  • POLL: Is Financial Fair Play actually 'fair'?

    Thought it would be worth taking a poll, as there seems to be some differences of opinion on the forum lately.

    Not easy, but try to answer as objectively as possible.

    The sanctions against us aside - that is a separate issue. The question here is are FFP rules in fact 'fair' or do they still advantage the bigger clubs?

    Clearly a corrupt plan to keep the bigger sides at the top and on the gravy train.

    disgraceful.

        Nothing fair about it mate. Said it a million times, it only serves to keep the elite clubs perched right at the top of world football.

        That being said, there is a very real problem, particularly in English football with clubs living beyond their means that needs addressing. But there are far more intelligent ways of addressing it than fining clubs that are often already in trouble financially.

            Yes, and to argue that side of the case, naturally the discussion can be expanded to discuss ways in which the rules could indeed be made 'fairer'...

              I struggle with it but can see both sides as I get itís intention but if your an owner of the club and you want put money in why should you be prevented.

              If the concern is clubs going bust then perhaps alternative is if your billionaire owner who wants to spend then whatever you do spend above what club earns, you have to put % aside into private pot which the club gets back if you sell them with debts or you get back if you leave them in good position. Your kind of taxing the owner who can afford it and protecting club same time

                Personally I just think better controls on spending and better regulations are required.

                It's the way any other industry would work. If there are repeated problems happening within an industry that affect the general public (i.e. the fans), typically in the West the government step in and impose regulations. The financial industry is a great example.

                As a side note (and this would be a gradual process), there needs to be something done to lower expectations that players have. I remember back in the day Patrick Agyemang used to drive to training in a Bentley. Bang average Championship player who only had 1 good season, and he can afford a Bentley? Of course clubs in the 2nd tier of English football are going to have ongoing financial issues if these are the expectations they are trying to satisfy!

                  To ensure a level playing field there should be a wage cap and spending limits introduced to all clubs in the relative divisions. Such as happens in both forms of Rugby.

                  Of course, there should be a limit on loan players and size of squads as well. Chelsea having 60 players out on loan is completely absurd and another examle of how big clubs get bigger and little clubs get crumbs. A scandal.

                          Heaven forbid we should have an interesting, reasoned, relevant to Rs discussion about a football related matter rather than rant on about shi'te that no one really gives a toss about.
