EFL fixtures out this morning. Burnley have Huddersfield away first up on 29 July, and first four home fixtures are Luton, Hull, Blackpool and Millwall. Makes me shudder just thinking about it. That was so nearly us, and should have been Everton, if the Prem had applied its financial rules properly.

Thought exactly the same Clu, although was heartened to read Leeds still part of the civil case with Burnley which calls for independent auditors to review and hopefully overturn Everton’s obvious overspend.

Didn’t have much hope in the hierarchy of the EPL allowing the sports washing with the Newcastle take over, but once again money is not the key objective for those at the top of the EPL, it’s the ONLY objective.

Roles reversed you think EPL would have permitted such flagrant breaches if it was Burnley or ourselves overspending and Everton relegated?

The saddest part is, it’s become so systemic of the EPL ways of working that we’ve all become so used to these things continually happening.

Indeed Class, suspect EPL would have been crawling all over our or Burnley’s finances if either of us had tried to get away with such huge losses and it had been Everton for the drop. And you can be pretty certain they’d have ensured the investigation and any hearings were done and dusted in time to impose a points deduction before the season’s conclusion, so as to safeguard beloved Everton’s Prem status.

Class and Club

If its so black and white that Everton have transgressed FFP rules how on earth will EPL cover it up then?

What has happened then to Burnleys " civil case '?

Yes! Relief all round the Leeds not having EFL fixtures this season. BUT have. Radz and Co learnt at all from their glaring mistakes and very lucky escape last season in windows? . / this window will reveal all . I am beginning to have serious doubts.

Cluey According to Baz, you must amend your name to Clubless. ?.

23 Jun 2022 13:29:44
Baz Why the doubts? We're seemingly attempting to turn Raph into CDK and Gakpo. Attracting a top 6 EPL standard player to a team who finished 17th last season won't be easy. Give board a chance. They've learned in George opinion.

23 Jun 2022 13:37:30
So it would see.

23 Jun 2022 13:48:21
Hope your optimism proved correct George, time will tell

But just for starters very unwise that Orta and Co apparently NOT looking for another LB, we only have one . and that's you know who

And they are almost equally unwisely NOT looking for an experienced gk. we need better than Klaessen and even Meslier . Oh for a Nick Pope type levels better than both.

Baz - I recall various folk far more expert on finances that I, or probably anyone on here, commenting in the media that Everton’s assertions re cost of c.v. etc would not appear to stand up to serious scrutiny, and that the decision of Leeds and Burnley to seek legal redress should the Prem fail to properly investigate the concerns is understandable. Both Radz and the 49ers are serious business folk, and would be unlikely to commit to legal action if they didn’t strongly believe their was a case to answer - particularly given they are apparently pressing ahead despite Prem survival.

On what grounds are you beginning to have serious doubts that lessons have been learnt?

23 Jun 2022 14:11:20
Baz is once again ( Martyn ) getting bermoo4.
Stop laying blame. We in prem. Let’s see what happens.
If they don’t learn by their mistakes then they lose millions and we get relegated.
We support Leeds thick and thin so who does it hurt more?

23 Jun 2022 14:47:31
Clu yep fair comments re Everton FFP transgressions.

Re other point. time will tell of course re the window . we certainly need more goalscoring players

. but see my above reply re doubts
ie such as vital upgrades required at GK LB which regrettably look very unlikely to happen.

Aus yes we will see what happens . hopefully no repeat of last season. that's all Aus!

Lampard told players will have to be sold before financing any new incomings, hardly a surprise that!
Such a blatant abuse of the FFP rules but excused by cv and various other excuses.

I think Leeds have acted quickly in the transfer market and I have no real complaints so far, it is obvious that we are not going to spend 40/ 50 Mil on a top quality player and no one should be deluded with that thought. I do believe there will be another 2 to 3 more signings for positions that are considered weak.

I am now beginning to think that Raph will not be sold in this window, more likely in January. However I do feel there is more of a chance that a considerable sized offer will come in for Phillips.

I hope that a LB and striker are positions that are being considered right now.

23 Jun 2022 20:04:24
Let's get on wi signing mohamed camara and Tyler Adams regardless of where rapphy n Philips end up we don't mis out on these boys come rads.
