Leicester and to a certain extent as much as I hate to say it Liverpool prove that’s not quite the case though is it. If we had had a little more luck and probably a bit more ruthlessness then we could also have been added to that list. We also beat Man City in the champions league last year incase you forgot.Unlimited resources enables such clubs to accumulate the very best players and thus stop less rich clubs from having them. Chelsea have done this with players seen as having the greatest potential. They collect them and then loan them out.

Buy Nancy and sell them old or fringe players for massive fees to balance the books, whilst using their own money to fund the purchase.
But the verdict being overturned would be nothing to do with UEFA. It's out of their hands now.As I've said before, I think that if this gets overturned or diluted too much UEFA will be subjected to endless allegations of corruption and taking bungs. I also think other clubs should threaten to pull out of competitions if they're expected to put up with City, PSG etc. cheating all of the time.
All well and good, except that upping the age to not allowing clubs to sign foreign players to under 20 would be restraint of trade and illegal, can only do it for minors.It can all be stopped very easily. The powers that be don’t want to though
Make it so clubs cannot sign foreign players aged under 20, cannot loan out foreign players at all, can only loan out a maximum of 6 players and 3 of them have to be homegrown by the club loaning.
Player trading shouldn’t have ever been allowed to get to the stage where it’s an actual approach to balance the books and make money. Sure, it can be part of the overall process, but that process has to be ‘buy player, if he does well for us we might make good money on him in the future’ as opposed to ‘let’s buy him, keep him from rivals, loan him out to satellite club, if he does well maybe bring him back, if not good enough for us, sell him on for profit’
Money talks. No moral compass within football unfortunately. Look st the recent nonsense in Germany. Black player gets racially abused, people boo but game carries on. Billionaire white club owner gets called son of a whore, game gets stopped, teams protest and come out denouncing “hate”
The games fucked
