We will get treated very harshly. They will want to send a message to Newcastle to say you might have backing but you're not in our gang, you can't do what you want
Barest minimum is a big fine. Probably also includes a transfer embargo. Can't see relegation but I wouldn't rule out a points deduction, especially if it benefits 2 red shite clubs. Arsenal winning it and rags securing top 4. Might even open the door for a triumphant dipper rally.
Is it true we cant appeal? Surely not. Any basis of trial has that caveat in place. But I suspect we would take any perceived unfair judgment on our part to the highest courts available. Either way this will get messy and could escalate into a very different beast entirely as the Corruption of the PL could be outlined and put out there for the football World to see
We can appeal. It would go to the High Court and not CAS. They’re just pushing the, “this time CAS can’t save them narrative” but saying we can’t appeal to CAS
Cheers for that, mate.
Exactly that is the narrative, I've never read anything about the High Court.
There are appeal and arbitration options open if needed, but apparently the PL rule book explicitly states appeals can't go to CAS. Think that's the PL covering their own arses as they would have no control over CAS, but may be able to inflence stuff in the UK (like appointing an Arse member to head the "independent" panel).
