FFP, City 2 year Champions league ban


Juan Nil

Recommended Posts




Massive news and has big ramifications for the rest of the season.

Assuming the CL ban is upheld, we give ourselves a massive chance to qualify for the Champions League and consolidate the good work that's been produced by Frank thus far.

Interesting times ahead for City.

  • Will the appeal be successful?
  • Will Pep stay at the club beyond this season?
  • Will there be a mass exodus by the playing squad?
  • How do they go about rebuilding their squad successfully despite the ban?
  • Will further punishments be awaiting them on the domestic front such as points deduction?
  • Could the City owners consider selling?

Many unanswered questions, but the next few weeks and months are going to be intriguing. A lot of clubs will be cheering this decision today.

Reports they will also be deducted Premier league points too. 

For the current season only or for previous seasons as well? Because if they get docked points for last season then it gives the dippers another PL title... potentially one for United as well depending on how many points are deducted.

If nothing changes, this might impact Man City so much that they might feel like they did a Leeds United or like it was some Calciopoli type of thing.

I expect it would be this season only.

I've been reading up on this, trying to figure out why City have received the ban when PSG didn't.

It seems that PSG helped UEFA at every step of their enquiry, whilst City have categorically blocked theirs. Interestingly, after PSG were cleared of official wrondoing, their owner was appointed as a EUFA ambassador which screams corruption, but hey-ho. Seems that the ban and fine imposed on City is more of a message to all other clubs: don't try and fight UEFA.

Looking at the City have responded, it looks like they are going to continue fighting the sentence and try to drag out a long expensive legal battle to reduce the ban. If that works, it makes a laughing stock of UEFA. If it doesn't there must be similar ramifications for all clubs who try and fight UEFA in their enquiries, hugely increasing their authority.

It's all quite worrying for football, bloody politics getting involved and ruining the game.

As expected, City's appeal has been registered by CAS.

I wonder how long this will take, and will the ban be postponed until CAS make their decision? It's not just something City need to know, this is something that effects the whole league, we all need to know where we stand with European spots being up for grabs.
