Owls Break Loan Rules

Wednesday could be set for a punishment from the Football League after breaking rules in the 1-1 clash with Stoke City by fielding too many loan players.

The Owls included six loan players in their squad for the home clash with the Potters, but are only allowed to include five under league rules.

And they could be set for punishment as big as a points deduction for breaking the rules, although a cash fine is the more likely outcome.

Promotion-hopefuls Stoke have demanded an investigation in light of Franck Songo'o's, one of the loan players in question, leveller in the second half to give Wednesday a much-needed point in the battle against the drop.

Ben Sahar (Chelsea) and Graham Kavanagh (Sunderland) also started the clash while Enoch Showunmi (Bristol City), Adam Bolder (QPR) and new-boy Bartosz Slusarski (West Brom) were also included on the Owls' bench.

wendy are fine, they didnt break the rules as the players mentioned were brought into the club as emergency loan deals not just normal loan deals. come on do you think wendy would honnestly not know the crack here with so much at stake.

Scummy Leeds were charged with exactly the same offence and received a 1000 fine. So we should get a 500 fine ,thats how the league usually works if you listen to mardy Leeds scum

I think we'll just get away with a fine and a slap on the wrists, as all 6 loan players didnt actually play. If they all played some part in the match and therefore influenced the game, we'd probably be looking at a points deduction, or would be forced to replay the match

How many reasons did Brian need to not have included Enoch int he squad. Waste of space, glad he's gone!

That goal could cost Stoke promotion (and 60million plus). A point deduction or a replay is the only fair outcome!

I hope it doesn't come to this, but I'd be up for a replay over a point deduction. We weren't on our best form Saturday. We could surely beat them on another day.

jonnyblade it didnt cost Stoke anything, as we didnt play all 6 loan players, only 4 played, 2 stayed on the bench, so we didnt gain an unfair advantage

The punishment will mirror similar offences by other clubs, (if it has indeed happened before) anything less or harsher would be unfair..!

We obviously need a Loan Arranger because this is completely Tonto!

This is bloody typical. I'm a huge fan of Lawsy but he should've known a rule like that. Let's hope they don't come down on us like a ton of bricks, we've got enough of a job on our hands as it is.
