They may be champions, but Matthew Benham could teach them a few tricks

21 May

Yesterday saw yet another reason why I’m glad I support a club like Brentford. Premiership winners Manchester City have barely had time to let their celebratory Barclay’s brand champagne go flat before the latest problem has hit Manuel Pellegrini and his team.

Of course, City are still coming to terms with the consequences of breaching the UEFA financial fairplay rulings, with the imposition of a transfer cap and a £49million fine. Just to put that into context, that’s 16 and a bit Lewis Grabban’s at today’s prices  (and does make me wonder just how much money Vincent Tan has?)

Now, however, they have to put up with Yaya Touré and a hissy fit.

To read the rest of this article, season 2013/14 is now available to download onto Kindle, in full. Containing previously unseen content, you can do so here for less than the cost of one matchday programme.

 Thanks for reading over the course of the campaign. For now I need to make space on this page for any follow up.  The ‘close season’ / World Cup columns continue in full, further on in this site.
