1. Court rejects the SPFL's suggested arbitration panel members
2. Court demands independent legally experienced members and chair, although BOTH parties can nominate or suggest one of their own, if they are credible recommendations to be on the panel, not about football, but legal experience
3. Court demands that all relevant communications, minutes, emails and papers are made available
4. Court demands that any and all individuals can be called to give evidence or be questioned
5. Arbitration proceedings follow strict FIFA processes, which have seen two such challenges upheld in Europe
6. Court dismisses any suggestion or blame of delay by Hearts' actions on the league
7. Even after arbitration process if Hearts are still not satisfied, we can again take this back to court, arbitration process is not final
8. Court upheld two of the three challenges made by Hearts, but ultimately pointed at the member rules to seek arbitration through SFA first but, before sending us there, the above has been done to ensure our best chances of a fair hearing and avoiding a kangaroo court
So. I'm still not complacent about this. But the hysterics from Hibs, Dundee, etc as if we failed today, is premature. This isn't done yet. But again, I'm not being cocky here, but still think the most awkward and embarressing for the authorities lies ahead. It's a weekend with little sleep for Doncaster still. This remains open and still being fought, but now potentially more details in the public eye.
Glad you're not being cocky.
You never could or should be.
You are a hun and you missus smells of rotting fish and unwashed, crusting period blood.
