Everton's points deduction stinks of hypocrisy
It is clear that the Premier League have sought to make an example of Everton by handing the club an unprecedented points deduction for their financial breaches.
While the Blues have admitted breaching the rules, the lack of fines for the six clubs that attempted to breakaway from the Premier League relatively recently - plus receiving a heavier punishment than Portsmouth did for entering administration in 2010 - has left a bitter taste in the mouth, as our Everton correspondent Joe Thomas explains:
The word integrity is mentioned three times in the 41-page report that outlines the reasoning behind Everton’s brutal 10 point deduction.
It could feature dozens more times, highlighted in bold, underlined, italicised or written in capital letters and Blues inside and outside the club would still scoff at every mention.
Few would believe those preaching for the protection of the game had a true understanding of the word. Their frustration and anger is understandable.
Six clubs tried to break away from the competition. Another club went into administration. Yet now is the time a regulatory body decides to bare teeth to this level of severity. Where is the fairness? Where is the consistency?
