It's the default accusation to make mate. 

 

Apparently anyone who could see this coming (and said so) is now currently sat in a bubble bath with a glass of champagne in their hands getting off on how right they were all along.  

 

Total nonsense. I (like you) get absolutely no joy whatsoever with this state of affairs. 

 

Similar to when you make a prediction that the manager has lost the plot. By default you are accused of enjoying seeing the team lose just so you can prove your point. It's ridiculous

i haven't read the whole thread  just looked at the first last page, if anyone thinks any owl is celebrating over this is frankly stupid 

highlighting the shortcomings and possible punishments of a situation is a million miles away from enjoying it happening 

 tbh I'm surprised it's taken so long I really hoped we'd escaped

66/1 Wednesday and Barnsley both to go down on Skybet. Worth a quid I suppose dependant on how hard the EFL hit us.

What rules ?? Point me in direction of some clear legislation without loop holes that the EFL have backed up and not just said ‘no comment’ about ?

A what point do we bring somebody in to run the clubs finances effectively ?

 

This question has been asked repeatedly since DC came into the club.

 

It started with spunking money up the wall on players who never played, were past it, or we didn't even need.

 

It's continued with not understanding and frequently falling foul of league rules.

 

We need a qualified CEO not afraid to tell DC how it is. Quick.

Well this just made my evening after only just reading about it.

 

To my mind this is not on a par with Birmingham so I fully expect a more severe punishment.

 

I won't lie, I think rather than implode we need to galvanise as fans and a club.   This is going to happen so we need to come together, no one else will help us so let's get on with it and forge ahead no matter what they throw at us.

 

I don't know if we have it in us as a fanbase or a club to do this though.   I hope I am wrong.   We need a leader and fast on the fans side of things.   A well organised massive body of fans could achieve almost anything.   We absolutely need unity right now.

If he’d sold some players after the Huddersfield game then things wouldn’t be too bad. His stubbornness over transfers has been our downfall. The squad was absolutely huge and continued to be for the next two seasons.

Haven’t read the whole thread so don’t know if I’m repeating what has been said. We must remember that a form of auditors signed off these accounts so it is not just Wednesday in the dock here but our auditors too. They will have had to satisfy themselves that there was enough evidence to allow us to book the sale in an earlier period.

 

All of that being said, there is an old accounting concept of “substance over form” and whatever DC might argue and has convinced the auditors of it is clear to most observers that the substance of this transaction is that it should have been booked a year later.

 

In his heart DC must have known this was wrong and I’m afraid we will deserve all that is coming to us.

This isn’t going to be resolved for some time. The fact it was approved originally must be a positive. However, now EFL have flagged this, can’t see it ending well. Maybe need to take the hit and start again.

 

There is always something!

Everything I’ve learnt about DC in the last few years suggests he won’t bring someone in to tell him what to do. He controls everything.
