Stoke Relegation Thread

Recommended Posts

My concern is that they've got Birmingham coming up, who are looking poor (isn't their manager leaving when the season ends in a few weeks?) and also in their last game, Forest will probably rest loads for the play-offs - hopefully Stoke are down by then and it won't matter.

If Wigan, well the administrators can show that a force majeure clause is applicable, which Covid is in theory like a war etc.  Then they may escape a punishment. It will be, for them long shot , getting the facts off the HK people even harder. One thing is for sure is that teams spending above their means and others that are mismanaged  needs to be stopped.  Each club should only enter a league where they can pay all wages, operating costs and all additional expenses. This should be in place each season with guarantees and done before the first game. Penalty for the owner for failure 5 year Stoke season ticket.

This is not a wind up. EFL chairman Rick Parry has been covertly filmed saying it's rumoured that the recently installed owners deliberately put the club into admin as part of a fraudulent scheme in relation to money being bet on them to be relegated.

I despair at how football has been ruined by global interests, in the so called bad old days clubs were mainly run by a board of directors whose only interest was that  there  home town club did well, now Sky has come along and in my humble opinion ruined  the game. 

Coates said that the Premier league would improve  the national side, well that ended up well.

It's all greed by the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham, stuff the rest of the football league.

Personally the sooner they sod off and form a European league the better for the rest of us.

Football is bent.  Anyway who thinks otherwise is deluded.  Anything that gets through the amount of cash the top 2 divisions in this country do is awash with corruption.  Top flight football throughout the world is the same.  Just look at how much money agents take from the game and they are all "mates" and connected...  full of crooks and bent.

I can see Wigan escaping the 12 point deduction, god I hope I’m right..

Wigan's owners are Next Leader Fund,who purchased the club last month from IEC,which is fronted by a professional poker player.Both are Hong Kong companies that appear to be linked.The ownership includes a loan of £28.77 m made to Wigan at an interest rate of 8% that could rise to 20% if payments are defaulted.On the loans,nothing  appears to be registered  at Companies House?

This fit and proper testing system doesn't seem to be working?

Wigan loosing 12 points isn't enough for them on the bloatcake.....

 

They NOW saying on there that they want the SAME for Sheff Weds!!....😁😂 

I had quite an exchange of opinion with my best mate over it last night, he's a lardie. 

He was also hoping for Sheffield Wednesday, Birmingham or Derby to be deducted points. 

My reply was if the team with the biggest budget for transfers and wages are wishing ill luck on others to preserve their status then it shows how the mighty have fallen. 

They are literally hoping for anything. They have already been given a possible get out of jail card by the Wigan debacle, how many more do they want !! 

Compare their luck with Wigan to our own misfortune.

Their future depends on 365, but gambling  advertising is becoming unwelcome  in football,  Fair Play is the more likely constraint on a complete clear out. 

Win some lose some,Fosse.At least the owners wont have to  fork out when the ground would have been trashed,again.
