Coke v Pep
Well regulation 14d is: It shall also be a breach of this Regulation 14 by the Club if the information contained in such reports is either initially inaccurate or has not been updated by the Club as necessary to ensure it remains accurate.
So it's an admin issue. We sent George Glendon on loan there earlier this season, so it'll be something to do with us not registering something in time or forgetting to email someone at the FA. Small fine, FA Christmas party gets its champagne paid for, and that'll be that.
Remember that time when I said something once and then never said it again because it was just an opinion and I couldn't back it up, until something in the news came out that was loosely related to what I had said, and then all of a sudden I started giving it all Billy Big Bollocks and told people to look at how great I was?
I'm just tugging your coin purse, Chief.
It's an admin issue. It's not a conspiracy.
We've not exactly been playing like we're doped up either.
Talk about blown out of proportion! Why has this even been announced in such a 'click-baity' kind of way by the FA?
Play behind closed doors....
You've played like Pep is doped up plenty.
So that's how they convinced Pep, Kun, Silva et al to join such a low-level mediocre club
It wouldn't surprise me.
Pep joins, and they're already breaching doping regulations
Bah, fining Man City is pretty pointless.
Is this anything like what happened to Rio? Except this is an entire team?
Yep. It's like punishing a masochist with a kick in the plums.
Looks like this is a minor issue related to a player on loan from City to Fleetwood - George Glendon. Guy probably forget to update his address on some form.
To be honest, I'm pretty annoyed at the way the FA has scatter-gunned this all over the internet. Absolutely no need to do that, other than to hurt the club.
If the FA cared as much about the sport as they do about obscure paperwork, maybe we wouldn't have had decades of sexual abuse in coaching.
Heard you the first time.
Or colonised Mars atleast.
8 month ban for each player. It's the only fair outcome.
It was a different post but whatever you say chief.
Exactly. High stakes!
Always knew there was something fishy about fleetwood, and city would be playing games with the turnstiles shut if they became 100% dope free.
Get with the script - that's financial doping as you yourself have been so quick to remind us so many times down the years
I'd say we've been playing like we're pissed up to be honest
This is what you get when either you when either one of the Gallagher brothers gets to pally with the squad.
It was dem pesky rags.
And the law is there because a way to get away with doping is not to have your players available for testing.
True. As I'm sure a certain Mr R Ferdinand would only be too willing to testify.
What was the name of the City player who did the exact same thing and got fined about £3?
They don't have any local lads do they?

He is banned for transfers but is an actual lawyer dealing with many cases in CAS and a united fan.

It's most likely to be in relation to George Glendon being on loan there and Man City and Fleetwood not alerting the FA of his change of address or somesuch
Edit: As has already been mentioned in this thread.
We're not really here
Here little fishy, fishy, fishy....
Christian Negouai. He was fined £2000 IIRC. I think it came down to him having a more plausible explanation for missing his test - from memory he got stuck in traffic picking his mum up from the airport and by the time he got back the drug testers had left.
Personally, I would have banned him for 9 months too on account of him being such a shite player.
Too right! This, is why there's decades of sexual abuse in youth coaching. I can't believe nobody thought of it earlier.
City are just completely innocent, it's a conspiracy.
Only an admin error.....
Thought someone had tested positive... meh, City will get a fine and that will be that.
Separate names with a comma.
