  1. It would be stupid to accept £10m for Forestieri in a day and age where Madine is sold for £6m
  2. Stoke want Forestieri and Brum and Boro want Bannan from "cash strapped" Sheffield Wednesday https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/middlesbrough-transfer-rumours-sheffield-wednesday-14782828
  3. I've got to say I'm slightly suprised we haven't been put into an embargo now tbh. We lost a combined £30m from 15/16-16/17 and I thought the football league would be requesting up to date accounts of the season just gone too, which no doubt shows a loss of way more than £9m to take us over the £39m threshold, in which case like I said I'm a little suprised were not in an embargo this summer. The only thing I can think is maybe the actual accounts submitted to the FL aren't the losses we've all seen, for example it's possible the £20m loss we last posted, maybe only £15m of it counts towards FFP, but even then I'm clutching at straws, can't see how we've spent £5m on infrastructure or similar that don't count towards FFP. Or maybe we've given the FL assurances we have a plan to get back in line this summer, D taxis is coming soon ya know
  4. I was going to post similar myself, but there's none so blind as those who will not see, so thought fecck it.

    Joao’s contract

    When I try to sign a pre contract with a player from another English club on Football Manager, it won't let me, because its against the rules. Football Manager knows everything so I'm happy to accept that rule as fact

    FFP and all that.

    If a vote by all championship clubs could happen now with regards to scrapping FFP completely, how many do we think would vote to get rid of it now? My guess would be the vast majority. FFP was brought in at a time where clubs were going into administration left right and centre, since then the tv rights for the premier league have gone up to astronomical levels, attracting some of the world's wealthiest people to buying into championship clubs in an attempt to join the party. Very wealthy owners in the championship now want to invest their money, they are happy to see it as an investment/risk to themselves, not a loan that could harm the club they own, as long as they can guarantee to the football league the club's future is not at risk, and any losses a club post each year is covered by said owner, then what's the point of FFP in the current climate?
