    I hope Liverpool get banned next, they must have done something wrong......please

    Seems strange that PSG get away without any punishment....

    Default Man City Banned from Champions League

    Richly deserved punishment Iím sure. The beauty of it is it cements Guardiolaís exit at the end of the season and condemns them to a number of years in the doldrums.

    Furthermore it will hamstring their recruitment and retention of world-class players.

    Not just Champions League.
    It's possible 8th will qualify for Europa League - qualifying round stage though.

    Of course city will appeal to the CAIS. Iím not sure what powers they have to overturn the punishment but assuming they do I suppose they might hope to get it down to a yearís ban rather than two.

    Wondering how deep this cheating goes. What other clubs are involved. Hard enough for teams like Saints without theses rich powerhouses tipping the scaled even further by cooking the books.

    Different sport, but look at how Saracens tried to get round the Rugby Premiership salary cap. I'm sure there are plenty of clever and 'creative' accountants and agents out there creaming off a percentage for finding loopholes and backdoors.

    They will almost certainly have their punishment suspended pending the outcome of the appeal. Reasonably sure City will still play in Europe next season.

    Would be Very good news but we know like Chelsea they will pay their way to revoking it.

    FFP needs kicking anyway. Has made things worse for small clubs like us - not better.

    Guessing it'll just mean one fewer place for English teams?

    Would be great if it did mean 5th gets CL and 8th can be europe next season. No reason at all we can't be aiming for 7th/8th next year. Some might not like Europa league but I'd love to see us back in it with some decent trips. Still amazed we beat Inter not long after playing teams like Dagenham.

    I'd be surprised if UEFA did that. England is its biggest market financially, denying a spot would be shooting itself in the foot. The issue here is the club not the league

    UEFA were/are sh1tting themselves about a breakaway league hence why the coefficient will never stop us having 4 sides in the CL.

    Well one club will probably be keen to breakaway from UEFA now.

    Revenge for having their precious CL anthem booed and mocked.

    Brilliant - nice to see UEFA having a backbone on this, if they could just show that sort of force with racism it would be great.

    Guess Poch will have his pick of the Manchester clubs at the end of the season then as Pep will go, unless United push the panic button early and get rid of Ole.

    Backbone is one thing UEFA don't have. This whole thing stinks, punishing a club for breaking rules brought in to protect the elite club cartel. If UEFA did have a backbone they would bring the likes of Liverpool, Man Utd, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus, Bayern back down to earth, it's these cŁnts that are to blame for the state football is in. This ruling is nothing to celebrate, FFP was designed to stop clubs like us from ever challenging at the top, utterly corrupt.

    Hope they win it this season now. Would rather have City in the CL than ****e like Leicester.

    Apparently the huge sponsership deals with the owners airline were to make the books look good and they also inflated other commercial deals. This I assume gives them plenty of leeway under FFP rules about not running at a loss and ability to spend .

    It was obvious, right from the beginning, that Cteh would get done for this.

    Default Man City Banned from Champions League

    How the fck PSG havenít been done as well as City beggars belief? Exactly the same issue and they donít have the PL money to offset £300 odd on Neymar and Mbappe alone.

    All corrupt and UEFA are as bad as any.
    Now the scousers making a big deal of it from their self righteous bs about being a proper club with history who have got success the honourable way.

    What about our dodgy sponsorship? Will we get banned from Europe for 2 years too?

    That would be punishing the English League for one club, we'll still get 4 places I'd imagine and it'll just drop a place.

    Whether it would be this season though is doubtful, it'll probably get suspended whilst the appeal goes on.

    I'am also not really sure we should be celebrating this, its basically punishing Man City for breaking into the big boys club and upsetting the regulars, that is what FFP basically does, it doesn't make league fairer or more competitive, it keeps the rich elite big clubs from being challenged by a smaller club with outside investment.

    It's basically designed to stop a Blackburn, Chelsea or Man City happening again, so that the likes of Liverpool, Man Utd, Bayern, Real, Barca, Juve etc. get to hoover up all the money and global fans, can't have any upstarts backed by money rocking the exclusive boat.

    This also pretty much guarantees Liverpool the title for the next 2/3 years at least, the only club capable of challenging them is Man City, and this will hamstring their ability to do that.

    I'm very suspicious about United despite their global fanbase. They have spunked a lot of money away without any champions League income...a

    ManU is all about USA business school management. You buy company with massive borrowing, you put numerous members of your family on the board with massive salaries.
    The “club” pay massive interest on debt , then you do global commercial bit then you try to buy a few players to keep it all in play, worst case scenario is you sell it for billions and retire very rich .

    So many liverpool, united and other big club fans making out city are the only club with dodgy finances. They all buy the title, or try to, always have. But they ignore huge wages agents fees etc. Fck the lot of them. As if they wouldn't all love that spending and success.

    Least with city most their fans have been there through league 1 etc and absolutely dross. They have the same latecomers and plastic fans as every other big club out there.

    Hope city win the CL now just to create a few more problems.

    It’s perfect for clubs like us. It gives us an excuse to not spend money.

    I think £41 a year would be well within the FFP limits. But he may want a bit more.
