Charlton Athletic are considering taking legal action against the EFL following the news that Sheffield Wednesday’s 12 point deduction will be imposed next season.

"The Owls finished 16th in the Championship, eight points clear of the relegation places. Had the EFL elected to impose the deduction now, taking it away from their 2019-20 total, then they would have found themselves in the third tier next term - with the Addicks staying in the Championship.

Charlton have labelled the decision “irrational”, particularly given Wigan’s recently-imposed 12-point penalty after going into administration. "The club is considering a legal challenge following the news that Sheffield Wednesday will receive a sporting sanction that will take effect in the 2020/21 season,” a club statement read. “Sheffield Wednesday were charged in November 2019 for breaching the EFL’s Profitability and Sustainability Rules for the three-season reporting period ending with Season 2017/18."

There appears to be so much legal action going on that its a good job the season is starting so late.

Will they even get the fixtures out for a Chrimbo start?
Who are you calling pedantic? I resemble that remark!

Understandable and correct decision. The EFL have followed the rule book to the letter.

Can anyone explain why Wigan got their 12 point deduction this season, and hence relegation, but Sheffield Wednesdays point deduction was deferred to next season?

Wigan got the 12 deduction because the league rules state that a club gets 12 point deduction if the company goes into administration.

Wigan went into administration hence the rule book kicked in.

Don’t fully understand the Sheff Wed situation but didn’t think the rules for Wednesday’s issue are tightly worded and have such don’t have clear cut sanctions.

Because Wigan are a small club and Wednesday are a bigger one??
You could imagine exactly the same scenario in the Premier League if it was Arsenal and Burnley in the dock.

I think, it may be because although Wednesday's offence was committed within the season, the actual judgement
(very suspiciously in my mind) didn't come out until after the season had finished. Therefore any penalty can only be imposed at the start of next season.

But, don't quote.
