Not the Kiwi you need but the one you deserve

I'm not saying City etc aren't also guilty. I'm saying that, as a lawyer, can understand why Everton was handled faster than City.On the face of it it just doesn't add up to me.
Everton have hardly been throwing cash around.
Obviously the others played it a bit smarter with the way they manipulated the books to massage their incomes.
City have 100+ charges of breaching FFP over about nine years. That takes an inordinate amount of time to investigate and deal with procedurally.
The rules are complex and although from the outside one might posit that City and Chelsea are obviously breaching the rules, the reality of bringing and upholding a decision and sanction is extremely difficult and time consuming.
