Just in case it happens on Friday, here is where we'd be:

Chelsea 55
Man Utd 51
Arsenal 46
Liverpool 44
Tottenham 40
Aston Villa 39
Man City 38
Birmingham 34
Everton 32

Increases the gap to Liverpool, brings Man City a bit closer. Not a whole lot of difference though.

Well it's just brilliant when we win a game when we were on the really bad run and now it doesn't matter.

apparently not. Apparently they will cease to exist.

Its just a rumour just like Moutinho to Everton. The FA will never let a Premier League club go completely bust.

Nothing at all alike. If they can't prove a new owner will pay the bills to the HMRC on Friday then its a very real possibility they could be liquidated. If they weren't a football club they'd already be wound up and the only reason they got an extension.

Also the FA have absolutely nothing to do with it.

Christ you sound like you WANT this to happen. The FA always have something to do with it. Prince William could just tell HMRC to fuck off if he wanted. They will go in to administration, the assets are too valuable (value greatly exceeding the amount in question) to just be liquidated. If they sold every player they'd get about 90m. The tax is only about 14.

I don't really care either which way, but it would be a bit sad.

That said there seems to be some dispute as to whether they can still go into administration. If they go into the hearing on Friday though as is then there is a very serious chance they will go into liquidation.

Yeah my mistake, I saw their result in the Carling cup and thought it was in the Premiership. Fixed it.

as i said previously, they will not go bust

if the taxman closes them down, it will mean closing down clubs all over the country.
is that happens, the cultural and economic knock on effects will be massive.

i appreciate what lord Alan Sugar said about the HMRC having enough and trying to stand up to football clubs, but it just wont happen

admin and -10 pts is what i expect

wont be able to mate, just isnt workable

football clubs and big businesses will continue to get away with huge tax bills for a while to come
