So it transpires that Man City have been making secret payments to offshore accounts. This is for a large amount of money to avoid paying UK Tax. With this swindle, surely the FA will throw the book at them and relegate them at the end of this season as they have done with other clubs in the past.

Yep. I am absolutely confident that the FA will apply the rules fairly and not favour any one club over another.

I'm sure the FA won't crap themselves at the thought of a major and cost legal battle.

You can also be sure that the press and the footballing community in general will see to it that Man City are stigmatised as cheats for years, nay, decades to come.

If they don't relegate City, then at least they'll feel obliged to right past wrongs and reinstate us to the Prem.


Edit: damn, this was the FL before Prem days wasn't it. Sneaky bastards.

It does seem that the vast majority of reports to come out have highlighted that city deceived FFP. Is artificially inflating sponsorship and turnover actually making them pay more tax on income?

Surely its illegal to do this though even if it is? At the moment it just looks frowned upon by fans and other clubs for getting around FFP.

Todays offshore account news is obviously news that should get HMRC right on to them regardless if the football governing bodies refuse to sit up

The FFP rules were devised by UEFA and Deloitte I believe... Citys Finance Director (and some members of his staff) came to City from Deloitte.... They probably found a way around it.

Relegate Bmuff two divisions for fiddling the wage cap instead....I would prefer that.

And now this "Manchester City are under investigation by FIFA due to allegations third-party ownership rules have been broken through their relationship with Danish club FC Nordsjaelland" The list of charges grows longer, at this rate they'll be relegated too the Sunday league! Can't wait to see a big club feel the full force of the FA and league like STFC did.
