As fans celebrated Lee Camp saving Nakhi Wells injury time penalty to ensure Birmingham City beat QPR 4-3 on Saturday, news filtered through that the EFL have made their proposed sanction against Blues for their aggravated breach of the Profit and Sustainability Rules.

Good piece Dan, that last paragraph starts with a very very big IF!
09:37, Mon 11 Feb
A much needed balanced assessment.

Thank you Dan.

I'm still waiting for Ren to answer some media questions as he said he would at the original GM press conference

Good read Dan 👍
09:42, Mon 11 Feb
Good stuff 👍

Let's just get it over with now
09:46, Mon 11 Feb
This is getting to be as tedious as the ongoing brexshit talks.

The EFL and Club need to announce the sanctions and we can carry on.

Ren and Co. then need to make sure it doesn't happen again.

6 points suspended I reckon.

Great work Dan, well researched and great reasoning behind it.
Whatever the penalty we must get it behind us this season and then, we either must comply or get FFP rules overturned and if a dozen clubs in similar situation then perhaps this can happen.

Quick Q.

You say we will be judged on a season to season basis from next year, does this mean we are allowed to lose no more than £13m next season?

Meaning, for example, we sell Che for £30m, we essentially have a massive chunk to then spend on building a title winning side for next season?

"However, rules against the conduct of a director or owner have not been brought in fully yet and as such it is impossible for the EFL to do this".


This is what pisses me off. The only people who suffer from a points deduction is those on the pitch including management and those in the stands.

The board will crack on with their day.

Good article Dan. Do we now the mechanics of what the EFL are proposing - i.e. will the "12" points be deducted this season or be applied from the start of our next season in the Championship?

Do Blues have any say in this?

Do guilty parties generally get any say in when punishments are meted out?!

Yes, we would be allowed no more than £13mil

However, we wouldn't have a big chunk to spend, because we're close to or over limits currently. I think we'll need to sell Che so we don't fail this season.

I doubt it. I think it'l be this season.

I'd much rather it be this season, starting next season on minus 6-12 would be very demoralising I reckon.

Missing out on potential playoffs and enough money to get us away from ALL this shit, would be even more demoralising.

Make no mistake, there is a slight chance here of promotion here. Blues, i reckon, will fight tooth and nail to avoid it being this season.

By "this season", do you mean we have to sell him before the end of June? I'm guessing the part of the transfer window that's in July & August is part of the next season. So we'd need to get any sale wrapped up soon, rather than the usual last minute stuff on August 31st.

it’s a great article Dan

i can’t get past the Anger stage !!!

i just can’t understand how we have people in charge with zero experience of football administration, which regardless of all else appears the main downfall

look across the expressway - and for all their failings at least their foreign owners brought in established administrators like Purslow, and Wyness before him

even when Yeung came on board, Michael Dunsford was appointed initially - albeit he didn’t stick around too long, ever done a piece in that?



our failings are with key decision makers at the Club then, who should have handled this better
