Points deduction special – latest episode of our Sheffield Wednesday podcast talking EFL charge verdict and the future for the Owls

Eight months after the charge was filed, three months after the season should have finished, nine days after it did - Sheffield Wednesday finally have the verdict from their EFL charge for breaching financial regulations.

Saturday, 1st August 2020, 2:39 pm

And after a 12 point deduction was implemented for next season, we pressed the emergency podcast button to deliver a special episode of The Star Owls.

Host Liam Hoden is joined by The Star's Wednesday writers Alex Miller and Joe Crann to get their heads around what we know so far about the decision and what it means for the future of the club.
