Everton set for further points deduction that could change face of Merseyside football – Ornstein

Posted by

Liverpool fans have our eyes set on the top of the table this season, whilst Everton are worrying once again about going down.

To add insult to injury of the previous points deduction earlier in the campaign, David Ornstein has now reported that things are about to get worse.

Writing for The Athletic, he said: ‘Everton and Nottingham Forest are expecting to be referred to an independent commission over breaches of the Premier League’s profitability and sustainability regulations (PSR)…

‘Under the guidelines both clubs are now at risk of a fine or a points deduction with formal notification of any charges set to come on Monday (15/01).’

Having preformed better this season than the relegation battles that followed poor displays in the previous two campaigns, a double deduction would serious affect chances of survival.

Currently the Blues sit just one point above the drop zone and any further lost points would obviously see them fall deeper into trouble.

It seems that the days of a friendly Merseyside relationship have gone and so there will no doubt be some Reds who revel in this news.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens to our neighbours but this could well be a decision that ultimately ends their status as a top tier club.

Some will be happy, some won’t but it could be a moment that changes the landscape of Merseyside football forever.

  1. As a young lad growing up in Liverpool I really enjoyed the banter between Liverpool and Everton supporters especially in school on Monday mornings. I hope that they stay up. The question is though why are Man City still playing in the Premier League? They should have been kicked out ages ago. Usual weakness from the authorities. Absolutely pathetic to pick on the easy to hurt clubs.

  2. I agree. The city of Liverpool should have two strong EPL teams.
    I remember the 60s when Everton were the most stylish, skillful team in the land. As Liverpool supporter I woul go and watch the blues to see Howard Kendall, Colin Harvey and Allan ball.
    I wish Everton to have great success in their beautiful new stadium.on our waterfront. Obviously I hope we continue to beat them and do better than them but that’s my limit of negativity.

  3. The premier league are leaving themselves wide open if they deduct points of EFC and Forest because if Man city get off with a fine then there will be uproar this will be the third time they have been brought to task and got away with money fines . Everton needed a reality check when the owner came in and spent millions of pounds on players there should have been some one there to have reeled him in and explained FFP but I hope they can be dealt with by the premier league in a reasonable way and not have points deducted again.
