UEFA can have their own rulings sure. But do the rulings stack up in a court of law? If UEFA felt that they would they'd get an independent body involved to eliminate any chance city have of an appeal
Be surprising if they didn't. A monolith like UEFA would make a point of following law.

Manchester City might do the stupid Essendon thing of throwing 'we don't trust them/conspiracy!' bait to the fans but CAS will not give a shit.

CAS have already expressed concerns about UEFA leaks and their refusal to investigate them.

They may not give a shit about imaginary bait, but they give a shit about due process being followed.

CAS can dismiss the case if they see fit.
They can, has it ever happened? I would be surprised, there obviously was a very thorough investigation over 12 months. Has CAS ever overturned a UEFA judgement?

No idea.

One of our arguments will be that there wasn't a thorough investigation, and that the chief investigator was talking about our punishment before the investigation commenced.

As revealed by CAS a day or so ago, UEFA didn't disclose (write) the scope of the investigation until after our appeal was lodged.

You would think that's the first step of any investigation.

Where was the chief investigator talking about the punishment? And wasnt it referred from the lower chamber?

It was ruled inadmissable as we still had the avenue of the adjudicatory chamber to go through.

CAS said that we could subsequently appeal on those grounds if the decision by the AC wasn't in our favour.

Good luck with that. I can only find a statement from the investigator that City could face a ban if the allegations were proven. An entirely reasonable statement to be made.

This is a massive story though, cant wait to see how it all plays out.

I almost want it overturned. City without European football makes them hard to beat in the in league over the next two seasons.

We're just one away from getting back level with United now and then one more to knock them off their ******* perch. Cant wait.

So over turn it for me. :)
