    I get optimistic reading the various links that actually consider the evidence available.
    It makes sense that the AC ruling should be overturned.
    But....
    I’m watching the Chelsea United game and with what is going on in that I lose heart again. The game is bent.
    United will be got into 5th place by hook or by crook.
    We’ll get a compromise decision in CAS of a one year ban, because of a strategically excessive punishment.
    PL will then have the excuse they want to retrospectively give Slippy a winner’s medal as the media are beginning to lobby for.

    It’s depressing. Football is bent. I’m not convinced we’ll beat it.


    Someone post an update that gets me up again.

    I would love it for the 1894 group to get Nevilles face with that song on a banner for the Madrid game :)

    I feel embarrassed for him. What is it with City fans hammering clueless fuckwits on Twitter?

    Even if the ruling family did put their own money into Etihad why should it be a problem?
    How many small business owners pour their own money into a venture? - every single one of them is the answer.

    If the owners of Etihad decided to put more money into their business in order to sponsor City then what business is it of anyone else. They did so in return for the advertising and global exposure that it gave to their airline - their business, and although the airline might still be making a loss it certainly has more of a global presence and awareness that it had previously, and in that respect the sponsorship has worked for them surely.

    Probably has more to do with him being part owner of Salford and having the deepest pockets in that league.

    But wouldn't there have to be a separate FA/ Premier league hearing, again with the so called Khaldoon body of evidence submitted which UEFA allegedly have ignored?
    And might the FA/Prem take a different view than UEFA based on the evidence?
    Lots of questions.
    As regards stripping titles usually that is done when there has been match fixing or bribery. Doing it for example over a debate as to whether a payment is from a related party or not seems excessive AND it's worth remembering that the period to which the alleged breach took place is unclear. UEFA put it at 2012 -2016 but lawyers have said this cannot be correct and it's May 2014 _2016 at most which could actually avoid any titles?
    Points deduction seems the most likely route if it ever gets to it

    If the Rags get 5th, our chances of getting the ban overturned are diminished

    Those money grabbing ****s at UEFA will do anything to get their cash cow back into their bent competition
