Everton expect second hearing to start next month

Everton have confirmed that they are satisfied with the appeal verdict that saw the ten-point deduction reduced to six. 

The Toffees will face another round of hearings for breaching the PSR rules and they could face further point deductions.

The Times journalist, Henry Winter has pointed out that there is a feeling that an even-handed judgment will be handed next time, after they received a sensible verdict in the first case.

Sky Sports journalist Alan Myers has shared on X that the second hearing is likely to start next month. The Toffees can expect an outcome by April, and they are likely to appeal again, and the final verdict should be dealt with no later than 24th May.

It means the Toffees will continue to stay in uncertainty but now they are five points above the drop zone. Most importantly, they have got some clarity now.

“The second hearing is likely to start next month with an outcome in April, then an appeal, if needed, which should be dealt with no later than 24th May,” wrote Myers on X.

Huge boost for Everton

When the ten-point deduction was made back in November, many felt that it was not only harsh but excessive as well. It was the biggest punishment meted to any club in the Premier League history.

Everton’s lawyers will probably point out the Russian war against Ukraine and how it affected their financial plans, but we can only speculate at the moment.

MP Caroline Dinenage took to X to show her support for Everton and has urged the independent body to sort out other issues at the earliest.

Everton now must focus on the games coming up and try to extend the gap with the bottom three. Sean Dyche has done an incredible job but they have been really poor in recent games.

They have failed to win a single Premier League game in 2024, and that needs to change. The Toffees must believe now that they can climb high up the table, and avoid the drop.
