I have no reason to doubt him, my information is 3rd hand information but he was at Steve Gibson's wedding so I I would say it's pretty accurate.

I am asking for more information but he's limited to what he can say atm but like Lurker said in earlier post that it's a very complex situation.

I wasn't informed regarding selling the club like Lurker was so maybe he could give more information to that.

I don’t know much more than what I’ve said. 
 

Basically, they’re up for more than breaking the FFP rules. 
It’s the price of the stadium (same as others)

Date of Sale 

Date of purchasing company’s incorporation

Financing of the purchase. 
 

The final 3 have resulted in a greater penalty than what others have/will get if found guilty.

Funny that a Rick Parry legal case could save our season

Fingers crossed... as we certainly don't look like playing ourselves out of trouble.

Apparently Gibson has now got the majority of the backing of league's chairman in his case against suing the EFL regarding breaking of the FFP regulations.

I can't see how this can be ignored and it may have a reason on why the EFL are looking into the possibility of introducing a salary cap across the board (Finally!)

Wow. Sounds like some big chanhges forthcoming. It'll be interesting to see the Wedensday penalty and when the news will break. Currently I'm the itk guy on a Danish football forum. Hilarious🤣

How 'typical Boro' will it be when both Wednesday and Wigan take massive point deductions, yet we still finish in the bottom 3 😕

I reckon we should start campaigning for Boro to have a points addition.

On the grounds that we're rubbish so the games haven't been fair.

Had a complete change of mind we will be ok due to the mess others have got themselves into and that we are about to go on a five game unbeaten run.

My time machine recently finished allowed me to go into the future and I am pleased to report that all will be well.

I will not allow myself to tell you how next season finished

Will you at least confirm we score another goal? Or is 5 0-0 draws enough to save us?

Just been reading on the sheff wed forum, they seem to think they won't be given a points deduction until they are safe from relegation and then given a small deduction that still keeps them up. If they are given a deduction that sees them in the bottom and relegated they will appeal the punishment and that could continue for months to come meaning the league cannot arrange the next seasons fixtures

They also dislike Gibbo for obvious reasons and would love to relegate us on the last day of the season.

Four draws from our last four games got us promoted a few seasons ago. Maybe four draws will keep us up this year? (Four draws plus massive points deductions for all the naughty clubs).

Honestly can't understand the attitude of backing their owners when they've blatantly cheated.

I'd be embarassed.

The point of bringing the hearing forward is to give them the deduction during the season. 

Either way there'll be an appeal. The deduction will be greater than 9 points for the reasons I've said above. 

The reason why they're saying all that is that's what they're hoping happens.

HaHa. No matter what if any punishment, the appeal to prevent next season fromstarting sounds a bit like blackmail to me. Good luck to them with that.

    • In the newspaper report  for this game the Boro team is given as:   Williams, Woodham, Jones, Stiles. Spraggon, Boam, Downing, Mills, Hickton, Vincent, Laidlaw.  Subs - Gates, McMordie, Stone. Williams and Woodham mean nothing to me. I assume that Williams is a misprint and that it was actually Whigham (especially as David Mills is also referred to as Hills) but does anyone remember Woodham?   Hibs' team was - Price, Brownlie, McKewan, Stanton, Black. Blackley, Stevenson, Hamilton, Baker, Cropley, Duncan.  Subs - Pringle, O'Rourke, Graham. A future Boro player in there!
    • (Apologies to Erimus for referencing matches he's previously referred to - we haven't played on 7 August very often!) August 7th 1971 Boro 4 Hibernian 2  (Yes, Erimus - Hibs again!) Boro looked in fine fettle a week ahead of the 1971/72 season as they swept aside Hibernian more comfortably than the scoreline suggests. New signings Stuart Boam and Nobby Stiles appeared to be settling in well. Boam bought more presence to the defence, albeit looking hesitant at times, while Stiles used his experience to control the game from the middle of the park before coming off at half time. He said that he had done so partly to give someone else a run out and partly to have a look at the team from a trainer's perspective and that having done so he had a feeling that it wouldn't be too long before he was playing at Old Trafford again. As it turned out, he was right, but only because Boro drew Manchester United in the FA Cup later in the season. Against Hibs, Boro were 4-0 up by the interval as Hibs' young goalkeeper, who was only playing because their new first choice keeper's international clearance papers hadn't arrived, was regularly left stranded by his statuesque defence. John Hickton helped himself to a hat trick and Joe Laidlaw chipped in with another. Hickton got the first after just two minutes with a glancing header from a free kick from wide on the left. It was 2-0 after five minutes after a goalmouth mix up allowed Laidlaw to score off the post. Laidlaw turned provider after 20 minutes, crossing from the right for Hickton to head home, and Big John completed his hat trick on 35 minutes with another simple header. Boro relaxed in the second half, allowing Hibs to make the score more respectable with two quick headed goals of their own. The first came from Joe Baker after 52 minutes, with second half substitute Hazel adding the second on 58 minutes. All in all though, a good performance by Boro. They now had a midweek friendly with Benfica to look forward to (which famously brought back together Stiles and Eusebio) and then it was all set for the opening league fixture at Portsmouth. (This is Boro we're talking about - you know what happened next).   In the news - 2800 shipyard workers at Swan Hunter voted by just 45 votes to remain on strike after the latest pay offer fell 25p a week below their demands, two brothers were rescued off the North Sea coast after cutting the roof off their van and paddling out to sea on it (yes, really), the crew of Apollo 15 splashed down safely in the Pacific and three soldiers were shot during rioting in Belfast. Top of the charts - Get it On by T Rex.
    • No my friend you have voluteered and your name is on the list, I appreciated the efforts made last time out
    • Downsouth, only if you run out of volunteers 👍
    • So I guess that must mean we will win the Carling Cup and get to the final of the FA Cup as well! Big dreams Sonni, can I have what you are on?
