£300 mill

So City preparing a bid for Aubameyang. That'll likely set them back around £60 mill, plus they'll no doubt plough another £100 odd mill into their defence as well. They could conceivably throw £300 million at their side this window. It's getting a little ridiculous, I'm not really that jealous, coz it just seems wrong. I mean when does it become too much and unsustainable?

I guess it stops when ppl stop watching it and that'll never happen. So should there be a wage cap or salary cap, is that even viable? The powerhouses would say no and I'm not sure how much say the governing bodies would have, as I guess it would need to be agreed across all clubs in Europe and the big boys would not be fans.

Maybe it's just a snapshot of society and you just have to believe your time will come?

Might be a bit of a dull and old subject but just interested what you fellas think!

I have heard that they're not interested in him, so who knows what's going on.

Whether through luck, necessity or stinginess, I personally think that Spurs have taken the most realistic approach to success for any club that's outside of the super club realm in a league where five other teams all have more spending power and ability to give players higher remuneration. Get a system-oriented but emotionally intelligent manager who can improve players, invest heavily in your academy and have a consistent focus on technical ability and a style that enables academy players to progress to the senior team and look to buy players in the 20-24 age range from outside England who fill the gaps in your squad and fit the style you have.

Totally agree, I think most within football, look at our template and would begrudgingly respect the way we've grown as a club with the limited resources we have compared to the big boys.

It's more about where does the amount the big boys are spending stop, I mean transfer fees are escalating at such a rate that in a few years time, the best players will be smashing thru the £150 million mark and even average players will cost around £30-50 mill. Surely there has to come a time where it starts to become unsustainable.

FinancialFairPlay,clearly not working as desired by UEFA,they bottled punishment on city,chelsea,PSG,Monaco who all fell foul,and now not a peep about it in any quarter.Surely FFP means unsustainable business model putting a sporting club/institution at risk.The outlook has to be enic,abrahamovic,qatar whoever are custodians for a period in time merely,yes Roman can afford a £1bn loan to the club on the never-never and then a new stadium on top,but look beyond him anyone else fancy bailing chelsea out for 2bn with a new stadium?risdale,venkys,knighton,milanovic all looked like they could but couldnt and put those clubs on the brink,how long for leeds,pompey,blackburn to recover?Thats the idea isnt it,most of europes prestiges leagues are becoming 2 horse races if that,the PL is a little different,but until recently it was a 4 team closed shop for CL.
It will take a big financial failure of a milan club,a billy big boots PL club,a monaco or middle eastern pull out for rule makers to wake up.TV money will not be so high forever,if you took out BT/sky battling for a monopoly and betting huge on football viewers,the market would crash,which asking people to subscribe upwards of £100pm for both providers nowadays is likely to occur Unsustainable,we are in a boom cycle,know what follows that??

Give me the way we do it any day.

I love watching our relative shoe-string budget team beat up on the silver spoon mob.

Manchester City face the prospect of a transfer ban if they are judged to have broken rules around the signing of a foreign teenage player at a court case due to be heard next week.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) will convene on Monday to hear Argentine club Velez Sarsfield’s claims that City acted unethically by approaching Benjamin Garré when he was still 15 and then flouted transfer rules by signing the attacking midfielder when he turned 16.

Fifa rejected an initial complaint from Velez last September which prompted the club to take City and the world governing body to CAS. If Velez win their case, City could be banned from registering players for two transfer windows.

Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have all been subjected to transfer bans in the past few years after being found guilty of breaching rules around the signing of international players under the age of 18.

City have strongly dismissed suggestions that one of the reasons they are chasing such a high number of players in this summer’s transfer window is in order to protect themselves in the event a ban is forthcoming. They have already signed goalkeeper Ederson Moraesand Portugal playmaker Bernardo Silva for a combined £78.3 million and are pursuing at least another four players and possibly as many as six more.

Last month, City were banned by the Premier League from signing academy players for two years – with the second 12 months suspended - after it emerged they had made illegal approaches for youth players registered with other clubs.


Velez claim that Fifa rules allow players under 18 to move between clubs only in European countries. Fifa are understood to have approved the transfer on the basis that Garre has an Italian passport.

“Man City argued that there is an exception in the Fifa rules that said that because he has a European passport he could be transferred,” Bernardo Bertelloni, the Velez club secretary, told The Times this month. “But the Fifa rule does not say that, it says he can move only within the EU, between EU clubs.”

Bertelloni claims Garre - who is the grandson of Oscar Garre, a member of Argentina’s 1986 World Cup winning squad - left Velez a couple of days before his 16th birthday and spent a few days in Germany before entering England one day after his 16th birthday.

He also said Txiki Begiristain, the City director of football, wrote to Velez in June last year, a fortnight before Garre’s 16th birthday, to explain that the player and his parents had taken the decision to join City. Velez responded by stating their “express refusal” and warning City that they would be in breach of Fifa rules.

It is understood it could be several weeks before there is an outcome from the CAS hearing.

In essence this is tantamount to insider trading.... isn't it?

What type of punishments are handed out for that type of shit....?

Trouble is the amount of corruption in football deals nowerdays means there will be fuck all sanctions. Even the whole fifa debacle has gone quiet.

Begiristain and Pep did exactly the same thing at Barca, and got a transfer ban for their troubles. Of course by the time the investigation happened, they had fucked off to City and Bayern respectively, and the ban was lifted after one window.
