      Man City's ban means Liverpool could qualify for the Champions League by beating Norwich tomorrow. In the middle of February.

      Brilliant ;D

      Quote
      Manchester City are now facing a Premier League points deduction, as their punishment for “serious breaches” of Uefa Financial Fair Play also represents a breach of the domestic competition’s regulations.

      The defending English champions were on Friday night given the unprecedented sanction of a two-year ban from the Champions League and €30m fine, after Uefa’s Adjudicatory Chamber found the club had overstated its sponsorship revenue in accounts submitted to the European governing body between 2012 and 2016.

      High-level sources say that will force the Premier League to act due to their own licensing, which pertains to Uefa’s Financial Fair Play regulations.

      The issue comes because any club has to supply true information to get a Premier League licence, and that information will have had to have matched that supplied to Uefa.

      It is understood Premier League committees had already discussed potential punishments on the provision that Uefa punished City, and a points deduction is now seen as highly likely.

      A City statement stressed that they will appeal Uefa’s decision at the Court of Arbitration for Sport “the earliest possible opportunity”.

      While there remains the possibility a high-priced legal battle could yet see the Champions League ban overturned, sources do not feel that will be the case with any Premier League punishment due to the specific situation.

      A points deduction would not affect any title race or see them relegated, while the Champions League race has been temporarily rendered moot.

      While no one sees an expulsion from the Premier League as likely, the Football League have recently changed their rules so that any club in that situation must start again in League Two.

      Wouldn't the time to lawyer up be during the trial, rather than after the sentencing?

      Haha haha! Brilliant news! The fine doesn’t matter but the 2 year ban will hit them a lot harder.

      This season just keeps on getting better.

      To think, Pep raised the bar with City to a ridiculous level....until we then raised it again. And now, he will be remembered more for how he more than played his part in getting them a ban from the competition that he was actually signed to win.

      A points deduction similar to Saracens will do.

      talk of relegation to Div 2. The Premier league have been waiting for UEFA to conclude their own investigation lets hope they throw them out.
      Apparently City have said they would rather spend £30 mil on lawyers than give it to UEFA. This could get nasty

      Let them spend the £30,000,000 on lawyers, then still have to pay the fine, costs, & loss of revenue from CL, will make a big impact on their finances, corrupt cheating tw*ts.

      Do you think the appeal will go well for them?

      For what my opinion is worth I think the appeal will be dismissed but the penalty will be suspended for 2 years with the fine increased.
      Of course they then face the same issue as Saracens. They need to stop doing what they are guilty of.
