    Doesn’t he work for New York Cosmos - amongst his many “pies” ?

    You'd think that somebody who styles himself as an expert on these matters would be apologetic to have gone public with a statement so demonstrably untrue, but instead he turns it into a sly dig about the person calling him out not using a pseudonym. It's like a court reporter confusing the judge with the prosecuting counsel, in which case the person concerned would never be taken seriously again.

    Something like that, yes.
    It might just be a staffmember rather than a committee member too.

    LeTerme's comments are a bit odd. By saying "it definitely wasn't the IC", either:

    - he's wrong and deliberately lying
    - he doesn't know one way or another where they came from, and has gone for bluster
    - he's right, and knows where they did come from.

    I think he was linked to Cosmos at some stage of his career. He was also a paid adviser for the Qatari World Cup bid and an adviser to the Commons Select Committee investigation into the Governance of Football in 2011 (another report which co-incidentally leaked to the press in advance sparking a Governnment leak inquiry which achieved nothing) He gets around a bit.

    Ive been over this a few times. Tariq Panja is the NYTT journalist breaking these "stories". Panja started his journalist career at the Manchester Evening News, where he developed David Gill as a source I believe. Leaks are coming from a senior figure at UEFA and Leterme is quite insistent that they aren't coming from him or any other member of the CFCB. David Gill is not part of the CFCB so Leterme is technically correct that, if Gill is the one providing Panjs with information, the leaks aren't coming from that source.

    Inadvertently therefore, by telling the truth, Leterme has made it quite clear who the potential source is.

    Just checked Parry certainly was on the Board of the Cosmos - not sure if he still is.
