Can see this getting very legal now it’ll be appeal after appeal as City look to outspend UEFAs lawyers.

My guess is it gets reduced to 1 year on appeal and City accept it and move on.

Be interesting to see what the impact is 1 year out I can see players accepting 2 years might be hard to take.

Now city are banned from the CL for 2 years does 5th get their spot?
Yes but my guess is City will be lodging enough appeals that any ban will eventually be deferred for a year until the appeals are heard.

I can’t see CAS ruling on this case within the next few months.

It was a suspended sentence so it’ll be upheld.

Whatever happens, something will happen to city. They have got to make an example of them otherwise everyone will be getting away with it. I say just give us the league when we came second, that will do haha.

I think 2 full seasons of no CL will see the bandwagon City fans desert them in droves. Forever the noisy neighbors.

2 seasons out of CL also means CL revenue so spending will be restricted again as they look to rebuild.

Premier League May also punish them if they’re proven to have submitted false accounts to them as well.

If Pep did leave that’s city gone ,no Pep no trophies.
Wouldn’t go that far, they still have the financial clout to buy the best players. Obviously not being in the CL (probably will win on appeal) won’t help attracting those sort of players but doubt it’ll be a disaster for them. I think with them it’s how they replace guys like David Silva, Aguero/Fernandinho when they go and they still haven’t replaced Kompany either.

Financial clout yes look what we’ve spent in 7 years and look where we are and replacing silva Fernandinho probably aguero is impossible like replacing class of 92

Losing Pep would certainly hurt them as a team he’s a fantastic coach but it all depends how they replace him they look like a club who already have that succession plan in place.

I think so far they’ve done some clever buying to future proof the team signing Bernardo Silva and Rodri before David Silva and Fernandinho retire. The one they have got wrong was Kompany they backed John Stones that didn’t really work out and it’s left them short at the back.

I felt City would look to go big this summer to sort their problems but that might to tough now

imagine if the FA look into it too, and then take away their titles and give them to 2nd place :)

Anyway, back to reality, I think it will probably get halved like Chelsea's. If the FA look into and drop points, it wont matter as they wouldn't qualify for CL anyway.

City have so much money, it wouldn't surprise me if it gets dropped completely.

If Pep goes, I'm not sure it would be because of this, but it's a good excuse for him to get out. Poch in.

Ok so just say they get Banned for 1 year , they’ve got David silva, Kompany , Fernandinho, Aguero, to replace then Pep goes and Poch comes in who hasn’t won anything , I think this could be bad time’s for City even if they spend millions to put rite doesn’t guarantee anything. Just got to think of a way to get rid of Klopp now ahaha
