So the premier league managed to charge Everton in March this year and then give them a 10 point deduction (still haven’t told Everton how they came to 10 points) 8 months later, yet Man City who got charged in February for over 100 financial breaches won’t have a trial begin (BEGIN!!) until Autumn next year!

Add the latest story about the premier league brushing over players and managers still allowed to work while under investigation for sexual abuse/under age sex and it really does leave a very bad taste in the mouth.
The trouble for the prem is the scale of this, if they find Man City guilty they have to hammer them (relegation and massive fine) but if they do that they need an absolute watertight case else they are being sued to oblivion. Everton on the other hand will probably stay up and let it go with nothing more than having a chip on the shoulder about it, the prem got lucky with how bad the promoted teams are this year, ten points sounds harsh but its survivable.
Personally I look forward to the case, its going to be a shitshow.
