Sound of Football Podcast 524 - Citizens' arrest

The Premier League has charged Manchester City with over 100 breaches of its financial rules. Will the charges stick or will City walk away with nothing more than a slapped wrist as they did before when UEFA tried to take them on?

What are the possible long-term ramifications of this action? Will the generous owners of the club stick around if their team are sanctioned heavily by points deductions, transfer embargoes, relegation or even the removal of their titles and honours? Who among the 19 other clubs in the English top flight are driving this on? Could this also be a pre-emptive action to warn clubs like Chelsea and Newcastle against excessive spending in the future?
