    I'm genuinely disheartened by all the discussion being about how they might (or will struggle to) create a side to challenge for the top silverware, and nothing about the tyrannical dictatorship that rules/owns the country.

    I thought the oppressive dictatorships of Qatar and Abu Dhabi were bad enough, but Saudi Arabia make them look like liberal democracies! The female half of the population are denied even basic human rights; they execute people who are gay; they stone people to death for having a bit of extra-marital (more accurately, they stone the women to death; the men just get a flogging); they cut of limbs of petty criminals, even if they're doing it because they're starving. They are the biggest funders of terrorism in the world, going back to funding the Mujahidin terrorists in Afghanistan through to the Taliban and Al Qaeda; they export their particular hate-filled and oppressive ultra-zealous version of Islam by building mosques around the world; they have murdered thousands of children in Yemen by involving themselves in that civil war to ensure their corrupt chums there don't lose control of the country.

    They are scum.

    And yet almost everyone involved in football - journalists, pundits (including self-appointed moral arbiter of football, the rent-a-gob Manc tw*t Ratface Neville), managers, players - just averts their eyes and talk about anything but the evil nature of the owners. Honourable exceptions to Klopp in his presser today, and the ever-brilliant David Squires from the Guardian, whose latest cartoon is sheer genius; every panel nails it:

    Can't believe that Everton have been allowed to totally disregard even the lax Premier League FFP rules.

    Looks like they'll be arranging their own punishment though, via a stretch in the Championship

    City, more than 100 alleged breaches of PL rules, unlike the UEFA investigation they cannot get round them by them being outside the 5 year window UEFA have to prosecute, the PL have no such limitation. Theyve been found guilty twice by UEFA, hopefully this results in a punishment far more severe than the slaps on the wrist they have received previously.

    Fingers crossed. The sportwashers have cheated for far too long. Hopefully relegation and a 5 year PL ban. Perhaps the Abu Dhabi dictatorship will lose interest in their sportwashing project, leaving Man City to once again become a nothing yo-yo club.



    I think it's also a shot across the bows for the human rights-denying, terrorism-funding, mass-murdering, misogynist dictators who are using Newcastle as another sportwashing project.

    Is there anyone who can afford to buy a top football club who will have got their money from legitimate sources? I'm guessing now not many is the answer.

    Hardly any, Liverpool were bought by FSG in 2010 for 300million, now they are valued at 3-4billion, in 11 years thats 12 times what it was worth when they bought it. Even a low level PL team like Bournemouth was bought for 100million and they are a tiny club, there aren’t many left owned by locals like they were when the PL began.

    Nice bit of whataboutery

    Here's a good article:

    Man City scandal is not about fair play – it’s about fraud
