As potentially doomsday like as your post reads I have to say I agree with every word of it. FWIW I am very confident we are totally innocent, mainly based on blind faith as a fan but also on the extremely bullish initial response from the club and Soriano in particular. I do not pretend to be an expert on middle eastern culture but from what I know, to be proven a liar would be deeply damaging and it is this reason that leads me to think Soriano wouldnt have been so hugely indignant and combative in the aftermath of the ban. Quite simply I believe the club due to my own faith in them but also by following what I believe to be simple logic - to be SO combative and aggressive even in our immediate statement following the ban, tels me the club have proof of their innocence. Never discount the possibility that uefa and their string pullers may have thought "sod the aftermath, let's do them now. By the time the truth comes out (and they'll probably push for a NDA in the judgement) the world will have judged them and plenty of mud will stick regardless of the truth" Make no mistake, the stakes aren't simply can we play in europe for a year or two, the stakes are the very future of the club. I expect us to win and I await the victory with relish.
