MAN CITY BANNED FROM EUROPEAN CPMPETITIONS

Uefa have announced that Premier League champions Manchester City have been banned from the Champions League for the next two seasons.

If Manchester City lose their appeal then the team which finished fifth in the Premier League might qualify for next season's Champions League.

5th place trophy. Knowing our luck, we'll finish 5th then City will win their appeal

Sad thing is if they lose their appeal we won't even make top 5.

Could make Europa League qualification a better hope though.
If City win the Carabao Cup – they play Aston Villa in the final next month – and the FA Cup is won by a club which finishes in the top six, then as far as eighth spot in the Premier League will be enough to earn Europa League qualification.

Just win the next 13 games … like 1997/98 season.
Arteta will be a legend then.

Wait until Citeh take them to court, lets see if it sticks



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

This is the realistic possibility.

If the ban sticks, it will mostly mean United or Chelsea getting into UCL. Spurs will finish 4th.

City might just collapse and finish out of the top 4 as well.

My main take on this is if the bans sticks. Pep will be gone from City.

We can still realistically finish 5th, even 4th if just looking at the pts differences. But obviously the way we've been all season, our form is very unlikely to pick up that drastically for it to happen.

I don't care too much because it's city, but I think it's a bit draconian when you consider what other clubs have been up to and got away with it.

Mansour could bankrupt the authorities this will be interesting its rich when certain clubs have obviously been flouting the rules for years.

Their English titles should be stripped. This is not too different from match fixing. You are literally buying the league. Hope PSG gets a ban too. And madrid who is bank rolled by government. Fking cheats all of them.

I bet they will still be in next season's CL

Most likely. They have enough lawyers to drag this out.

I was listening to the radio and someone said the ban stands until they win an appeal. I don't know when the appeal will happen. I tend to agree that they'll get away with it, the rich always do. Apparently, a lot of smaller clubs have incurred sanctions, but we don't hear about them.

The charge seems to be about MCitys inflated valuation of its profits and so, to its ability to spend.
One would think that the FA might be looking into this situation as well.

Abu Dhabi just have to threaten to shift its banking to Luxembourg, to Frankfurt and warn France they are going to lose a hefty chunk of investment … and UAE will snub Airbus and buy Boeing ..

Think of the political pressure that UAE, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia can exert on EU and indirectly UEFA.

And also warn UEFA to take similar action against Qatar-owned PSG.

Final warning to UEFA - Emirates and Etihad will stop all advertisements and sponsorships with European clubs … and banned all lucrative European club friendlies in UAE.

Think UEFA will not bow to this kind of punitive financial and political pressures exerted by Abu Dhabi and rest of UAE?

That would be brilliant. We can get rid of the Emirates Stadium tag and name the ground after something to do with our club or the local area.

I'll start the ball rolling with The Arsene Wenger Colosseum.
