    expunge the name and the face from your memory, he should not occupy even a molecular particle size share of space there.

    It was obviously originally leaked out of UEFA by someone. I think it was probably disinformation so the Athletic was duped.
    Something similar happened to the Times when they, along with others, were briefed to run a story saying City would be banned "within days." That leak started within UEFA but eventually came to the media via one of our commercial rivals. I think the Times were not happy about being duped on this story and since then their coverage has been much smarter and much more fair and balanced. I am also sure that the subsequent story they ran about Liverpool''s hacking of City was linked to this episode.

    Most of those defeats were in games against Everton or Liverpool which purely coincidentally he was almost invariably given to officiate. One of the draws was at Stoke. Micah scored a late goal for City but Stoke equalised deep into injury time. As he walked off after the final whistle Walton fist pumped the Stoke fans.

    The corrupt bastard now has a cosy sinecure as BT Sports' go to referee in the studio.

    Simply because we have to have a watertight case. He will explore every avenue from technicalities, to loop holes to evidence and everything in between. If you can pick a hole in the prosecution then it raises the doubt that everything else has been done correctly.

    I rather think UEFA leaked that to Sam Lee in good faith on the basis that they were going to offer to find City guilty on a technicality and levy a small fine and no ban. The fact that City apparently told UEFA where to shove their offer led to their about turn and a ridiculously swingeing punishment and Lee ended up with egg on his face.

    We've been on his case for years, he must be a pro at following instructions.

    Lee could have been a leaker and they were trying to confirm it?

    Only a guess mind.
