Odd article. Ten teams are under embargo and “Some believe clubs are taking the penalty now” 

How would you control the timing of the embargo? The article also gives no indication on why/how clubs ended up under embargo? All the article says is admin problems not financial problems.

All very strange and doesn’t help that it’s in that paper!

The transfer window does not reopen until the summer. Some believe clubs are taking the penalty now hoping that they will be in a position to trade their way out of embargo when it reopens.

eh ???????. That makes absolutely no sense.

Sky reporting that Coventry are under an embargo as they haven’t submitted their accounts on time - due to COVID I suspect there are a fair few other clubs in the same situation which is where the Daily Fail story will have come from. As long as they’re submitted before the end of the season it won’t have an impact on any transfers...

 More ridiculous is the fact that the government have changed the rules on the dates for filing accounts due to the pandemic but the idiot EFL have stuck by the old dates so are penalising clubs....

Firstly, the EFL working against the interests of its member clubs yet again? No surprise there, then.

Secondly, what's the odds that the un-named sanctimonious git criticising those clubs on the list is from a team sitting relatively pretty on parachute payments? 

How does he expect other clubs to respond to the pandemic? With practically zero income and players on watertight contracts that they cannot get out of, clubs have no choice but to "overspend". There's been a lot of criticism of clubs furloughing non-playing staff but what options do they have, in all honesty? None.

There's no surprise accounts are being filed late. It must be an absolute nightmare for clubs to even begin to unravel the dire financial situations they find themselves in.

Possible points deduction and now embargo equates to League One football next season. 
We are currently in the biggest mess since the early 1980’s, and that nearly saw us go under altogether. 

A transfer embargo now means absolutely nothing in terms of our survival. It's not like we can get anyone in until the summer anyway and by then it's too late to impact this season.

Precisely. It seems to be that the EFL haven’t extended a deadline that the Government has given for companies to file their accounts. For reasons best known to themselves so probably just an administrative technicality but further evidence that although the “lights are on at the EFL, nobody is actually at home”. 🤷‍♂️

Way, way, way off the point I’m afraid and absolutely the wrong assessment of the situation.
