What's going to happen with QPR and the potential football league fine? £58.6M wasn't it?
I'd say the worst punishment they could get is a 20- odd point deduction, or another relegation, if they don't pay up.Pay up or be thrown out of the Football League was the threat. Ultimately, that won't happen if they don't pay up.
That's what I was getting at Rammy. After all the bluster from the Football League earlier this season, they have to be seen to do something or everyone will have licence to flout the FFP rules. That's how I see it anyway.Pay up or be thrown out of the Football League was the threat. Ultimately, that won't happen if they don't pay up.
A compromise fine and transfer embargo I'd imagine.
1. Last season1. When was the fine issued?
2. And what's it for?
I can see them in deep financial trouble though - they have some huge earners, and they're going to have to offload many Premier League players on Premier League wages that they have.
I agree with you but this is much bigger isn't it? for me, this shows just how dominant the FA / Prem is. The FL HAVE to save face here or pack it in as they would be cowering to the FA.They need to enforce it or they set a dangerous precedent, however it wouldn't be the first time considering what happened with West Ham and the FA Cup.
I'm saying nothing on this point.Surely the FL have to make a stand here or they will look like total arses??
20 point deduction and a 40m fine, seeing as they've been trying their best to weasel out of it.QPR will not be relegated to the Conference - it will create allsorts of turmoil, especially with the AGM only 1 month away. It would probably mean Cheltenham would stay up, as would the last relegated side in every division.
Would Championship fans prefer a 20 point deduction or a £40m fine?
As I said before, the Conference are under no obligation to accept them. Perhaps they could end up in some footballing twilight netherworld?
