    City have been charged by the FA regarding doping tests, or rather the inability of their players to be available when An Inspector Calls ( a classic play)

    I saw a version a couple of years ago in Shrewsbury, brought back memories of English classes. Although the acting was better than we managed at school.

    They should have points deducted for this IMO.

    nothing about us v them as it woud benefit utd more than us but... come on if they can't manage the doping stuff right then they should be hit as hard as possible.

    and snap. <laugh>

    "It is understood the information was not updated following a change to training routines."

    Apparently all Man City first team players train individually on different days <doh>

    And United too since they're almost in the same city, or at least the same county, and may or may not therefore be involved.

    I think we just have to assume that they are in some way involved, even if just by association <ok>

    It's an admin issue relating to not updating records relating to players addresses e.g. when they've moved out of a hotel and into a house, or if they've moved a players training session with the U23's to the first team or academy to U23's etc

    There's no allegation of missed tests as a result as far as I'm aware.

    Hardly surprising that reds are shouting for a points deduction though, lol. They'll get a fine equal to about 15% of Ya Ya's weekly wage.

    If we see bicycling having to come down hard and we see wwiii starting over russian cheating but then turn a blind eye to city basically not taking the system seriously then what does that say?

    They should be ****ing hammered for it.

    It doesn't say that specific players weren't available, it says that the records weren't completed correctly, you're adding your own narrative.

    its quite simple if drug tester turned up and found they couldn't find all the little dears then city should be hammered. It says it all about football and england that it can get on a high horse about russia and others but when bradley wiggins looks dirty then retires post haste nothing is said or done and... well.... here we are forgiving city for a "minor" administrative error.

    They are likely to just get fined. One point, all these fines, where do they go exactly and is there proof they are going to said places?

    No, they'll get fined for it.

    You're making a correlation that is a huge leap from what's been stated so far.

    As what you're suggesting is that it was or could be - deliberate i.e. that they knowingly got players locations wrong in order to fox drug testers. That would make City guilty of club lead drug cheating, really??? Come off it.

    I'm saying they clearly have not taken their obligations seriously and they should be hammered.

    Its like this: http://www.bbc.com/sport/cycling/38593516 nobody seems to care about this.... but they all love to hammer the russinas in the press.

    Their system obviously has flaws, and they should be brought to book over it, but to suggest it's anything other than an admin issue is a huge leap.
