News of Everton’s appeal as Premier League chief exacerbates the situation

Dan Plumley has expressed dissatisfaction with Richard Masters’ comments regarding Everton and Nottingham Forest, stating that such remarks do not contribute positively to the atmosphere surrounding the appeal at Goodison Park.

The Premier League chief seemed to characterize these two English clubs as “small”

in comparison to powerhouses like Manchester City.

Plumley, a football finance expert, acknowledged that the choice of words was not ideal,

particularly considering the significant issues at hand with the ongoing appeal process.

He emphasized that these issues are complex, especially for Everton, which was under

different ownership when the regulations were initially introduced, and Nottingham

Forest, a club distant from the Premier League.

He highlighted that despite the challenges, the clubs had voted on these regulations, and now they are facing consequences.

Plumley suggested that the situation is unraveling, and while the first appeal for

Everton has been heard, the second charge is yet to be addressed, with an expected response by mid-February.

The apparent condescension from the Premier League, as reflected in Masters’ comments, is seen as another instance of looking down on Everton.

The hope is that the appeal barrister, Lawrence Rabinowitz, KC, present during the

match against Tottenham on February 3, is optimistic about a favorable outcome for Everton.
