    We must fight in the league and the EL. We can't afford to sit back.

    We can't even get Top 7, stop talking about Top 5.

    And maybe if City will appeal against it, it could delay everything.

    Yeah let's be honest they'll appeal and it'll be a while before it takes effect

    I suspect City appeal, CAS decide FFP is unenforceable, and the whole thing collapses or City get a far more watered down punishment along the lines of a fine and reduces squad size for Europe.

    Will get overturned or watered down at CAS.

    Will Aguero stick around out of loyalty and in the process spend his last year in Europe not playing in one of the biggest comps?

    If the decision stands, I can't see Pep staying after the summer.

    If FFP is found unenforceable that would change the game massively.

    There’s already been cases go before CAS and they haven’t deemed it unenforceable. They’ll look at two things. The first, have City really done what they’re accused of. The second, is the punishment adequate or excessive.

    This reminds me a bit of the Saracens stuff in Rugby. Deducted 105 points (basically automatically relegating them) and fined £5m. They came out bullish saying they’d appeal but ultimately accepted their punishment because they knew they didn’t have a leg to stand on. They had been trying to get around salary caps by buying players houses and other similar stuff. I imagine City’s main defence will be that UEFA’s rules only exist to penalise Man City and they’re unjust. Something like that. It’s been obvious to everyone that their sponsorships deals have been massively inflated.

    Finally, everyone knew it.

    Have the FA/PL actually done or going to do anything? They have had a huge advantage in the PL through this and them sponsorship deals allowed them to make a huge jump on the competition and where they realistically would be without it.

    The wheels are going to come off when Messi eventually retires.

    He’s a smart man, always been head over heart.

    Poorly worded on my part. I doubt they tear up FFP but they've already shut down an investigation of PSG and that part of Milan's punishment was disproportionate. I'll be shocked if City end up with a 2 year ban.
