    Whichever way we look at it for or against, Man City have gotten the chap they want and it’s now being backed by Law. Thus, making the deal lawful. So, the deal to sign the underage by MC when he was signed is no longer an illegal deal. But could CAS had delibrately delayed judgement in this case to buy time for the Etihad club outfit so to perverse judgement in the case using lack of tenable fact and evidence to not uphold Man City appeal?

    As regards to the decision to introduce winter break across the board of the English Leagues, if it is approved and implemented next winter, I think the implementation will help some players in the Premier League who are allergic to the severe cold that the winter brings along. The player like Oezil at Arsenal who often falls sick during the winter period and missing in games for Arsenal could benefit immersely from this winter break when ir is introduced in the PL next January.

    Hmmmm,a few days ago CAS was alive, today because the verdict has gone in city’s favour, its become a kangaroo court.Is the rest of the world allowed to have an opinion different from yours,Tony?

    king,
    I read it that a Citeh fan had referred to the CAS as a kangaroo court, presumably because they had the temerity to investigate Citeh in the first place.

    Why don’t you exercise some patience and read this again?

    … Benjamin Garre can now sign for Man City after what one Man City fan described on Untold as the kangaroo court (actually the Court of Arbitration for Sport) reached a decision after nine months.

    How about canceling all those pointless and silly ‘friendly internationals ‘ ? That ought to please a lot of people .
    International break is an oxymoron , if ever there was one !

    There was no appeal by City in this hearing. The appeal was by Velez against Fife clearing City to sign Garre. THEIR original appeal to Fife also failed.

    Perhaps you could you reword your ever so slanted headline, which is so untypical of you.

      OK if you want to be pedantic. “Man City won appeal”
