    PL Rules and Everton fallout

    yes they got docked 10 points but this may only be the start for them.

    Saw a post on social media and if its true Everton are completely screwed

    The Premier League rules and judgement states that if any other team feel as though Everton had an unfair sporting advantage over them because of their cheating, then they can seek compensation.

    So Burnley can sue them for 100m after they were relegated in 21/22
    Leicester can sue them for 100m after they were relegated in 22/23

    Also every team that finished below them (18 in total) over the last 3 years spanning 4 seasons will be entitled to roughly 2.2m per place they would have been higher in the PL

    PLUS any team that Everton beat during this time can also sue them if 3 points would have had that team higher up in the table whilst Everton cheated and had an unfair sporting advantage

    Plus clubs like Leicester that were beaten by Everton in this period they had an unfair advantage. Leicester can contest that 3 additional points they lost to Everton would have had them qualify for the Champions league and all that extra money

    ooof this could be the begining of the end for them and possibly FFP

    Surely clubs like Chelsea and Forest will fail FFP with their spending

    Chelsea is classed as "the big 6".. nothing will happen to them..

    Usually I'd agree but they may want to make an example of sorts of the big 6 and Chelsea are best placed for that to happen in my opinion, I know City have worse charges against them but I really think that nothing will happen there with them. To much external politic tied up in the ownership and our govt. interests.

    I dunno. I get the feeeling that Chelsea have stretched the rules to the point of breaking with their 8 year deals...but stopped just shy of actually breaking them.

    Twats.

    Prem apperently going back to 2008 and looking at some agent decisions and payments around Defoe and Spuds as well.

    If that is the case and they are going 15 years back, a few clubs could we be getting a bit sweaty.

    Aye he wasn't guilty of overspending. Just taking it out on his and his family's behalf.

    Everton will appeal and probably get a reduction. 10 points for overspending 19 mil, thats way to harsh.

    Everton will get sued by Leicester and Burnely for 200 mil? For overspending 19 mil? Never in a million years.

    As for City, they will get away with it. As will Chelsea.
