Interesting thread 

 

 

Looks like rather than sanctions and fines, the EFL will look to work with the club and give them a time period to get back within the FFP limits.

Wasn't it always the case that you can have show losses show long as you can show a plan to reduce those losses ? 

I think my  "Villa Aid" concert idea will be in the plan.

I remember almost a decade ago reading Peter Scudamore saying how much the "big four" had helped the Premier league in Asian markets

Was that when he was assistant trainer in the Twiston-Davies yard? ;)

Well that's the wage bill reduced by what? Half a mill today?  Maybe a whole Million.

John percy reporting that we need to raise £50 million in the next two windows. 

I saw the same exact story released by two papers at exactly the same time.

If this exists then they should give some sort of substantive reason.

So for example we have saved about 17 million in wages just by letting the loan players go and a few transfers..... is that included? How about the fee for Amavi? The Recon deal for the training ground etc.

Its all airy fairy to me and for me to take it seriously I need some substance rather than a throw away line, they can be more specific if they have actual information.

Educated and perhaps slightly OTT estimate.

I think we will sell Grealish and one of Chester or kjodia - and offers for anyone else that comes in. But I think most of us are already resigned to that.

We've seen a few beautiful figures banded about the papers lately - bearing in mind that any figure they use will be exagerated, as that is what they always do, then the real figure is probably about half - as we've all assumed for some time. Nothing story.

The modern game is first and foremost a television rights entity, that's where its value lies. It's a sporting entity second. I remember almost a decade ago reading Peter Scudamore saying how much the "big four" had helped the Premier league in Asian markets - having a settled group of teams at the top allows for viewers in other regions to more easily access the league. 

If a man in China picks Chelsea as his English team, he can be fairly sure they'll be modestly successful for some time; they'll be involved at the top and that will keep him interested. You need enough of those teams to allow for choice, but you don't want too many - too many teams like that is like a soap opera with too many new characters, it's hard to keep track of and your favourite might not be involved in as many stories. If that happens, people will turn over to Eastenders.....sorry, I mean La Liga.

TV wants leagues like they have in Scotland and Spain, the Premier league is probably a tiny bit too top heavy for them at the moment - big teams aren't making the Champions league - they'll find a way to fix that. It doesn't want someone like Southampton suddenly finding a fortune and pushing into the top 4. That'd be like when Jeremy Renner became Bourne - it'd be confusing and devalue the franchise. FFP is primarily about protecting the value of TV rights by keeping the cast list for the show nice and consistent.

 

 

I know what you are saying and I remember the big six threatening to start their owne league if the Premier League didnt give in to them.I also remember the clubs in the old european cup making noises about having a league ( so they can get even more $$$ )What I dont understand is that supporters would prefer to watch leagues, like Germany,Belgium,Scottish,Spain etc etc where the only real interest is who is going to finish 3rd.Even the champions league is like one of these leagues now.Its got to the stage where the only games I watch live are Villa and the FA Cup final.Other games like Manure Vs Liverpool or Spurs Vs Man $ity I tape and watch the game the next day, sometimes I only watch the hilites.Surely PPL like me are in the majority and not the minority.

Because of all this I cant understand what the Premier League are doing with their FFP rules.What are they actually trying to achieve, another La Leiga or SPL or Bundesliga or what FFS.
