I've mixed feelings as well, all of them bad, but indeed mixed together.That's the City argument - Not allowing new money is a way of saying we'll keep the status quo - big clubs stay big, small clubs stay small. I'm sure they'll backtrack on that 100% if the Saudis take over Newcastle and outspend City to the title consistently for 5-10 yrs.
Right now the rules say you're not allowed to spend significantly more than what you make as a club. The rules may be fair / unfair depending on your point of view. To basically everyone but the City fans it's obvious that they're cooking the books to make sure they're not in violation of the said rules.
Not trying to be an ass but I will, how in the hell you can have mixed feelings about a club exclusively bought to be a media/brand whore of the Saudis?
