    Just seen it reported that Brum have been deducted 9 points for FFP irregularities, pending appeal.

    One down, only another 16 to go and we'll be top of the league. It's one way to win I guess.

    Just 9 points and no fines. Unless they totally **** up in the last few games, they won't go down. Seems like they got away with it.

    Seriously though, another club recently manager by Harry Redknapp and left saddled with massive wages and in financial trouble. Another club that Harry can move on from, forget about and move on to his next pay check. Another club where the fans will suffer from not seeing top players bought in, and the fans will possibly have to watch their beloved club get relegated to the third tier, all the while those really responsible get off scot-free. Something is not right there for me.

    If we'd been given 9 points we would not have been promoted and missed out on many millions hence the £40m fine I suppose.

    Can't claim to understand it. Does anyone really get it?

    That's some money pit in the West Midlands - Brum, Villa and Wolves all with massive losses

    Exactly. Let's add Portsmouth and Southampton from the pre-FFP days both of whom almost went out of business. The next move by the authorities should be to tighten up on the owners and managers to force them to act responsibly in their club's dealings

    Don't forget that Bournemouth entered administration following his management & West Ham only narrowly avoided it.

    He's managed seven clubs & six of those had major financial difficulties soon after he left them.

    Not defending Redknapp, but the boards & owners of the clubs that he has managed didn’t have to write out & sign the cheques he requested.

    He hypnotised all those owners with his highly alluring dance of the seven jockstraps

    A nine point deduction is no punishment at all.
    The people making these decisions are senile.
    What about Villa. Forest etc.?

    I totally agree. The FA should impose a ban on the likes of Redknapp from managing clubs for a period where managers/DOF’s are found to have agreed contracts beyond the financial means of the club.

    Perhaps QPR & Birmingham should club together and sue Redknapp for damages on the grounds of professional negligence/incompetence.

    We need a significant deterrent before the whole thing becomes widespread and clubs end up in administration due to mis-management.

    Precisely, very well said.

    The FFA should go directly to the source and fine the old codger for bringing the game into disrepute.
    Anybody in a professional role has a 'duty of care' to act in the best interest of their chosen field. Harry has a track record of proving otherwise.
