To enter administration.... first of many I think

Key question is how they're all treated.

Easiest thing would be to forego the points deductions etc on the basis that these are exceptional times.

But that effectively punishes well-run clubs like Tranmere who don't live close to the edge all the time. When you're constantly on the brink, any crisis pushes you over.

I wouldn't be surprised to see another self-interested mass club vote to suspend administration penalties, thereby allowing the weaker clubs to massage their financial situations without the appropriate footballing costs.

Being reported that EFL has said if they finish bottom 3 the 12 point deduction will be carried over to next season, but if they finish outside bottom 3 the 12 point deduction is this season.

I’m sure they will survive, entering administration will clear some of the debt to allow a buyer to be found, so League 1 for Wigan next season not a bad move for them really given the size of the club.

Can't see why. No negative impact on Huddersfield. Might even save them.

Apologies, I misread something earlier. So you’re right, it would favour Huddersfield 👍

or Stoke if they end up in the bottom 3. Wigan just beat them 3-0 with Bury-styled players they cannot afford. Doesnt that = cheating?

It could be argued that they could afford it before lockdown. Current circumstances make it hard assume that financial struggle equals profligacy. Many we'll run organisations are in serious trouble

old railway sleepers as terraces. I stood on them in 1967/8fa cup replay in the snow. Big crowd about 12000+.health and safety wouldn't have allowed it on .

I went to Springfield Park around 1970 and stood on that bank. It had more grass on it than the pitch which was a sea of mud.
