Does that mean we only need top 5? We'll still finish 6th :lol:

Hopefully this ban sticks and doesn’t get overturned later

Does this mean that the 5 th place team in Epl qualifies for CL should City end up in top 4?

Wow, never thought this day would happen.

They'll still probably appeal and/or be allowed to enter the Europa though.

Good news. So the feckers can just focus on the League, until that annoying guy move out from Liverpool.

Amazing news! Pep out at the end of the season then. Never thought I'd see the day that UEFA actually clamped down on FFP. Makes me glad that we've got the owners we have

I reckon they appeal and it’s gets reduced it to a year. 5th spot is good enough then?

Insane. I thought it was all 100% corrupt. Maybe it is just Liverpool having bought it all and remove the rivals one by one ;).
Corruption beats corruption etc.

Still don't trust it will hold. They will find a way around it I think.

2 year ban is pretty serious. Sets a precedent, no way does it get completely overturned. Reduced to 1 year and half the fine, maybe.

Why couldn't it be Liverpool :(
Because they are so corrupt that noone finds anything out since all investors are on their side ;). Plus VAR and so on.
LeVARPool got it all with them so far.
It is like GOD is playing playstation and picked Liverpool for this season or something.

Seriously though Liverpool have probably not broken financial fair play at all. It was obvious that City had.

I didn't think EUFA had it in them to pull this off.

I'm genuinely shocked.

Then again, what are the odds of City appealing the decision and getting it overturned, or at worst seeing the punishment reduced?

Like others have said it will be interesting to see if it actually sticks.
