    Nah, they're done for. They've put themselves into administration so it's 12pts deduction, nothing to discuss. They are still negotiating a punishment for previous financial nonsense so whatever that outcome is will get added to the 12pts.
    9 points?

    Didn't he use the Stadium as the collateral on a 20m loan from an Americas hedge fund?

    If they had beaten us at Wembley perhaps we wouldn't have got into the mess we did.

    Be interesting to watch how Rams extricate themselves from that phoney ground sale nonsense they indulged in. Obviously any potential buyer will want the club AND stadium in the deal but I suspect Mel Morris pee'd on his chips with his smoke and mirrors stadium accounting and now he's deep in do-do holding a grossly overvalued stadium to get rid of.

    Looks like reading are about to get 9 points deducted aswell. They have a wage bill of 40m per year which is absolutely astonishing. It's not like they are running away with the league. Trying to buy success. We all know how that tends to go!!

    I assume they come off immediately until any appeal is heard. If they appeal.

    Feel for Wycombe and hopefully they can come straight back up

    What's a "Bury" then? They cheated and overspent and got promoted at the expense of clubs who played with a straight bat.

Nobody wanted to buy them or rescue them - why would anyone be interested in buying a septic club with barely 1.5K fans attending games???? There are dozens of properly run clubs that are 10x bigger than Bury in the 5th tier or below, why should they have to watch Bury sitting smugly cheating at top table - it doesn't make sense.

    I suspect most of these cheating crooked clubs hope that sentimental dewy eyed simps will rally round and not allow the clubs to fail, even when the club is guilty of systematic gross mismanagement and blatant cheating.

    It's open for a Bury phoenix club to rejoin the pyramid at a bottom tier and I believe that's happened, that sounds fair enough to me.

    In truth, whilst I feel for the fans, cannot really disagree with the above.

    Years ago, Luton were also heavily punished for 'financial cheating' and to all intense and purposes were relegated out of the Football League. I think that many of the Luton fanbase believe a similar fate for Derby would be justice.

    I have some sympathy for Wycombe, but in all honesty the 'promotion' they won (whilst in 7th place with games in hand) was very unfair on Peterboro and other clubs when the League 1 season was abandoned and many would say justice was served with their relegation.

    QPR got caught 'cheating' the Financial (un)Fair Play rules and the punishment served has been the financial restraints that have seen us spend 6 more seasons - and counting -in the Championship. Struggling in the bottom 10 for most of those.

    Feel bad for Wycombe honestly, should have been sent down straight away. Cheated for ages now, time for them to get their comeuppance!
