    I have faith in the owners at our Club.

    The accusations that we have acted like Cowboys dont cut it with me,it is simply an MSM smear campaign.

    Our owners are Billionaire businessmen with interests all over the Globe.

    They have the best lawyers, and accountants, money can buy.

    Based on what i have read in the News and from informative posters on this forum.The whole UEFA case was based on stolen,extremely contentious emails.Said emails they are not even sure who the recipient was,seeing as "HH" could have been a whole number of people in the Country.

    UEFA interpreted the emails as conclusive proof of an FFP violation.Even though UEFA were not 100% who the fuck "HH" really is.And they had no idea in what context said emails were sent,they could have been part of a much larger conversation.

    To cover for the glaring discrepancies UEFA charges us with failing to assist their investigation.reason being Manchester City FC would only send UEFA proof of our innocence, rather than the smoking Gun they wanted.

    Hence why this wont stop at the CAS hearing.

    You can see what will happen at the CAS - reduced 1 year ban, reduced fine. UEFA's get out clause in the eyes of the media/cartel clubs

    Thing is we cannot and should not accept, and if the supposed Ceferin attendance back in November is anything to go by, then we will not accept something that admits we are wrongly guilty

    This has come to a pivotal point now with UEFA's action, a point where we have said enough is enough. We take any reduced punishment and fine and you can bet your last £1 coin that in the future UEFA will again try to punish our club/owner and extract monies in terms of a fine etc....

    We have categorically stated no wrong-doing

    So ignored them rather than be ignorant of them

    that's the way i see it too mate, they haven't followed due process so CAS should throw it out, which would normally mean a new investigation if they so wish, but the problem with that is the 5yr statute of limitations has now well passed

    but of course with uefa anything could happen

    All fair points.

    Im placing faith in Preswitch blue and Sam Lee in the Athletic who have both suggested we were offered a reasonable way out but we didnt accept.

    You're point about the deal not being acceptable makes sense but then if you follow that through -then UEFA expect city will reject the offer and they will us ban us for 2 years. To force this situation they must have some confidence that their position will hold up ar CAS. A loss for UEFA would almost be as disastrous as for City.

    As nothing is in the public domain its speculation at the moment. Will be interesting to see how this all unfolds.

    Hacked emails can't be used as evidence so it is likely city will of provided evidence to counter it.

    Don't forget the UEFA 'jury' isn't one of a criminal court, it's like asking a few blokes down the pub if someone is guilty.

    CAS will be far more rigorous and critical of process rather than the result and it's the process that city will look to tear apart.

    City can already demonstrate a poor process because UEFA 'judges' were leaking citys punishment before the court had started to sit......

    In a regular court that case would be null and void.

    Fair enough. However, you did specifically single out the racism accusation, so you can understand my confusion.

    Hopefully somebody can clear this up for me?

    Uefa have since stated their findings and how they reached a punishment won't be released until after CAS have now ruled?

    How do CAS rule unless they are made privy to those findings, in what is bound to be a very public TV case, regardless of reporting restrictions?
