We have to keep reminding ourselves that Roman does not want to challenge FFP. Together with the owners of other high income clubs he actively wants FFP to be enforced. In terms of enforcement, it is early days so let's see how uefa handle themselves over the next couple of accounting periods, particularly with reference to sponsorship deals which they said all along they would be examining very closely. If City's coach and horses pass safely through then FFP is in trouble

I don't think it's early days. Those sponsorships have been official for well over a year and it's still not challenged.

City have gone from a very modest revenue stream of EUR 169m in 2011 to a revenue stream of EUR 316m in 2013. That's two years... Anyone who even contemplate this have been done within the spirit of FFP is mad.

It's blatant cheating.

PSG has had an even crazier "development". In 2011 they weren't even top 30 in Deloitte's money league (Sunderland was number 30 with EUR 88m) to be number 5 in 2013 with EUR 400m.

It's a joke and makes a mockery of FFP.

Say what you want about Roman, but at least we were already a top club in terms of revenue before he bought us. Yet we are the only club that gets criticised? How does that work?

Well I'm not sure we are the only ones. And we don't really know what UEFA is going to do (yet). But it will get interesting soon.

I'm exaggerating. City and PSG are obviously cheating and you'd have to question Real and Barca.

WTF is this? Makes a billion and one excuses for City and then basically calls Ramires a s**t Fernandinho, suspiciously oblivious to the fact if he'd played they'd have been playing in different positions anyway and obviously has no idea of his role....

The media are pathetic.........for months they were crticising Jose for not picking Mata, the the results picked up and they went quiet. Then we sold him, and they said we were mad. The bloke we bought to play CM with the money used from the sale, then helps us to win at City and suddenly they are saying what a great decision it was........they basically are massive hypocrites.

The coverage of the City game is embarrassing.

I think City are slightly stronger than us, but we were hardly plucky underdogs. It was two £200-300m teams facing each other. A Chelsea victory came only as a massive, Earth-shattering surprise to the journalists stupid enough to believe one team, any team, were unbeatable.

It really is amusing how how the press can barely afford a day of positive Chelsea vibes. It's like they have this emergency "bad Chelsea news" file stored somewhere safe.

To be honest, I thought the response from the media was positive after our win. They did acknowledge our superiority in this game and admitted that we could have easily won with a bigger margin.

The fact that they anticipated a conservative tactical approach isn't anything for us to complain about. If we're honest, we all expected it.

They really had to acknowledge our win, they would lose all credibility if they didn't. This isn't about that. It's about the aftermath of the aftermath.
