Deduct enough to keep them slightly above the relegation zone but far below that any hopes of combating FFP by reaching the European spots is a pipedream.

So in American college football and basketball (corrupt beyond anything UEFA can even imagine) there's this thing called "self-imposed penalties". Team is under investigation for various improprieties, and rather than fighting the obvious, they say "hey, we're self-imposing a scholarship reduction and voluntarily disqualifying ourselves for post-season play for the next season or two. Will that be punishment enough?" It usually is.

If Chelsea had any sense, they'd cop to everything in return for a 20-point reduction and the slate is wiped clean, in the one fluky season a 20-point penalty is almost certainly survivable. Hell, this should be the season for any club with something dodgy on the books to come clean in return for a points penalty, the bottom three are so dire.
 

Arsenal Quotes

Arsène Wenger's idea is not only to play good football. It's to play good football to win. In my day, we knew that with our style we could hurt teams and win trophies too. But we did it our way, with the positional game, passing, movement.
