Man City - the new bitters?

If City are found guilty, then surely the owners must automatically fail the 'fit and proper' test as they will have systematically cheated on a major scale. You couldn't trust that ownership to behave again. In my view, the first thing would be an enforced sale of the club and then get stuck into relegations, expulsions etc.

If they're guilty, there's more to come because it's fraud and tax avoidance to consider if you look at what was hacked. I realise the government won't want to go down that path, but they might not have control of it if there's a guilty verdict.

If they're found guilty then there's more to come because the charges only go to 2018 because that's when they caught on that they were being investigated and stopped letting the Premier League have any access to their accounts, God only knows what kind of shenanigans they've been hiding since then.

Isn’t refusing to submit full accounts a breach of the rules in itself? If so, the Prem should start off with that single charge (which should be easy to prove) and  deduct points for that before moving onto the 115 others.

I hadn't realised they'd refused to submit accounts, I thought doing that was a condition of entry into the competition. I just thought they were only not charged more recently because the PL have no evidence of wrong doing and only have prior to that because of the hacks and the subsequent UEFA case.
