I see Sheffield Wednesday have been deducted 12 points from the start of next season due to irregularities with their ground sale. I hope Villa are in the clear now?
Funny how Man City are never deducted points over their past misdemeanors, but apparently still have a 10 million euro fine to pay even they overturned that recent 2 year ban from competing in the Champions League??

Seems odd that the points deduction gets applied next season rather than this season (which would've resulted in relegation).

There'll be at least 3 clubs pretty pissed off about that!

Is it a case of the Premier League clubs being able to afford the best lawyers and the FA etc., not having the stomach or finances to fight the top clubs and impose points deductions? I still can't quite get my head round how Man City have been exonerated of the charge/ban but still have to cough up €10m. Surely a fine of that amount constitutes guilt??

It’s very dodgy and probably undermines the whole UEFA FFP.
They got fined for not co-opearating with a process that would have found against them if they did. It is a sham.

Good. Load of bollocks anyway, designed entirely to preserve the rule of Man United  Real Madrid, Juventus, etc, in perpetuity.

Have any PL clubs ever had points deductions for FFP breaches? Seems like the Championship clubs or lower leagues face the points penalty.

Portsmouth had nine points deducted for entering administration. That's the only time a Premier League team has had points deducted.

Somehow that's entirely different to blatantly spending above FFP rules? As you say, the whole system is set-up to protect the top clubs who caused FFP in the first place! A bit ironic isn't it?

For financial reasons? Didn't Man U and Arsenal once have points deducted for their players having a brawl?

Boro had 2 points (I think) for not fulfilling a fixture as they had a load of players ill, under Robson, which was the season they got relegated.

You're correct, I had forgotten Middlesbrough. I didn't mention Arsenal/Man U as that was pre-Premier League.

Boro were docked 3 points, and relegated by 2 points.

That was a different game, Millwall v Arsenal.

Soz, I was only a nipper, dreaming about what Mita Copiers could be.
Hilarious article that, btw. Especially in the description of Tony Adams.
