    It’s all over Twitter via the owner of Peterbro.
    It’s very strange that Cook has gone the day after the appeal. Believe you me, admin do not give away things lol

    Why would the Peterborough owner know before anybody else?

    We might win the appeal, but the Peterborough owner hasn’t said we have. Or not that I have seen, or not that cupwinners has linked to.

    I really don’t think we’ll win the appeal if I’m honest. Or if we do we’ll probably get 1 point back.

    Peterborough owner has been very supportive of Latics and the treatment by the EFL.

    Now then, young Adam Egg; the way I see it is this: our appeal was based upon the Pandemic and thus the Force Majeure claim. If this has now been substantiated by the Chinese owner and we lose our case, then any future FM Covid claim by any club during this crisis will have to be knocked back as well; which really makes it pointless having a Force Majeure clause in the first instance. We could well see an epidemic of clubs in real difficulty through no fault of there own making. I think that a reduced points deduction is a realistic outcome that shows that penalty has been applied, but with a measure of leniency given the circumstances. That way, it doesn’t set the precedent that Covid cannot be considered in an FM claim.

    Don’t forget; we can always appeal against the verdict (in a normal legal challenge); but how much would that cost :unsure: :unsure: :unsure:

    Very true, BUT, I think everything that has come out since proves that our administration has very little to do with covid regardless of what au yeung says.
