Wasn't our original fine 50m, of which 30m was suspended?
UEFA likely think they have covered for any discrepancies with the "We failed to be cooperative with the investigation " charge.
We will get the blame
If CAS are ruling on the UEFA due diligence and process, failing to read our compiled evidence etc and find them guilty, then surely they must fully overturn? If it’s not about FFP itself, that will go to an actual court, likely Switzerland.
It’s black and white this, the more I think about it. If they’ve botched their own investigation work then CAS have to throw this away. How could they possibly reduce the punishment if they rule in our favour?
It has to be all or nothing, surely?
Note also that CAS is not a court but an arbitrator.
I'm with you on that - I was thinking exactly the same earlier. City took the pinch no doubt on the understanding that it was an honourable agreement which suited both parties to get it out of the way. As it turns out, there's no honour or principles within UEFA & it's cartel. They change their own rules to suit the chosen few. Now that PSG and the Qatari riches are in the tent pissing out we are very much alone and unless we take UEFA on this time they will keep coming for us at every opportunity they can contrive. Like it or not, I believe it's Shit or Bust time.
that's a very interesting read, particularly the 10 year battle through the ECHR, and deferment of sanctions until such time as due process is complete. That was a fairly simple case too, involving 1 man and a (with respect) minor club in a minor league.
Our situation is obviously more complex and has significantly greater implications.
Really! And here was me thinking...
From Wikipedia "Syed was born in Reading, Berkshire. His father, Abbas Syed, is a Pakistani immigrant to Britain who converted from Shia Islam to Christianity, and his mother is Welsh." - please check sources before you make claims of racism.
But he wasn't smart enough to have sensitive financial conversations on a secure encrypted system as happens in major organisations across the world and even in small local authorities who handle residents' confidential financial data but not on an open email system. We can all agreee that we have been stitched up by UEFA but this whole farce has been a failure of management.
