Football administration is going through a tough time at the moment. FIFA and UEFA are rudderless with their much loved leaders suspended from football activity and it's showing. Without the guidance of Michel Platini, UEFA have decided that the best thing to do is stamp their authority with some wonderfully technocratic nonsense.
The Daily Mail are reporting that UEFA are set charge Man City for this.
To the uninitiated, booing an anthem is bad form. But obviously, that's not a national anthem which holds historic significance, it's the Champions League anthem. And for UEFA to think it's acceptable to open disciplinary proceedings against a club because the Champions League anthem is booed is almost laughable.
Having said that, City fans are not exactly fighting the good fight with their booing of the anthem. They do it because they're not happy with UEFA's decision to fine them Financial Fair Play regulations last year. When you're making Man City fans protesting against FFP look like the good guys, you know you're fighting a losing PR battle.
