According to SSN it has happened.

We are now out of the bottom 3 as they have been docked 12 points.

What are the odds they'll get 3 of them back on Saturday :wink:

They have got off to a good start this season with 11 points already in the bag. it will all depend now if it knocks the wind out of their sails and they fold or they feel hard done by and dig in for every point they can possibly get the rest of this season. I suspect what we will get is a cagey, dour affair on Saturday.
It's not the despair that will kill you, it's the hope.

I doubt it will make the slightest difference to how they apply themselves come 3 p.m. on Saturday.

I expect it will be a tight one largely because SMc doesn't seem overly adventurous and he won't over-stretch our back four
Come on you Sooopa ........

To be fair it is the result of a £4 million loan. It seems the loan company have screwed them over.

Is this official yet ? All I've seen is that they are “expected” to be docked 12 points. This would of course benefitus, but I still don't like it.

SSN were reporting it had happened this morning, but have since backed off.

From what the owner is saying it is highly likely - then again how often did our owner make statements that proved to be incorrect.

I think from every football supporters viewpoint you don't want to see clubs progress or survival curtailed by FFP Point docking or similar.

All supporters are the same ( in the lower leagues ) like us, so Charlton, Blackpool and Bolton are kindred spirits.

Let s not forget the alliance and thoughts of Burnley when we lost Ray Jones ( or was it Kieran Prince ? ) football supporters are bigger than bloody League administrators who do what? Screw community clubs like ours and the above to the wall through sanctioning dubious ownerships.

The League should look themselves in the mirror before sanctions such as this and what impact it'll have on fellow supporters....I might be wrong but they approve the owners in the first place, no names no pack-drill but there's plenty of copper bottomed 24 carat arseholes owning and running clubs that they've wholeheartedly approved and sanctioned

as ever, be careful what you wish for.... :roll:

Well said Stan. All these owners were blessed as “fit and proper” to run their respective clubs. There is unfortunately noone to hold the Football League to account over their approval of these awful owners who have wrecked so many old and respected clubs.

That's right 2'gers

I'm really pissed off with their "nothing to do with us stance"
that's clearly not correct....

To start with, the background of the guy who bought Leeds for example
the guy that owned Man City before the current Dubai consortium
Remember the guy at Gillingham who made and lost a fortune ( a while back)

It should be run by a Bernie Ecclestone Formula One type of principle; ( OK maybe a little extreme but hey ho ).
You want to play, you pay
Each club is graded by size, history and revenue plus existing playing staff and league position

You want to buy a Championship club : £20m deposit held by the League and the interest invested in Football activities
A bottom 6 Championship club? £5m
Premiership? £100m held on deposit.

Make you think rather than approving without any thought. Plus a credit free Club, as per Man Utd were. cannot be bought and the debt converted off the back of the revenue / potential revenues as per the current "owners" / Leeds lot from 20 odd years ago etc.
The sports littered with these Arseholes...

While your at it, bring back hanging.....
