You’d be hard pressed to find anyone that believes Everton’s 10-point deduction for financial irregularities is a proportionate penalty, and that includes Mayor of Liverpool, Steve Rotherham.
The Toffees have a week to put their appeal together and they will be backed by Mr. Rotherham.
He has already written to the Premier League on the club’s behalf to criticise their heavy-handedness with regards to the punishment metered out.
Whether this will have any effect on how the appeal is dealt with won’t be known for a while yet.
