    As an Arsenal fan I love Vieira and believe he was an even better captain than Tony Adams. However his temperament wasn't always perfect and his goals and assist ratio doesn't come close to what Paul Scholes did, let alone Gerrard, Lampard and Yaya Toué.

    @azurelas_2 he played deeper though, goals and assists wasn't his job. Fair point about temperament but he was the best defensive midfielder in the world when he was on the pitch.

    Paddy was an incredible footballer. Just looking at goals and assists probably only tells you about 20% of what he could do on the pitch. I don't think I've seen anyone as good at both breaking up play and in transition.

    Saw Yaya play a trial match for Arsenal, was gutted we couldn't sign him, obvious he was going to be a star.

    Which they'll appeal and get it busted down to a fine.

    They got a 30m euro fine as well. Will probably end up being 1 year and 20m or something along those lines. Even that would be great to see. Huge question mark over Pep's future now surely.

    Yeah I imagine it will go to 5th, which bodes well for sheffield United.

    Surely the appeal will take ages so if anything it will be the team that finish 5th next season.

    I’m surprised UEFA have taken FFP this seriously. But then City are new money and FFP largely works in the interest of the traditionally established clubs.


    So though, nice to see someone busted for cheating.

    Imagine if Uefa took things like racism this seriously rather than things like this that just impact a handful of the richest clubs.

    "But as far as I’m concerned, the first thing you can do for me is chuck all your medals and all your caps and all your pots and all your pans into the biggest f*cking dustbin you can find. Because you’ve never won any of them fairly. You’ve done it all by cheating.”

    Lol. Remember the close ties between Michel Platini, Sarkozy and the Qataris? Not a chance in hell.

    Wow, they’re potentially facing a points deduction too. Liverpool being handed the league.

    Well, maybe that City fan from Savage’s phone-in will want to call in tomorrow and offer some more balanced and cogent commentary on how MCFC knew this was coming and so eased off the gas....
