Just seen a couple of clips on YOUTUBE of Purslow appearing on Talk Sport - talks about FFP and makes some very interesting points .

He also stated that Villa's wage bill this season is half of the amount that each of the supposed "big 6" are paying.

Ratcliffe was talking about changing the wage structure at Manure the other day. Citeh players are apparently on loads of bonuses to knock them up to 350k a week with all their wins last season (they earned £300million as a club with the wins).

Manure start at £300k a week average and was £515k a week for Ronaldo.

Easier said than done isn't it? Offloading the current squad on those contracts is difficult given they're unlikely to get it elsewhere, then you've got FFP restricting the market and the fact most of those players have stunk the place out.

I can see us selling Matty Cash. A good chunk of his fee will have been amortised already, would hold decent value in the market and we can find someone who will fit Emery's system better.

Dendoncker and Duran to go. £4m incoming for Sanson. Those 4 could bring in up to £50m.

I suppose I don't mind a very tight market, as that pretty much means everyone's stuck with however good the coach is they happen to have. And ours is one of the best, so that suits us.

I know LeeB, that was my exact thinking. Citeh have been successful going on 10 years now. Manure have not. So anyone coming in will be looking at the immediate big money someone like Rashford or Fernandez is on, and if you tried to sell them on "success" bonuses, will rightfully point out why they would prefer cash in hand rather then whistling for it. I also do wonder how win bonuses work with FFP nowadays?

Don't we still "own" Coutinho as well?

Yes. It would be a big boost if somebody took him off our hands/wage bill.

One thing we do know is that Everton and Forest are being done for last years accounts, so we’re fine up to then. This year we’ve got our highest ever gate receipts plus UECL prize money, next year the Adidas deal. Maybe Heck being bullish about signing other clubs’ best players wasn’t bullshit (for a change).

That would be gutting, he's been so consistent since the arrival of Emery and under Smith he has been one of my favourite players. I always thought he was underrated for the work he did and the ease in the way he plays.

He would add quality to any midfield in any team.

Yes I think we will have to sell one of our better players for a premium fee in the summer. It will be disappointing but if it allows us to strengthen in other areas and stay within the PSR then it should have long-term benefits.

I hate that we even have to consider this as it’s being forced on us but the long term viability of the club comes first.

Or Chris Heck?

They hate cocksuckers there, too, so they should get on like a house ablaze.

I wonder (hope), based on his early season form when his goals and assists were very good, he may do a Bailey and be brilliant next season. So the Saudi’s can do one.

Much as it pains me to say it, I think big emi will go. The drop-off between the worlds number 1 and any reserve is too big. £100m for Emi and replace him with at least 2 very good keepers would improve our squad and solve ffp in one go.
