How many points do you think we'll be deducted? (excluding suspended)

Roughly, how many teams might actually be affected end of season in terms of pot and promotion or relegation? (requiring opinion, not fact that can't be ascertained at this stage) It surely won't be the whole of the league, so the complainers should be minimised somewhat?
Our relegation rivals: if we take anyone averaging around a point per game or less, that's
• Southend
• McDons
• Wombles
• Accy
• Tranmere
• Lincoln

• Rochdale

Promotion: under the MacAnthony Argument, anyone who played our weakend team got an unfair advantage. That's
• Wycombe (currently 1st)
• Ipswich (currently 2nd)
• Coventry (currently 3rd - although they failed to beat us)
• Rotherham (currently 6th - stretching a point slightly but that's what folks like MacAnthony do)
• Gillingham (currently 14th)
• Tranmere (currently 18th)

You can also throw in
Doncaster, who might (incredibly uncharitably) feel the EFL should have made us play the game against them

It's three points for a win (which complainants may say the EFL effectively handed to some teams), and if you draw a three-point zone below those listed above who beat us, you can also add in
• Oxford
• Fleetwood
• Sunderland
• Bristol Rovers
• Shrewsbury
(all four within 3pts of Rotherham), plus
Burton
• Rochdale
• Lincoln
(all within 3pts of Gillingham), plus
• Accy
• Wombles
• McDons
(all within 3pts of Tranmere)

As far as I can see, the only two teams which aren't directly affected in one way or other by the first six "walkover" games we played (and the one we didn't, and our resultant punishment) are Blackpool and Peterborough, and one of their chairmen is sabre-rattling about court cases.

So yeah, they've really f*cked it up this time.
Wow...Cheers D.S.B

Wow wow wow. Twitter saying we’ve only been given a suspended 5 point deduction!
Yes 5 points suspended plus a fine
17 points in total we've been penalised then, and still there'll be hounds baying for our blood.

It’s suspended Tango, so unless we start calling more games off then we’re in the clear.

I mean that’s better than anyone could have dreamed. Doncaster will be fecking livid. The least I expected was that game to be given to them. Now we get to go back there and spank them 😂

It's subject to appeal. Our celebrations might well be premature.

Aye, subject to that appeal which will surely come from some direction or other. We can but hope the good fairy wins....

Well, now we CAN stay up. Never expected no more points. Changes things hugely. Two less wins needed at least.

Going off the last 2 paragraphs in the EFL’s own statement that doesn’t look likely to me.

It mentions that it’s subject to appeal, then says the Doncaster game will be rearranged ASAP.
