Abu Dhabi City being investigate for "financial doping"...

Well, if UEFA did grown a pair …

Previous to that, read a fake news that Abu Dhabi City "promised" to tie up UEFA in years of ruinous litigation suits if they dare so much as threaten sanctions against Abu Dhabi City ...

And after a German newspaper made all those public disclosures … UEFA "promised" to investigate. Cynical me said money talk bullsh*t walk.

We can always dream that if Abu Dhabi City is kicked out of CL Cup, then 5th place Arsenal and 6th place ManU will be fighting for the last CL Cup spot.

And suddenly, Arsenal may have 3 life-lines to qualify for CL Cup next season:
#1 - Win Europa League Cup
#2 - Overtake Chelski to clinch 4th spot
#3 - ABu Dhabi City kicked out and 5th place Arsenal qualified.

We can always dream ...

Not just Wenger. Gazidis as well.

Nobody pinned any hopes on anything. 3.5 mn for mark schwarzer want going to make arsenal breach financial fair play. It read just something used to hide under instead of saying "we lied about new stadium making us more competitive, in the next decade we need to play off loans and will be making a profit every transfer window".

In the latter years they admitted to this when spending 100mn+ on xhaka mustafi etc that the stadium debt and the ridiculously kit deals were a pbm. Nothing has changed, we have a higher ceiling to spend, but we will still not compete with city etc, we are just more open about it and call it self sustaining
