EFL Transfer Embargo

I was going to comment of the Chef Wendy thread, but why was their transfer embargo secret? If they are being punished for a rule violation, why wasn’t this announced.

A quick search also pulls up an announcement from Birmingham along the same lines. An FFP violation resulted in an embargo that was not announced by the EFL.

A search of the EFL website shows nothing about either of these,

Anyone have any idea why they try to keep these quiet?

  • No idea for sure but the thought occurs that if so called 'fit and proper' owners have transgressed then it reflects badly on an EFL who vetted them.

    Not something to advertise perhaps.

    One of the reason, Sheff Wednesday owner picked Meire, she’s proved that she will carry out unpopular decisions. The wendies owner has talked about cutting costs for a while.
  • another EFL gem...........cover up wrong doings & even their sanctions, but investigate an owner for buying his players a burger after a game.

    they are a fecking joke.
  • Undisclosed.
  • Embargo lifted with immediate effect.
    • Championship facing 'financial armageddon' after TEN clubs were placed under a transfer embargo last month... with the Covid-19 pandemic set to impact the sales of players to Premier League teams this summer
    • Ten Championship clubs have been placed under a transfer embargo 
    The clubs in question were Birmingham City, Blackburn Rovers, Cardiff City, Coventry City, Derby County, Huddersfield Town, Luton Town, Reading, Sheffield Wednesday and Stoke City.

  • Football is breaking.
  • Wonder if there are any teams below the Championship that are equally under an embargo?

    Championship facing 'Financial Armageddon'? 

    Shouldn't that be, 'some Championship clubs might get less for the players they are planning to sell than they might have got had they sold them before the pandemic, while some Championship clubs will be prevented from signing new players'.  

    I get the impression that the Mail Online has seen one bit of information (ten clubs getting a transfer embargo) and conflated it with a different assumption (that the Premier League will not spend as much as they have in the past on new signings).

    I suppose wild exaggeration is a step up from plain old lying?  :D

    10 clubs (nearly half) in the Championship having restrictions/limitations put on their transfer business is going to have fairly wide ranging effects though. Mostly downward rather than up and probably not for the better.

    At least Birmingham City's manager has relevant experience...
    Loved to have been around when the news was broken to Mr Bowyer, can you imagine the response....
    "oh for F*cks sake not again :s
  • How are Stoke on the list? Their owners are amongst the richest people in the country.

    Has @bobmunro been fiddling the books or something?
  • edited April 6
    Most of the clubs listed are fairly average or bottom half sides. How many players at those 10 clubs are being hunted by premier league sides?

    I can't imagine top flight sides are queueing up to buy Luton and Coventry players. Article seems a bit over the top.

    I don't doubt that ten clubs being unable to sign new players will have a downward effect on some other clubs' income. But, how many signings were those ten clubs going to make from other Championship clubs, for fees?  I imagine it wouldn't be many.  No club - as far as I can see - is being prevented from selling players.  So calling this 'financial Armageddon' seems to surpass the truth. Considerably.

    Many of these sanctions appear to be only administrative breaches of regulations that the EFL didn't realign with the Government's relaxations of filing rules.  They broke the rules, but not the law.  And it has nothing to do with how much money the owners may have.

    If you read the article, their penalty was for an admin mistake, and will soon be corrected, ditto Huddersfield. Luton and Coventry's issues sound pretty minor as well

    But if they can't buy, they may be reluctant to sell. I'm not thinking so much of other Championship clubs but clubs like ourselves. If we hoped to sign fringe or youth players with the idea of developing them as we (hopefully) get promoted something like this could be a blow.

  • I find it amazing that more clubs haven't gone into administration over the past year. No fans yet player wages are still being paid in full. 
  • "Up to 10 clubs under threat of having some transfer restrictions imposed on them by EFL in the next window"
    that story's not quite so impactful is it?
    but this is the preposterous soft porn peddling swivel eyed bigot sheet with no regard for the truth on matters of any real importance
    simply not an organ of record on anything
    Add to that the compliant gutless muppets at EFL and this ain't going to have any discernible effect
    A few clubs might be restricted to not adding to their squad numbers and/or increasing their reported wage budget for 21/22 over their reported figures for 20/21.  A very few players might be available for slightly more reasonable transfer fees if any EFL clubs are in positions to enhance their squads.
    Given the financial situation all EFL clubs are in compared to 12 months ago, transfer and wage spending will inevitably be (relatively) depressed for a window or 2.
    Looking in from out here, it will be impossible to know anything tangible but Charlton could be one club in a slightly better position this summer than last.  That of course is more to do with having an outwardly stable & resourced ownership than possible fire sales at a number of championship clubs that are now reaping the rewards of years of reckless/rule-breaking overspending.

    They need to have a word with the prat Farnell, he is an expert with that sort of thing B)
  • Isn’t this a non-story? 

    The EFL didn’t follow the government extension and the embargo will be lifted once the accounts are filed

    Which , ironically we avoided due to Roland Rat being a disinterested tight whatsit since 2016.

    I pretty much don't believe everything I read anywhere (notably CL!) but assess everything on it's own merit whatever the publication  B)
