    Man City is facing the possibility of a 1 year Champions League ban for violating FFP rules. They’re also facing a transfer ban in a separate investigation.

They were in the 8th tier of the pyramid when they took over and either won their league outright or made the playoffs every season.
    Couple of others of note, at least to me. Leyton Orient earned the automatic promotion back to the Football League from which they were relegated in 2017 after a 112 year run. Lincoln City are promoted to League One just two years after their run to the FA cup quarters as a nonleague side.

    Villa took the first semifinal in the Championship playoffs in penalties after West Brom eaked out a 1-0 "win" at the Hawthorns. Regular and Extra time ended in a 2-2 aggregate draw. Derby and Leeds will settle the other slot today.

    Another big comeback on aggregate in what is rapidly become "the English way."

    Sunderland punched their ticket to the League 1 playoff final with a 1-0 win over Portsmouth. After consecutive relegations, they have a chance to get back to the Championship. They’ll face the winner of Charlton/Doncaster, who play their 2nd leg today with Charlton up 2-1.

    Luton and Barnsley got the automatic promotions from League 1.

    Vincent Kompany is leaving Man City. He signed a 3 year contact to be player/manager for Anderlecht, the club he started his career with, coming out of their youth program and making 103 appearances over 3 seasons. Anderlecht finished 4th in the Belgian 1st Division then finished 6th in the championship playoffs and did not qualify for European competition after playing in the Europa League in 2018-19. Anderlecht finished the season with a caretaker manager, having sacked their manager in December and his replacement in April.
