Otherwise it just fuels precisely this type of speculation.

Frig me, here we go again another conspiracy theory a bit like the players not playing because they were due bonuses and not injured! 

 

As as I said in a previous thread we are very close to FFP, biut have not broken it. There are 6 other clubs in this state the biggest of which is Villa. Mandaric will have to pay the taxman before he’s allowed to buy the club think Glasgow Rangers.

 

There will be more outgoings both because we need to trim the squad and the wage bill, but talk of an embargo is pure click bait from Radio Sheffield

Are we not selling and loaning players out to avoid an embargo? 

 

Jos has already said loan players are an option. We wont be signing anyone this season unless we sell big.

1. Embargoes are not secret. They get announced by the EFL.

 

2. The reporting period is Dec to Dec. We passed the last reporting period and the next one is Dec 18.

 

We do not have an embargo. It is likely we will get one Dec 18 if we don't get our house in order this transfer window.

An hypothetical question. 

 

Let's say we've been put on a transfer embargo because we've breached FFP levels by £5m. If we sell players & the incoming transfer fees & reduction in the wage bill realises £5m is the embargo automatically lifted?

Here we go.  100 fuckingpages of bed wetting nonsense.  Fill yer boots.

 

That’s its intention, it’s no longer the case that fans from rival clubs wait for the season to start before actually starting sheet off. Give as good as you get and then some, that’s what I say

History tells us one thing.

 

An impending embargo can be hidden, and dealt with - such as a quick influx of players to excite the fans.   We've been here before.   Think Clinton Morrison and co.

 

An actual embargo cannot be hidden and so no, I would suggest this is not this is the case.

 

 

Exactly

were very close to ffp, not past it, why would there be an embargo? We’ve already shed around 120-150k a week off the wage bill and brought in just under £3m with a bit more to come off Clare, people need to chill out, we’ve a HUGE squad and have quite a few players coming back from injuries, everything will be fine.

The Six clubs under an embargo should be named then or is this just a way of starting an unsubstantiated rumour so nobody has any means of dispelling the myth. Disappointing to see the manager put in this position by the the lack of fact gathering of the reporter but that doesn't surprise me.

Mate just texted me to say jos wouldn't deny it on an interview on radio Sheffield earlier. Is this correct?

 

Would explain us not bringing anyone in. 

 

What other texts has your mate sent you?

  • The earth is flat.
  • The moon is made of cheese.
  • Trump is the greatest leader the world has ever seen.
  • He loves you man, he really does.

You need to:

a) Work on getting some decent mates.

b) Think before posting total hearsay on Owlstalk knowing full well that it's source is about as credible as the Blunts strike partnership.

 

Apart from that, yeah, great thread.

lol

Anybody who thinks everything is hunky dory regarding FFP P and S whatever it's called is burying their head in the sand.

Two years of making bad signings on massive wages and long contracts has put us in the position of having to make major cuts this summer.

We probably have some form of self-imposed limit. Common sense suggests we are looking to chop a significant proportion of the wage bill before signing anyone. Don’t think any of this is breaking news.

Who do you think you are with your facts!?

 

Information like this does absolutely nothing for rampant speculation and widespread bed wetting!

Not sure why this is surprising people. DC Said himself last season we could have problems in 18/19 if we didn’t get promoted.

 

we gambled with big fees & wages. It hasn’t worked out....
