    The company I work for has lots of very intelligent people who are experts in their fields yet total technophobes and wouldn't think twice about cyber security, in fact they complain when they cant plug in a flash device that hasn't been encrypted

    I repeat how can you be sure we were offered a viable way out? The people who may be wrongly accused probably consider it a lot more important than been guilty of a technical breach.Also we can't easily quantify the damage in the medium to long term. If we get back into Europe I would suggest it would be limited. Most of those sneering bastards in the press running us down at present hate us anyway as do a lot of others in football nationally and internationally our brand has and will always suffer as a result.

    They won't be revealing their reasons to the press but of course they will have to in submissions to CAS both before and during any hearings. These will not be in the public domain before CAS's decision is reached.

    I've been searching for that interview with Platini, when he stated at the outset that FFP would not only look at clubs simply spending what they earn, but at debts accrued.

    I've read the full Samuels interview and I don't think it's in there (unless I missed it).

    Can others remember this?

    Thought it was quite a compelling statement.

    Then it suddenly changed, at a time when City were suddenly viewed as a threat.

    That's true but this is really basic stuff even for very small firms. Confidential financial discussions can't happen on email because emails are not and have never been secure. That's also why your local GP is not allowed to discuss sensitive medical information on email. Its a disciplinary offence and can even lead to criminal prosecution in certain cases.
    You don't have to be an IT genius. I am still amazed that no one at CFG has yet been held accountable (to our knowledge) for this fiasco which has already costs us millions in legal fees and reputational damage. Our brand has been trashed because of the stupidity of a small group of senior managers behaving unprofessionally.
    I wonder what City's auditors (is it Price Waterhouse?) think about this. Their reputation has been damaged as well.
