    You aren't getting compensation. We may get a fine, but Watford have waived their rights to any compensation by leaving the arbitration process.

    A points deduction will more than adequate compensation as far as I’m concerned. We’ll see what happens, but one thing is certain, Everton will not get away with what they did.

    Here's the Everton statement after today's punishment.

    "We are extremely disappointed with some of the practices we have found which are not in line with our values and not acceptable to Everton Football Club.

    "We have already commenced a full review of our academy operations and are committed to ensuring that issues like this do not happen again at Everton."

    Roughly translated it means, "We are extremely disappointed that some of our practises, which are in line with the values of Everton Football Club, have been found out.

    We have already commenced a full review of our academy operations and if we can pin this on an employee, we will do and throw him under the bus"

    We shall see. It's not impossible, but would be unprecedented - points deductions have only been seen in the last 25 years or so for financial issues. Even West Ham didn't get a points deduction over the Tevez affair. I think it's v unlikely, but you never know.

    Of course, there's always the possibility that The FA decide there's not enough evidence to support the allegation - in which case I reckon I'd probably have to leave the forum here as I'll probably be about as welcome as a Tory on Merseyside

    The only punishment severe enough would be for you to have to post daily in our Politics section.

    Some in there make Degsy sound like Jacob Rees Mogg.

    I used to live opposite Degsy about 10 years ago, coincidentally when I moved back here from Herts.

    I no longer live there :)

    Put two on at once and you can capture 1 saggy ball in each.

    Perhaps they'll be banned for two years from recruiting a new manager.
