I certainly did not come here looking for sympathy. I came here to chat with football fans who have different opinions on different topics !!
If you read the article in the Guardian you may have noticed the statement issued by the EFL

“In reaching the settlement, the EFL acknowledges that the club did not make any deliberate attempt to infringe the rules or to deceive and that the dispute arose out of genuine differences of interpretation of the rules between the parties.”
No one questions your motives.
The issue that most of us will focus on is that you have previous - and hence sympathy will be tough to locate.

Are you anticipating the EPL to be similarly compromising on this occasion?
 
No not at all. I expect them to boot f##k us for being so dammed arkward !!
We made a complete mess of things in the 20/21 & have no real excuse other than our DOF is an idiot & a fraud.

As shit as Rudkin is, you've got to ask why Top trusts him so much. Especially after his many mistakes.

Can i just ask, for a team that sold Fofana and Maguire for like billions..

What the f*** did you do with all of that to end up in the actual state you are in now? Almost makes our chaos of the last two years look reasonable

We are a disaster .. We overpaid players and let top players run their contacts down. Our DOF is an idiot but our owner just loves him. We are not the same club since our owner died in the helicopter crash.

Pretty much the biggest wage bill outside the top 6 in the year they went down, nigh on £200m IIRC.

So Chelsea's latest PSR trick....they sold Chelsea women to themselves on 28 June
Yeah, they offered Electric Company, Marylebone Station and a Get Out Of Jail Free card.

Do the PL have to approve these transactions?

They could be in trouble if they are just hoping the PL will allow this & the hotels to be included in the numbers, then again they are part of the top 6 so nothing to see here.

Can we just bin off this rules, like seriously they are an absolute mockery.

This type of thing basically gives everyone a free pass now.

It depends whether the PL accept it or not, we will know when clubs submit the accounts in January but they would have to really reach and find wording like "against good faith" because the clubs voted against banning sales of stadium to themselves a few years ago when it was all the craze in the EFL.

When the clubs voted in FFP it was probably in good faith, over a decade on now & it's become a farce with every club just trying to find ways around it. It really does need scrapping. Well done Masters, non of this happens if you just gave us & Everton suspended points deductions instead of trying to throw the book at us.

I think the nail in the coffin always was the inflated transfer fees because there is no way the PL can reasonably charge any club for anything related to them. That trick has killed PSR, and it'll kill the new version coming in 25/26 based on revenue % too as that will include transfers so the more you inflate transfers, the more revenue you get & the more you can spend.

They just need to write these rules off as an awful experiment that's completely skewed football. The level playing field has completely gone because of these rules & created an unchallengeable heirachy.

Villa really have played this game well, being able to throw 50mil at Everton then call back the Saudis…

Saudi interest in Villa's Diaby​

Saudi Pro League club Al Ittihad want to sign Aston Villa winger Moussa Diaby this summer, according to Sky in Germany.
Diaby is said to be keen on the move with the Saudi club hoping to strike a deal for €55m (£46.2m).
There is no agreement between the two clubs at this stage.
