    CAS have only ruled that City can't appeal a decision because all legal avenues haven't been exhausted and UEFA's court is not incompetent.

    It might very well be that UEFA & City have gotten a nod from CAS about which way a legitimate, post-verdict appeal would go and that's resulted in the lack of penalty from UEFA.

    It's still bad news. It was possible, but unlikely that they could have ruled in our favour in which case the UEFA case would be dead now.

    It will not matter in the long run if Atheltic are right. It was only a few days ago that another journalist said that his information was that City would face a 1-3 year ban. That news was largely ignored. DO we just ignore the news we don't like, and be reassured by the news we like?

    .....and maybe David Gill is an innocent bystander - come on Marvin we can all see what's going on here, a ladder is being constructed for UEFA to climb down.

    First paragraph: that's my take too. They are only referring to institution not issues like fairness and reasonableness.

    Second paragraph: not sure but it makes sense from the perspective of not wanting to waste resources and reputation management.

    Maybe the whole point of the CAS appeal was to prevent us being kicked out this season, as we knew it would take a while to be looked at, had we not, UEFA could have kicked us out before it started this season, they could also have told us that even if we appealed, we'd still not be allowed pending the appeal outcome.

    As a result we simply bought time, time so we could still play this season, and time to get our evidence together to fight an appeal, maybe there have been further discussions with UEFA, and that they now know that our appeal would succeed and leave them looking stupid.

    Not sure you are right that nothing has changed? We are now, seemingly, less likely to be found guilty/punished/banned than we were a few months ago? And IF we were THEN we may have a valid case with the CAS? My concern is the accuracy of Sam lee
