It can't be a plan, otherwise the club wouldn't have used "regrettably" in their statement surely

 

They would want to make their comment seem (at least) a little bit real !!

 

They could hardly say "thankfully" could they . . .

Whenever there's talk of 'oh, this has been the plan all along', people tend to forget that we're not the only ones to have a bunch of lawyers with brains. The PL probably have the best they can find too to protect their image and secret deals. It's by no means that we have the best plans and all just because we feel we have the best legal team.

He can't have heard anything about yesterday's announcement beforehand because it's absolutely clear that no one did, it was an unexpected decision made by the arbitration panel on the first day of the hearing.

 

 

 

 

Correct, as evidenced by the most recent CAT ruling, in which the one-week extension was predicated on the PL simultaneously preparing for the arbitration.

Yeah, this is their barrister in our cases. He seems to have a pretty impressive CV:

Thought wraith got rinsed

 

Then again I hate the baldy cunt

 

 

 

 

I'm no Wraith fan, but he obviously was not 'rinsed', as you put it.

 

He more than held his own against that professional moron on TalkSport.

 

He won the battle quite easily really, could anyone else on here do as well?

I really want to believe that they chose that emoji because it looks like an angry Steve Wraith. 

 

Also, "Newcastle fans were abusing me and you were liking their tweets". That's a hell of a statement from a guy who claims to have broad shoulders.

The whole "they wanted the CAT first" thing doesn't hold water, either, given it's subject to a jurisdictional challenge, the hearing of which may not happen for months, and which might result in the CAT case being stayed (or dismissed). Even if the jurisdictional challenge is denied outright, there's still a good chance the arbitration goes forward before a substantive hearing on the CAT case.

I thought it was known the jurisdictional challenge had already failed and only challenge left was wether it was to be public or private? That’s how I’ve followed things. No expert obviously. Pretty much sure this was confirmed yesterday.

And Staveley’s husbands tweet? Honestly the desperation by some to see this as a positive is frightening. 
 

The PL have been stalling from day one and they’ve managed to get arbitration stalled for another 6 months. I’ll bet they are delighted

I'm pretty sure it is done too.  Maybe with all the calls for transparency the PL looked at Fat Mike and said, "if we're to be transparent so will you".  Everybody kind of forgets what a total dick that Mike Ashley is when the focus is on the PL.  Both the EPL AND Mike Ashley have treated the fans with disdain.  Stavely is coming across as incredibly naive and the media hacks and twitter kings are like a bunch of cats in heat.

 

f em all

There were rumors of it failing, which are unfounded. The current stance is that the PL filed its application on jurisdiction (i.e., the challenge to the CAT's jurisdiction), St James Holdings filed its response, and the PL got an extension of time to July 12th in which to file its reply to that response (which it has now presumably done). The next step is for it to be set in for a hearing. (See https://www.catribunal.org.uk/sites/default/files/2021-07/1402_StJames_Reasoned_Order_020721.pdf for all this.) In another case before the CAT, in which a jurisdictional challenge was apparently filed in May, the CAT scheduled a hearing on the challenge for November. That doesn't necessarily mean the timing would be the same in our case . . . but it could be.

I do wonder what documents might not have been filed on time.

 

If I'm on either side and was intent on kicking the can down the road, what I'd have done is dump loads of documents at the last minute and asked loads of extra questions for evidence from the other side, right at 1 minute before the extended deadline.

 

We so far only have a couple of journalists who have said it was failures on both sides, neither of which I much trust due to their behaviour, but hey it could well be the case that they're right, even for such a confidential process.

 

Not saying this was any part of a plan at all either, just thinking that to me that arbitration always seemed like it would likely only go one way, because of the way it was set up.

 

Oh well, it'll keep us all busy till our next pre season loss anyway.

Were effectively under a transfer embargo of at least 2years because of this faff on - our punishment for nearly getting rid of a club destroying owner who  unlike every other owner/club in football would welcome that punishment.

Sod this for a game of soliders like.

Made two of our most expensive ever signings last summer in Wilson and Lewis. Fraser, Hendrick and Gillespie all through the door as well, plus Willock of course. 

 

I'm sure we'll make signings eventually this summer, we always just move at a glacial pace. It'll be the bargain bin this time, mind; for the first time in Bruce's tenure, I hasten to add.
