    I don't understand why they still feel the need to (alledgedly) cheat, when they already have all the best manager and players.

    Not the first time they’ve been investigated! Got away with it previously

    Just to clarify for anyone who hasn't read about it, they are being investigated for historical financial irregularities (2014 & 2015). Whether they are "still" allegedly cheating; there hasn't been anything mentioned about it.

    It's a current investigation, therefore the dates are immaterial.

    Shit! I didn't think of that. Can you tell UEFA that the dates are immaterial, in case they think they're important to their investigation for some reason.

    It's when they are first discovered that counts. Even if they are from 2015, it doesn't make them any less of a violation. It just means they have been (alledgedly) well hidden.

    Missing the point, as usual.

    You're 100% correct... Except that it doesn't mean that they are "still" cheating, does it? Which is what you suggested.

    If someone hasn't heard/read any of the stories about it and just saw your post, they'd assume that they are being investigated for a current situation because of the terminology you've used... That's all I was saying.

    Here we go on another detour ...

    It is a current situation. Cheating is cheating, no matter when you do it.

    Donít know why you bother... of course they will continue investigation to date if they find something. You can argue this clown for two pages, and then he suddenly has no opinion on the matter.. Only after bites...

    Another detour? You could have just let my post stand instead of arguing the toss about it not being important when the alleged infractions took place (despite you wondering why they are "still cheating").

    It's almost like you thought that you might be have wrong about something and instantly went on the defensive - when I wasn't even having a go at you.

    You are taking the meaning of still in the wrong context. For the record they also had the best manager and players back in 2014, so my comment is valid.

    Why should I let your BS stand? You were trying to make yourself look clever, but it didn't quite work out for you this time

    They’ll just pay a hefty fine I expect

    I love it. "taking still in the wrong context"

    BTW if they are found to have violated the rules, any punishment will be applied to their present position, so it is certainly a current event.

    Read it very slowly, and maybe get someone to help you ... "I don't understand why they still feel the need to (alledgedly) cheat, when they already have all the best manager and players."

    How could I take your present tense ("still feel") in the wrong context?! Silly me.

    Their alledged cheating has only just been discovered, so I am speaking in the present moment, and it hasn't been proven yet, so it is still an accusation.

    Since it is an accusation it is possible that it didn't happen, in which case they could not have "felt" the need. Time to get the English books out old chap, you need to brush up a bit

    It all depends on whether an allegation can be viewed in the past tense or not, i.e. what if it didn't happen? I only got an A level in English, so I am not an authority on this stuff

    So I could say 'I don't understand why Michael Jackson still feels the need to (allegedly) abuse children' and that would make sense?

    My sentence was in relation to Manchester City having the best players, which was true in 2014, so it's a different context.

    An allegation can't be spoken of in the past tense until it has been proven, as we don't know if it occured or not.
