dimension to it is pretty flimsy at best.  I used to remember a time when I used to will English clubs on in Europe, but can't really see the point now.

Maybe losing parochialism is a good thing....find other reasons for favouring a club.

At least the game did pass Smeeton's 3rd rule, which is for any televised game, there should be at least some STFC connection, whether on pitch, sidelines, com box, or studio.

 I guess Milner was on the bench...but I was thinking more of Brian Kidd, who was briefly a cone carrier at the CG.  Marwood is a goodie, hadn't thought of him...

 Tonight's game will be a struggle....Arsenal are usually covered by Walcott....hopefully Glenn will be on punditry.

Ribery looks like most of the women in Swindon.

There are many things that can held against Swindon....but the quality, diversity and willingness of its women folk isn't one of them....

Refereeing.

With reference to a particular game? The Man City ref the other night was quite liberal.
