There is an interesting article on Sportbible.com. I tried unsuccessfully to set up a link. It looks as though Leeds and Burnley are stirring things up, could get tasty.


Leicester is considering legal action as well

As a former colleague would say. Merseyside's third team get a good kicking. (He is/was a Tranmere fan)

That could be fun. But I recall when West Ham blatantly broke the rules by signing Carlos Tevez who then proceeded to get them out of relegation trouble (including a crucial last-day match winner away to Man U) - all they got was a token fine..... poor old Sheff United relegated instead got nowhere with their legal action.

It all depends on how much of this saga is covered by business competition national laws and how much is under the umbrella of the football authorities. If it's the latter we know full well that money is king - and justice or (heaven forbid!) any kind of morality goes out the window.

Football trying to clean up it's act - to little to late
The beautiful game is eating itself & spitting it's self out
Creative accounting to try & gain an advantage
Money has ruined the beautiful game & the Premier League is full of clubs who are trying to manipulate the rules
That is why i am not interested in the Premier League

I'm sure you'd be very interested in the Premier League if Argyle got promoted!

There are a lot on here who have said they have no interest in the Premier league so it would stand to reason that should Argyle make it there then these same people will surely boycott the club until its relegated, right?
It's a stupid thing to say because if we made it then we know everyone would be wanting to go to games and we would never be able to seat everyone.

How would it work for you if Argyle were to be challenging at the top of the Championship? Surely you wouldn't be wishing for poorer results so to avoid the dreaded Prem.

Not really interested in the Premier League, just in Argyle whatever division we were in. I would be embarrassed if we bought success via immoral ownership, but Argyle is part of my make up and there’s nothing I can do about it. Be it Man Utd or Welling Utd, if we win I have a warm glow for the rest of the weekend if we lose I’m gutted.

Happy with Hallett

I don't think any club would be successful in litigation against Everton, especially if Chelski and Man City are also docked points at some point in the near future for FFP breaches, in which case every club who has been relegated in the years in question - and you could throw Everton into the mix there too - would be looking at legal proceedings against them as well. It would all become an absolute mess.

West Ham paid compensation to Sheffield United of around £15 to £20 million. That level of compensation was agreed between the clubs and based on what lower placed Premier League clubs earned at that time (£30 million) the £15 to £20 million figure is about right in the way compensation is calculated.

I agree, there is no way any club can take legal action against another in this situation. Where do you start and where do you end ?

You would have to dissect the points gained and lost for every game they effected, across each season their financial irregularities related to. Not just relegation issues but the effect on titles, cup tie revenues, injuries, suspensions etc, the list is endless. Every club in any division directly or indirectly effected could stake a claim.

Heavy points deductions and relegations for the offenders and the rest just get on with it.

Although the numbers are a bit lower, it could be argued that money is also "ruining" the Championship, with many clubs constantly running at a loss and getting themselves into massive debt chasing the dream of reaching the Premier League.

Perhaps Argyle should have shown some principle and refused promotion.

Fortunately, it appears that our Chairman is interested in the Premier League and I like to think that we are evangelicals for how a Championship club aspiring to eventually reach the Premier League should be run.
