Even if that was true, EFL would have still announced the decision. A club challenging the decision would not stop EFL releasing a statement on the outcome.

 

 

Someone said/claimed that it was down to Wednesday to announce the decision.

Neither do I, just speculating why nothing has been announced.

 

If it was a legal case in court, suspect this would have been done by lunchtime on day one and Nick De Marco back home tucking into a cherry pie, following a job well done. 

Like Fernando's court case..... which they completely ignored and did their own thing

 

That is the major fear, didn't DC also threaten to take legal action if he wasn't happy with the way this was run?

The feeling is growing that the decision has been given and found against us and that DC is now going through the appeal process.  

 

Reason for this feeling is the time taken to announce the outcome. 

Can't that be the same for the reverse outcome though ?

There is a MASSIVE myth that we have somehow spent loads of money and wasted it.

 

We have in the context of OUR recent history but we haven’t in the context of our peers and fuckedup modern football.

 

We are midtable in the Championship.


We’ve spent loads when you compare it to the income that’s been brought into the club. Who do you class as our peers?

It's a 21 point deduction, but if we don't announce it nobody knows about it and we stay in the Championship

IIRC in previous cases, they are happy to announce that they have won and that an appeal has been lodged? They even win cases and then appeal the penalty eg. Macclesfield

 

I don't recall any cases of them not publicising the result irrespective of what happened next

Agree with this, decision is made and then you decide whether to appeal.no point in saying guilty and appeal was turned down in one go.

It would have leaked out somehow.

Part of me thinks DC would have been over hear if we had been found guilty. One thing he does do is front things up.

It just doesn’t seem right that we don’t know exactly what we have to do in the last few games, how many points we need. Fulham away for example, a draw would normally be a good result, however we don’t know if we need maximum points, it would alter team selection, tactics etc.

No idea.

 

I'm just trying to sum up the mood amongst some OT posters.

Think that was FA to be fair, but similar principle....

 

FA: allegation of Championship player saying a racist word in a pre season game. Acquitted in court due to lack of evidence. Verdict, guilty

 

FA: Premier league player being filmed during a game game using racist words. Verdict, not guilty.

Huddersfield spent more than us the year they went up.

 

Just as one example.

 

People keep citing Brentford but their stadium is prime real estate which is why they’ve sold it and moved to a new one at the side of the railway tracks.

 

I’ve picked those two examples and ignored both those clubs with parachute payments and other easier examples.

 

This is NOT about the way the Chairman has run the club but it’s about unfair rules and limits that were set in 2014.

 

The Championship in its present form is unsustainable for the vast majority of clubs unless you have parachute payments or strike lucky.

It really is such a tiny minority of our fan base that appreciate the current and future issues our club is going to have and  an even smaller minority that understand the level of mismanagement of chansiri

 

Wish I was as clever as you.

To be honest, I dont think it makes much difference. The EFL can bully league 2 clubs with limited resources to defend themselves, but EFL dont have the balls to relegate us, incurring the almighty legal shitstorm DC would bring down on them. 

 

The window for applying  meaningful points deduction passed a few games ago IMO (notwithstanding the fact I do not think we are guilty)

And anyone wonders why we are concerned what they might do and why it has taken so long think about this

People soon forget that this current issue and hearing was consistently pushed back by SWFC and dragging it out as much as possible, yet it’s still always the EFL Getting blamed 

 

I'm pleased you weren't representing us at the tribunal.

Isn't this perhaps the greatest indictment of the Chansiri era. Willing to breach ffp and everything that goes with it for what? To be the 8th highest salary spenders in the championship? To be fair we did well to make the playoffs twice but to gamble our future on promotion seems just unbelievable in retrospect.
