    If he was doing this from outside the stadium on the public pavement as I believe then surely he's still banned?

    Many of us have been saying to take this approach for years. I have no idea why we have been so feeble in dealing with these rats, maybe it's a different cultural approach from our owners?

    Surely they must have realised by now unless we start to fight back and hurt them they will never let up??

    This is a very significant occurrence in the whole matter.

    The NYT are standing by their journalist and the claim that he has a source close to the investigation. There has been no denial from UEFA that information may have been leaked. The cornerstone of any disciplinary investigation is the absolute mutually-held promise of confidentiality between parties. What has happened, and what City have seized upon with noticeable emphasis, is that there has been a breakdown in trust over UEFA's complete inability to maintain their promise of non-disclosure during investigative proceedings. I believe that the NYT is telling the truth. I believe that someone from within the CFCB IC has leaked information to the press. The reasons for this are unknown but given the timing, I think we all have our suspicions. By failing to uphold the ethical tenet of confidentiality, the whole UEFA investigation has been prejudiced. The likelihood is that any subsequent action would be successfully challenged in court, because UEFA cannot demonstrate that they have been able to satisfy the fundamental premise of impartiality. Make no mistake, City's statement was very carefully worded and allows the club to steal the initiative. Instead of questions being asked about us, the club can rightfully be asking very pointed questions of UEFA and the legitimacy of the CFCB IC.

    None of the reports give any idea as to where their "beliefs" (it is believed that ...) or "understandings" (it is understood that ...) come from. Are they making it all up, repeating a story spread by NYT or is someone from UEFA shooting their mouth off. If it's the latter then due process has gone out of the window and someone at CFCBIC is clearly, as the club statement says, trying to damage the reputation of the club. The BBC report goes further and suggests that CFCBIC first decide on a punishment then carry out an investigation and reach a verdict!

    After the reading the statement I came to the same conclusion. Feels like the club are ready to explore counter legal methods to put a lid on the slur campaign against us.

    Liverpool would demand a playoff for finishing champions elect again in second place and we draw but win the extra game on pens.

    It seems to me that the club’s suspicion about this being all about targeted attempts to damage our reputation is true.

    The more difficult issue for us as fans might be though “what if we go to court and lose”.

    What is your view as a fan? I think mine is that if we bent the rules then we did so because we fought fire with fire. Feel a bit blinkered admitting that tho
