    Spy gate?

    This is news to me...anyone else heard of this?

    The Football Association have confirmed they have ended an investigation into allegations Liverpool hacked Manchester City's scouting database.

    Back in 2013, Mirror Sport exclusively revealed City's online scouting network had been hacked by a rival Premier League club who accessed their database of player targets.

    The Times claimed last September that Liverpool made a £1million payment to City in a confidential settlement over the data breach.

    The FA have confirmed a settlement between the clubs over the scandal but opted not to proceed with their investigation having received information from both clubs.

    Guardiola said: “Today there are not secrets any more. Look what happened in the big governments in the states and Russia and everywhere everyone knows it.

    “No secrets anymore. You want to keep a secret? Don’t tell to a friend, on devices or mobile phone, today anything can happen.

    I've been following this for a while. It was alleged that a couple of ex Man City staff on our payroll accessed Man City's scouting database seven years ago. We paid them £1m. Because we came to a settlement and because a long period of time has elapsed since the incident the FA can't/won't take any further action. The members of 'Blue Loon' are apoplectic with rage. They were hoping we'd get the whole library (not just a book) thrown at us with a points deduction large enough for them to be able to win the league.

    Back in the day there was a scouting network called scouts. We're you paid them for all info on nearly every player playing in a competitive league around the world including youth players. Now it's widely available but back then it was a big thing. And If I remember right we poached a couple of scouts from City about that time and there are claims the new scouts logged into the City Info and gave it all to Liverpool.

    If we had poached their signings maybe its LFCs fault we have made them spend 1 and half billion in the last 10 years on players.
