Recommended Posts

The Telegraph have reported Middlesbrough owner Steve Gibson is determined to raise the issue at the meeting on May 1 and wants the EFL to launch an investigation into the financial conduct of Championship rivals Derby County, Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday.  He says the three clubs are using loopholes to get around FFP and upset because Boro have sold players valued around £40m to balance the books.The article  says Derby are under a soft embargo already although the EFL refuse to comment.

 If the loopholes are within the law, then use them and  why should he critize other clubs , he,s been in the game long enough to know the rights from wrongs.

Why should he shut the hell up though Mooks?... He has every right to hold a grudge when his team are complying with rules, yet others are blatantly exploiting them in order to gain an unfair advantage.

 

Whilst I can't say that I am 100%, in my opinion Sheffield Wednesday are using a similar method to that which LCFC were punished for a years ago. Therefore it is only right and consistent for the EFL to investigate the club and if found to be "cheating" the system, they should also be punished. 

 

Leicester City in conjunction with Dave Richards, sold sponsorship rights to a company for a minimal amount. The company in mention Trestellar Ltd, then sold all sponsorship rights back to the club for a fee in excess of £11m. This amount being the amount needed by the club in order to balance books and comply with FFP rules. 

 

Trestellar Ltd was a company registered in Sheffield (Shepcote) under the names of Dave Richards children, however the supposed business premises were empty and had no signs of said company existing. 

 

After a thorough investigations, it was ruled in favour of the EFL. 

 

So then you have to question the taxi and energy drink company who are dominant sponsors at Sheffield Wednesday? (X) months later, neither exist other than in branding? 

 

It appears that the companies in mention were set up just 48 hours prior to the sponsorship deal? The companies were created by Mr Chansiri,  before being transferred to a company called "Pan 1" in Hong Kong?.

 

It's ok saying that loopholes are there to be exploited, but SHOULD any club be found to be doing it to deliberately bypass rules, whether that be for financial gain or full an advantage over other clubs. Then they SHOULD be heavily penalised. 

 

Let's remember that these rules have been introduced to promote a level playing field, whilst PROTECTING clubs. 

 

IF any of these clubs have been naughty, then it is quite simple! PUNISH them heavily. Large fines, lengthly transfer embargos and point deductions. 

 

Cheats should be allowed to prosper..... Well done to Boro's chairman I say!

Leave him to it, I think it looks a pretty transparent argument. 

 

Fair play to him for challenging it and bringing it to the attention of the ELF. Hopefully they will investigate and should they find anything, deal with it accordingly. 

 

In the meantime i'm off to buy an elev8 energy drink, think I will book a d-line taxi to take me there!

 

Any ideas where I can find the number for D-line taxi's Sheffield? Actually any idea where I can pick up an Elev8 energy drink?
