The British legal system is probably less corrupt than most around the world, but human nature being what it is, there is always going to be some bias, even if only unconscious bias. My view is that the ruling will generally favour the national body over local or foreign unless there really is a compelling case that proper procedure wasn't followed. 

 

So I'm hoping that there's compelling evidence that the PL colluded with the big six to scupper the bid, otherwise I would always think the PL would be favourites. 

 

I don't think there even needs to be that, I think the O&D test is fundamentally anti-competitive in itself. The PL is imposing controls of entry to a closed market of competing business without, as far as I'm aware, a legislative basis to give them the exemption from competition law to do that.

NUFC fans are very gullible. Once again you fall into Ashley's trap. There is no takeover, PIF walked out long ago. This is an elaborate scheme from Ashley so he won't have to spend money on transfers. The arbitration, CAT case, Amanda Stanley etc all are distraction so NUFC fans forget about how little (nothing) Ashley has invested his money to NUFC.

Wake up! Stop dreaming! Ashley is here forever so do Steve Bruce...

100%, Ashley is paying millions in legal fees as an elaborate hoax to detract from something he's already been doing for about a decade.

 

He's got everyone in on it to: NDM, Stavkey, Masters. He must have paid them a packet too, it probably cost him more than a few transfers...

Another who thinks Ashley is immortal, not to mention Bruce, the grossly overweight 60 year old who has about 15 years left to live.

 

Bloke's got another 5 years in management, tops.

"I am satisfied that the requested short extension of seven days will not prejudice the listing of the hearing of the Jurisdiction Application"

 

There will be a hearing before any decision on the jurisdiction challenge, that is likely to be months away, might not even be this year.

Good to be able to nail the submission of documents down first and not have constant moving targets.

If Ashley hasnt spent at least a million quid on his legal team hes got to be VERY close to it.

 

Unless hes got De Marco on some sort of performance based retainer.....[emoji38]

Total common sense when you hire the top QCs in their field and all their legal team. And that’s just the legal team costs. There will be a multitude of other costs involved also.

Two cases running concurrently, absolutely. The sun is hot as well.

Someone give us something positive ffs.

If it was going to collapse into an unsalvageable situation it would have done so by now. 

 

I mean if that gets used for "if [POSITIVE THING] was going to happen it would have happened by now" so turnabout is fair play.

mike ashley is made up of a new pair of elementary particles called the "fat" and "denim" quarks. As such he is in perpetual superposition of being a machiavellian, lex luthor level evil genius and a complete and utter buffoon who chunders in firepits.

What has to happen on todays 5pm deadline ? 

The Premier League have to submit their evidence fo why the CAT case shouldn’t go ahead and/or why it should be held in private.

If they fail to do so then the case will go ahead as planned and be held in public. If they do submit the evidence, then the judge will look at it to see if the case should go ahead and if it should, then if it should be held in public or private.
