With FFP crippling us does anybody have any idea on how much we are able to spend this transfer window? I cannot get my head around it all tbh. Big teams keep on spending and the rest don’t seem to be allowed.

£37. As long as they agree to installments ?.

Might be worth asking one of the Ed’s. Is it a case of we have to sell to buy but can reinvest that money or is the state so bad we can expect to sell Richarlison for example just to cut the debt with nothing going back into the team.

{Ed002's Note - The debt is less of an issue than being fiscally responsible and working within the FFP rules.}

Think a lot goes on saveing outgoing wages of players who are out of contract and sales of players ie Richy, if he goes.

You earn more, you spend more. Pretty simple.

For us it's all about the wage bill, and the ridiculous payouts to managers etc.

We are at least coming to the end of the worst of the player outlay, and I'd like to think we should only have the 1 ex manager to pay off, where at one point I think it was 3 or 4. So I think as long as we can cut the wage bill closer to 70% of turnover rather than 90% or whatever it is now then things will start to look a lot better.

FFP is a complete load of nonsense by the sounds of things.

It makes sense to stop teams becoming crippled with debt and no longer able to exist but it does feel very much like it will create a monopoly for those teams with the infrastructure / ability to generate the biggest channels of income (top 6) . Not all teams can dine at the top table paying the prices for the best players anymore.

I’d like to see some sort of wage cap to help spread the talent around the league and make every game more competitive. It would never happen as the richest clubs wouldn’t want it and would point out their success should be rewarded.

Let’s go back to £20 a week and start again. At least we had proper footballers then. Not everyone remembers those days.

{Ed025's Note - a shilling a week and all the tripe you could eat. Halcyon days indeed Brian .. ?

A. We are not skint.
B. Without FFP we would be able to service debt but many Clubs would not be able to.
C. FFP set the rules, I don't agree with it, but Clubs signed up to it. D. I think we got away with our irresponsibility last season (s) , we will not get away with it again.
E. Expectations (transfers) etc! need to be tempered, free transfers and hidden gems is the priority.

Make a lot of sense DFS but don't mistake our owners wealth with Evertons. We are very much skint. When an owner converts debt to shares to help the balance sheet then you are by definition skint!

17 Jun 2022 13:05:54
EFCONE, I mean not Skint (without FFP) while we have an owner (s) willing to subsidise the business. The £500 mill takeover rumour is, coincidentally what Mr Moshri has spent. I would not expect him (or Usmanov) to accept that.

DFS, if an owner can recoup the majority of their outlay then they have done well in the football world. I read an article which speculated that FM had been spooked by the threat of relegation almost becoming a reality last season. He would have lost millions if we had gone down so maybe that's one reason for him to at least listen to what others have to say.

On top of that, the dynamics changed when AU was sanctioned by the government. If he can't invest in or sponsor the club then FM had lost a lot of revenue streams that he didn't expect to. Maybe it's the right move for all parties involved?
