All the best, Lyndon.

Happy Birthday, Lyndon.

I agree with Paul T about the need for the players to keep their heads on Sunday.

I agree with the view that this could be the start of an unravelling of the Premier League in its current form.

I am not as sanguine as the group about the threat of compensation claims from other clubs. If anything it worries me more than the 10-point deduction.

I've always said the Premier League will one day eat itself up. Looks like it's now happening.

I'd be surprised if the Premier League is still going in 5 years… once the Super League starts up.

If clubs start suing and claiming compensation from each other, it will be the end of the Premier League.

John @2,

As I mentioned on another thread on this, it is claimed 777 Partners have very large provisions in the sale agreement for performance, that covers both the cost of relegation and financial compensation.

Hence, assuming the sale agreement has been signed and is legally enforceable, the net effect is that all compensation ends up being paid by Moshiri in the form of a much-reduced price for the club. Which is how it should be.

We just need some re-assurance that the sale agreement is signed and watertight and indeed 777 Partners don't themselves pull out. Then we might be in serious trouble. But not so much otherwise.

Happy birthday, Lyndon.

Let's hope we reward you with 3 points on Sunday.

Happy birthday Lyndon.

Maybe a very simple chant of;

"The Premier League make rules up,
The Premier League is so corrupt."

No swearing for Sky to block out.

Happy Birthday, Lyndon, and may you get all that you want over this coming year.

Let Operation Goodison commence. With all our might. We are not little old Everton, we are loud and very proud.

It seems the UK footballing community has come out in support. Gary Neville has been very vocal. Whatever people think of him, he cares for football and supporters. Something that escapes the corridors of power in the FA and Premier League. His Bury roots and investment in Salford City are testimony to that.

Apart from the victims who got relegated because they didn't achieve enough points. No other reason. Where would the suing stop? Manchester City for gaining an unfair sporting advantage? We simply gambled and failed. There was no advantage to anyone else's failings.

In the UK, it has steadily become more about the product rather than the football for decades. Football is over-analysed rather than the simple beautiful game it is.

The only people who will suffer here are the supporters and potentially employees.

I like to use the phrase I did when planning operations. Think of the second-order consequences before making a decision. Every decision and action has a second and probably third effect.

They have just gone nuclear early with thinking about the knock-on impact. Not just to Everton, but to football in general.
