If I want any information about where we stand on FFP and stadium sale/value I go onto Small Heath Alliance where they all seem very clued up and well briefed on the matter.

Their (Villa) match threads move faster than ours, too.

Start a new Jack Grealish thread on here today and then start one over on Small Heath Alliance. Check back in a week to compare how many posts/pages are on each thread. I know which my money would be on.

How do people think they are going to account for the current situation with FFP.

They might have to scrap it?

I doubt there are many clubs anywhere in compliance.
Itís now meaningless, the authorities will be focusing on getting the gravy train back on the rails.

Agreed. The whole concept was flawed (by design) from the beginning. Either allow clubs to spend what they want, or put in restrictions across the board. None of this 'well, let's allow Man Utd to spend £250m every window and limit Bournemouth to £7.50 and a Dominos voucher, that'll make things competitive'.

If they're worried about clubs going bust, as they claim, the legislation should put the emphasis on owners/investors to cover the cost of any contracts agreed under their ownership, and invest a certain percentage of their previous season-by-season investments over, say, a three-year period, prior to selling the club.

Don't have the finances to cover this? Don't buy a football club. Worried some owners may not abide by the agreement? Take a deposit equivalent to the value of the club being bought upon purchase, with the deposit only refundable if the club is still solvent within 5 years of an eventual sale.

Couldn't really give a shit if this discourages investment. The fact that many clubs are operating at a loss without owner investment shows how sickeningly money-oriented the game has become.

Nice idea Rory.
There are relatively simpler ways to manage solvency and excess under normal circumstances.
FFP is a disgrace and  cobbled together by idiots or crooks.

I dislike FFP.  It may have prevented some clubs getting into difficulty but for me it was always more about pulling the drawbridge up.

But if this Newcastle takeover does happen it could turn out to be a blessing in disguise.  It would have been horrific seeing them do a City.

If the FFP rules are on this season's accounts and no further games are played, I would imagine that most clubs within Europe will not comply with FFP rules.

Not if it means we are up there competing with them, rather than constantly having to look to sell our best players so that the league remains, ahem, "competitive".
