Owls Escape Points Deduction

Wednesday have today escaped any possible points deduction by the Football Association (FA) for including too many loan players in their squad for the clash with Stoke City.

There were fears that the Owls could have been slapped with a points decution for including a loan player too many in their squad for the 1-1 clash with Stoke City last month.

But the FA have instead decided against a points deduction, opting to stick with the precedent set when Leeds United came under a similar breaking of the rules, and fining the Owls 2,000.

Graham Kavanagh, Enoch Showunmi, Adam Bolder, Franck Songo'o, Ben Sahar and Bartosz Slusarski were all included in the squad - but only four actually took to the field during the clash with the then table-toppers.

The FA is set to inform all of its member clubs and make the decision public before the weekend matches.

And Wednesday won't be making the same mistake again this season, with only five loan players on their books after striker Enoch Showunmi ended his unsuccessful loan stint at S6 by returning to Bristol City.

home from school already pigforlife? crikey you lot finish early these days
johnnywalker69
If Barnsley got a 2k fine for it and you got relegated, would you not have any problems at all that they hadn't had points deducted? Not just saying it because of the West Ham lot last year (which we were clinging on to for too long) but just because it's all well and good being on the receiving end, but what if another team suffers because you broke the rules? If it was us i'd be saying the same, but in reality it's quite a let off.
shepsblade
not all 6 players played though shepsblade, so the result wasnt influenced by the rule break
johnnywalker69
plus leeds did the same thing in 06 n got fined 1k so we've actually been hard done by!! tevez is still a legend!!!
FUTURES BLUE N WHITE
jealous what of you finishing play group tol monday pigforlife. TEVEZ IS A HERO
mick66owl
fair point shepsblade (apart from the let off remark reckon its set by the precedent at leeds and they didnt all play so the game wasnt affected) gotta say im made up been wondering about this for far to long, really dont understand how the FA can drag there feet over something like this, surely they could have reached a decision before now. at least they came to the right one.
owler

johnnywalker69
Mickey mouse trophy, whoopey do. Living off the past as always, your a shabby club with a shabby ground with shabby fans. A bunch of scabs having to loan players to survive. How sad. You cheapskates. I hope you go bankcrupt, football would be better off without crap clubs like yours. Cheating against Stoke.
sharpblades
That's just one of the trophies that we've won bluntpig, guess you're calling it the mickey mouse cup 'cos you lot have never won it! Aww bless! I guess winning the league is a mickey mouse trophy aswell 'cos you've only won that once!... aww, like i said, come back when you've won more than us
johnnywalker69
