    I have this morning ( and for the 4th time in a week) contacted the EFL via their on-line form (they don't read emails sent to the enquiry box). Yesterday I did get a 'standard' response to one of my emails, but nothing to write home about. Below is a copy of the email I sent this morning. I intend to keep sending them communication on a regular basis-:

    Good morning, yet again.
    Not only have you, as an organisation, been complicit in allowing the current situation at Charlton Athletic to drag on for nearly 8 months without ANY resolution as to the ownership of the club by East Street Investments, which in itself is a corporate failing, you have now shown no backbone or courage to properly sanction Sheffield Wednesday F.C for being found guilty of cheating. You have, once again, dodged the simple decision to relegate a team, who by cheating, were able to afford players, way beyond the means of other Championship Clubs, which gave them an unfair advantage against many of the other clubs.
    Your duty is NOT to reward cheats, but in this case you have. Instead of acting decisively and strongly, you have taken the cowardly decision to delay the points deduction to next season, hence NOT punishing Sheffield Wednesday for the cheating they undertook THIS season. It has taken 8 months and 17 days to come to this decision, and in your heart of hearts you know the decision is wrong. The points deduction should have taken place now, and Sheffield Wednesday should be playing in League 1 season 20/21.
    You were very quick to relegate Wigan Athletic via a points deduction imposed THIS season, you gave points deductions to BCFC last season, in the season, yet on this occasion you defer.
    The EFL have lost any sense of purpose and in many peoples eyes are verging on being corrupt. The situation you have made for yourselves currently can be overturned, by simply making the CORRECT decision. Sadly, I and many 1000's of other football fans across the country, do not expect you to grow a spine and reverse your decision and relegate Sheffield Wednesday now, and we hold you in complete contempt. The quicker a government led investigation into your running of the EFL is started the better, and the quicker you, as spinless cowards, will be looking for new positions, or better still be part of the unemployment figures.
    Your actions have been disgraceful.
    Yours

    Well if that doesn’t engender a reaction nothing will

    While I appreciate the sentiment of contacting them, i cant see it making any difference at all.

    I'd be surprised if the form makes it any further than a customer service agent.

    They will get a response that has been pre written by someone in PR for the EFL.

    The odd thing about the Wednesday decision is that the reason given for the deferral of the punishment is that the hearing was always going to conclude when it did, so there was never any danger of being able to punish them this season, until the lockdown. My problem with that is, if that was the case, it could've been widely recognised months ago. Seems like a Cummings style story where they work their way back to create a story to cover themselves.

    I am 100% behind this supporter, and if Wigan are reprieved, I'll be doing the same.

    Really? you reckon the EFL will respond to that?

    I'm afraid the EFL will just file that under "B" (that's B for Bin or ******)

    The problem is that clubs don't back other clubs. There will be no united front or combined force to challenge the EFL. Everyone is alright jack until they are themselves wronged at which point they are on their own to fight their battle.

    The reply from EFL...

    Dear Mr/Ms Red Midland

    Thank you for your letter.
    We as an organisation are proud of our record in governance of The English Football League, and pleased that your positive letter acknowledges that.
    We can assure you that the EFL have thoroughly investigated issues raised by yourself, and you will be pleased to hear, that we, as an organisation, have found ourselves to have acted perfectly properly.
    We feel sure you will be heartened that, in this particular case, our decision has gone above and beyond the standards expected, so much so that the EFL have decided to purchase a pie for every Charlton Athletic supporter to redeem at half time in your League 1 away games during the 2020/21 season.
