Agreed. Only reason I mentioned was to illustrate that City net spend not huge every year and help imagine what it could be in 2019

In which + I play Txitxi with Manchester City and do another Keep/Sell/Loan... We thought it would be straight-forward, but this squad could look very different very soon...

Like I said, we've seen weirder things happen. But City, Pep and Juve all deny it. It's possible they're all liars. But we can only report what we're told + draw our own conclusions. And if there was something in it, neither Juve/Pep wd deny so emphatically.

Big read: - intense focus on top end - greatest ever financial disparity - more clubs unable to pay wages - changing fan demographics - estimates of 75% of lower-league clubs with no long-term future in current form Can football as we know it survive?

Really? Did Sky Sports say he was going to Juve? Does it become fact when Sky Sports says that he's going to Juve? I scoff because I find it hugely unlikely that he's going to Juve and he himself was categorical in his denial (and he didn't need to be).

Problem is, without safeguards, the club’s creditors are negatively impacted too, through no fault of their own

Thanks. Though, to be fair, they weren’t too excited about Allegri either. If he delivers, they’ll come around

Because I don’t particularly think it’s relevant to this exercise?

I don’t actually. All I said is that I’ve been told they won’t sack him and will make any interested party pay a comp fee

Actually plenty have... or been relaunched as amateur clubs... The reason you haven’t seen more clubs disappear is there are regulations and it’s not a laissez faire free market. If it were, more would go under.

Bit of a circular argument, no? Just bc u are willing to do something doesn’t mean it’s the right decision...

Ok. So what happens when a club defaults? Shut them down? And if that then leads to other defaults because of unpaid debt? Or inflationary pressure which becomes unsustainable?

Can we clarify? They’re not out of FFP. They still can’t lose more than 30m over 3 years. They’re out of settlement regime.

If u allow free market to rule, you would allow leveraged investment, yes?

Ask Mina. I think, given he normally offers a short term boost, he’s a better option for Juve than Inter
