Everton: In the midst of a “historically bad” Premier League season, Paul Brown explains the 12-point deduction decision.



The Premier League has suggested the Toffees take such a hit in its case against them for breaking profit and sustainability regulations, according to the Telegraph (October 25, 2010).

After 12 games played, the Merseyside team has 14 points, good for 14th place in the Premier League standings.

“Obviously the 12 points that people fear would be the maximum punishment, nobody can be sure that they would be docked 12 points, it would be entirely up to a commission to decide,” Brown told GIVEMESPORT.

“There’s no precedent for this really so it’s hard to guess what they could end up with. I would say though that if you ever are to get a points deduction this might not be the worst year to incur one because the teams at the bottom are currently putting up numbers that are historically bad in the Premier League.

“I don’t think a team who’s lost as many games as Burnley at this stage of the season have ever managed to stay up in Premier League history, and Sheffield United came very close to having the same record at the weekend.”

inadequate standards

It’s true that Everton’s opponents in the Premier League are having a terrible season; Burnley, Sheffield United, and Luton Town, three freshly promoted teams, are struggling the most.

In what has been an incredibly disappointing start to their once-exciting Premier League careers, the trio has only won three of their twelve games combined.

Burnley is at the bottom of the standings with four points, followed by Sheffield United in 19th place and Luton Town in 18th place with five and six points, respectively.

However, Nottingham Forest, Fulham, and Bournemouth—all regulars in the top flight—are all experiencing issues. Furthermore, despite their recent ascent in the standings, Sean Dyche’s Everton team won’t be feeling overly optimistic just yet.

The Toffees, on the other hand, are unquestionably the most successful of those teams and now appear to be safe from the dreaded drop this season.
