    That may have been the plan. However many of these clubs have huge debts to service with no immediate prospect of revenue with coronavirus. Competitions, gatherings and travel may be restricted for some time. "A new invitation-only European Super League" may have been feasible but now could equally be folly opening a Pandoras Box that could badly backfire and see the end of them. A new competition could emerge although not necessarily what the G14 clubs have in mnd.

    On one side we have a debt free, profitable, investment rich City with CFG and owners around the world but failing FFP against a proposed new European cartel league started by FFP compliant but potentially bankrupt clubs, carrying debt and needing to secure new sponsorship and investment. I would say their plans now look scuppered.

    I think he’s devious and delightful at the same time. A wonderful combination.

    I think you meant UEFA rather than FIFA.

    I'm surprised at the article which said that CAS upheld the legality of FFP, as I didn't think that was even within CAS's remit to look at. But our appeal is on the basis of due process, as you say. The process was akin to a Stalinist show trial, with the verdict known in advance and the defendant not allowed to mount a proper defence. There's the whole issue around the settlement agreement and whether UEFA even had the right to re-open this case at all. That's before any of their accusations about our conduct are even tested.

    I looked that up. It’s the day of the death of Julius Caesar who was stabbed 23 times. You learn something new every day.

    Just recently finished watching the four series of it. A devious, lying little shit who had my blood boiling at times and I was hooked. I then went on to watch Breaking Bad. It was nice to see and know the history of the characters and once again: old Heisenberg and young Jesse had my blood boiling once again because of their sheer stupidity. Alas, I was hooked and now have a huge amount of respect for Vince Gillian and Bob Odenkirk. Geniuses.

    Ah! Well remembered. Do you recall a rather attractive Alma Sedgewick from Coronation Street? Those eyes!!

    Well if it is true that they are going to CAS with “NOTHING first hand, it's truly unbelievable” then it will be the shortest hearing in the history of CAS.
    Unbelievable indeed.
    Love to be proved wrong in the fullness of time though.
