    So basically they used their old Man City login details to get into the system?

    Probably tried (illegally) to access data that they had a hand in compiling

    Sounds like it. There's a chance one of them could have done it to get their own scouting reports back, without considering the legal ramifications (his work product being legally theirs etc), that'd be my excuse in that situation anyway!

    A million quid would seem a lot if it was innocent. It clearly wasn't. But if they leave their windows open someone is going to have a look. I mean if I was City I'd be more fucked off with the lack of security than the fact someone took advantage of it

    Man City should pay us a million for saving them from buying that lot.

    I would imagine the million came with a confidentiality / no admission of wrong doing clause.

    So the story is untrue (well according to official sources anyway)

    Strange how the story has come out now, 6 years after the event.

    City fans are going to love this - just more fuel to add to the fire.

    Truthfully I'm happy to see us bending rules to get an edge. For far too long we've been naive as an organization and it's gotten us nowhere.

    History remembers the winners.

    Any other organisation on the planet revokes your passwords and locks you out of critical IT infrastructure. Poor old city

    Six years is the statutory limitation for suing someone under tort law, which is how I would go about it.

    So basically the club was pissed about the whole thing, compounded by the utter shit we signed, has held a grudge all these years, and couldn't resist the chance it now has to stick it's middle up at the cunts with impunity.

    We waited six years so that city can no longer issue fresh proceedings against us. Then we admitted everything to the press to embarrass them for being incompetent and petty.

    I suspect, as usual, that your initial logic is sound, but the theory you developed from it is completely wrong.

    It would make perfect sense that the contract signed would say both clubs couldn't make it public until after a period of time, that period of time coinciding with the tort law period would also make perfect sense.

    It wouldn't, however, make sense for us to go to the press with it, for so many reasons, not least of which is the clubs image & how it relates to sponsorship, which we want as spotless as possible.

    As such it suggests that City have waited until after the period is over & have leaked it the moment they could in order to sully the club's name.

    They won't issue proceedings because we paid them £1million not to. We also paid them to keep the matter confidential.

    This leak is damaging and embarrassing to us. Why on earth would we leak it.
