Arbitration can’t go on this long surely ?  

Depends on what biscuits they're serving. If Bourbons on offer could go on for months.

If the EFL can’t impose it this season ,but gave us a points deduction for next season that would have relegated us this season there’s gonna be absolute metdown from the 3 who do go down 

 

They have to deal with it this season surely

you’d think so ... but if DC is doing one good thing ... it’s running down the clock ... alas we know how we are in the dying embers

Assume the charges hearing assuming EFL win arbitration hearing. Otherwise no case to answer

 

Yes, but it ties into the process, which is important as I assume there's no chance of getting any charges hearing concluded within three weeks.

Personally, I think we will hear something this week. 


we may hear something on the arbitration over the lawfulness of the charges this season ... I cannot see how the conclusion of the charges can take place in the remaining time frame (similar also occurring re derby)

Fair point. Long way to go yet, arbitration first, then hearing, then appeals. 

 

I think the most likely chance of resolving this season is a compromised punishment which doesn't affect our league status. Similar to Birmingham, given a points deduction at a point in the season when safe and not likely to see them relegated. 

 

The longer arbitration goes on, the more confident I become (probably misplaced) that we will win, or evidence enough mitigation for a token punishment.

That is a good point. Whoever finishes third from bottom would be well aggrieved if it would have been us instead.

id snap there hands off at that 

 

You'd rather start next season in negative than take a points deduction that doesn't get us relegated this season?

I didn’t read your post like that (I mis-read the part where you said end up staying up by 1 point more than the deduction would have been) 

 

my bad 

 

yes, your post scenario would be typical

Having a team start a season on -21 is making an absolute mockery of the competition , not saying it’s ok to break rules but there has to be a better way of dealing with it than that

You’d expect to hear something soonish with Birmingham having their charges overturned on Friday. 
 

I don’t think the EFL will hesitate once the appeals done and dusted.

Why?  It's happened loads of times with clubs going in to admin.

I presume the argument about whether there is a legal case against the EFL for our "legitimate expectation" has to be completed first. I suspect there is no set time frame for this as its effectively a civil case.

And ?  How’s that worked out for the integrity of the competition?? Having a team in the competition just to make up the numbers essentially innit

For the good of both us and football in general it must happen this season. I don’t know if that’s realistic though to be honest.

 

All the talk about starting afresh next year would be undermined if we go into the season with a points penalty. 
 

And agree with those who think the team who finished third from bottom this year will kick off massively if we’re seen as somehow getting away with it.

 

If Chansiri was, as some believe, just using stalling tactics in the hope we’d get promotion first and escape jurisdiction then now promotion is off the table we desperately need to learn our fate and get on with life.
