Everton receive immediate 10-point Premier League deduction for financial rules breach


It seems rather harsh as there must be other clubs doing the same thing but have got away with it, for now anyway.  Hopefully Everton's form will get them out of the relegation zone soon

                                    Liverpool 4     Fulham 3
I've just seen Match of the day 2  on catch up TV  and enjoyed watching attacking football from both sides.   That's how the game should be played
From a personal point of view I'm really happy with the 3 points but I thought that Fulham were unlucky and deserved to come away with at least a point

                                    Man Utd  0     Bournemouth 3
 Erik ten Hag says squad 'not good enough' after defeat by Bournemouth
A bit of a shock for the home fans but Man Utd are still 6th in the league so it may be just a small setback and it's a bit too soon for ten Hag to get that dreaded vote of confidence from the Utd board

                                                          Everton 2  Chelsea 0

Everton have galvanised superbly since their 10-point deduction and are making light work of the sanction, now winning nine of their past 13 games.

Sunday's victory made it three consecutive top-flight wins under Dyche for the first time - they previously achieved the feat in the Covid-affected 2020-21 season under Carlo Ancelotti.

The measure of improvement since Dyche was appointed at the turn of the year is clearly evident, a solid team that is now becoming difficult to beat, much like his tenure at Burnley

Thanks Hugo. It?s great going home & away to the games now,  I?ve always got behind the team but now Dyche has gelled them all and they are playing well to his system.

Have you won the lottery Norman to be able to afford to go to all those games?    Is there a special concession for OAP's       ;D

Manchester United: Sir Jim Ratcliffe agrees deal to buy 25% stake

Ratcliffe has agreed to buy 25% of the club's class B shares, largely held by the Glazer family, who own 69% of the club, and contain almost all the voting rights, and up to 25% of its class A shares, which are listed on the New York Stock Market. The shares are worth $33 per share.

It means the Glazer family will retain a majority stake in the club.

                           Liverpool FC   4   Newcastle United 2
A good start to the year for Liverpool but it's far too early to talk about which team will be the champions because Man City is the team to beat and they have always improved in the second half of the season as Liverpool have found out twice to their cost and Arsenal suffered the same fate last season

It's in the bag for you lot Hugo.

Buy the time Manchester City have been deducted points, on the same scale as Everton, they will be playing in a Sunday League.
You might even be able to watch them if the pitch is still there on the Oval.

It's too soon to say that Mull,   Man City have been on the radar for years now and nothing has been done about them.   I think that it was a bit harsh for Everton to be singled out like they were, It would have been fairer if City and the other clubs were dealt with at the same time

Jordan Henderson: Ajax close to signing England midfielder from Saudi club Al-England midfielder Jordan Henderson is close to joining Ajax in a permanent move, with his contract at Saudi club Al-Ettifaq set to be terminated.

Preparations are being made for his arrival in Amsterdam but no deal has yet been concluded.
The midfielder, 33, signed a three-year contract worth a reported ?700,000 a week with Al-Ettifaq when he left Liverpool in a ?12m deal in July.
However, reports have suggested he is unhappy and wants to return to Europe.

It's like monopoly money and totally obscene but Henderson will have to take a pay cut if he signs for Ajax

Jurgen Klopp to step down as Liverpool manager at end of seasonKlopp was appointed in October 2015 and his contract was due to run until 2026.
He won the Champions League in 2019 before leading Liverpool to their first league title in 30 years in 2019-20.
"I told the club already in November," said Klopp, who has announced his decision with his side top of the Premier League.
"I can understand that it's a shock for a lot of people in this moment, when you hear it for the first time, but obviously I can explain it - or at least try to explain it.
"I love absolutely everything about this club, I love everything about the city, I love everything about our supporters, I love the team, I love the staff. I love everything. But that I still take this decision shows you that I am convinced it is the one I have to take.
