    World Cup : Group H (Pol, Sen, Col, Jpn)

    We could do with him if we can't keep Johnstone.

    They did, you're not meant to get red cards for penalties anymore to avoid "triple-punishment". The exception, however, is for players deliberately denying goal-scoring opportunities, or basically, outright cheating like Sanchez did.

    Basically, Wyness **** up. We should be paying the tax soon. Apparently, HMRC tends to threaten winding up orders to get business to pay up from what I've read. Palace were threatened with the same thing recently.

    Which version of FM? On the latest update, Terry is on £60k pw at Villa.

    There's no way Terry is on £100k pw, most reports suggest it's closer to £50k-60k pw.

    Kind of hard to be annoyed at a managers substitutions and reactions to a game before the game has even started. And there were plenty of grumbles and angry shouts around me before/when he started making the subs at Wembley, mostly along the lines of "Make some **** subs" and "Why would he do that?"

    If we sack him, we have to pay him off, if Leeds poach him, Leeds have to pay us for him, no point announcing he's leaving yet if Leeds might take him. If he's leaving anyway that is.

    Villa and FFP

    It's because FFP is more geared towards stopping another Man City than it is stopping another Portsmouth.

    That's not how it works, a panel decides what punishment you get, it's not a three strike system.

    If we fail FFP we face a points deduction and possibly demotion, so we can't just "pay the fine"!

    If I remember rightly the company we've gone with for manufacturing (Fanatics I believe) structure the way they sell the kits in such a way that the club gets a much bigger slice of the revenue, meaning going with this route means instead of getting a couple £m from a sponsorship deal and barely anything from the sales, we get a little less in sponsorship (and as such we can go to smaller more passionate brands) but shirt sales mean more to us financially. Someone who knows this stuff better than me correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that's the gist of it.

    It's £39m and the £45m is the worst case scenario shortfall we have to make up I believe.

    If £40m is the starting offer, then we should hold out for an amount that would completely wipe out any FFP worries.

    There's no way of knowing that currently, especially not from the statement. He could be the richest man in the world, it would mean **** all though as FFP wouldn't allow him to invest any of it.

    New Manager Speculation

    Both Garcia and the two previous managers were sacked for having problems with the dressing room, which points more to a toxic team environment than the managers failing.
