You could probably take from when they just scrapped past Shrewsbury in the FA cup. Their wins from there were by the odd goal until Crystal Palace recently. Not that it makes any difference to us it seems. A team seems to either carry on their good form or seem to regain their form when they play us.

Wigan points deduction will only be applied this year if it means they wouldn't have got relegated without it. If they finish season in bottom three they start next season on -12.

Why wasn't this rule in place last season? Why did Small Heath basically get away with a free, meaningless, points deduction rather than having to start this season -10?

Wasn't sure where to put this but it shows what can be achieved with a lot less resources we have at our disposal either in the premier league or championship

Further proof of the simply amazing job that Chris Wilder did to get #SUFC promoted with 6th lowest average wage in Championship.

Every other side in top 6 had an average wage at least 2 1/2 times higher than #SUFC . Villa 5 times higher. 🎩 Hats off.

IIRC Birmingham were punished fairly late in the season for infractions which had occurred much earlier whereas Wigan were punished automatically as soon as they went into administration. In the latter case, Wigan chose (to some extent) when they went bust and the authorities don't want teams to be able to cheat the system by choosing to take the points deduction when it won't have a material impact on their footballing future.

Well, however it came about, it certainly seems that they were "spawny" as fuck to have a points deduction that made no difference whatsoever.

It was pretty obvious that the Football League waited until the points deduction would make no difference before imposing it.

Just pointless, they were already in trouble and he lunges in like that when the bloke was leaving the area and no threat. No surprise that said player's professional career consists of playing for Leeds and under Joey Barton.

Anyway, seems like we have avoided the mad scramble for tickets at Fleetwood next season.

Another red for Fleetwood.

Paddy Madden.  Booked for diving.  Then booked again for mouthing off to the ref.

Chelsea 4/10, Draw 15/4, Watford 13/2. That is quite a tasty price for Watford.

Brighton leading at Norwich. They’ll be pretty much safe with a win today.
