Maybe, although with Wigan last year the Administration penalty was only applied when they stayed up. Had they been relegated without it the penalty would have been applied this year. The administration penalty also doesn't offset the 9 point agreement they were apparently close to for breaking FFP. So still potentially 21 points, with 12 of them applied when it will affect them most.

The 12 point deduction is this season.

It's only if you go in to administration from March onwards that they count it for the season after if you're going down anyway.

Their is a fascinating article about the Boro in today’s Athletic... Nine championship games in 29 days.  Following a team in their maddest run ever.    Neil Warnock was on the pit

Centuries ago Villages had ducking stools whereby if the person drowned they were innocent and if they lived they were guilty and sentenced to death. Nowadays not much has changed sadly. Idiots postin

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I probably shouldn’t have made things public, but I was at as very low ebb. It’s been a difficult year, not made better by COVID. Lockdown bucket lists aren’t

Not sure what this will achieve, but don't blame them for trying

I think it's pretty obvious Derby were ducking and diving last season by using every delaying tactic they could with the EFL. Wycombe lost their Championship place because they played with a straight bat while others cheated.

Derby fans won't have been aware of every detail but they are not stupid and surely knew a Rabbit was off and big style. When we were spun the Golden Thread yarn a while back some gullible fans lapped it all up but the majority could see straight through the cost cutting, budget bullshine.

Think the thing that gets me the most is that the person most responsible will probably be the one who won't really lose out as much as he should.. whilst the Wycombes of this world are just met with a shrug of the shoulders. Now it looks like the line is "you are kicking us while we are down, you big bullies" and they seem to think that the louder they bleat, the smaller the penalty. Not sure anyone will want to make a quick deal for a club that doesn't own its ground, but then again, sometimes things don't work out the way you think they will

Mel Morris still owns the stadium so I image a deal will be struck with the new owners.

would be nice if he didn't profit from it, although that is probably too much to ask.

We were skirting the realms of it so don't gloat just yet. I think we are ok but there was concern before the window opened this season.

Was there? Seems strange for us to be looking at spending over £10m (Muniz + Payero) just in fees if we were anywhere near it.

They get to appeal it just like Derby have, I doubt points will be deducted any time soon.

If they agree to the decision, as the article states, they forfeit any right to appeal.

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
