If this sounds familiar don't worry: here is some help. 1 Don't beat yourself up So, you have a whopping big bill due - so does everyone else. The important thing is to know how much it's going to be and how long it will take to pay off. 2 Don't ignore it Credit cards are maximum-interest-rate loans. Racking up interest on the interest because you're scared of facing it will only add to the problem. 3 Plan better Like all life changes, small increments that become habit are best.

The Beijing branch of the Manchester United supporters club might call it karma. But the fact is that the current woes of the Reds – and the serene brilliance of old rivals Manchester City – are rooted deep in their respective club psyches. And those attitudes are products of the two clubs’ contrasting fortunes over the last 25 years. United’s success has bred a degree of arrogance and complacency within the fabric of the club, as well as attracting owners who had dollar signs, rather than the mist of football glory, in their eyes. Reds fans mocked City as “small-time” and a joke club as the Blues stumbled from indignity to insecurity and back again, their only constant being the fealty of their support. By the time Manchester football history was irrevocably changed, by Sheikh Mansour’s City takeover in 2008, United were a bloated organisation, held together by the iron will and managerial genius of Sir Alex Ferguson. Like the Roman Empire, … [Read more...] about How United’s arrogance and City’s pessimism led to this moment

It is unlikely that many of the Manchester City fans who attended the club's match against Shakhtar Donetsk will have been too concerned about a third day of revelations and leaked emails published by German news magazine Der Spiegel. With their team the reigning Premier League champions, top of the league, and known for playing some of the best football that the English game has seen, most City supporters will refuse to allow allegations that their club deceived Uefa over financial fair play (FFP) rules to detract from pride in their club. Nor will claims that executives ignored internal warnings about striking a sponsorship deal with a Dubai-based construction … [Read more...] about Man City: How damaging are the Football Leaks allegations?
