Why aren’t the national newspapers asking the EFL when there will be an announcement?

Think it's out of the efl's hand now..the panel can't make up their minds....

They need dismiss the case against..the efl obviously can't prove beyond reasonable doubt we did anything wrong...

Agreed, if they can’t make up their minds there is obviously doubt and the entire division can’t be made to wait indefinitely until they can come to a conclusion.

 

You can only assume we have argued our case well and they are now split on whether we did anything wrong.

I might be wrong but didn’t the hearing get brought forward a week to appease all the clubs that have been kicking off to bring a bit more clarity to the situation?

 

That worked out well, didn’t it? 🙄

Why is there a media blackout regarding this issue?

 

Why aren’t the national newspapers asking the EFL when there will be an announcement?

 

Why aren’t the sports writers and journalists asking serious questions about this situation?

 

Im seeing a couple of articles about how it’s frustrating having to wait but haven’t seen one single article where a writer has documented their search for answers, about how they’ve contacted the EFL and asked for answers, how they’ve spoke to someone at the EFL and asked them what’s going on?

 

Why aren’t our journalists banging down their doors for an answer on what’s happening, why there is a delay, what’s causing this lack of final outcome etc?

 

 


Nationally I genuinely believe it’s because Chansiri won’t pick up the phone to them. 
 

Look at every other club going through either financial trouble, trouble with the EFL or boardroom unrest. They all put someone up to speak on the likes of TalkSPORT & 5live. Wednesday doesn’t have a media savvy spokesperson/chief exec, with all the answers, so DC is the voice they want to hear from. We saw it last summer, TalkSPORT badgered him for weeks when Bruce left. It’s the same at Derby, but when sh*t hits the fan, Mel Morris is on the radio that week speaking live. 
 

DC doesn’t give time of day to anyone in the national football press because, and imo to his credit, I think he sees them for what they are. They don’t report on unrest because they want it resolved ‘for the fans’ or ‘for the local community’. They report it because the chairman, chief exec etc. comes on and it makes a headline that day and it pulls in listeners/viewers/readers to their programme/article.

Thing I can't understand is by leaving a decision until this late in the season they are just leaving themselves open to understandable accusations of bias whichever way the verdict goes.

Monday we will get the verdict.

 

Once they know for sure how many points to deduct us so even if we lose to Boro we still survive by one point.  Or it will be even more perfect for them if we could still go down on the last day but we need to lose and there needs to be a 15 goal swing or something.

 

Been saying it for weeks now and the more it drags on the more I am convinced that's what's going on.   Neither will appeal the decision either.

Surely that would be to obvious to other clubs what they have done (deducting us an amount that just keeps us up). Can imagine the relegated teams would all appeal it.

Isn’t that more or less what the independent panel put together to decide Macclesfield not paying their players have just done? Just enough to keep them up. 
 

If they do only deduct enough to finish say a point or goal difference clear it’ll be interesting to see how the EFL move forwards. Because it would pretty strongly suggest that the panels don’t see relegation as an acceptable punishment for teams.

What they do all the time. No team gets properly punished for this. Not one with a rich owner and a top lawyer anyway.

The EFL dont want to relegate us or anyone for that matter via this means..

 

They just have to be seen to be doing the right thing by it all.

Seems farcical that a verdict might still be applied to this season. The season was supposed to be over at the beginning of May and they still haven't decided in mid-July. Assuming there hadn't been Coronavirus the 2020-21 season would have been about to kick off right about now.

Hmmm. Not one for theories of deals between parties that don’t really give a dam either way...  but I am beginning to think there is no way it’s coming before season end. Surely too much hassle for all concerned.

I've been to the chippy at Manor Top which I think was run by Ray White and that tasted as though it had been warmed up.

 Loved the one on the corner of Windy house lane though, top chippy if you managed to avoid the burning cars lol

Because apparently football doesn’t exist below the Premier League.

Absolutely.

 

Just finished listening to a podcast ( because I can't sleep,) with that wally Robbie Savage called 606 on five live. With all the issues and talking points going on with football right now and all they have debated for the last hour is whether Man Utd will finish above Liverpool next season with a collection of pubescent callers.

 

606 used to be fantastic with Alan Green, it's now just a show designed for 15 year olds who support a top 6 club.

 

Boils my pisss.
