Pompey and Middlesbrough already happened,
Pompey were basically relegated already weren't they? I'm pretty sure they would have gone down without the points deduction, so it wasn't much of a punishment.

Would I be right in thinking that Everton have broken ffp in the traditional way? That is by spending beyond their means on shit players/managers. While city have done it by paying themselves over inflated sponsorship deals?

I think so.

It’s also alleged that Citeh players were being paid modest amounts by the club to avoid FFP fines but their sponsors were picking up the tab of topping up the salaries to ensure their players are the amongst the highest paid in the division. Their sponsors obviously being companies owned by the same people.

The Prem don't have the bottle to hit them with a points deduction. The lower leagues do, but not the Prem.

They will get a slap on the wrist and a pathetic small fine and it will all be swept under the carpet, like Man City and Chelsea have done before.

They really have timed this so well, they could have had 15 points deducted and still stayed up. The promoted teams are pathetic, but we failed to beat one of them. :down:

I agree to an extent but this will give those teams around them a real boost that there’s another club right in the mix. Equally Everton might be galvanised by the injustice of it all.

they should have been relegated long ago for failing to achieve anything of note in the PL for around 20 years. Hopefully this puts their fans out of their misery and they enjoy some success further down the leagues.

Imagine cheating financially and still being that rubbish!

What injustices? Should have had them deducted last season & they'd have gone down so actually they are lucky.

Given how Dyche has them playing now, I think they will still survive, potentially with games to spare.

There will also be a huge siege mentality at the club which will probably spur them on further as well.
