That's so weird. Why does his dad get 20 million? The club aint paying for his Dad haha. I get Mino taking his leech fee but why the money for his Dad?
His dad seems to be involved in managing him with Mino

No chance mate. City have absolutely endless money. Covid wont be impacting them at all.
Swiss rambler putting Jodly in the mud.


A lot of their pre-covid transfer and wage planning would have been built off modelling factoring in steady revenue increases. Not a substantial decrease. Throws a lot of calculations out the window.



They lost 15m in gate takings and 60m broadcasting in 19/20 off a quarter season impacted by covid. 2020/21 will be a whole season for gate takings (60m lost) and who knows what impact it will have on commercial and broadcasting.



It has affected everyone.






It has affected everyone.



tl;dr version. Before speaking on something Jod, maybe understand what you're talking about.

Manchester City posted losses of nearly 200m in 2010/11. That didn't stop them from going on to become by far the biggest spenders of the last decade. Nobody is doubting that they've lost money. Every club has lost money during the pandemic. Chef rightly called bullshit on Pep's claims that they cant afford to buy players which just isn't true.

Covid has had a far greater effect on the rest of the league than City has, that much is certain.

City have only been able to buy new players for the last decade with gate receipts, money from drink and food at home games and sponsorship money. Get with the program.

Lol.

Why dont you understand life mate.

Nobody is saying Covid hasnt hit City. It has hit all football clubs. No club is making a profit right now.

But that doesnt mean City are strapped for cash. Their owner is worth 22 billion. 22 BILLION!!

He also has two wives. TWO!

I don't think that's the positive you make if out to be.

You'll understand one day.
