It should just be automatic relegation.The punishment for FFP is a complete joke as described above in Anterimus post. It needs to be more concrete and teams gaining promotion after flouting it shouldn't be allowed to escape punishment. Too many are willing to take the gamble and hope for the safety of the PL.
It should just be automatic relegation.
Applied when you are in the league, so if Villa or Wolves came down they'd automatically drop into League 1 and an extra team would be promoted.
It should be black and white and applied as quickly as possible, not drag on for three years every time going to appeals, arbitration and panels where the club try to settle with the FA for a lesser penalty.
You have deliberately cheated over the course of a season to gain an advantage over other clubs, that should be punted out of the league.
And now Derby are trying to negotiate the standard 12 point deduction for entering administration!What I don't get is these clubs deliberately flaunt the rules, blatant cheating, then get the opportunity to 'negotiate' with the authorities over the punishment.
Ridiculous! It would be like me getting done for speeding and then saying, 'I'll settle for a £20 fine with £10 deferred for a year, what do you say?'
But it will make them more attractive to a new owner if they can get the 12 points deduction waived and it happened during exceptional circumstances.And now Derby are trying to negotiate the standard 12 point deduction for entering administration!
