    Wasn’t over market value.

    Why are you stating that?

    I suspect we aren’t lily-white in terms of compliance but what the fcuk? FFP is a protection racket, so ...
    • We hit UEFA each and every way we can. If the CAS appeal is won solely on procedural niceties, that will do fine. They’ll hurt while we laugh.
    • Regardless of CAS outcome, we pursue them on FFP legality and rinse the conniving cnuts if we win. They had the opportunity to back off but provoked a fight.
    • Football is totally tribal. We haven’t killed Italians, evicted Munich families or been subsidised by the Spanish government but we’ll still be oil-fuelled cheats whichever way it goes. Well, when you challenge the darling elite, you become hard-nosed bastards and no longer “ickle ole Citeh”.
    • Pep is already at a crossroad and quite possibly on the brink of leaving without having made waves in the CL. He’s neither a son of Stockport nor a god. A top manager and great if he stays to rebuild. If he moves on, though, so do we.
    • Let’s have this in context. We’ve been in the third division, ridiculed and almost broken. We’ve survived Bovril, York away, Wilfred Bony, the GPC and the Kippax urinals. We kept our core support and bounced back big time. The current episode is nit-shit against the backdrop of our history.

    We probably were expecting it once we refused the supposed deal if that ever happened. The club might be relaxed as they were told, "Look we know we haven't got enough to stick but the cartel are baying for blood. If you refuse the deal we'll ban you but you will win the appeal." Hopefully something like this is the case.

    As Mark Stephens, a top UK lawyer, has said today: "Interestingly there is no precedent for UEFA second guessing what is the correct amount for commercial sponsorship deals."

    Can anyone enlighten me on the mechanism that UEFA uses to assess "market value"? Is it a scientific formula? Equally, isn't the value of a sponsorship what it's worth to the sponsor rather than the sponsored?

    While it obviously isn't that simple for a bunch of reasons, the fact is that litigation is messy and the inherent uncertainly of a trial, even when you mostly have the facts on your side, makes the whole thing an extremely risky proposition. I'm sure we will have the best counsel that money can buy, but there is a very good reason that some 90% of lawsuits end up in a pre-trial settlement, when you go before a judge you just never fucking know. In my opinion we've fucked up royally by allowing it to get anywhere close to this far.

    No offence mate, but it seems like you don’t really know what you’re talking about.

    Concerning if true but how would Conn know this? He seems to be the only one running with it. Also, if they do have invoices that put us bang to rights, then surely they would’ve issued their punishment way sooner than they did.
