    Of course it is because where they finish doesn't count for qualification for any European competition

    Though I agree with you as I said before I'll believe it when I see it. Saying that the 5th place this season could get the Champions league spot so they'll have to make a final decision pretty quickly. And there's no point fining them as money means nothing to them when you have a bottomless pit. Unless the people at the FA are looking a bumper Christmas bonus.

    I cant remember the ins and outs

    Something like £200m through the correct channels and £200m through another way which didnt show up on their books.

    Can anyone confirm this.
    That is what many have rumoured to be the case. Apparently a lot of their best players are having their wages 'topped up' via a number of sources 'off the books'.

    It will count, if the ban gets overturned.

    Yep, I had it as less than that, but with that 200m and about 80m of dodgy sonsorship that puts them a LONG way past the Premier League's 105m deficit threshold for 2016-2019 so they should retrospecitvely dock them 12 points for each season

    I hope now everyone who moaned about the owners not spunking all our money away on players will appreciate why they haven't done it and chose to invest into the structure of the club after this.
