    I think UEFA should be hoping the CAS throw the whole case out. I'm curious as to what the CAS will do. If City can prove they are innocent, then even accepting a fine at this point would be counter-intuitive. If they do manage to get even a 1 year ban through, then it will really get messy and costly too but if City win then they'll be well in profit at the end of it.

    I expect it could come to that and the first course of action should be to immediately go after FFP itself. Getting that deemed as illegal business practice asap, would be the quickest route to a resolution. It would probably mean a season without CL football but one season out of the CL wouldn't be that bad, especially if it's an all expenses paid vacation from UEFA. After the second court case aimed directly at UEFA themselves, for loss of earning, damage to the club image etc. Then there should be several court cases alongside that aimed at the press who have been used as instruments of evil in this operation from day one.

    The winner when it goes to court is the lawyers. The club's reputation and standing will be badly damaged regardless. Legal proceedings could last years. I can't see any allies we have in football wanting us to succeed?

    Thats the whole point isn't it. A corrupt rule hiding under the name 'fair play' ran by a corrupt organisation that is only there to protect the elite mafia

    And then you have that idiot from spain Tebas gloating about financial doping when he has the interests of real madrid at heart - a club doped by the state in its past. It is totally laughable

    We will go to cas but we musnt accept a lower charge

    Consider this scenario. You're accused of a crime you didn't commit but you're confident you'll be exonerated because you have a dossier full of evidence that proves you're innocent while all the prosecution have is third hand hearsay sourced from a person currently in custody awaiting trial for a number of very serious charges. At your trial you notice a business rival, whose company stands to benefit if you're found guilty, sitting on the jury. Then the judge refuses your lawyer permission to present the "irrefutable" evidence that would clear you. On top of that, while your trial is still ongoing, the judge is leaking to the press that you'll be found guilty and even the sentence you'll get. Then you get found guilty. However, there is public and media outrage at the unfair trial and lack of due process.

    That in a nutshell is the situation City found themselves in. Apart from the public and media outrage.

    What’s with all this bow down to the establishment bollocks.
    We literally have nothing left to lose,nothing.

    Let’s stick together, move forward and expose this fucking farce for what it is.

    What a journey we are on.
    Let’s not give up now.

    CAS will approve a lesser ban of 1 year and reduced fine. The question is our owner says we have provided evidence of no wrongdoing - that means we must not accept a lower charge.

    This will go to court unless our owners go against their own words and back down

    Remember CAS panel is chosen. One by us, one by uefa and the last panel member is random
