Not certain of the answer to this, although I thought it was this season.
Would be ironic if we got charged this Season but the EFL docked us points and/or fined next Season, wouldn't that then make them guilty of the very same thing we are being charged with?
I'm pretty certain it will be points, Not sure how they could work out a fine for something which is monetary.
Difficult to explain why but I'll have a go
Anything less than the amount we (allegedly illegally) sold the ground for, and the fine becomes pointless, ie we still made a profit on something we've been charged with gross misconduct for.
Anything Close to or above what we sold the Ground for (Definetly wont happen) and The EFL would be seen to attempting to kill off one of their member Clubs. (It would be different if it we're a Club with Millions ie Man City but these Clubs don't have the need to sell their ground to make money)
That's why I think it will be a points deduction and SHOULD be this season.
Hopefully we will somehow fight their decision and win, but I can't see this happening, I'm expecting min 12 pts (most likely imo) maybe 15 pts and very worst scenario (Please No but they don't seem to like Wednesday) 25 points.
