Barnsley amongst clubs threatening to sue EFL if we arent relegated

Recommended Posts

What if we get a 12 point deduction this season, still stay up and the dingles go down!

 

They wont have a case! 

 

Plus Chansiri and the two executives have had all changes dropped against them personally!

Seriously if I were the EFL I'd do exactly that to avoid any/all legal challenges as a result of the decision

The EFL won't charge us with anything, Chansiri was at Pizza Express on the day of the alleged misdemeanour.

Yeah I can fully imagine Nancy Frostrick making up that statement for her article and not retaining any proof that a club owner had said it.

I don't think he'd raise his head above the parapet for something so trivial

 

It's pretty much a compliment compared to a lot of what he is openly being accused of currently

I don't think the quote implies he's a paedo so I don't think it's actionable - the Athletic could be sued for repeating it if it is. It's more a case of a private opinion on a bloke who the individual being quoted still has to work with to some extent on EFL issues.

A quote as hard, tough and serious as that one would no WAY be 'made up' by any journalist

I've not missed getting annoyed by football/FFP the EFL and all the rest of it. What a mess.

The 'legal' action is only for lost income, so for Barnsley it's what £3m?....give us 9 points and fine us the amount of compensation paid to the team relegated....biased I know, but seems to tick all the boxes and resolves their complaint

I suspect Chansiri won't find it amusing anyway

Not finding it amusing doesn't mean you can sue.

Which is a much more libellous suggestion than the quote itself.

The Arbitration decision part of this ‘charge’ seems to be missing in action still doesn’t it

You mean this bit of the article?

 

While Wednesday waits for the hearing, which The Athletic understands is imminent, they can take some confidence from a small victory in the arbitration stage of the proceedings that saw all the personal charges against Chansiri, former chief executive Katrien Meire and finance director John Redgate dropped.

The anonymous source sounds very bitter. 

 

So, the bottom club want another club relegated, without proof of wrongdoing, considering the panel has not yet even considered the charge.

 

I dont doubt DC can come across as entitled, but I've met him a couple of times and always seemed a genuine guy (well when speaking to me anyway)

 

There is no evidence that DC doesnt have money, in fact the very opposite considering what hes spent. Who are we supposed to be in debt to? Most of our 'debt'would be to DC?

 

Considering the charges against individuals have (rightly IMO) been dropped, why should we be automatically relegated and not Derby? Will they want Reading relegated automatically too once their FFP process begins? How about Birmingham, their points deduction was ok? Will Villa be automatically relegated twice if they come down from the EPL due to their stadium sale?
