    Long term, might be a good thing for us, it might lead to more clubs gambling and collapsing.

    Can anyone explain to me, in simple terms what city were actually accused of (I understood they were inflating sponsorship income by using subsidiary companies of the owners?) and what has changed in that discovery since the ban, as in are we saying that UEFA got it wrong or have they found a technicality to get off?

    Ridiculous. A fudging joke. I was stupidly hoping for this to be a turning point for football, but money wins of course.

    How are charges time-barred? I understand the process, but didn’t realise that this could be applicable here.

    I think PSG got off similar charges because of the time bar. City argued they should as well (albeit without hiring mini-Platinis).

    The report I heard said that CAS decided City didn't hide the dodgy payments, which given they were obvious for all to see might be technically correct.

    P.S. I'm glad our prospects of 5th are remote. If United or Chelsea get 5th I'll feel better about the decision.

    I don’t think I’ll feel better about the decision although, admittedly it would be funny if Chelsea finished 5th and missed out.
    City not being penalised sets a completely negative precedent, plus further strengthens City. I’m sure now they’ll spend big in the summer as a final big middle finger at all this. Whereas, had City been banned, it would have curtailed the spending of rival clubs, at a time when we ourselves are not spending, and would mean that we remained at a more competitive level to them.

    They’ve turned it into a tax, which some clubs will happily pay.

    Never for a moment expected a different outcome.

    I have a dream that this could be the time that allows Uncle Joe to slice off about 1.5 billion from his fortune, pay off the Stadium and give Jose what he needs to completely rebuild the squad.

    Then I'll wake up and have my cornflakes.

    I doubt “uncle Joe” has much of his rumoured $1.5b sitting around in liquidity. Most will be already committed, in the short term, in lone guarantees and other such financial agreements.

    Not sure why the court adjudged them to be innocent, the direct evidence was there, and the circumstantial evidence of financial 'doping' was there for all to see. The football authorities have made a mockery of themselves and financial fair play.

    According to 5Live’s analysis of it this evening it’s to do with UEFA not understanding its own rules.

    A date cut-off isn't too complicated to understand. They used that to let off PSG, who have gone on to spend ridiculous amounts on transfers. I think UEFA exposed the weakness of their case by picking City over PSG and not going for both.
