Ciddy Europe Ban?

Uefa investigators want Manchester City to be banned from the Champions League for a season if they are found guilty of breaking financial rules.

However, according to one well-placed source, a final decision is yet to be made by chief investigator Yves Leterme.

Leeds have been banned for Europe for ages!

And no-one seems bothered about that

Shirley Man City are The Man?

It's in the name and everything.

Leeds have been banned for Europe for ages!

That's more of a self-imposed exile TBF, Tads.

We match going City fans support the ban.

Tadagee - 14 May 2019 21:43:28 (#9 of 33)

Yes spar. That was the joke.

With any luck, ALL English clubs will be banned (again) after (predictable) crowd trouble in Madrid around June 1st.

Moschops - 15 May 2019 06:35:43 (#12 of 33)

Odd thing to hope for.

Tadagee - 15 May 2019 07:02:43 (#13 of 33)

Bless his little cottons, he's popping up on threads to say such things to get a reaction.

mememe - 15 May 2019 07:04:43 (#14 of 33)

A massive belm? That sort of reaction?

spartak - 15 May 2019 07:14:48 (#15 of 33)

I can't see trouble between Spuds and Poo fans TBH.

TommyDGNR8 - 15 May 2019 09:07:21 (#16 of 33)

Do Spuds have any sort of hoolie element? I don't think I've ever heard of them.

This is NOT a challenge, if your carer is reading this to you.

mememe - 15 May 2019 09:08:44 (#17 of 33)

They'd only end up stanley-knifing themselves in true City fashion

fogger - 16 May 2019 09:49:30 (#18 of 33)

Ciddy have been referred to Uefa's Financial Control Body for a telling off.

Arjuna - 16 May 2019 09:56:55 (#19 of 33)

They were fined £49m last time, perhaps UEFA will cash in again rather than enforce a ban.

Bonusy - 16 May 2019 09:57:18 (#20 of 33)

"Don't do it again again. We don't want to be put in a position where we have to do something about PSG"

Arjuna - 16 May 2019 10:16:19 (#21 of 33)

Many people had high hopes for Financial Fair Play but its very hard to believe that UEFA have proven competent enough to implement it in a consistent and effective matter.

fogger - 16 May 2019 10:20:17 (#22 of 33)

Uefa will give Ciddy probably around £70m for their Big Cup participation this year, so I can see why they might be leaning toward a ban and not a fine

Arjuna - 16 May 2019 10:31:14 (#23 of 33)

But they will give money out to whoever participates.

I have no idea what they will do, they are making it up as they go along.

mememe - 16 May 2019 10:35:21 (#24 of 33)

Any ban wouldn't be for the next season, fwiw.
