    I agree City is fully capable of winning the UCL, but disagree that they are the best team in Europe, even when they are on their game. Remember, this is the team who lost to Norwich and Wolves, while they had Aguero. And they were in the easiest group in the UCL.

    I think they can beat Real Madrid, but Real Madrid is Real Madrid and they do seem to get through one way or the other in the UCL.

    UEFA drops the hammer on Man City:

    Man City faces two-year Champions League ban


    Manchester City faces two-year Champions League ban for FFP violations
    1:30 PM ET

    • Rob DawsonCorrespondent


    Manchester City have been banned from the Champions League for the next two seasons after being found guilty of breaching financial fair play rules, UEFA has announced.

    The reigning Premier League champions will be excluded from the Champions League for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 campaigns. They have also been fined €30 million.

    The ruling is subject to appeal.

    yeah..lol I figured he'd be gone anyway after this or next season, seems to be his MO. He's at a place 2-3 years and leaves because of "burn out", but usually it's actually players getting tired of him trying micro manage their entire lives.

    This will certainly lead to his exit now. Let the “Pep to Bayern” rumors begin!

    Wow! I'll believe it after the appeal runs it's course though. Seems like these things are always retracted/reduced after appeal.

    He was assisted on his second goal, by 17 year old American.
    Small goals.

    Should have guessed that Gio Reyna was Claudio's son.

    I know it was against Valencia, but I really hope Atalanta's cinderella run keeps going. Watched them quite a bit this season in Serie A, and they are fun to watch.

    That son of a bitch scored one and was responsible for one at Anfield when he played for Salzburg in October. I pray to God we don’t see him again this season or next.
