    Regardless of what anyone thinks of the 2014 judgement, the fact that the 5 year timeline was pretty much up, and that the case was reopened at the very last minute is alone shady enough. Let alone having the case reopened due to an international hacking scandal.

    Regardless of who you think is behind this: G14, UEFA, teams in red, the PL, geopolitical warfare, or maybe even a disgruntled former employee. It smacks to me of someone behind the scenes pulling the strings of the UEFA muppets for their own purposes. There are way too many coincidents at play here. Someone with complete knowledge of our operations, with a vested interest, and an axe to grind has probably shaped the process thus far.

    I could also be wrong and it could just be all of the above individuals.

    Exactly, and as I linked right at the start , the words of a legal expert, that UEFA cannot purport to be running a fair and unbiased process if it is going to act as judge jury and executioner !
    They are arrogant and deluded beyond belief.

    Difficult decision for CAS, lots of people taking up positions on either side of the fence.

    I dont think anyone can be truly confident of their outcome being announced in July.....

    My preferred outcome would be

    CAS to exonerate City on all major charges and x2 year CL ban and associated fines to

    be overturned. However, City to be found guilty on some minor technicality resulting in

    City being banned from wearing new third kit in any round of next years CL campaign

    Playing devils advocate given we will all be over the moon if it is quashed by cas. And if we’re honest we have nothing more than hope and interpretation of the words of our directors on this.
    Unless anyone wants to own up now?

    If it isn’t overturned and is infact validated by cas, will anyone accept that decision? In the same way we would demand rival fans accept the decision if it was overturned.

    No because the club won’t accept it they will take it further.

    Presuming this is correct, someone is going to be in a lot of trouble for not taking them up on their offer if we end up getting the 2 year ban
