Spending lots of money on new players and playing attacking football (their defence wasn't great last season either) is never particularly a good formula on staying up...

He is also the only England manager with a 100% record.

Plus Milan are currently sitting in 4th. It's an ideal fit.

Listening to the Red Star / Liverpool match on the radio earlier and the atmosphere was something else.

Dreadful result for Liverpool there. It’s gonna be a bit dicey for the rest of this group.

Manchester City hit by more allegations over Uefa’s financial fair play rules

• Allegations concern City players’ image rights
• Pep Guardiola: ‘We want to follow the rules’


Manchester City are facing fresh allegations that they circumvented Uefa’s financial fair play (FFP) rules – with claims the club saved millions by secretly setting up a shell company to pay players for their image rights. The operation, allegedly called Project Longbow by club insiders, allowed them to save €30m (£26.1m) in marketing income, according to Der Spiegel.

The German magazine has promised to focus on City throughout the week and Tuesday’s reports suggest that City understood from an early stage that the FFP rules being introduced by the then Uefa president Michel Platini would affect their chances of becoming one of the biggest clubs in Europe. According to a leaked memo from the club’s CEO, Ferran Soriano, the club decided that they needed to fight financial fair play but “do it in a way that is not visible, or we will be pointed out as the global enemies of football”.

Love that. “We want to follow the rules”. Presumably you just couldn’t for some reason? I really want Man City to be properly hated like Man Utd were.

Giggs can’t even be bothered watching his own players.

Oh and Thierry Henry has had a disastrous start so far. Not entirely his fault as Jardim found it difficult to the end, so it was never a job for a rookie to come into mid season.

Very disappointing tonight to see Liverpool keeping the ball after Red Star kicked it out so an injured player can receive treatment whilst Klopp got red in the face and screamed. Unfortunate that their newfound wealth can't buy class :(
