It would be extremely unprofessional for this to be leaked to the press before club. Fecking low life.

That would mean the league have said 12 and the club have said no, they’ll take their chances with the commission.

Ties up if the efl have offered that this weekend, their board meeting was Thursday.

Another couple of weeks at least then.

This was my first thought a very bold rumour so someone as said something somewhere. But hey ho we’re Blues and I keep hearing about this seige mentality so let’s all stay together and KRO supporting the boys in Royal Blue.

So the commission sits in say a fortnight, then we appeal that within a fortnight and that then takes time to sit. If we are not happy with that we appeal to European court for arbitration for sport. That will sit in about 2020. If we aren't in playoffs we withdraw appeal take points and crack on. If in the playoffs we win them and are in the prem so efl can go feck themselves.

Two issues 1. We have a no deal brexit so where do we appeal 2. We don't win playoffs

Isn’t it the body in Switzerland, and if deadlocked it goes to a Swiss Court.

This was my thought. I think the powers that be at Blues will delay this as long as we are in with a shout at the playoffs. If we fall away then I can see us accepting it.

Not sure if that’s possible or I’m just talking out my arse though.

I don't think it can go any further than Appeal under the Arbitration clauses in the EFL regulations which are final and binding.

Arbitration under those clauses would take at least 2-3 months - probably much longer.
We do win play off's. Remember Norwich? What if we went up this year after going to court to appeal putting off a penalty and then get relegated? Would the EFL come after Blues again?

What do you personally think will happen? I struggle to believe that it will be 12 points

I personally believe we will be deducted points, maybe as many as 12, this season.
