They do, if FFP fails we are in a world where there is no limit on spend, it's a bigger issue than just a couple of teams being relegated
Fair point and I hope you're right.

The cynic in me feels that the lawyers will get called in, and this will get tied up in legal knots ad-infinitum. City have successfully swerved any serious sanction through this method for years, and you can bet your left bollock the Chelsea/Everton lawyers will soon be doing the same.

These documents that the guardian have just reprted on are pretty damning for Chelsea

They sure are, and I hope the PL throw the book at them too.

I'm just wondering how this is all going to play out this season. Could potentially lead to a LOT of uncertainty around the relegation zone as these clubs fight like rats in a sack over the sanctions imposed.

If City were to get a proper penalty like Rangers did and got relegated to the bottom tier they would actually benefit.

They would still be in Europe for 1 season and so will still be getting money and keeping players. If they won that or won the F.A Cup they would continue in Europe as they climbed the leagues.

They would smash that league and win by 100 clear points with 400 goals. there would be documentaries about them, sky would suddenly get interested in the lower leagues and they will be the darlings on the world - (poor poor City,)

Within 4 years they will be back in the Prem with legions of new fans and a real sense of achievement/martyrdom etc.

As a jedi once said "If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you can possibly imagine."

They only got away with it as the charges timed out with UEFA, no such rule in the PL.

You are assuming the players would stay, the Championship/League 1 isn't as easy to escape as Scottish nobody leagues

They wouldn't be in Europe either.

You're assuming their owners would stick around if they got relegated. They'd probably get bored of their toy and find a new project to throw money at.

Never going to happen. Leagues would have to grind to a halt while retrospective points deductions and the knock-on effects to relegation/promotion placings were subject to the legal process
I'm not suggesting retrospective points deductions, and totally agree that would never happen.

I'm talking compensation - West Ham were ordered to pay Sheff Utd 5 million a few years back.

Its been applied for now, but the same thing happened with Tottenham years ago. They effectively bought back the points deduction turning it into a fine, and also got reinstated into the FA Cup, if memory serves. Punishment can always get adjusted.
Ah fair enough.
