The fact that Power is prepared to throw everyone and the club under the bus shows we are in for a rough few months.Ideally we sell the club now and the FA deal with them separately and give us a fine.

That would be nice

There wouldn't be much point in punishing the club as Power is clearly off soon. It would be the next incumbent that will suffer, not the person who's actually responsible. Not that that would stop the FA.

I know nothing about corporate law and fa about FA regulations.

Does anyone more knowledgeable however think the club may have a counter claim against Power for any losses arising from Power acting in breach of his fiduciary duty to the club, in particular for acting outside of its constitution?

This would be looking many steps ahead and may be something for a future owner to consider.  I am doubtful it would have any relevance on the FAs ability to punish the club.

It may not be the white knight in shining armour but I am hopeful that we, the supporters, will be in a much better position for the existence of the Trust.

I actually laughed when I seen this yesterday, it’s just another fuck up.

In other news Adam Wainwright had apparently left the club which is a shame.

He loaned the club £6m!   So yes the club benefitted on the pitch by being able to fund a team beyond it otherwise could have done.


The results this season suggest otherwise  Smiley

Indeed, the precedents aren't encouraging. A Luton fan pointed out to me last night that they were deducted 10 points when the new board came clean about underhand dealings by the old board. Punished for being honest. That was nearly 15 years ago though so maybe there has been an outbreak of common sense in the FA since (clutches desperately at straws)

He left a couple of months ago - but this debarcle also shows why so many others have got out of dodge as soon as possible, Wellens/Seamus Brady (allegedly)/Ben Chorley (yesterday)/Mark Isaccs and Adam & Kay Wainwright - I am sure there are many others..  The writing has obviously been on the wall internally for quite a while

It's probably self-preservation, but I have absolutely no expectation of the club going unpunished if anything is proven. There are a lot of precedents for clubs being punished for having bad owners, as you say.

Yet, the EFL and FA sanction these bad owners to take charge of clubs.

It is interesting, though, that the club and Power have been charged separately - presumably so any punishments can be ‘tailored’.

We have a very good track record with the footballing authorities. I would, therefore, expect a very lenient punishment as normal

Almost certainly just a polite repremand not to do it again.

I imagine its mainly stop clubs being 'sold' to avoid punishment, be interesting to see Clems thoughts on this matter, especially as Powers actions have the potential to make his £1.5m investment worth the square root of fuck all.

Still think something fairly fundamental has happened in the court proceedings for the FA to have taken action that could so obviously prejudice the case.
