Bristol City owner Steve Lansdown has an opinion about what the “punishment” should be for Leeds in regards to “spygate.”

So Landsown thinks there should be a points deduction? Well so what.

It’s up the EFL and the FA to decide what to do about this, and if clubs can escape points deductions for FFP shenanigans, breaking rules in regards to third-party owned players, and other such nonsense, then why would Leeds get a points deduction for not actually breaking any rule?

This is all so stupid.

On to the links.
