Did anyone from Brum get charged with misconduct when they got 9 points deducted?


Carson Yeung, their former owner / president got 6 years for money laundering in 2014. Doubt that was an EFL punishment though! :biggrin: Related to how he ran Brum though I’d imagine.

So I take it the rumours at the back end of last week we’re just that. Rumours. 

Of course they were. Kevtheowl is a WUM who has been posting on here for years claiming transfers were due to happen which never did.
 

He’s allegedly seen around 1000 new players at the training ground over that time. Just peddles BS. For what reason I have no idea

My main concern now is that any potential deduction won’t come off until next season and we’ll start on minus points as this really seems to be dragging on.

 

With Wigan getting a 12 point deduction I actually think we’d be fine with a deduction this season now so I’d rather get it out of the way and start a fresh next season.

 

A 9-12 point deduction next season would end our season before a ball is kicked.

They all happened mate, but no-one can find the key to the container down the training ground where all the players are kept. UTO

So who is left to sue the EFL for letting a bunch of crooks destroy Dave Whelan's Wigan project. They failed the Fit & Proper gangster test !

Thing is you can do all the tests and due diligence but ultimately it’s impossible to know what club owners will do in the future and in practice

If Dave whelan couldn’t foresee any issues with the new owners why would the EFL etc

Because he doesn't have to carry out a fit persons test, the only test he needs is the one that tells him they enough funds to give him the money

 

two very different things

Theres more people in our legal team (and they're doing more to keep us up)

 

Just hope the defence is a little more watertight than the performances on the pitch.

Due diligence wasn't Whelan's remit to perform ! He maybe one of those willing to take them on again.

Whelan had nothing to do with dude that is alledged to have conducted the betting fraud and filing for administration. The original deal looked pukka and the investment verifiable.

Exactly this, the new owner could have proven adequate funds to the efl but they have no way of forcing him to spend it.

Can we sell anything else to DC for £40m this season? Nuhiu?

Maybe he might want a 2000 year season ticket in the directors box - so its a real family legacy.

What happens on the pitch should stay on the pitch, Points won and lost. Anything else destroys the integrity of the game. 

 

Trying to deploy a system regarding financial integrity has too many factors in play makes it almost impossible. Small Towns, Big Cities; The pull of London for International players seems wholly unfair. The (Broke) Glaziers being able to borrow vast amount of money to buy Man U using negative equity in US as security; What was that about ? 

 

How can the governors of the game manage to keep a straight face while they compromise the  financial integrity of the game while huge parachute payments compromise the integrity of the championship on every level.  

The Premier league chief last week in front of the commons select committee.

 

Question - So how much funding have you supplied to the EFL to help them through the issues, all 71 clubs are having with lose of income because of Co-Vid

 

Answer - 'nothing the EFL have not asked for anything or additional help'

 

Question - But you do provide funding to the EFL

 

Answer 'Yes last season £400m was given in funding to the EFL'

 

Question - What was the split of that and to how many clubs

 

Answer - £260m of it is parachute payments to 9 clubs the other £140m is split between the remaining 62 clubs.

Yet some in authority will argue that parachute payments are not a major factor in financial disparities or the level of competition.

:laugh:
