Everton believe that the punishment of deducting 10 points was “unjust” and “unfair” which will lead to them appealing it, according to the Liverpool Echo.
The news outlet reported on 21 November that the Toffees are planning to launch a formal appeal before the end of the week.
It’s expected that a resolution will be reached before the end of the 2023/24 season and that the Premier League still appoints panellists on the commission despite it being labelled “independent”.
Amidst the Everton faithful and the club itself, there lingers a profound sense of dismay and frustration stemming from the Premier League’s conspicuous absence of a comprehensive sanction policy” for financial regulations.
The revelation that the independent commission steadfastly refused to apply the Premier League’s subsequently adopted formula, despite yielding a similar outcome, only serves to compound the prevailing sense of injustice.
This will undoubtedly annoy fans and anyone who’s got a neutral view on this and it’s a shame that it happened in the first place.
Hope emanates from the Goodison Park faithful, expressed in the fervent belief that the appeal board will demonstrate astuteness in recognising the apparent ridiculousness of the judgment and adopt a more empathetic stance towards Everton’s plight.
The prevailing sentiment remains optimistic, with collective hope leaning towards a Premier League decision that, in the words of the fans, reverses this punitive measure or at the very least, mitigates its severity.
