    You don’t have the right to request that information/evidence. Quite rightly too

    You're right, the two blond mops, although neither as impressive as Tolmie's, which almost doubled his height.

    I enjoyed the mid eighties City as I thought we had hit rock bottom and were on our way back. I may have been guilty of being too optimistic, something I have NEVER repeated where City are involved.

    That was the point being made.

    Someone (several have actually) suggested that our auditors would be in the firing line.
    My thought, which PB agreed with (if I understand right), and matches your comment, is that the auditors would look at the incoming money and sign off which sponsor it came from. Where the sponsor got the money from is out of jurisdiction, and probably interest.

    So I think we all have the same opinion on that side.

    You also suggested, and I'm paraphrasing here, that the auditors would sign off on what was claimed as FFP-exempt. That makes sense to me, but wasn't something I was commenting on.

    Funny you should mention Bayern Munich and Qatar in the same sentence as one of Bayerns shirt sponsors are Qatar Airways.

    Coincidence or am I just being a bit thick?

    Unless we've fucked up and are guilty the £1m settlement is the biggest fuck up the club has probably ever made.

    I think you are bang on the money here.

    Regarding the Der Speigel articles, which highlighted some snippets of our hacked emails. I understand our defence is that the emails were taken out of context.

    What I am failing to understand, is why has Der Speigel not dug through the stolen material to add additional information that would put their original leaks into full context?

    Someone has access to the full database of stolen info. Could it be that the additional information within those email threads does not incriminate us? Maybe the incriminating emails were selected deliberately to cause maximum damage to us, in the knowledge that they were not the full story.
