Everton FFP hearing: Premier League claims failure in front of independent commission Jordan, Simon

The problem remains a source of concern for the Toffees until the commission issues its verdict, but if Jordan is correct that the case against them did not go very well, it could be a positive sign for the club.

It appears that Everton have placed themselves in a situation where their fate is related to many outside influences, such as Manchester City’s reported 100-plus violations and the danger of an independent regulator on the football authority.

But, with Sean Dyche barely keeping the team’s head above water with recent performances, he and the fans will be praying that another bad bombshell isn’t just around the corner.

The talkSPORT pundit spoke live on the station on October 26 and shared what he had heard from the hearing, where the league is attempting to prove the Toffees committed a single breach of profit and sustainability rules, with The Telegraph reporting on October 25 that they want a 12-point deduction imposed on the club.

Everton denies breaking the rules and will present their own case before the commission, but the former Crystal Palace chairman believes the plaintiffs did not get off to a good start.

White asked (11.06am): What type of message will be given if you don’t throw the book at them?

First and foremost, Jordan responded, it is not necessarily the independent commission’s role [to throw the book at anyone], because it is not the Premier League, but an independent panel.

The independent commission is chaired by a KC [King’s Counsel] who names three members to it, and the Premier League presents in front of it.

I saw the Premier League presentation last week, and it wasn’t really remarkable at first. They’ve improved their presentation slightly since then.

So the Premier League present their case and advance their arguments, and Everton will of course rebut the position and establish theirs, and from this will come some degree of consequence.

Flimsy case?

Since the league submitted the suspected violation to the independent commission in March, the team has been dogged by questions.

Prior to that, the club was allegedly working closely with the authorities on their spending, and they have claimed ever since that they would vigorously defend their position.

It is hard to predict the conclusion of the hearing with any precision, and while the Premier League appears to want to make an example of Everton with a record-breaking points deduction, it is not their decision to make.
