 Be ironic if we ever failed the EFL's Fit and Proper Test

 Has anyone actually ever failed the EFL's 'fit and proper test' and if they have how bad must they have been to fail it?

 Just seen the latest EFL statement on Bury and it doesn't look good. This is exactly why we have to stay fan owned and keep within budget even if it does cost us progress up the league. You just cannot trust the EFL to scrutinise potential owners all they promised to.

Sobering ahead of the weekend fixture.
 OI, as long as the levy was in the EU style and we could be treated like Greece or Poland. Sunderland & Portsmouth to pay like Germany & France.

 Looking like we'll hit £1.8m in next 24 hours. Now 3,069 investors 😁

 The passion we should against Palace that day was do or die. Jones bullet header and Gayle finish we went nuts and so did the players. Passion that is! Wasn’t really a proper derby either😂 we ain’t got any of that in the side now. Ok I know it was 20 years ago but we are like shrinking violets now

 All the clubs should bill the EFL for lost revenues which the EFL would fund by having a levy on all League 1 teams.

 Anyone driving up to a Sunderland there was a major accident on the A1M junction 35, it’s been closed all day, air ambulance was there when we got there, so could be very nasty. Still looks solid now.

 Bill the efl on average match incomes lost...

Having the fit and proper financial processes in place could justify their negligence has been down to their inactivity and as such they have caused a shortfall in expected revenue.
 ...so get the fans into the ground to hopefully spend some money once they are there. Any ancillary revenue is better than none at all. Bar sales might actually go up. No reason the fundays cannot be sponsored (estate agents?) although I guess the revenue may be lower than matchday sponsorship.

Just thinking ahead.
 Farnham - I did think about that when I posted. Ultimately, that just shows that we are all hypocritical. While I was pleased that we were able to get out of the rules by bringing in legal support, I don't think that i would have been happy had i been a supporter of another side. I agree that the penalty was excessive and I am glad that we got out of it, but that is purely a selfish reaction (ie I care about us not about being fair to everyone else) and if the rules had ultimately been enforced on us we wouldn't have had any real cause for complaint.

 Naz, we also lose a lot of matchday revenue ergo bar sales, pay on day home and away fans, merchandising and sponsorship. Quite a hit I would say

 Somewhat ironic seeing our fans saying the rules should be applied when we had a collective meltdown when the late Mr Turvey applied the Ryman League rules back in the day.

 If Bury and/or Bolton are kicked out, I doubt if any season ticket holder would be expecting a refund for our cancelled home game(s), but maybe it would be an opportunity for the club to organise some sort of free entry family fun day(s) including meet the players etc. Bolton H is 7th March, Bury H is 4th April.

Which was the final match of the season that didn’t take place a few years back? Chester?
 Cw. He’s 20 with naff all experience. Play to his strengths so we don’t concede. Not fussed for us being his development: he can go back to them in May with 35 games under his belt without us thinking well he was schite at crosses until March but he’s improved(having cost us 20 goals in the process).

I won't be holding my breath.
 Lee that’s my point you may not be seeing it at academy level but we’re seeing exactly that, pushing, jostling, should charges, high feet studs first, sliding in after claimed the ball. He’s had a few scuffles and has even ended up stamping on a player who was repeatedly kicking at him. This is basically conference level and local level sides.

 Lurker, my son is also a keeper and plays academy level. You do not see a lot of keeper getting pushed about at youth level, putting players on keeper is different to roughing them up

 The ridiculous thing though on that is that the deduction should be automatic, not something for the EFL to decide whether they apply or not - discretionary rules are just a recipe for favouritism

 OI - 3 points for last game of last season plus 3 for Tuesday night = six to deduct for Bolton already, if EFL consistently apply their rules.
