Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Apparently it depends on where they finish. If they escape the drop, they get the -10 this season so will get relegated anyway. If they finish in the relegation zone, they get the penalty next season. I believe the rule was brought in due to Leeds going into administration right at the end of the season in 2007 to avoid having the penalty in League One, which they were 99% likely to drop into by that time anyway.
