    Is it just me? or does anyone else think Nick De Marco QC sounds like someone The Sopranos would bring in?

    Court of Appeal judgment applying the one voice doctrine to facts involving the Libyan Investment Authority and the UK Government’s recognition of the PC/GNA as the Government of Libya. Shaheed Fatima QC appeared for Mr Breish.

    Nick De Marco may be a sports lawyer, but Shaheed Fatima is a human rights lawyer.

    Interesting that she’s been retained – I think that’s the consortium / Ashley anticipating potential arguments to come.

    Probably very wise.

    She also seems to have distinct skills in International Law and Commercial Law. Very handy indeed.

    Rolling out the big guns.

    Bet Richard Masters is crying into his cornflakes.

    Err, might not be a popular question but why does the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia not want to be the named owner of NUFC?

    Seems like to me that if NUFC is going to sign someone they are going to be under the age of 21, so they don’t count to the 25 players needed for a squad.

    make no mistake guys this is a very aggressive move from Ashley ,
    if this does go to court these QC will take no prisoners, they will have also reviewed the case before accepting it and given their opinion on the likely verdict ,
    personal i still think the more likely outcome will be a facesaving settlement, PL wont want to go to court

    The PL will not want to go to court, this decision by Ash has been made quite quickly and he won’t waste a penny so must have a very good vibe re outcome.

    PL will meet costs !!!!

    Blackstones being close to EPL HQ will have been why Ashley’s hired them – he’ll save on their expenses- bus fares!

    This feels like a huge precedent, also. When did any member club ever challenge the Premier League through the Courts? Where one leads, others will follow.

    Imagine what kinds of skeletons in how many closets could be revealed by this case – collusion of the PL with the top clubs, restrictions of competition by favouring the top 6 clubs, the influence on PL decisions by third parties including BEiN Sports and other foreign commercial rights holders, the process for the appointment of Directors, oversight and accountability of the Premier League and its workings, the input of the desires / wishes of the fans of individual clubs.

    This could essentially become a root and branch analysis of the whole decision making process and governance of the Premier League. Would they really want to lay themselves open to that? Surely better to just climb down and pass the O&D test, which they’ll be forced to do anyway.

    Imagine the class-action lawsuit from ‘the other 14’ if it’s found that the Premier League and the top 6 have been colluding to restrict the chances of the other clubs to compete with them. It would be worth billions!

    Well well well…

    As far as the #NUFC fans are concerned, it’s the most hated man vs the second most hated man facing off against each other!

    To be honest, the Newcastle fans played a part. I wonder if the fans didn’t cause a stir and just accept the EPL decision, these things might not happen. I think the EPL didn’t expect the fans would react back either.
