The silver lining in all this is that the gloves are now off from ALL parties; City, uefa, ECA, media and fans. Time to start the battle for real now. I am actually relieved that this has come about. If we had got off with a "technical violation" our detractors would be sniping for ever. Now we get the chance to exonerate ourselves. The choice is simple now, we are either innocent or guilty. I, for one, like that option!!!
