In my opinion it has nothing to do with who will or won't go down this season.
The absolute facts are that WHU fielded an illegible player... in the past that has been at least a 3 point penalty.
The 5.5M is nothing compared to Premiership survival.
If someone had said to Paul Jewell/Neil Warnock/Alan Pardew et al, give us 5M at the beginning of the season and we'll award you 3 points they'd all have taken it.
It's very disappointing to think that the fact that WHU have someone close to the FA would in anyway influence the penalty.
WHU should have a minimum of 3 points deducted - end of story.
On a similar note. I can't believe that the fact that L**ds have gone in to administration before the season ends means that they've had a points deduction this season instead of next.
What must Rotherham United fans be thinking at this moment?
