    POLL: Is Financial Fair Play actually 'fair'?

    Yes, it's fair

    FUP: 'Financial UNFAIR Play' would be a more accurate description

    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?

In one case, documents from Cityís chief financial officer, Jorge Chumillas, appear to show the Abu Dhabi United Group, Mansourís holding company which also owns City, directly paid £59.5m of Etihadís annual sponsorship, with only £8m coming from the airline.

    That was last November

    What was stopping Air Asia doing the same when they were our sponsors ?

    A load of absolute nonsense dreamed up by people who had to justify having a job at the EFL.

    How the hell can FFP be fair if one club can spend £200M and another is not be allowed to spend the same? Not that all can spend the same? Or will be able to due to maybe their owners not being that wealthy.
    I understand that we don't want a club/clubs to go to the wall, but if it's solely the owners debt, their money that they spend and not to the detriment of the club, i.e. raised against the clubs assets i.e their grounds/ training grounds, whether it be £100M or £1B who are people to say where and what they do with their money,
    You will still have the divide you have now because some clubs have richer owners who won't mind spending their money and taking on the debt for success, FFPt was a totally flawed idea,
    Basically I think UEFA and the FA> bought it in to try and stop a few clubs just running away with things, i.e. Chelsea when they spent their way to success and now the likes of Man City and PSG with their untold riches/wealth,
    It happened when Jack Walker done the same at Blackburn, Man Utd did the same they out spent everyone
    It's a fact of Football that most of the times the big rich clubs will have most of the success, but on the odd occasion there will be a club who gets promoted or wins a title,(Leicester)
    And if a club has a sugar Daddy who's prepared to do it ( like we did for a short while) so be it. the likes of Chelsea Arsenal & Man Utd are moaning now is Because Man City have taken it to another level with their spending power,

    Football is a corrupt cesspool of amoeba gorging themselves on 'matter' that is oblivious to their own rape and disdain.

    Bolton will be calling in the hmrc according to the owner.
    Bloody hell. So soon after the last time too. One thing i do blame is the culture in football that players have to be paid utter stupid amounts of money. And clubs are running scared that the players they try and sign will go elsewhere if they don't pay them what they want. Time for ALL football clubs to let players know they won't be held to ransom and they have to try to lower the players expectancy all over because the tv money won't be there forever. More and more clubs will go bust and face wind up and ffp sanctions over the next 10 years simply because they pay players wages they clearly don't need.
