Hillsborough Ground Sale Irregularities Under Investigation.

Recommended Posts

So it seems the EFL are finally jumping in an investigation the sale of Hillsborough, after concerns were raised by several Chanpionship chairmen.

 

It seems Wednesday balanced the books and escaped FFP sanctions by declaring the sale of Hillsborough in the 2018 accounts, however the land registry and requested change of ownership were carried out a whole year later.

 

Doesn't bode too well does it, especially when the chairman himself was publicly open on several occasions, regarding the massive deficits and unavoidable sanctions that the club faced for the breach. He then went on to balance the books with the sale of the club and it "appears" that he declared it to have come about earlier in order to cheat the system.

 

Any attempts to defraud or cheat the system, should be sanctioned with the heaviest of punishments. Long term embargo and point deduction should be sanctioned, should it be proven to be true.

 

Other clubs achieve success whilst staying the right side of the rules, you only have to look at us for proof of this. Cheating the system gives an unfair advantage if utilised correctly.

Your posts are absolute nonsense, the EFL's P&S rules are so hamfisted that any half decent lawyer will tie them in knots. There is nothing in the EFL rules to state that a ground sale cannot happen.

 

Can you name the "several chairman" that raised the concerns?

Based on all the whinging Steve Gibson at Middlesbrough has done regarding Derby’s ground sale I would assume it’s safe to say he will be one of them.

I find amazing that people link spurious articles like that as fact, link something from the EFL themselves if you want to back up your point.

 

Steve Gibson is one, who are the others?

That's all I've seen. Something to do with it not land registry and when it was sold.

The EFL have got themselves into this mess anyway. There's nothing in the rules to say club's can't sell their ground so on that basis there's no case.

There was an article in the Times saying the EFL were asking Chansari for an explanation why the ground sale appeared in the 2018 accounts but not in land register documents until a year later.

Chansari is showing what he thinks of the EFL rules by not trying to hide what he’s done

There is nothing what so ever written in the rules saying that ground sales can't have, there is plenty in the rules regarding transparency of books however. 

 

It appears you lot have transferred the ground as a last gasp saviour, but then you filed this in the previous years accounts in order to balance and bodge the books. There are many a rule about this.

The EFL have already accepted it I doubt they can go back now, the rules need a complete overhaul before the ruin the Championship.
