It's only a 6 point deduction atm.

Maybe increased by a further 6 towards the end of the season.

Very crafty that they were able to sign Andy Carrol and then 2 days later this ! Smacks of more :poop:.

I knew about them last season, another one that I think will get further deductions down the line.

There may well be more yet.

Does the punishment fit the crime?

They have tried to game the system by breaking FFP. They have cheated all of the other clubs who have abided by those rules. They will have taken points off teams that will have missed out on automatic promotion, have missed getting into the play-offs, or have been relegated.

Yet for having done this, either deliberately or through financial mismanagement, they are deducted a mere 6 points - and while they drop a few places they are still outside the relegation zone.

Financial Fair Play in the EFL is not Fit For Purpose.
