I'd want us to win before the Everton game, I know its improbable, but imagine getting a guard of honour at goodison.
The entire april and may will be carnival.

Will City be punished with a points deduction or relegation? It seems possible.
After the draw tonight, Leicester are 23 points behind on 50 and can get a maximum of 86. We need 14 for the title. 5 wins now not 6.

I'm not sure when any deducted points would actually be deducted, so for me it's still 6 wins.

I really hope we clinch it before any points deduction is enacted (although I'm sure that will be suspended pending appeal-- unless they don't appeal in order to write off this season where they are already hopelessly behind rather than roll it over onto a new season?), because it would be a real let-down to find out we won it X games ago.

Would the PL deduct points prior to a decision on City’s appeal? What a mess.

Did the premier league say that they would be investigating this ?

Anyway still sticking to 6, can write it down to 5 after the match against Norwich.

Yes they are independently investigating it too but for a different period of time than UEFA's 2012-2016 time frame. I might be overdoing the glee here, but in theory the EPL could carry out a points deduction following the same reasoning as the UEFA chamber for that period of time and then impose a relegation to League Two later when their own investigation into the years since 2016 is complete. Don't quote me on that though, it's a very early and bleary-eyed morning.

Probably decide that after we've had our celebration of winning this one and then do a retrospective point deduction for the previous seasons. Like 5 points being deducted.

No need to go overboard on their points or be too harsh to relegate them to League 2. That's just ridiculously stiff. 3 points deducted for every season starting from 13/14 and announced on 01 June 2020 would be more than sufficient ;)

would that ensure that the manures don't get the title still ?

14 more points to go, even assuming that Citeh win all their matches , and looking at how mentally fucked Citeh will be, 3 wins ought to do the job. 4 to rule out Leicester.

That leaves matches against Watford , Bournemouth & West Ham ....atleast 2 of them who'll be attempting to do with Norwich did and park 6-7 in the back.

88 pts will win it. City draw two games, one of which is against Leicester or they lose one, and I hate to say it but it will more likely be United again than Leicester, weirdly. The earliest we can get to 88 is by beating West Ham at home (Win: Draw: Lose 95:3:2 chance) Watford away (80:9:11) Bournemouth at home (90:5:5) Everton away (70:20:10).
But as in bingo and opera, it ain't over till the two fat ladies sing.
