    I would love to see the club play the home leg against Madrid and take the opportunity to show our contempt of Uefa, I would refuse to play their shitty little jingle, offer the Uefa delegates the absolute bare minimum of hospitality and refuse to undertake any post match press conferences.

    No doubt we would be fined for these actions but it would be great to see.

    Conn isn’t a blue and obviously never truly was one.

    He’s a spineless cretin and just looking at his face inspires violence.

    Hope you are right but let’s not be under any illusions, we’ve been dancing to UEFA’s tune for 10 years. I’m not as convinced as you are that we will suddenly be in the better position.

    Shouldn't need ten minutes to lodge an appeal. I hope we take a load of these vermin scum down.

    True friends stab you in the front.
    If City get the appeal right then it could take as long as it's taken Hillsborough to sort out, and that's still not finished yet.

    I can confirm that they are a band of wankers though:)

    I doubt if that could be done. The European Supreme Court has considered the case against FFP brought by Dupont (the Bosman guy) and thrown it out. Doesn't mean to say City can't start another case of course if they can find a different angle I suppose.

    It looks to me that City are going to have to persuade the CAS that the UEFA procedure was so fundamentally flawed that it needs to be overturned. That's the line of City's statement. If they can add to that persuasive arguments to refute the allegations themselves, then all the better but so far City have confined themselves to the unfair procedure argumant, not the actual allegations.

    The one glimmer of light I see in this is that neither side can afford to lose 100% on this and any arbitration process is a risk for both parties. Which suggest some sort of middle way, maybe even "out of court".
