Sean, I get where you’re coming from but I just don’t think you can retrospectively change what’s happened on the field of play.
It won’t be any of the above and it certainly won’t be a points deduction now or in the future it’s UEFA’s rules that have been broken and it’s in UEFA competitions that any punishment must be served.
I also think UEFA are running scared of any legal challenges in the Courts to any major punishment too which could bring the roof down on FFP completely. But we’ll see.29th May 2019 at 10:20 am #41740sean the sailorParticipant512 pts
Fair points nine but I’m talking about points reduction before the season starts etc.29th May 2019 at 10:25 am #41741
Sean, I get that mate but City have broken UEFA’s rules so if guilty they have to be punished in a UEFA competition.
Like I say I don’t want to see titles decided by points deductions but it won’t be in this instance it has to be a punishment related to UEFA competitions.28th June 2019 at 2:50 pm #42860
“Milan banned from Europa League for one year after FFP breach. Milan has struck a deal with Uefa to serve a one-year ban from European football for breaching the governing body’s financial fair play rules, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) has confirmed.”28th June 2019 at 3:23 pm #42861maverick1973Participant625 pts

I’m not sure why City chose to go in this direction you can’t stop a UEFA investigation.
City will still have the right to appeal against any UEFA findings/punishment.
“Manchester City have failed in an initial bid to have the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) halt Uefa’s investigation into a possible breach of Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.
City have been referred to Uefa’s financial watchdog, the Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) and if found guilty could face a Champions League ban.
Cas said City’s appeal was “inadmissible” at this stage because the CFCB has not yet determined what, if any, punishment would be applied if they were found guilty.
The club, who deny wrongdoing, had argued that Uefa did not have the authority to bring an FFP case against them.
Uefa launched an investigation after German newspaper Der Spiegel published leaked documents alleging City had inflated the value of a multimillion-pound sponsorship deal, misleading European football’s governing body.
Reports alleged City deliberately misled Uefa so they could meet FFP rules requiring clubs to break even.
The Premier League champions, FA Cup and League Cup winners were fined £49m in 2014 for a previous breach of regulations.

Well these “reports” of the “alleged” wrong doing need to exposed, UEFA, just do it and lets see what happens. Why in there due diligence prior to this not picked up on any wrong doings? They need to look at there own organisation….again15th November 2019 at 9:24 pm #53000Brian blueParticipant480 pts
Innocent until proved guilty, too many have the hangman’s rope out. If City are found guilty I would be the first to say “justified” but there are too many dark corners in this, including UEFA,der Spiegel.
On Chukys proposal of 75 Million cap ok but one of the biggest problems in football is the new level of transfer costs a very large proportion goes to Agents, so we have brown envelopes flying around…why are UEFA, Fifa not tackling this, which dwarfs and inflates everything The whole thing needs clarity, which we will never see
