If I decide to sell my house, I basically decide what the price will be.  Who decided that the Hillsborough Stadium was valued at £60 million, especially when you're selling it to yourself?

The 12 point deduction will be a  blow to the club but I think the biggest concern the SWFC fans should be worrying about is that your Chairman, (for how long?) now actually owns your ground, your biggest asset, which appears now to be separated from the rest of the fabric of the club? 

 

How much will he want to sell it back, especially if things turn acrimonious? 

I don’t think that matters much.

 

If it did, United fans would have been worried for years. Even more so now that the Lane is mortgaged and part owned by McCabe.

 

Its all just devices to provide liquidity.

 

Far more worrying is that the lunatics are still running the asylum.

Terrible decision by the EFL and panel, points deduction should have been more than 12 points, for the devious stunt pulled by Chancer's "advisors", and shame on him for going along with it. 

 

We'll probably never get the full details of why a  company up in West Yorkshire helped closed down "Sheffield 4", via voluntary insolvency,  a company that had no bank account, so it couldn't actually trade, but instead of filling in a Companies House form to close it down (five minute job), it took an insolvency team in Heckmondwike area to do it, and cost 18,000 pounds.

 

Charlton have good reason to complain, the points deduction should have taken place this season. 

 

Luckily, as at least one person on here keeps reminding us, Mester Chancer is a "brilliant, top businessman", so no doubt the books will be perfect next time around.

We don't know what evidence the club had to counter the EFL so not sure we can be saying it should be more or less. 12 points is a substantial amount, in fact the most that they could give us unless proven the club tried to mislead the EFL which must of not been proven.

 

It's probably split in the fan base of fans wanting it this season or next, I wouldn't of complained too much if this season.

 

It's alright Charlton claiming it should of been this season so that they save themselves but the breach was technically the season before so shouldn't it be that season anyway, not this.  Added to the fact we would of been well into pre season if covid hadn't turned up.

One of the more plausible explanations I've heard for deferring the points deduction is that both Birmingham and Derby face losing points as well. Assuming they lose 12 points as well and all points deductions were applied this season, Wednesday and Birmingham would be relegated but Derby wouldn't.

 

Basically, the same offence/penalty would impact two of the three clubs much more significantly.

 

But it's all hearsay and rumours at the moment.

I think Wednesday should be just about good enough to be safe next season, however attracting quality players has got to be a worry, and with an already ageing and weak squad, it's going to be very tough.

Just hope Mr Chansiri learns a lesson and begins to listen to people with English football knowledge ( though probably doubtful ) my opinion is his first phonecall should be to Chris Turner to get himself a  CEO he knows the business and more importantly understands the club and fans.  then strip  the business back and work from there.

so here we go guys,we know how good your are at stats,what has happened to teams in the past thats lost 12 points? any promoted or demoted?

and what will we attract this coming season as i dont think theres a lot we can spend,the main problem we have a top business man,whos hands are tied as in he cannot spend his money on his business ,unlike any other business its a stupid rule in my opinion.

If Wednesday had battled to win points the way Wigan did when they were told they were going to be docked 12 points we wouldn't be having Charlton calling for it to be this season. I don't see how it could be this season though when Derby and Birmingham have still not been informed of any penalty they face, plus the talk of appealing any decision. I thought there was another club that had bought their ground, was that Villa?
