I think this is not what the resident legal experts said. I understood CAS would judge the case completely anew. @projectriver ?
CAS will go through the whole matter de novo (afresh) based on both sides' submissions and the evidence presented. They will consider the application of the rules including limitations, the relevant rules and, if it finds UEFA were entitled to review matters from 2012-2016 (City say UEFA were not for a number of reasons), it will consider the substantive matters ie whether City did, in fact, breach the rules. I agree we will probably not get a full view of the judgment until some weeks after the summary of the decision.

Are you of the opinion that UEFA have additional information other than the leaks given their lawyers have obviously advised them to pursue this in court?

Suspect its the leaks plus the information already in their possession from before 2016/17. And obviously anything else shared in the appeal process.

I just don’t see how you can say that Tolm. I don’t think City or UEFA have any inkling whatsoever. We may be confident in our evidence but let’s be honest, OJ Simpson was bang to rights and a court let him walk free.
And amazingly he didn’t play for the scum or the dippers

Not 100% sure at the moment...

They banned us for 2 years plus the fine, there was no way once we took it to CAS that UEFA would back down and say 'You know what? Forget about it.' They're not pursuing anything, they're frantically defending their actions.

CAS are not there to determine our supposed quilt they will judge on the process
A short explanation of the verdict will be published with a comprehensive one at a later date
I don’t think that’s correct is it? They aren’t just looking at the process, they are looking at the facts, and giving their view on whether we actually breached the rules. If we are not guilty of anything, but uefa have followed the correct process, then we are still not guilty
