Man City deducted 20 points. Everyone else deducted 3 points.
There isn't oneAs a fan of a club not part of the "greedy six", I do want there to be punishments.
However, it's a tricky one. Because I also agree that it's not fair to punish the managers (especially those like Pep, who deserve huge credit for speaking out), or players like Bruno, Milner or Rashford, who had the balls to speak out against it.
So I'm not really sure what punishment could be levied that would be 'fair'.
To me sooner or later this will happen. Especially when those greedy cnuts are left managing the boards of those clubs. It’s much bigger than losing one or two seasons.Yeah, I'm concerned about our players so I'm selfish. Good call.
They didn't break any rules of football.They tried it and backed down. Its an extreme comparison but if you conspired to commit a crime and then attempted it but stopped halfway through when it became obvious you couldn't pull it off, you're still punished. Conspiracy to commit murder and attempted murder are still crimes.
Nice non-sequitur.Remind me to hire you when I'm being prosecuted for attempted murder.
Sure, the UEFA will ban them all the biggest names and the TV companies won’t mind one bit.Could Uefa ban the clubs for next seasons competitons?
There have to be punishments. Maybe the PL should give them all a 10 point deduction or something. It would be quite fair imo.
Exactly my thoughts too.The manager and players having nothing to do with it hardly matters, does it? Clubs have been punished in the past for things that have nothing to do with managers or players. That's how punishing clubs tends to work.
Manchester United as a club signed up to this nonsense, so I have no issue with Manchester United as a club being punished (along with the others). The manager and players will be rightly annoyed and they can direct their ire upward at those who dropped them in this mess.
The PL is the biggest league in terms of revenue so in case of a status quo the so called big 6 have far less to lose than a Real Madrid or a Barca.Rumour going round that the English clubs jave been bribed by UEFA to leave the Super League with the Spanish clubs seen as the main enemy here. So I doubt there will be an European ban
Exactly, they would win in courts and even ask for damages if they would suffer some from these decisions.Because legally the clubs did nothing wrong - I think that has been established. They have been greedy, arrogant, selfish etc - but there is no law against that. But every law-professor looking at it says - legally they probably would have won
So its impossible to punish them - nor would it be wise
