As funny as the decision is you just know City will win the appeal and it'll be the final nail in the coffin for FFP.
Not their first time for the same offence so maybe not

I fancy them to win CL this season on the back of this and then Pep fucks off to manage Qatar

I hope the Premier League punishes them hard too. Perhaps an auto relegation like the Saracens got. Then check the books for Chelski and Liverpool
I have to grudgingly say that I do not think Liverpool has done anything wrong as they are run on a module similar to ours, only they do it better
Did AC Milan overturn this in the end https://bitterandblue.sbnation.com/2019/6/28/19102535/epl-2018-19-season-ac-milan-banned-from-europe-are-manchester-city-next or did they miss out on Europe , so maybe 5th will be good enough.

PS. According to the report on AC Milan even if City lost the appeal their place might go to another country, sure this story will go on to the bitter end. City are guilty and everyone knows it.
Not the case. The club is punished, not the home country. England (Premier League) will retain its 4 spaces in the CL.

The sad reality is that City have unlimited money and will lawyer the shit out of this in CAS. Very likely that the ban will be reduced to one year or overturned completely.

I also think City are most likely guilty as fuck.

Banned from the Champions League for two years is an incredibly serious punishment.

Makes me wonder what Arsenal did to be banned for at least three, probably four.

I texted my Arsenal friend to ask him but he just told me to fuck off, so it must be a touchy subject.

I don't want to take this too far off track, but I think it's fair to say that Batman was hardly a genius detective. I mean every fucking episode was a variation on...

Commissioner Gordon: We found this riddle at the scene of the crime, Batman

Batman: Hmm, this could be the work of the Riddler.

Chief O'Hara: Of course, why didn't we think of that?

:banghead:


I mean he's not exactly Sherlock Holmes, is he?

Apart from that, point taken though. (y)
