Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (a) sponsored by Sean Evers

May have been mentioned already, but when was the last time we’d had a player score 4 in a game ?
I remember John Alexander doing it years ago but must have been someone since then !

And an 8 goal swing across successive games can’t happen that often either.

Re: Wigan in Administration

If a club could find itself in a position where the only two options were: 1) inject money, break FFP, get penalised 2) go into administration, get penalised ...that would be scary. Agreed, but I'd certainly prefer option 1 over option 2 and I imagine any successful business man/woman owner would n...

Re: Wigan in Administration

If it is seen as unfair that a team avoids any such punishment in that case then the rule would have to be changed to automatically demote any team that enters administration. Or use other options...Currently if Wigan finish 13 points clear then they face no meaningful punishment. If they finish in...

Re: Wigan in Administration

WindermereRoyal asked if the 12 points deduction would apply if they finish more than 12 points outside of the relegation zone. The answer to that question is yes. The punishment is the points deduction, not a relegation. You are wrong to suggest otherwise. You might be of the view that this punish...

Re: Wigan in Administration

You're correct, the punishment is the point deduction, there's not waiting for it to actually affect promotion or relegation, that would be ridiculous. Why do people not read the details rather than just make things up ! It’s a 12 point deduction. It will be applied at the end of the season if Wiga...

Re: Wigan in Administration

So what? You never receive your penalty as long as you're not in the Play Offs and the points deduction can't put you into the relegation zone? This is where I'm confused. I thought the punishment was a points deduction - Nameless is insinuating that the punishment is suspended until it can affect ...

Jackson Corner I wouldn't laugh we could be next. Along with others sadly this Covid is going to hit football very hard.

Re: Wigan in Administration

I'd assume yes. That's how the penalty would normally be applied irrespective of league position (say, had they gone into administration in September). The punishment is the points deduction, not relegation - the deduction is just delayed if they are relegated without it. You would assume wrong. It...

Re: Wigan in Administration

Will they still be deducted the 12 points if they finish more than 12 points clear of the drop zone? I'd assume yes.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Stoke City (h) sponsored by John Halls

Can anyone explain why Stoke are favourites at the bookies for this game? We are the home team, with an almost fully fit squad that should be play-off contenders. Playing a team that are below us and we were on a decent run of form before the suspension. Plus they’ve had no manager for a week or so...

Re: Obita new contract

It’s an assumption we’re not going to offer him a deal surely ? I would think many deals will be on ice, probably pending clarification of FFP. Wouldn’t surprise me if there is a 1 year deal waiting to be signed at the end of the month unless FFP is scrapped in which case we can offer more. Yet anot...

Re: Season Ticket Refund?

I'll watch some of the iFollow and let the club keep the overpayment. My only gripe is that decision means I also forgo a refund on the Car Park Pass which is extortionate and, given the choice, I would have taken a refund on as it's exploitatively expensive I assume they're not stopping you from p...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

If after the first couple of games any outside chance of the play-offs is gone then I would fully expect players like Holsgrove to get minutes in July. July could well end up being a competitive pre-season. He won't be able to play for Reading this season under the new rules. Players out on loan cu...

Re: Season Ticket Refund?

Exceptional by the club. I was never going to take a refund, and I really hope as few people as possible do. Whether taking the credit option is helpful to the club I’m not sure. Helps short term cash flow but hits revenue for next season. Would be great to know what is going on with FFP and whether...
