I’ve heard we’ve been given 3, suspended too.

Hope you're right, think you are very very wrong
What are your thoughts then, Mayor?

I think we're going to get deducted 12 points.

The EFL have been very bullish which makes me think they have a solid case.

Cheers.
I'm hoping for 6 suspended as well as 6, or worst case 9 with 3 suspended

Anyone know if they’ve met today or are we just speculating here?

The can be bullish about the case, because passing or failing P&S is objective. Leaving aside the cheat codes certain clubs use.

Have they been bullish about the penalty? 12 is what they’re asking for. That is going to be top bins. The absolute worst they think that they can justify. Not necessarily what is reasonable.

My worry about Mishcons is that they are aggressive in litigation. That is not always the way to go. But they are smart enough to play the mitigation game and they will be getting a decent QC (I assume) for the hearing itself.

If they are bullish and have a solid case then why has it taken so long? If the EFL were cock sure and this was clear cut then this would have been sorted months ago. What's changed?
The EFL isn't in sole control of the procedure.

. I've heard we're being deducted 12 points for signing Pedersen but because we signed Kendo Nagasaki all those years ago we're being awarded 24 .
Southside Blue , not only keeping the blues alive but also singlehandedly saving the British Manufacturing Industry .
According to Mayor, the delay was on our side, not EFL's.

Our representative is taking over from Huw Jenkins at Swansea.That's why he had to pull out.

Agree.They will want to show their teeth over being disrespected over Pederson.
It’s like the prosecution going for a first degree murder conviction in the hope they get something else that they would be secretly happy with.
I reckon we’ll get 6 points but could be 9.

I still hold on to the hope that as we're the 'test case' for the new rules, they aren't going to go high with us, knowing that several other clubs will potentially fail FFP with worse figures than us; it doesn't leave them with much else to go with if they do.

I don't know, haven't we failed it pretty badly?

Both sides agreed to it

People seem to forget that we are not just there because our figures are horrendous. We signed a player when we were told not to. That is probably a bigger piss take than anything else. We are being tried for two separate things and deserved to be punished

We can sign anyone we want but need permission to register him to play. The efl gave that permission.

regarding villa ffp should they fail it but go up in the play offs does that follow them into the prem because if it doesn't it's basically a free licence to gamble with over the 3 year ffp period and I thought ffp was designed for that reason to stop clubs basically gambling?

That would be very spawny if that happened. But apparently vile aren't at all spawny according to some on here, so I shouldn't worry about it.

I dont tbink vile would give a shiny shit, they would come straight back with a huge wedge and parachute payments leaving them 3 years to do it legally. Win win win !
