I disagree. This is the worst possible time for this to break from the POV of city. Also McElroy quitting over Saudi influence, it all creates a bad vibe politically at a time when maybe people were hoping sportswashing concerns might fade from the front pages.Cynic is me says this is basically a message to other clubs to not mention a certain club's 115 charges, which have conveniently been swept under the carpet it seems after no news for a while. Else, face articles like these where their own club is brought into question.
Conspiracy maybe, I donno. Gut feeling says it just seems off.
