    Surely the better 7% return is on Birmingham?

    Was about to post the same, no way is their squad strong enough to make the play offs and they’re likely to get a 12 point deduction.

    It seems pretty confused, but most people seem to think this season. Imagine if (unlikely I know) they did get promoted this season while appealing against a 12 pt deduction - don't think the rest of the league would be happy.

    This seems to be the problem with a points deduction. It's unlikely that they will get into the play-offs, but, not out of the question, and if they did but the deduction took them outside, presumably they do have a right of appeal. How does the EFL cope with that, taking into account the time constraints on getting the play-off games played?

    I don't like the idea of point deductions, I know the argument, they've broken the rules to get the points therefore....
    I don't like like em, but think transfer window bans are more appropriate.

    I've seen this said but how did it work? You have to register players and if they somehow got a player in by paying he should be ineligible which I think is normally a 3 pt deduction per game?

    Yeah, just give her the downside of a five day week, no out of hours duties and a measly average pay of £110k per annum .... and I'll bet she'll have you singing in the Luton Girls Choir within days! ;)

    They were under a 'soft' embargo. Basically the EFL saying they'd breached FFP and gave Brum the chance to show them they were working to get on the right side of it
    "so please don't sign any players until we can see you're coming out of this". Blues ignored the warning, there was no official embargo to prevent them registering Pedersen, so the EFL then lumped a full embargo on them and now they face a 12 point penalty. 6 for breaking FFP and 6 for taking the ****

    And Blues have disappeared off the list. Fair play to Villa and respect to Grealish for the impact he’s had and how he handled himself with the Blues fan....

    So putting your house on Villa to finish outside the top six would now have you sweating buckets.

    Don't gamble. Only the Bookies ever win.

    I nearly took 33/1 on Villa to win promotion before the Blues game, seeing how much better they've been playing since Grealish's return. I was going to put £10 on to soften the blow (and possibly pay majority of next years ST) in case they miraculously managed it. I bottled it, they're now 11/1.

    Only if Grealish stays fit, they're nothing without him.
