and they say arsenal got a great academy #respect
:/
We really need to do a better job developing our academy. I think all those loaned players are distracting us

so are city and PSG going to be punished for violating FFP rules or nah..? This is UEFA's chance to show that they are serious about this. If they don't punish them then we should go on a 200mil shopping spree this summer, because clearly the rules don't mean anything.
In both cases the teams sponsors have come under scrutiny. In both cases the owner is the main sponsor. There is a weird review that must take place with the sponsor having to show good value for the expenditures. It's pretty hard to prove that (in PSG's case) Qatar tourism will make back €170 mil/season. And in City's case they were given £570 mil, spread out over 10 years. Lol! Strange how that number is awfully close to the amount of money City's owners spent getting them where they are now. Coincidence? I'm not saying it's unjustified as we started the whole thing. But there were no rules when we started it.
Just read that City have posted losses in excess of £149 mil over the last 2 seasons. The max UEFA allows is a net loss of €45 mil (£37 mil) over the course of 2 seasons. If a team exceeds the max allowable losses they are essentially audited by UEFA. City have to show that they've spent at least £75 mil on infrastructure and developement. But they won't be banned, just fined €100,000... LMAO!

what a pathetic joke lool! There's no point in FFP
They would be under a 2 year probationary period in which during those 2 years they would have to get themselves to a break even situation financially. After that time if they still can't break even they would then face bigger fines, a one year ban from all UEFA competitions, and potentially individual players could be disqualified if it was their signing fee or contract that put the team into UEFA's no fly zone. I don't know what happens after that but it looks like a team facing the maximum penalties wouldn't face any action that stops players from competing be it the whole team or 1 or more individuals until after 4 years of big losses. Hmmm...
City spends 150M and pays fine of 0.1M? Lol ridiculous

And by the way, this FFP is unfair rule for other teams in the league especially EPL clubs where the TV right revenue is divided and distributed according to the league standings at the end of season. Clubs like Chelsea, City, United, Arsenal, Liverpool get average of 50M a year when Barca and Madrid take the majority portion of the pie and every year they get 200M for the TV revenue deal. That's why they can all go crazy shopping spree every year. Not so much time after Madrid paid United 80M for Ronaldo, they were able to spend 100M for Bale, and when their financial statement says profit even after all those, there is something wrong. To be really financially fair, EUFA needs to sort this out first.
truth is UEFA want clubs spending money. the wealth needs to circulate, and they more money that is put into the sport, the more people benefit.

This FFP is all for show, a response to the cries of the smaller clubs; to let them know they are not disenfranchised. But overall, as a business, why would you punish owners that are putting money into your sport? It's silly, and mostly conjecture draw up by fans thinking the world is spun on a moralistic axis.
FFP is Old Money Vs New Money. Plan and simple.

The rule only exists to prevent the Old Money clubs from being overshadowed by New Money clubs who could literally fund themselves into the highest level of competition in just a few years. In reality, this rule won't do much to the Chelsea's, City's, PSG's, et cetera...because these clubs have already done most of their spending. This rule's effects are mostly preventing additional clubs from following suit. Theoretically, we could see dozens of other clubs being bought by extremely wealthy owners who desire to do just that. The rules hide themselves behind the platform of wanting to prevent the market from going insane, which it already has begun by the way. But these specific rules have effects on both the market and the quantity of high level competitors. Any club in the world with a reasonably sized stadium and proper facilities could be challenging for all trophies in 2-3 years from this day. There could literally be dozens of new teams competing for the Champions League and all domestic titles every year. Imagine Ipswich, Leicester, Celta Vigo, Levante, Parma, and FC St. Pauli were six of the teams in the UCL quarter finals!

I personally think UEFA needs to use a wage cap instead. Just make it so every team who want to contend in Europe has to meet a certain wage cap, and all the domestic leagues would follow suit by virtue of their richest clubs setting something of a "false cap". Additionally, this would mitigate one of the biggest undesirable effects of the existence of bank rolled clubs: talent-hoarding.

A salary cap would prevent wealthy clubs from offering GIANT contracts to players, effectively limiting the amount of superstars each team could have on its roster; and this is something that I think would actually have a positive effect on world football. However, there is too much money to be shared by everyone when teams pay for giant contracts. Too many people wanting just one more piece of the pie. I doubt a salary cap would be welcomed by many in world football, even though I'd support it as the best option.
I agree kgb. FFP only prevents the new money clubs to become teams like Chelsea or City. I think that the wage cap is a fair way for all the teams to compete for Europeans cups. But it is never gonna happen. Monetary reward is one of the things that attract players from different regions of the world. So as an association of European leagues, I don't think they will make a rule that could lower the attraction to European clubs. And even if there is rule, there will be a loop hole that could make the rule useless as well, for example, Neymar's transfer. On paper he only gets about 140,000M of wage, they paid his father a sun of good 40M that increase his income. Okay they got punished doing that but still. One year transfer ban. Big deal. Right?

Anyways I agree that the rule is there to protect the big clubs than help small clubs.
looking at bale's goal. Wao, really amazing speed, power, balance, control. He is a head of Hazard for now. Hope Hazard will improve more
Ahead of Hazard.

Bale saved Tottenham multiple times at the last minute, just like his goal in the final of Copa del Rey. Bale has pure gazelle like speed, and he's got good instinct of scoring. However Hazard's strength is not his speed but rather his technique on the ball and agility in small place. We've seen one's downfall after he lost his speed. Ronaldo de Lima, Torres, etc.

weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Rodgers-
We won't cheat to win the league. With a lot of people saying the media and pundits are trying to match-fix the premier league for liverpool to win it here is what rodgers said:

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2032278-brendan-rodgers-insists-luis-suarez-and-liverpool-wont-cheat-their-way-to-title
Just read this

' They'll " penalty" their way to the league title '

lol
Sounds good to me, as long as Liverpool win :)
this is amazing

Ramires in the pivot = Insecurities
I hope Luiz---Matic pivot vs Sunderland...

Lampard will play, type of game he should be good in.

What if Liverpool should loose at anfield vs Chelsea i wonder how Gerrard would feel after his premature victory celebration
+1
Lol everyone keeps assuming he was celebrating that they essentially won the league... Perhaps if you listen to the audio you would realize he was celebrating the win of the hard fought GAME and trying to psych up the players for the upcoming ones.
He wasn't celebrating
this is how you celebrate: http://www.josemariomourinho.com/images/323.gif

A.Madrid playing tomorrow more time to prepare against us
Away Lose 3-1
Win 2-0
We need a good result in the first leg. Liverpool in between will make that 2nd leg tougher on our players, so hopefully we don't need to perform another mini-miracle at home to advance.
"Henderson missing might be key" Never thought I would hear such thing.
+2
It'll be hard to win at Anfield. We are specialists in missing chances. They are so good at taking chances. If we have opportunities... We have to score.

Henderson missing might be key. We'll see.
Well you will hear that now more often.

he's improved alot , always on the same wavelength with Suarez--Sturridge--Sterling. and hes up and down the pitch, very instrumental to the Liverpool side.
^ I was just about to right that. Well then, thanks aaron :)
If we win in the weekend we should prioritise the liverpool game over CL
