The League and Stevenage's appeal against the suspended points deduction for Macclesfield has been successful.  The Macc Lads have had 6 points deducted, rather than the idiotic 2 plus 4 held over to 2020-21 that had been put in place.

 

Which means they get relegated.  By 0.1 point per game.

 

Although I don't think they've amortized the point deduction over the season, which is what logically should happen (i.e. they've been deducted points for a 46 game season rather than the 37 they played).  Had they done so, then Macclesfield would, by my maths, have gone down by 0.01 point per game.

 

I wonder what this means for the Sheffield Wednesday case.  Given that their deduction was also held over...

I was hoping it'd mean the EFL could finally move on and get the fixtures sorted, first games are a month tomorrow...

...but you make a good point about Sheffield Wednesday. Can't see Charlton keeping quiet, although they have their own problems to sort out.

Absolutely pissing myself at the English League One salary cap being £2.5 million a year. 

You take a squad of 20 and that’s £125,000 a year per head on average. 

Some Sunderland players will be on that a month.

Yep. Percentage of turnover is the only realistic way to get this into the game.

Indeed. Where’s the £2.5million come from? Is it completely arbitrary? 
 

Sunderland will basically need to buy a whole new team.

Was under the impression that players already signed are capped at a level that fits in with the squad limit.

They might be hiring a few 'business consultants'.

Interesting spurs will need to be in two places at once , possibly city or united or both if they are in the super cup as well.

Suspect multiple Aston Villa v Liverpool youth team type episodes again,

Hope so, we hadn't put 5 past Liverpool since the mid-Seventies before that game

What’s the likelihood of Charlton doing a Bury then?

EFL mistakes are why Sheffield Wednesday Are being punished next season not this.

 

Full case report out Monday 17th. 

Case report is actually shocking.  The EFL was writing out to clubs telling them that Birmingham City were being told to sell players in the January window (which depressed the price) - at the same time as they were telling Wednesday to backdate a ground sale so they would not fail.

 

It's the epitome of bias.

Their credability with me evaporated the moment they elected to give Shaun Harvey the top job.
