Thought it was this season but they’re currently appealing. Sure that’s what one of the commentators said earlier.

There's conflicting reports about this. I mind watching EFL highlights, when it first broke on Quest and they said next season, since then I've seen this season. The whole thing seems a shambles, report I seen said the owner bet a good sum on them being relegated, probably nonsense. I'd like to know how the EFL fit and proper owner qualification works. Happening far too often. They have to take some responsibility.

Still some potential for Sheffield Wednesday to steal one of the relegation places.

I was reading about the potential relegation scenario just before the final whistles. It was all a bit complicated, and with the potential of lawyers getting involved it could get time consuming.

Perhaps all concerned could get over to JKB and get a crash course in the possible ramifications. I'm sure Leslie Deans (not my area of expertise) would put in his tuppence worth.

With appeals etc, punishments for Wednesday and Derby, if found guilty, are likely to impact next season not this, in my opinion.

Wednesday case is mainly that they were told what they did was ok, by the EFL. It was only when inept Parry took over and their minds changed.

If Wednesday do get a points deduction next season and keep Monk as manager, they are almost certianties for relegation, agan in my opinion.

That makes more sense, tbh, but I understood Wigan were going to appeal anyway. Although I suppose that doesn't necessarily mean they are going to court, the EFL will hear the appeal, no?

The ineptness was Shaun Harvey if he OK'd the stadium sale.

 

But with Wednesday it is pretty serious.  They said in the club accounts for 2017-18 that they had banked a £35m profit from selling the ground.  But the Land Registry records show that the sale took place in June 2019.  So there's a deception there.  It also explains why it took a while for the League to do anything about it - it ramped up when they saw the Land Registry return.

 

They've had the hearing into Wednesday.  The points deduction is bound to relegate them.  The starting point will be 12.  Their main hope is to delay it to next season.  Derby might want one this season as they're safe enough.  Won't want to start next year on -15.

Appeal being heard on Monday.  Three man arbitration panel.  One chosen by Wigan, one by the EFL, and the third chosen by the other panel members. 

 

Appeal is bound to fail.  The only ground of success is if there is force majeure.  There is no force majeure here.  Can't claim Covid because Au Yeung bought the club in June.  Plainly knew about it.

Didn’t realise the final matches were on last night - can’t believe Forest shat the bed like that. Unbelievable. Would have loved to have seen them in the top flight.

Think I've been on Clyde's pitch more than he has Birmingham's.

Utterly embarrasing behaviour.
