Financial Fair Play

Postby Big George on Fri Aug 10, 2018 10:45 am

For years the board have quoted FFP as the reason why they have been so miserly in the transfer spending over the last 8 years.

This is from 2014: ... eague.html

So what has changed? Are we to believe that we are much richer than we were previously?

What penalties will we face if we are breaching FFP?

Or was is all typical BS from the club?

Apparently between 2005 - 2010 we lost recorded an aggregate net loss of £90.2 million, I think that's the reason for our spending more than FFP, but hopefully FFP stops clubs running up losses like that and going bankrupt.

We are also I believe entering a new FFP assessment period this season (current season plus previous two seasons) so that has a baring, if we have posted good figures previously.

I was going to say, maybe they hid behind FFP to line their own pockets.

But I think..

'Perhaps it was all b*llocks in the first place' is more apt for our board.

It definitely exists, but as other clubs have shown there are loads of ways to get around it if you want to, our lot didn't want to, and used it to their advantage.

They were the only ones to ever mention it, no other clubs our size or smaller were making noises about it at the time.

They simply used it as a curtain to hide behind, while they stuffed their pockets with cash.
