Define Moral grey area - it's quite simple not everyone's morals are the same


Exactly! That’s why it’s a grey area because it’s not black and white.

What I may see as moral you could see as immoral and vice versa so hardly a grey area

Don't know why EFL should listen to a club who's fans have got more fingers than the club has points.

Written a letter to the EFL saying they will not except relegation if the season doesn’t resume. :biggrin:

The ground is in Hillsborough a run down area of Sheffield not Dore or a more affluent area.

 

So say the land and buildings are worth £60m is a fetch, but the fact that was the price that was needed, to make sure the club just avoided breaking the FFP limits makes it look even fishier. 

 

Simple question if the valuation was done by a third party they have their own integrity to adhere to, if they have done anything wrong they should be brought against their governing body and I have not heard of anything in the press to this stance.

 

The problem for the EFL is the accounts were accepted by Co House, the tax computation were accepted by inland revenue, the correct documents were filed with the governing bodies and the valuation appears to have been sign off by the EFL prior to any of the documents being file. The issues seems to have been around the timing of the events.

 

The query I have is all teams in the division have to file accounts with the EFL by the end of March each season or breach the rules, so why did the club extend their filing date last year. This suggest they made changes to their figures and the EFL may not signed of the final figures. Or this could just be conjecture.

 

Either way I think for charges to be brought in November, to still be sat here nearly 6 months later and no nearer to a decision is not acceptable. This need finalising one way or the other before we kick another ball this season. If we get a points deduction we then have 9 games to avoid relegation if we can. It cannot be left until the end of the season if any punishment affects this season. 

Many ways of valuations in the corporate world.

One thing some people might be missing is that although the clubs might agree to resuming - the players haven't yet

 

Nor the Dr's

Let’s face it. Even if weds and derby got deductions, it is still a huge task for Barnsley to stay up.

Due to the apparent mess of our case I reckon the people dealing with it will be hoping the season starts again in mid June and we go on some decent run of form so that come the hearing in July they can deduct about 9-12 points that still keeps us up, and doesn’t effect the relegation situation. Otherwise it’s going to get very messy. More mess than the mess I mentioned at the beginning of this post. Proper messy and not the footballer

It sounds to me as though they are pushing for automatic relegation? That said we have to be found guilty first and we arguably won the first round when the individual charges were dropped? I know a few on here have scoffed at that but I fail to see how this development can't be seen as significant going forward and certainly in our favour?

Would that be the 'dodgy' sale that the individuals charged were found to have no case to answer?

That the one, the one that the EFL are keen to push through because they believe they have a case against us.

Ultimately time will tell, personally I can't see how anyone thinks we are getting away with this.

Corrected for you.

 

Imho, continuing with our case is nothing more than an arsecovering exercise.

I really wish I had your confidence fella, I can't see beyond us getting bent over and given the good news, I hope I'm wrong.

Sad thing is we shouldn't even be in this position, the club is a complete car crash.
