    It looks like there will be a disciplinary ruling from UEFA before these fixtures can take place. I'm not sure it will make a huge difference.

    Theoretically, the slot would go to Huub Stevens' PAOK instead of Metalist in case of disciplinary action. This would improve our chances GREATLY in my book.
     
    LongDuckDong repped this.

    Now being reported that Heldt believes that a suspension would result in our immediate passage to the group stage, but he thinks that it is very unlikely to go that way.

    Why should they be suspended? ​

    I believe the allegations are from 2007. A new FIFA rule allowed UEFA to go back and review old cases. I'm also pretty sure that I read that one court already found them guilty. The court reviewing the case is already the UEFA appeals court, so the decision cant be appealed within UEFA. I really dont know what to expect.

    Charkiw is the German transliteration.

    I hope we win. There are quite a few unwelcome memories for this kind of opponent. Sparta Prag. Nancy. Donetsk...

    Not sure how this^ would happen. CAS has already ruled against them.

    I think they would be replaced by PAOK.

    The first leg is in a week time and needs to be resolved ASAP

    The CAS has announced that some information will be forthcoming today. They requested statements from UEFA and PAOK (no idea why they are asked).

    Apparently the Supreme Court of Switzerland has ordered the CAS to review the Metalist request once more.

    One question, how come Fenerbahce are still playing despite having MULTIPLE game fix and bribery accusations and Metalist are being railroaded for one, that occured in 2007/2008?

    From what I've heard, Fenerbache is likely to loose their appeal on the 28th, in which case Arsenal would advance to the group stage.

    This would be a great time to break out my Goretzka-Jones-Neustadter/Kolasinac midfield trio idea and just totally blow Stevens's mind.

    Possible line-ups:

    PAOK: Jacobo - Kitsiou, Katsouranis, Miguel Vitor, Lino - Lazar, Tziolis - Oliseh, Lucas, Stoch - Salpingidis

    I hope we don't see that lineup again after the mugging they took from Wolfsburg. People may think that Neustadter+Jones is bad but Jones+Hoger seems much worse.
