I honestly don't agree with what Neville said.@Tassie Devil I like Gary Neville's stance regarding FFP. Even though he's United through and through he shares my point of view that it's a joke and only in place to protect the established big clubs and prevent clubs like City, Newcastle etc from winning the league or rich owners buying any other club to propel them to a contender.
He made the good point about Blackburn buying the league which the owner got praised for but now it's frowned upon.
People complain about City's dominance... United won 8 out of the first 12 PL titles.
Having said that, the rules are the rules. If City get proven they've broken them on appeal then they'll be appropriately punished. I have no problem with that.
What I have a problem with is FFP to begin with. That's not as a City fan. That's as a football fan. I'd love to see Newcastle, Forest, Villa or any non established club to win the title. And I'd hate to see them face a million FFP charges if they did just so clubs like United can go back to having a monopoly on the league.
It makes sense in regard to United as yes, they did win it 8 out of 12 so it's similar on paper to what's happening to City.
I'd personally take a look at what Carragher said about it tbh,
